Not to cruise

Worst advice was two.  1) to stay away from Carnival,   I finally tried it and it is fine for the price,  even good food.  2) Other bad advice was to go NCL,  tried it and did not like it, tried a different ship and it was good,  third time was back on first ship and bad cruise again. 

So my advice,  try everything and see what fits well for you.

Drink prices are compared to your local bar. In fact they are priced more like a fancy hotel bar big difference there let me tell you.

The worst advice I've ever received, and this was years ago. Was " Go on a cruise....How bad can it be......." Now I'm hooked....

This addiction to fresh sea air, open skies, snorkeling, Champagne and orange juice in the morning, great friends and beautiful sunsets.....I need rehab....

Sounds like somebody is going through withdrawals ??? Book quick before it gets worse :-)   sometimes knowing you will get a fix can tide you over.

Stay in an inside cabin since you are hardly ever in the room anyway.  We did follow that advice that when the kids were little only because we couldn't afford an outside cabin.  One time we were upgraded to an outside cabin and it made all the difference in the world to us to be able to look out on to the ocean.  I will never go back to an inside cabin.

Best advise, check you bill often. Worst advice, don't worry about tender tickets. The one time I did not go get them early it was a terrible tendering day. Got to shore with a 1/2 hour to see the island. Thankfully it was Nika hiva, 1/2 hr bout did it.
