That level of pricing is rare enough to mention. The deal is good for all November dates on the Disney Magic exclu...

USA Today reports that Disney is the latest cruise line to ban smoking on its stateroom balconies, joining Celebrity, Princess, Oceania, and Crystal. I'm all for the ban.

Every cruise ship's lifeboat drill contains a captain's warning not to ...
