We did the Dawn a few years ago and were quite pleased. Above average entertainment, good food, and pleasant, efficient service. I am no a fan of all of the extra fee restaurants. Did not think that...

He did pass away, sadly. I was in his store in Grand Cayman 2 years ago and they were offering 50% off everything. I still couldn't afford anything, but I so loved looking. A true artist.

I think that some people decide to become attached to one cruise line. Whatever the reason, they will tell everyone that their cruise line is the best. Almost a made up elitist attitude. Then, they...
