Look closely. On the upper right-hand corner, there should be a small "FTTF" logo in red. If not, contact your PVP and/or Carnival and have the documents changed to include the logo.

If you're a true chocaholic, you'll probably love it. I'm not. It's very rich, and one time per cruise is enough for me. I didn't have any on our last cruise.

Most airlines charge $25.00 (or more) per bag, so long as each bag does not weigh more than 50 lbs. For every bag over 50 lbs. there is an additional fee. We bring our own sodas because we are Diet...

Yep! Never had a problem. I pack 20 oz. disposable bottles, NOT cans. I put them in zip lock bags, sandwiched between layers of clothing. They're well padded. Never had one rupture or leak. And,...

On a previous cruise, we shared a table with three other couples. After dinner, when the waiter came to take our dessert orders, no one could decide on which dessert each of us wanted. No problem! He...

Here's what I do. Because we fly into Miami, I pack our sodas in our checked luggage. I buy the 20 oz. bottles, not cans, because the bottles are far less likely to rupture than cans. I put the...
