    Do flights to Barcelona ever go down?

    Prices usually go down when the plane goes down. But let me assure you that flying is safer than a car ride to your travel agent.

    Funniest Complaints Heard While Cruising

    As it happens right now and here on CC in the Harmony TA thread: "We have arrived in Madrid! Only problem, I can't figure out where the cruise port is located. "

    Update on Harmony Life Boat

    ...........or - the life boat is not damaged and just being withheld by the French authorities as they are still investigating the accident?

    Update on Harmony Life Boat

    As seen (or should I say not seen) last week in Palma the life boat was still missing. From the booking prices I guess that the transatlantic voyage will be close to full capacity and I wonder whether they replace the life boat until this reposition cruise from Barcelona to FLL? What is the capacity of the missing life boat?
  11. As a European Schengen Passport holder, coming back from the USA, I asked a German border police officer to handle all US citizen reciprocal and have them wait up to 2 hours until screened. He answered that "we are not that paranoid like INS and will handle all US citizen within 2 minutes". He also pointed out that in the computer netted age, all information is available for the officials for a speedy process. US airports are a pest, with wait times up to 2 hours. Last week the only ever exception was Chicago's O'Hare: wait time 5 minutes only. Big kudos to ORD. For other than US cruise ship pax in FLL or MIA ports: from 30minutes to 3 hours! Good luck with paranoia

    New cancellation policy

    A very generous 90 days new cancellation fee (-policy) for US. All over in Europe (Australia?) we are required a 10% down payment immediately at time of booking and the down payment is non-refundable when cancelling.

    Cruise with 300 Pinnacle

    Nice screenname- you seem to live up to the true definition of alter ego. Besides that- Royal treats suite guests and pins equally because both are vital parts of their business strategy. Suite guests pay like 10000$/suite and may show up a couple of times over their cruise lives. Pins probably have paid a solid six digit $-number to reach the status. Thats why RCCL serves both groups equally. If you do not like it- take a break or do some land based vacation until you are sure a cruise has less than 300 or so pins onboard...

    Cruise with 300 Pinnacle

    Looks like you are a (dining) chair hogger. I guess your flexibility will be seriously tested to visit other great elegant onboard restaurants. I admit though-you need to step out into the real world and mingle with the ordinary people....
  15. I have friends who were on this cruise and had NO Indian Visa at check-in in Dubai. They said there were forms issued by RCCL that had to be signed for those with NO Indian visa, requiring them to stay onboard when sailing into Indian ports- and that was it. So no Indian visa necessary when you stay onboard the ship?
