I was wondering how the wifi in the ports is because most of the time my family and I would be on the ports and not on the ship.

  • People who have been on a cruise to the Caribbean, what do you think are the best ports to go to and why?

    Best answer: Cayman Islands. There are more things to do and see there than any of the other islands. And they make the best rum cake in the world. All the other islands have to offer is sandy beaches and salty water. Once you've been on one beach and swam in the salty water, you've done them all. And although not... show more

    And although not strictly in the Caribbean, the Bahamas are also excellent. Again they offer more than sand and sea. They have Casinos and large resort hotels.

  • Are there any cruise ships that offer alcohol included in your cruise package?

    Best answer: the Luxury lines do, but the selections tend to be extremely basic and limited. every line sells a drink package. some will offer them up as an included perk, but the cost pf the cruise does reflect that.

  • How much does a waiter on a cruise ship typically make annually?

    Best answer: I just took a cruise.....and a 10 EURO , a head, tip is MANDATORY, and automatically charged to your cabin account. So, with my wife and son, that was a 30 EURO a day mandatory tip. Times that by the number of passengers on board.....plus their salary. I'm assuming they make decent money, but I am also... show more

    I'm assuming they make decent money, but I am also assuming there's a reason most of the wait staff is Filipino, Peruvian. or Mexican.

    and by the way.....cruise ship members are usually required to speak several languages, and often wear flag pins, of all the languages they speak.

    Those working in reception, will have no less than 5 or 6 pins. Even waiters and maids often have at least 2 or 3. Almost goes without saying, that English will need to be one of them.

    Hey everyone! I have a 2008 Chrysler 300 with a stock radio. When i play a CD or Aux or anything for that matter, sometimes the radio will make a loud popping noise through the speakers before audio cuts out. If i wait long enough itll pop again and audio will come back for a little bit. Sometimes itll make a static noise that even on volume 0 is still loud until I turn the whole stereo off. Its just an on and off thing thats annoying. Any suggestions how to fix it? Thanks!

  • If you bring a tumbler are you allowed to share mixed drinks on a cruise? 2 of 4 people in our party for Norwegian has a drink package.?

    Figured it would save a lot of money if the two of us ordered one drink and poured half in our partners cups.. just wondered if there was anything against policy for that?

Me, my sister and my son in a different room me and my son are getting the beds and I saw in a picture that the room had a couch but does it fold into a bed ? We took a cruise last summer but on carnival Triumph and the couch bed was perfect for my sister. So was hoping this boat had the same thing! Or if it didn’t roll out into a bed can somebody bring in a bed for her ?

  • What to all bring on a cruise?

    Best answer: - First time cruisers always over pack. Consider packing lighter. Take clothing items that mix-and-match so you don't wear the same outfit twice. DON'T pack beach towels. Use ship towels even when going on shore excursions. In the Caribbean you'll dry fast... one medium towel is usually enough for two... show more
    Best answer: - First time cruisers always over pack. Consider packing lighter. Take clothing items that mix-and-match so you don't wear the same outfit twice. DON'T pack beach towels. Use ship towels even when going on shore excursions. In the Caribbean you'll dry fast... one medium towel is usually enough for two people if you go snorkeling or whatever.
    - Use a credit card - don't carry a ton of cash. Use cash only for tipping cabbies, etc. At the end of the cruise, we usually tip wait staff and cabin stewards a little extra even when tips are included.
    - Sunscreen! Getting sunburned is no fun. The sun can be brutally hot. Pack a big floppy hat (that can be flattened in a suitcase) to shade your face and ears. Don't forget sunglasses too.
    - Save money, avoid specialty restaurants that cost extra. Eat in the main dining room, you'll get the same steaks, they're just smaller cuts. If you want more... order two meals. If the menu has a steak choice and a lobster choice and you are in the mood for surf & turf... order both meals. Use the buffets only for lunches. Get a 1st class breakfast in the main dining room. You can ask for a table for two OR be seated with other passengers. Sitting with other passengers is a good way to meet people and get good cruising tips from seasoned travelers.
    - When on the ship, lock your stuff in your cabin safe. You don't need your cell phone, car keys or wallet while in the middle of the ocean. The only thing you need is your ship card.
    - Drink packages are pricey, even for soda. Weigh out how much you expect to drink and determine if it's worth the price. My wife and I limited our alcoholic drinks to one mixed drink per evening, usually in a comedy club (Carnival). You can survive without soda for 5 days. Drink water, coffee and juices that are available 24/7 on board. Hint: You can make your own iced coffee easily too.
    - Wear a watch. Ships don't concern themselves too much with tracking time. Having a watch allows you to separate from your party and schedule a time when and where you can hook up again. I've forgotten this on two occasions and ended up buying a cheap $10 watch in the ship's store.
    - Find a way to know where you are on the ship. At elevators and stairs it's sometimes difficult to know if you are in the front or back of the ship. Carnival stairways have themes that you can figure out. Our last cruise we figured that collages meant the front of the ship, ocean scenes = middle and watercolors = aft. Alphabetically C forward,O middle, W aft.
    - If you want something, ask for it. If you don't like the heavy duvet cover on the bed, ask for a blanket. If you want mac & cheese in the dining room and it's not on the menu, just ask for it.
    - To quickly get from the front to the back of the ship, use the hallways on cabin decks. It's faster than weaving through crowds on the lido deck. Most cabin decks have hallways that run the length of the ship.
    - have tiny LED flashlights, especially if you are on inside cabins.
    - travel alarm clock, especially for inside cabins. Midnight looks exactly like noon in a cabin with no window.
