The issuers used to bake the fee into the exchange rate until they got sued (Amex was particularly bad about this). Now the fee will clearly be identified next to the particular transaction. The fee...

I've had much more of a problem from using my credit card at Home Depot than I've ever had from using it in the Caribbean. And as I've said, if the card number gets stolen they zero out the charges...

If you drive to the port instead of flying there is still a limit on how much each piece can weigh although there's really isn't a limit on how many bags you bring. The per-piece weight limit for...

As you can see from the other responses, boarding early IS the rush. We've arrived at the ship as early as 10:30 or 11 but there is much less of a crowd in the registration if you wait until after...
