  1. Agreed. We will do this again when our daughter comes with us in April on our next cruise and will be on a pullman. When we first saw that room on Empress I thought to myself Im gonna wake up and have to pee or something and either stub my toe or run into the cabinets trying to get out of bed with them together....lol Was SO much more convenient this way.
  2. Ive made that mistake before but it was the top of my feet that got roasted....guess I neglected to put sunscreen on them and we were on a boat/stingray excursion most of the day. That was a bad idea.....any socks, shoes, sandals or just the sheets were painful for a couple days. Caribbean sun is nothing to mess with especially for a fair skinned guy like me!
  3. A few years back we had quite a few elevator rushers on our ship. We all know them....the ones who try to rush into the elevator before anyone can get out. We had a huge guy (largely built and very tall) we seemed to end up in the elevator with quite often and was seated with his family at our MDR table....he was hilarious to talk to and you'd always see him ducking when walking around because his head was not far from the ceilings in some areas. Anyway, he would stand in the elevator inches behind the door and when we reached a floor and the door opened people rushing in would be met with this towering nearly 7 feet tall/300 pound guy blocking the entire entrance. Some people bounced off him not looking or just stopped super fast and then looked up in shock.....I still get a laugh out of that. He kinda reminded me of Herman Munster without the bolts....lol
  4. I will also give a thumbs up to the tag holders with the threaded steel cable. I have a habit of stuffing an extra luggage tag inside the suitcase just in case. Also the same with my boarding pass when we fly, print an extra copy to put in the suitcase.
  5. I noticed on Empress last week you can get tea or lemonade in any of the food venues but if you didn't have a drink package they wanted to charge for pink lemonade. Not sure what makes that so special. if you have a drink package ask for the fresh squeezed OJ for breakfast. Its really good stuff! I usually went for the bloody mary though cause y'know....vacation.
  6. We do enjoy larger cabins from time to time but generally just get interiors to save money and really aren't in the cabin much. We just got back from a 5 night on Empress and the cabin was smaller than some other interiors we have had. We asked the room guy/steward to split the beds and it created alot more useable space and an aisle to get out of bed without trying to squeeze by cabinets. He gave us a funny look and asked "are you two ok?" Lol! Yea, we are fine, happily married. Anybody else do this or are we strange? BTW, this is interior cabin 3109 on Empress of the Seas. We tried a guaranteed cabin (GTY) this time and it worked out just fine. We will do that again in the future.
  7. We were just on Empress earlier this week. I am kinda techy and check out things like this....lol. The TV does have an HDMI port but I didn't try it.
  8. Yea, I smoke....wife doesn't either. However like you said I did enjoy the smoke free interior areas like the casino on Empress with her because she's happier. I don't smoke in our home or in our cars so if I feel the need to smoke I just go outside, same on cruises....just my habit I guess
  9. Found this interesting.....we were coming back into Miami Thursday on Empress and saw Vision of the Seas there. Just came in from transatlantic. That ship seems to be a world traveller, all over the place so I thought it was an unusual sight to be there....I know I've never seen it before.
  10. We just got back from a 5 night on Empress. The casino on it is completely non smoking which was nice.
  11. Our daughter is currently 7 and we have taken her on several cruises. We got her a passport just in case.
  12. Have been on Adventure several times, yes it has stabilizers. Stabilizers don't do much when you are way out in open water and are sailing through swells head on. The ship will find its own rhythm of pitching and moving. Usually barely noticeable. I'm someone who rough seas and the ship moving doesn't bother at all. You will notice after gaining your sea legs especially on longer cruises that once you return to dry land you'll find yourself retaining them for a few days involuntarily.
  13. While I admit I do have a bad habit of enjoying a cigar or cigarette occasionally while on vacation after a few drinks I do not enjoy large crowds of people smoking and the thick odor like in the casinos some evenings.....its sometimes pretty unbearable. I generally will go to outside deck where the lifeboats are outside in the breeze if I want to indulge. I don't smoke in my home or vehicles so I extend the same courtesy to other folks on the ship and try to not annoy others. We are trying out Empress for the first time in about a week and a half and was pleased to learn their casino is non smoking.
  14. Was looking at ptztv key west webcam today. We have a cruise on Empress Oct 5th and was just wanting to check it out on the webcam. Noticed that all 3 ships, Celebrity Equinox, Majesty, and Empress are not there and are listed as cancelled. Wonder why that is? Weather doesn't look too bad, kinda windy.
