  1. That’s exactly how I would describe the cakes and pastries...gorgeous but tasteless. I recommend the ice cream and jelly beans! 😬
  2. That’s awesome! Congrats to all who were able to take advantage of this!
  3. That’s a good question and one we always consider. For us, we’d pay $50-100 more pp for a nonstop but likely no more than that. Maybe we are extreme, but every penny we save enroute is a penny to spend at our destination.
  4. DH likes Nevis so much for Pinneys Beach with Sunshine’s and Lime Grill (or something like that) that he wants us to go back again, despite the high price tag! Me, I liked all that, too, but don’t feel it’s necessary to pay the high price to repeat. Since you haven’t been, do it! Book through RC, though, because the ferries aren’t reliable enough IMO.

  6. It was not on the Regal or Royal last month. 😏
  7. My burger on the Constellation looked like a cafeteria grade burger and was pink on the inside! I never ordered another one onboard!
  8. Wow, what a special love story this blog ended up being!! Congratulations, Bob and Betsy; wishing you the very best in your new adventures as husband and wife! Thank you to all contributors for taking us along with you!
  9. Europe cruises are very port intensive and very exhausting but in the most wonderful way! I am always very ready for a sea day in Europe; they’re much needed for rejuvenation before reaching another set of ports. At the same time, when in Europe, you wanna see as much as you can so aim for enough Port days with a sprinkling of sea days.
  10. We did the Baltic on Princess last month on the starboard side. We ended up facing the port most days, but of course that may not be the case for you.
  11. The SkyTrain is your answer. You’ll have to lug your luggage a ways, but the cost is unbeatable at around $8 pp from the airport and around $5 from the cruise terminal.
  12. This is a horrible tragedy, but I don’t see at all how Royal Caribbean is to blame. Calling the pool deck the kids’ area is ludicrous. I remember on a Celebrity ship how some pool deck windows are open for air flow and remember thinking what a great idea that is. We all know how hot it gets in the Caribbean. The child should not have been put on an assumed window IMO, but I also don’t at all think the grandfather should be prosecuted. He’s likely just a man who adores his granddaughter and was trying to take good care of her when a tragic mistake occurred. I’ve watched the videos of the area, and to me, the difference in color should be obvious, but perhaps there was an eyesight issue. In any case, I can’t imagine the pain the family is enduring and hope that they can let go of blaming the cruise line and mourn the loss of their daughter.
  13. We walked from our hotel, then took the People Mover from the Piazzole Roma, and then walked the rest of the way. It’s doable. Just remember that there may be foot bridges to traverse with your luggage prior to getting on the People Mover.
