All American ships add 15% to bar bills and add gratuities to your onboard account unless you opt out. It might be easier to pay the standard gratuity so that you don't have to worry about extras. Your normal holiday day wear is perfectly acceptable onboard and ashore and a lounge suit for the gentleman and cocktal dress or long skirt and sparkly top for the lady will serve for any formal nights. Some gentlemen do wear dinner suits, but it is not essential. You will get a daily bulletin delivered to your cabin each evening explaining what is happening the next day. I'm sure if you ask for this in a large print format they should be able to help. The crew are there to make your hoiday the best they can, so talk to them and ask for anything you need with a smile and you'll have the best holiday ever.

By Trevor Smith

Trevor Smith's blog

So 2019 to 2020 cruises will be well on sale by this time next week and a question quite often asked is what is the benefit to booking so early?We are all different and normally will be looking to get from our cruise memory and experiences something different to the next person.If you want a particular cruise, cabin, dining time, maybe it’s a group celebrating an occasion then these are good reasons to book early.Others want the best price possible and will wait for a late deal, this is...
