Deals and News
Check out Carnival's one-day sale, Windjammer's marked-down outings and the usual roundup of the best sails at the lowest prices.
This month, we'll take a look at Lindblad Expeditions, one of the most adventurous and learning-oriented of the small-ship lines.
Read on to learn about new European river options, kosher cruises, expeditions with a Cousteau, and more -- plus a warning to nudists heading to Nevis.
Options for kids (and the kids themselves) are more sophisticated than ever, and if you look beyond the scope of the homogenous mainstream lines, you'll find a handful of cruise companies catering to the tastes of today's well-traveled children (and their parents).

From SCS: "We had a great time on Carnval's Elation on February 20. We had an interesting itinerary (Belize, Cozumel and Progreso) and good food and service. We're experienced cruisers and think Carnival has an undeservedly poor reputation (but we're not chronic complainers). On the same week last year we went on RCCL Vision of the Seas from LA; the food was much better on Elation."
From brynny: "We are planning to take a Panama Canal cruise within the next year. We prefer a more formal experience with formal served dinners in the evening. Any suggestions regarding good experiences and good values?"
From Jane Mullin: "We recently returned from a cruise on the Carnival Pride to the Mexican Riviera. We chose this line because we had with us our 22 year old son, and we wanted to be sure we were on a ship with enough young people. We didn't expect to see, though, so many people of our generation. We were delighted. We have sailed with Carnival in the past and thought this would be our last one with them, since we no longer need a "party ship". Much to our surprise, the ship itself was gorgeous, the crew outstanding, from cabin stewardess to the Cruise Director, Greg. Our son had a blast and we, too, were truly thrilled that Carnival has begun to address the 'older' crowd."
From Seansoma: "I have been attempting to get a $100 refund credited back to my mother for a cruise she and three friends took on Jan uary 31, 2005. This credit is a result on a rewards travel certificates from Royal Carribean Cruise Lines. Cruise.com was paid in full for the cruise in November 2004 and have yet to follow through with the credit. I have had constant communication with their agents, which seems to be a new individual each call. I have had no results in getting the refund as of today's date. I have called RCL, and their records show credit applied to Cruise.com in December 2004. Cruise.com has given me the impression that if they do not return my calls, or answer by questions I will go away, and they will continue to hold on to the $100 credit that was refunded back to them by RCL -- that should have been refunded back to my mother, the consumer."
From M Hynes: "My wife and I have never been on a cruise before. Next year we plan to take our first. The only requirement is that the cruise include a visit to St Petetsburg with our other desired ports of call Copenhagen and possibly Stockholm. I have found one cruise from Celebrity which features Amsterdam, Oslo, Stockholm, Tallinn, Helsinki and St Petersburg, but it lasts for 12 days, a little longer than we can be away for when you factor in the transatlantic flights. We would welcome suggestions, experiences, tips etc from contributors who have gone on such cruises or otherwise have knowledge of them."
