Dave, did you mean IAH? I believe that's the airport code for Houston Intercontiental Airport, and not IAW. I've only been to that airport once on a layover (twice, if you count going back the next...

My first few cruises were with Royal Caribbean, but my latest one to Alaska was on Princess, because that itinerary worked for me. Royal Caribbean to Alaska leaves on a weekday out of Seattle, but I...

I usually like to wear dress slacks (no khakis), shirt, tie and sport coat. I attached a photo of what I wore on my last cruise, which was 3 years ago to Alaska on Princess. As you can see at the...

Crystal Cruises - CPAP

Hi everyone.

I know each line has their own policy on this, but has anyone ever cruised, or know the policy, on Crystal Cruises regarding CPAP machines? The reason I ask, my dad uses one, and my...

Personally, I think that's cutting it too close. I'm not one to rush for a flight. If Majesty of the Seas docks in Miami, you're looking at a 45 minute drive to Fort Lauderdale Airport. Needing to...

I haven't been on Liberty, but have been on her sister ship, the Freedom. Was an okay cruise, not my best on Royal Caribbean. I know it's not the crew's fault, but there was lots of motion because...

I'd stay closer to town, rather than Sea-Tac. Even though the Sea-Tac area may be cheaper, then you have to see about getting into town, then to the port. Light rail goes to the downtown area from...

Jim

Regarding Australian currency, you may want to check with your credit card company, although maybe a moot point, as I don't know if Australia accepts US cards. I say this, because with the...

I would guess there's some safety considerations involved, also. I've never been on Norwegian, so I can't say I'm familiar with their ships. I do love watching fireworks, though, regardless of...

Thanks, Dave. Wow, that would be an expensive fine. $200 per passenger, times 3,000 passengers? Like you said, hopefully they weren't fined, since they made an effort to comply.

Most cruise ships now have stabilizers, so they can try to make it smooth, but they can only control so much.

As far as itineraries, I believe the Inside Passage to Alaska is pretty smooth, from...
