This contest is now closed. We’ll announce the winner as soon as we hear back from the lucky reader. There’s nothing like a hot cup of fresh java in the morning. But it can be a challenge to find a quality cup on a cruise (trust us), as onboard options are limited and you can’t [...]
The contest is now over. Sharon B., who correctly guessed “Norwegian Epic,” has been selected as the winner. Cruisers sometimes hide out on their cabin’s balconies for some “me time.” Cruise Critic member Coleecove, aka photographer Victor P Jackson, caught this Solo Sally aboard this ship in July 2010 at nearly high noon.

The Web is littered with photos of towel monkeys on toilets or body-bandaged men in [...]
Like an aging starlet unrecognizable after her latest bout with rhinoplasty, the 2,670-passenger Grand Princess is forever altered. That’s because the 13-year-old Princess Cruises vessel, which is in the midst of a massive refurb (details here), recently had its distinctive “shopping cart” handle — aka Skywalkers disco — sliced off its stern.
