Carnival orders four new ships, HAL prepares to christen Noordam, MSC Cruises hosts a beauty pageant, RiverBarge returns to the Big Easy and SeaDream reconfigures upcoming South American itineraries.
This summer cruise lines are set to offer a record numbers of trips in the region, cashing in on the continuing perception that cruises offer great value considering the weakness of the dollar against the euro. No need to pay European pricing for hotels and restaurants when you can sleep and eat on board.
Get in on low prices by booking now for itineraries covering European rivers, the Caribbean Sea, the Panama Canal and just about anywhere a boat can float.
Now is the time to be thinking about a summertime vacation in Alaska. Summer will be here before you know it and soon enough you'll be dying to get out of the sweltering heat and head north.

From colemank: "I have never been on a cruise before and I will be leaving for my first cruise in February. I really don't know what to expect. I will be traveling with Royal Caribbean to Cozumel and Costa Maya. What should I expect when we go into port? Is it necessary to plan an excursion? I have read a lot about excursions, but is it safe to find one when I am in Cozumel or should I go through RC?"
From wsinesmull: "We are two seniors cruising to Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia and St. Maarten over Christmas. We are not into water sports or gambling. What attractions are worth our while to visit? Are the taxis reliable? Would you take a bus? The money is also confusing. Should we use travelers checks, regular charge card or cash? Our time on each island is limited to 7 or 8 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. Help and thanks!"
From Pappageorgio: "Well I just got back yesterday from the cruise, and we did not stay in Cozumel the full brochure time."
From yuhaviat: "NCL recently informed us that our 8-day Mexican Riviera itinerary had been changed, dropping our farthest destinations. This was disappointing, as Acapulco had been one of the primary attractions. When I asked why, the rep said there was a problem with a major bearing, which prevented the ship from traveling at full speed. He assured me that there was no danger (though of course there is at some level), informed me that we did not have the option to cancel, and offered a $100 per cabin credit. Is this sort of thing common?"
From marshabrown: "I have done two Caribbean cruises for under $1,500 with airfare from Toronto. All the research that I have done on the Mediterranean is coming in between $3,000 and $4,000. Is this what I should expect to pay?"
