They're not free on Regent, but they are included in the price. They are not included in the price on Crystal and Oceania - or on most other cruise lines.

I agree - it would be better to give select people a different number to reach you if they needed to. It would be nice to be able to text back and forth with my family if there was an issue, but I...

Your bank can probably put that limit on your card for you......my bank arranged for me to have 2 cards - one for ATMs and one for debit and web banking.

So you're looking for what are called the "premium", not luxury lines.....that's pretty much Oceania and Azamara.

Quite good, IMO -- I got off the Symphony last month in Auckland. Much better than the too-soft mattress I had on my last Serenity cruise, which resulted many nights of poor sleep and rest.

You shouldn't be that horrified to find that out -- after all, it's much the same for entering the US. It's hardly a "technicality" that might keep a convicted felon from traveling to another...

That's not deceptive, that's what "included" means (i.e. included in the fare). What would be deceptive is if they said something was "free".

I watch a lot more BBC news when I'm traveling and it is definitely a different look at the world - IMO a better, more balanced look. Al Jazeera does a good job too.
