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...

Easy to do

Although I don't often cruise on Carnival, all the cruise lines are about the same on this.
Just sign in with different credit cards. You should be able to do this when you arrange your pre-check...

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?

Not a real problem

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...

I would suggest you find a travel agent who is very experienced with cruising. They should be able to tell you what ships and what cabins will best suit your needs. Some Ships, like Royal...

a balcony vote

My first time on Alaskan cruise I had an oceanview cabin. I felt I missed a lot by not getting out on a balcony to see around me, not just straight out. I cannot do an inside even for a short...

We Get it

Yes, we get it. But some people seem to believe these things only happen to others. No one says it is a requirement to arrive in port city a day or two early. But it is certainly something to...

Replacement joints

I have a replacement hip. London's Heathrow is the only place I've had trouble. Very rude security people who acted like I had a bomb in my hip. Very aggressive about patting me down and asking...

sorta picky

I don't eat certain things, like most vegetables. So I try to carefully read the menu descriptions of plates. Then I can avoid dishes that contain those things. For example, most of the "Spanish...

my mistake

Yes, you are correct. I should have said pick "port Everglades" not Ft. Lauderdale airport.
Too many ports in Florida and I've used them all.

Keep my keys

At Park N Fly (PNF.com) you park your own car. Keep your keys. The van driver picks you up at your car, loads your luggage and drives you to your ship. They unload your luggage for you. I tip...

That is correct

The passport does not even need an address in it. You could just mark it out but no one looks at it.

Another choice

I have used Park N Fly (www.pnf.com) many times and have always been satisfied. If you make reservation online, be sure to pick "Fort Lauderdale cruise port" not airport. Same physical location but...

My choice

It is probably a toss up. But my preference would be Celebrity. I just did 10 nights from Venice to Rome on Celebrity Constellation. The S class ships are bigger and have more options and that's...

There were six ships in Venice on our first port day. When you add in the regular day trippers, it was really packed. Fortunately a couple of the ships were the smaller ones.
The second day wasn't...

Red face mistake in the message
