Welcome to Cruise-Chat,

Weather for your cruise can often be damp and foggy. I wish you bright sunshine!

Twins in their terrible two's. Wow! One of our forum members has written some information on the Camp Carnival program. You can view it here.

D_Loudon - I just did the cruise up to New Brunswick on the Carnival Triumph in June. The ship is looking good and in great shape with a fantastic crew! The steak in the main dining room and the lobster (on lobster night) are both as good as it gets!!
If the buffet area is crowded - just take the gang up the stairs (located right behind the dessert bar) - there are always plenty of great, uncrowded seats up there (there is a self serve beverage area up there too!).

There is plenty to do for the younger set on board and they will be delighted to help you with your twins!! You are traveling at a great time and it is a good time to head North! Both St. John and Halifax are great towns with some great tours available! Relax and ENJOY!! You are on the most strees free vacation ever - and let the experts of cruise hospitality take care of you and yours - they are called "The Crew!" - you'll be thinking of your next cruise before you return home!!

Welcom Aboard to Cruise-Chat! Congratulations on your newly acquired "habit" - It's very addicting! I had my first cruise when I was 9 -- I'm retired now but the memories last a lifetime (so does the addiction!)

Bon Voyage,

BillyBuzzy

P.SW. Don't forget to give the "Chocolate Melting Cake" a go for dessert in the Main Dining Room!

Hi Dloudon, welcome to Cruise-Chat. Congratulations on your up-coming cruise! The best thing about cruising is you can do as much or as little as you wish. So, if you want to relax, you can do so! I hope you have perfect weather, but if not, have no fear, there will still be plenty to do, if you so desire. I don't know if anyone with twins actually get to relax, but the opportunity will be there Best wishes for a fantastic cruise!

Dwayne- yes, that perk is going to definitely get used (I will most like get Lisa to go and get her "entry" for me to use also :-) And yes it will be the black jack tournament and not the slots.. I have watched that multiple times and just don't see how it can be anything but luck. If they did a video poker slot tourney, I'd go for that...
You are most likely right about the slot tournament. They put the machines in another mode of operation for it. In regular play mode the slots do involve some skill and knowledge of pay ratios though while deciding on a machine to play. That's all I'll say about that.

They'll have a list at the casino cage of VIP's entitled to complimentary entries in the tournaments. They will ask for your S&S, and give you a ticket to give to the casino host.

You not only need a vacation, you DESERVE a vacation! There are loads of remedies for sea sickness, but 99% of the time you won't need it. The newer ships are large, have stabilizers, and handle the seas very well. The natural remedies are ginger and green apples. You can get ginger tablets or pills in your health food stores, they always have green apples on board. Bonine, Dramamine, Patches, and wrist bands are also remedies. If you don't get car sick or sick on roller coasters, I'll doubt you'll need anything.

My husband and I have been on the New England Cruise 3 times. Love it - Boston, Portland, Halifax - Peggy's cove. Usually take a taxi to Peggy's Cove. We do the bus ride/boat ride in Portland - a tour purchased in town. St. John is neat too - shared taxi with another couple.
Can't tell you much about with youngsters. We did take our adult children and grandchilden on a cruise and they took advantage of kids club to get a break from little ones. It is always fall when we do New England. Should probably have some sun there now. ??? Enjoy!

The New England cruise and ports sound amazing.

We need to stay within the posted topics though to some degree, and not stray too much. This way the forum is easier to search for information for all readers.

I've lightened up a little about thread drift. Please don't go overboard with it.
