From Tish Harris: "We are back from our 9 night cruise on NCL Spirit. Overall I'm sad to say that we are not interested in another NCL cruise. It was good to try it, but we didn't have the great experiences that Princess and RCL gave us."
From Cathy Del Grosso: "I realize it's optional, but having the option there felt more like pressure to me to add more tip, especially given the constant hammering home to the cruisers at how great the staff is, how we should thank the staff, the staff, the staff, the staff. I don't mind thanking the staff and chatting with them and tipping them well. But hey, we have PAID for good service, how about thanking US for cruising? Literally, I heard 100 entreaties to praise the staff, and very few mentions of, thanks for crusing with us. It got a little grating."
From Doug Eads: "It was a mild fall blue-sky afternoon as Captain Halle Gundersen stood atop the control deck guiding Holland America's ms Prinsendam, an elegant explorer, down the Tagus River away from Lisbon, Portugal toward the vast Atlantic waters."
From D.L.: "I know several people who have gone on cruises who tell stories of passengers being mugged & killed in certain ports in the Caribbean. Is this something for us to worry about? We have heard this from several sources, so we have to believe it is not a rare incident. This is our first cruise and we are a bit concerned. How can we get more info on what areas to avoid? I hear many of the cruise lines are "hush, hush" about the incidents. Any input is appreciated."
