  1. I know this is an old topic, I was looking for the url (thanks for that!). No one posted the prices, so I thought I would. Looks like more expensive than on board, but you can pick the size you want instead of having to get the size they pick on board. No option for digital :/
  2. China would require a visa. For Japan you just need your passport. Totally normal thing to do. I'm told Kyoto is a nicer city; just something to consider when planning what to do in Japan! Here's some info from the people who make the rules: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Japan.html
  3. My Husband and I would have loved a TA if that had been our first cruise. Our first cruise (2017) was 6 days. We got engaged two months later and booked a TA for our honeymoon (this past May) and LOVED it. But we both really love down time. We were also on Carnival's newest ship that has tons of stuff to do on board. If you really want to try one, find one between January-May when the Atlantic is the least (typically) stormy. Pick a lower deck and towards the back of the ship (according to my friend who was in the Navy; most people will tell you low-and-middle of the ship). But there's just no way to guarantee you wont hit any weather. Bigger ships handle the weather better than small so that's another factor to consider when looking at options. Here is my blog post about my TA cruise: http://laurenofalltrades.blogspot.com/2018/06/horizon-transatlantic.html Note: Carnival doesn't normally do TAs. This one was it's one-time repositioning from Europe - where it was built.
