This week we discuss a cruise port that is not very frequented, but we think provides a great opportunity to combine a historical vacation with a cruise in the United States. We have a lot of news today with stories of new dining and alcohol packages from Norwegian and Carnival, plus possible hurricane Issac.
This week we answer listener questions related to children in the main dining room, drunks on cruise ships and traveling in Europe. Our cruise news features stories about themed cruises plus some policy changes regarding children on Norwegian and MSC.
Matt from the unofficial Royal Caribbean blog at www.royalcaribbeanblog.com joins us to tell us all about the cruise line including news from a recent earnings call regarding potential new ships and new deployments. Our cruise news features Carnival's new "Faster to the Fun" pass which gets you into your stateroom right away with priority embarkation and immediate luggage delivery. We also discuss the new Queen of the Mississippi and the possible effects of Hurricane Ernesto.
This week we discuss which ships are the best to sail if you don't want to spend anything extra on board. Which ships have the best included food, entertainment and amenities? Which ones represent the best value? While we disagree somewhat in our answers, you're sure to find the conversation interesting. Our cruise news features how Carnival plans to solve the problem of "chair hogs", a new CEO for Celebrity, and our thoughts on a lady who wore a bathrobe for her entire cruise.
