FAQ
A:  Yes, the group will be eating dinner together.  We will have a set dinner time, approx.
6 pm, and assigned tables in the dining room.  All tables will be near each other.
No need to pre-pick table mates, as you will
not have assigned seating*.  You are welcome to sit at any of the
tables assigned to our group.  
This is a great opportunity to dine with different ones each night and
get to know everyone in the group
.  If you want to dine with someone in particular just make prior
arrangements with them during the day.
* Sometimes the ship requires the 1st night only to have assigned seating.
Note:  Our trips always feature the group having dinner together; except the 2006  Alaska cruise, NCL
changed their policy to "FreeStyle" cruising and did not allow us to make group reservations for dining. Sorry
we were not able to dine together on that sailing.

port you will be
denied by the airline if you do not have a valid passport.

not include it and if you do not plan on returning to the ship for lunch. Airport days, since the

Q: Are you a travel
agent? Do you own
Cruisaholics Sea
Voyages?
A:  Yes and yes.  Christine was a travel agent for a few years and worked for a travel agency. but in 1996 we
decided to start our own travel agency, Cruisaholics Sea Voyages. We are all legal and licensed, we choose
not to sell to the general public, but just book the group cruises for the friends.  We enjoy traveling with
everyone and we hope you all do too.
Q: How many cruises
been have you guys
been on? What
started you cruising?
Eddie and Christine have been on 25 cruises, Joshua has been on 16 cruises, Jacob has been on 13 cruises,
Mariah has been on
2 cruises.

Eddie and Christine took their 1st cruise when Eddie's family paid for them to go for their honeymoon in 1987.
They didn't think they'd ever be able to go again, however in 1988 they went for their anniversary.  They then
decided that they wanted to try to go once a year and have a cruise for every year they've been married.  
Their plan didn't quite work as they have completed 25 cruises and been married 3
3 years.

The Score's have had groups as big as 90 persons and as small as just the two of them and everything in
between. The oldest person who has sailed with them was 96 years old (Melvin Sargent) and the youngest
cruiser was 9 months old (Aidan Walsh). Their sons Joshua & Jacob sailed when they were 1 1/2 years old.
With both of the boys Christine sailed 6 months pregnant, so I guess you could say they were born to cruise.

We are excited that we have had so many great experiences, good times and memories, especially all the
memories of traveling with all the family and friends. It's the only way to travel.  Some of the friends we see only
on vacations and it's great to meet up with you guys. All our travels have made us firm believers that you need
to take time out to spend with family and friends enjoying creation.  The more we go, the more we feel we are
experiencing a taste of the real life, and how wonderful paradise will be. We hope all of you can take a break
from this old system and join us on one of our adventures and see the wonders of creation.

different name,  What
should I do?
The ships are basicly non-smoking, however they do have some areas designated as smoking.  So, if you are
relaxing by the pool and smell smoke, and see ash trays on the tables, then you are on the smoking side.  
To
avoid smoke simply move to the other side of the ship.
Q: Are the ships
non-smoking?
A: Do not worry many people do NOT use their legal names.  We are good secret keepers, so you need not
worry.  As long as you let us know what name you go by then any papers that do NOT require your legal name
we will enter your A.K.A. name.  We send out a phone list to the group with everyone's name, so if you don't
want your legal name on there make sure you let us know.  You can simply mark it on the Booking Form.
 
When it asks for your legal name, please put in your legal name and then type A.K.A. and put in the name you
go by.

at a local drug store (Christine loves these), you can bring
ginger root capsules or amino acids (from a health store)
with you to take during the cruise (best to start a week before at home), the
Purser's Desk on board gives out FREE
seasick pills.  If you are really bad, for a fee, you can
get a shot from the ship doctor. The Caribbean Sea has very
smooth waters to sail in, you probably won't even feel the ship move.  Also most ships are huge and have stabilizers, they
ain't rockin.

talk to someone who has traveled with us and get their option or try it, you'll like it. For answers to questions on
how our all-inclusive packages see our page
VACATION PACKAGES 101.
We are
honeymooners  / not
"group" people, would
we have fun on one of
your vacations?
A: Well, our tours have tons of romance! Hold hands walking through a half lit cave, find a hidden waterfall in the
jungle, feel the awe of seeing Mayan ruins covered in morning mist. Jump in your mates arms as you walk through a herd
of iguanas. Take a romantic sunset stroll on deck with the ocean and islands are your backdrop. The romance is
unlimited! Remember, if you went alone on the cruise you would still be seated with others at dinner (strangers), and be on
a tour bus with others (strangers). Being with the group actually adds a comfort and joy that you won’t find with alone or
with strangers. In fact there’s more laughs and smiles with the group of friends. Don’t worry there is plenty of opportunities
to have alone time.  Go to a speciality restaurant for dinner a night or two on the vacation and it’ll just be the two of you for
dinner. Breakfast and lunch are not scheduled with the group (unless on tour) so go have a a breakfast or lunch for two.
Sit in the hot tub, the pool, at the show together, just the two of you. Your not required to do everything with the group.
However, you may just find yourselves looking for the group, because hanging out with the friends gets addicting
.

packages good for
families? Older ones?
A: Yes, in fact we always travel with our own children. All the tours are something everyone, young or old will
enjoy. Traveling can give a family great memories and experiences together that can bond a family closer
