  • What would be a good cruise next summer for my graduation?

    Best answer: Alaskan cruises are great, but can be a bit of a hassle, depending on where you are from. If you are on the west coast, it isn't too bad, but if you are on the east coast, you often end up having to change planes 3 times, and it takes a really long time to get there. You also have to do a lot of pre-planning... show more
    Best answer: Alaskan cruises are great, but can be a bit of a hassle, depending on where you are from. If you are on the west coast, it isn't too bad, but if you are on the east coast, you often end up having to change planes 3 times, and it takes a really long time to get there. You also have to do a lot of pre-planning if you plan to do land tours separate from the ship tours. On the other hand, there is nothing like being 4 hours into Denali; that's some wilderness for you. We hiked Matanuska glacier, played with sled dog puppies at the Iditarod museum, and then took the glass-topped train fro Anchorage to Seward to catch the ship.

    The thing with cruises to keep in mind is that most people on them aren't looking for strenuous hikes and wilderness. They want to see something cool, and hang out on the beach. We like snorkeling, so we tend to do Caribbean cruises. We also did a MEditerannean cruise, and I can't stress how amazing that was. In the US, something is old if it's 200 years old. That's remodeling in the Mediterranean. Walking on the street where Cleopatra walked is walking on some serious history.

    Given the choice between RCL and NCL, I would definitely go with RCL. Granted, you have no frame of reference, but I've been on both and RCL was just better all around. Personally, we like Celebrity; peter food, fewer kids. My kids preferred Celebrity when they were young, as they are foodies too. We have also done Carnival, and it wasn't awful, bu ti'd not do it again.

    I wouldn't do a cruise out of Asia. I'm to going to go into why as I would come across as xenophobic, but people I know who have done them say it was pretty bad.

  • On the norwegian gem, most rooms say they accomodate 4, but there is only 1 bed. Is there a pullout or a murphy?

    We are planning on room #10000, which is a penthouse suite. If there are other rooms with a pull-out or a murphy, i'd like to hear about those too. thx in advance :)

  • Can I drink alcohol at age 17 in Spain, Italy and France?

    Best answer: You most likely can't get served, but if your parents or an adult buy you a drink, no one is going to lose their mind, as they did in the US. On the ship, same thing. As long as you aren't acting like an idiot, adults can buy you drinks. My kids had the occasional beer and wine on numerous cruises before... show more
    Best answer: You most likely can't get served, but if your parents or an adult buy you a drink, no one is going to lose their mind, as they did in the US. On the ship, same thing. As long as you aren't acting like an idiot, adults can buy you drinks. My kids had the occasional beer and wine on numerous cruises before they were 18. On one cruise, they even served my 17 year old.

    That said, of some busybody were to point it out to the captain, you might get in trouble, but nothing like the trouble people on here often imply. The basic idea is that you can't be stupid about it..

  • I’m first waitlisted for a cruise.. What are the chances?

    Best answer: You have a 50/50 chance at this point. The thing is that at this late a date, most people will not want to cancel as they will lose their entire fare. As for getting it for under $1500 - I doubt it. Interior rooms for this cruise starts at $684. You'll be paying an additional single's supplement and... show more

    Best answer: Minimum wage. But, a big BUT, they get huge tips. Each stateroom that they service will traditionally give their specific housekeepers large tips at the end of the cruise.

    In the old days (ca 1960s) we gave each one their tip in cash enclosed in an envelop provided by the ship. The amount of the tip was based on the cost of the stateroom and the length of the cruise. But I remember putting roughly $100 in each of two envelops for the two stewards that serviced my stateroom. And I put some money in two envelops for each of the two waiters who waited on my table in the dining room. That was for a one week cruise as I recall.

    Just guessing, but I'm guessing those two stewards for my stateroom serviced about a dozen rooms each day. That's about $1200 each in tips for a week's cruise. Certainly better than the minimum wage they were also getting. And as it was in cash, I'm betting it was not reported as taxable income especially since many of them came from the Philippines.

    But in recent cruises on several lines, the ships have automated the tipping procedures. Now they simply take a percentage of the cabin costs for tips and add it to the stateroom bill. Which we pay by credit card. No more cash and no more envelops. It's all easier to do, but now I'm guessing it's reported for tax purposes. Sorry I can't remember what the tips were for my recent cruises. But I do remember they were comparable to the envelop days, plus a bit more for inflation.

  • Do divers check under cruise ships before leaving for security and safety ?

    I am watching a show on Amazon Prime called The Poseidon adventure and before the cruise ship left a diver was checking under the boat. Is this standard procedure for all cruise ships before they depart?
