When we applied for our passports, we were told to allow 6 weeks. I think we got them in about 4 weeks. Just to be safe, Sun, I would still allow 6 weeks.

Based on the two itineraries, I would choose the 7 day on the Pride. First, because a 7 day cruise is better than six, and second because Ocho Rios is way down at the bottom of my list of ports I'd...

While you're on the ship and the ship is moving, there will be enough of a breeze to help reduce the effects of heat and humidity. While in port, that will be different. Take your perfume, and apply...

Did the taxi flat rate change? I thought it was $26.00. Oh well, either way, it's still cheaper (and faster) than the shuttle bus.

Would an e cigarette be a possibility? They don't use tobacco, so there wouldn't be any objectionable smell to worry about. And, the e liquid comes in different levels of nicotine.

Thanks Dave. So I'm guessing that, based on what you've told me, if you have a tablet and a portable router, you probably still won't have internet accessibility in many areas while traveling. Kind...

Ahh, but given a choice, I would think most non-smokers would rather smell the aroma of a barbecue than tobacco smoke. And unless some is trying to take a nap between 12:00 - 2:30, the noise...

It would be really nice if all ship's cabins/staterooms had more than one outlet. I'm guessing they're limited so that a ship's electrical system doesn't get overloaded. But, there ought to be a way...

I wish that "theme" cruises would have price drops. However, because of the popularity (and demand) of certain theme cruises, prices typically don't fluctuate.
