Yes, I personally wouldn't take the child to formal dining, but that's just me. Wasn't this the guy who was banned like 3 or 4 times from the boards? Oh well.

Update -- well, we just returned. I must say it was a great trip. The Aquafest group, as the rest of the guests, were most pleasant. Most of their events were private, so if I hadn't known, I...

phone cards for Eastern Caribbean

Which phone cards are best to use for Eastern Caribbean cruise? Should I seek one that says "International" or will any AT&T type card work from there? Do you recommend a specific one? Thanks.

Thanks Donna,
Our travel agent told us months ago that main dinner seating was totally booked, and there was nothing she could do. I'm sure hoping that they accomodate us!

What to wear to ice show

Going on Mariner this October. Has ice rink and ice shows. Is it necessary to bring long pants and long sleeve shirt? How cold is it at the ice-skating shows?
