I usually gain a couple of pounds, but, I know I could do worse. We take the stairs as often as possible and I'm somewhat careful at meals. I look at the dinner menu and if I want to enjoy the entree...

Depends on what time of day we get home. We took the red eye home from the last cruise and I couldn't believe how productive I was that day! I slept fairly well on the plane and was restless when we...

We did the Golden to Alaska this past May and loved it! Our balcony cabin had plenty of room.

One of my favorite Caribbean beach memories is of a rainy day. I can't remember which island it was, but, we tendered, then took a little local boat to the beach. I was with my late husband, his...

We went to Alaska on the Golden in a cabin with a balcony this past May and after we got back from that trip we booked the Sapphire to Alaska for Sept 2012. In my research I found the temps between...

Last month I went on cruise number 13. It was the first time I had brought a shelf with suction cups for the shower. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! That tiny shower didn't seem nearly so bad.

I'm another one who had a balcony cabin right under the Lido deck. Bad idea and I won't do it again. It was convenient getting to meals and activities, but, the chair scraping started early in the...

We booked our May 21 cruise on the Golden last Fall. We've had a LONG, cold, snowy Winter and many times the forecast for our ports in Alaska has been better than ours. With the storm predicted for...
