Deals and News
Along with our usual rundown of the best offers from online discounters, we've also found nifty deals on Mediterranean yacht cruises, Mother's Day outings with Windjammer, a two-for-one on a small Alaskan vessel and more.
We report on some recent mishaps aboard two ships, Regis and Kelly, Rosie's cruises for gay and lesbian families, Princess' new boat, butler service and fine dining.
In the last couple of years, cruise business from U.S. ports serving as starting points for cruises has grown dramatically. Last count, there were more than 20 homeports on the U.S. mainland -- 7 on the East Coast.
New rules proposed by the U.S. departments of State and Homeland Security may soon do away with an age old loophole, meaning even passengers taking weekend jaunts to the Bahamas will need a passport -- no ifs, ands, or buts.

From Cindy4444: "We are in the beginning stages of planning a cruise w/ our son who is in an electric wheelchair. I was wondering if anybody could give us advise on cruising w/ a handicapped person. How do the excursions work; on board travel; getting child into pool; etc. Any helpful hints would be wonderful."
From evw: "Has anyone taken the 600 passenger MV Discovery? We are thinking of taking the cruise to Antartica, South Pacific, and Galapagos. We want to learn more about the ship's amenities and client satisfaction. Any advice, comments will be welcome."
From jeannelst: "I will be taking a seven day cruise on Royal Carib's Brillance of the Seas this May. I will arrive in Rome several days before departure. The cruise departs from the port listed as Rome. I have found out that the port is a very long distance from the city. I have been told by the hotel that it would take several hours to get to the coast via public transportation, and a taxi would be very expensive. Any suggestions?"
From Sheila Kirkman: "I am writing from the UK and I am a single female traveller. I have just returned from a East Caribbean Cruise on P & O Oceana, flying out to Barbados. then flying back to England. I have had to pay a huge dreaded single supplement, and someone suggested for next time I try an American ship, and seemed to think your supplements for single people would not be as high. The Celebrity, Constellation was docked behind us in St Thomas and I must say I would quite like to cruise on this ship. Can any one advise me if they know of any low single supplements? Thanks very much."
From wbod: "I am going to be in Turkey and am interested in taking a Blue Cruise. Does anyone have any tips/suggestions on the most scenic routes to take and other info on best points of departure or companies that were good to deal with? Thanks for the help."
