Not quick

I have had these refunds take as long as a year. The refund goes to your credit card so you need to check your bills. Apparently it depends somewhat on what company is doing the refund as well as...

Smile Lots of trips together

My adult daughter (50's) and I (70's) take a trip together every year, mostly cruises but we've done land trips too. I suggest a Caribbean trip to start, which is what we did. But if it goes well,...

Park N Fly

I have used Park N Fly at Port Everglades many times. They do NOT take your keys, you park your own car and lock it. They pick you up and load your luggage, drive to your ship and they unload your...

This is why I don't take my best stuff with me. The "real" items of both intrinsic and sentimental value stay at home or in the bank safe. There is enough good looking costume jewelry that I don't...

Even in Florida

I live in Florida and can drive to any of the ports. Even so, Tampa is the only port I drive to the same day as cruise -- it is less than 90 minutes. If I leave from Ft. Lauderdale, Miami or Port...

If there are ships in port, most shops will be open. I've even been in some ports (like Key West) where shops were open on Christmas.

All those referrals are fine. But, here is one answer: Park N Fly. Reserve online at PNF.com.

Beach towels

Don't pack beach towels - they take up too much space and are hard to dry to repack.
Cruise lines will give you a regular size beach towel -- bigger than bath towel -- to use on your day trips. ...

Don't ignore Rotterdam. I really like this city -- some nice museums and restaurants. Their transit system is easy to use also. Had the best French fries ever in Rotterdam.

Part of this trip

I guess this won't be much help: I took this train from St. Moritz but not all the way south.
It was a few years ago and I do remember it. The scenery is marvelous and the train very nice. I was...

Smile another one!

We have a giant statue of a sailor kissing a nurse in Sarasota FL. It is right near the small port off the Gulf of Mexico. Any chance you've mixed up your countries?

I've seen this many times. Once you go into your cruise details, even if you do not change anything, the system knows you've looked. So it wants a while to update, if there is anything to update or...
