Although it's been a few years now, we did go to Antigua on a cruise. I loved it, but then I enjoy history. We took an island tour that focused on some of the historic spots, particularly the old...

We enjoyed the Star last spring, L.A. to Vancouver. Tips? Make reservations early for the alternate restaurants. The steakhouse was excellent, as was Ginza (if you like Asian food). Alaska is amazing...

My first question is, when does your return flight leave Anchorage after the cruise? If it leaves within a day of the end of the cruise, you will not have time to get to Denali. Have you signed up...

Flightseeing is always expensive, no matter where you go. Between a high overhead for the tour operator, and no doubt very high insurance prices for his business, it's no wonder. If you really want...

My understanding is that POH will undergo a refit prior to becoming Norwegian Jade. This would preclude a transitional cruise, IMO.

MSC is an Italian cruise line, and as such, will have a more European atmosphere than RCL or Carnival. I don't believe it has the "party" feel that Costa does (no toga parties). I've heard some good...

Phensgirl is right - it's quite inexpensive. I buy mine at Walgreens, but any large pharmacy should have it. Bonine and Non-Drowsy Dramamine are two brand names of the generic Meclazine Hydrochloride.
