The Case for Tipping The Staff Aboard a Cruise Ship

Why should I tip people who are only doing their job?  It’s a fair question.  I bring it up because I’ve always wondered why so many people are lined up at the Purser’s Office the day before the ship docks. The Case for Tipping The Staff Aboard a Cruise Ship The first reason is so obvious, it goes beyond a bullet point.  The restaurant and housekeeping staff sign on for several months.  They are working long hours. …

DAY 4: Sunrise Heads Back to New York

  Bermuda was certainly the charm, weather-wise. We wake today to gray skies but by 10:30 a.m., the pool deck is humming. Even the swimming pool is filled with children happily splashing and, no doubt, more than a few are soaring down the twisting labyrinth of blue and yellow waterslides that snake over the deck. Many of these kids, no doubt, just had breakfast with a film star! This morning the lower level of The Radiance Restaurant…

How do you do that? What are We Talking About? Romance is…

DAY 3: Land Ho!: Carnival Sunrise Arrives in Bermuda

  The song says “Bermuda is another world” and the world we sail into shortly after dawn is a bright, warm and sunny one with sapphire blue waters glinting back at us and pastel-colored homes dotting the landscape. Like most ships, Carnival Sunrise is sailing into King’s Wharf (Dockyard), the port that replaced the shallow-watered capitol of Hamilton  once megaships made their debut more than a decade ago.  While smaller vessels may still dock at the busy…

DAY 2 Carnival Sunrise: A “Fun Day” At Sea

  As a chronically early riser, I find a quiet–eerily silent–Sunrise at about 6:00 a.m. as I make my way to deck 9 and its coffee stations.  New York’s gray skies seem to have followed us but in the distance a single ray of sunshine peeps beneath the clouds and pierces the ocean’s surface.  Yes!  There is hope that the swimsuit I packed might actually be used. Slowly, Sunrise begins to come to life and I enter…
