  1. Firstly, you guys look great together. I'm based in uk and cruise mainly Europe And Iceland. In your opinion best cabin for best views?

  2. That is so funny about the cow. I'm hoping to one day go on one of the Freedom class ships.  Very tempting to ask for that room but I love my ocean view but free icecream.  Oh that's something to think long and hard about. Awesome tip. My husband and I drink lots of soda. First time out we only got one soda package and they gave us that cool cup you can use on all the machines. We loved mixing the sodas up. But we didn't like sharing all the time and food and drink is the only thing we're opposite on.  So next time we both got the cups and were very happy. Paid itself off the first day for both of us.

  3. We are going on the Royal Caribbean Allure.  Your internet wifi tip – – can we use wifi in our rooms or do we have to pay for that service.  You make it look so easy from my ipad that it will connect and then disconnect etc.   I thought we had to pay for wifi service.  thanks you for some great tips!

  4. Nicely done 🙂 short and sweet. With 60 plus cruises under pour belts still can learn, FREE Ben and Jerry's for the week? Honest???  Great looking couple fun video.

    Happy cruising George in NY

  5. That looked like freedom of the seas, we are booked for it in mid august 2014 from port canaveral orlando eastern cruise. 1st time on a cruise and we are really thrilled to bits, we are flying from england to get onboard, its a long way to come but every one is saying its well worth it.
    One thing that confused me is my tour operator has asked the cruise liner caribbean cruises on our behalf how much alcohol can you bring onboard and the official reply we got back is 2 bottles per adult person of either wine or champagne each on embarkment, we have 3 adults and one child in our party in a big state room so that means we can bring 6 bottles onboard, also we have been told we can bring some drink from the island stop offs but i cant remember how much .
    Anyway great tips thank you

  6. Why do you have to write your emails offline and reconnect only long enough to send them? Is there a time limit or something of how long you can use the wifi?
