    Credit card info stolen

    This one tops them all. I live Florida and had my CC number stolen, the morons used it to buy train tickets from Chicargo to Oregon with reserved seats. When train stopped for a scheduled town, the police got and arrested them. They got 5 years in the slammer. Sometimes things work out for the good.
  2. I attached to the handle, a bicycle bell and horn. Plus it came with a device that sounds like a British police car.

    Staying on shore in Vietnam

    I am doing a Saigon to Hanoi to Danang 3 day land (fly) tour and skipping the sea day on the Ocean Princess. FYI, the ships visa are not valid for the air portion to Hanoi, as per info from Vietnam Embassy. You need to obtain a regular visa ($65.00 USD), from the embassy or use a visa service. The embassy accepts mail or fedex sent applications. I will tell the pursers desk not to issue me there visa. Anybody needing more info can e-mail me alanmal@aol.com

    Empty Promises

    RCCL promised me a $200.00 OBC ontop of my $300.00 OBC for switching from the Legend of the Sea Jan 28th 2010 sailing, which is being chartered, to the Azamara Quest sailing of Feb. 20, 2010. Now they are reneging on the $200.00 and droping the $300.00 to $200.00. So I cancelled them People watch out for there dirty tricks and empty promises

    Need some help

    Has anybody done the Buenos Aires to Iguazu post or pre cruise extension. The question is what do you do with the excess baggage that you bring with you for the cruise and the domestic airlines only allow 20 kilos (50 lbs) per person. Has anybody used a shipping company or do you just pay $12.00 per kilo excess baggage that the airlines down there want. Called princess executive office and they checked. They called me back and they said they have no plans in place to transfer luggage from Buenos Aires to Rio De Janeiro. Fedex and UPS want $1500.00 for 3 bags each at 50lbs. Can anybody help with this problem. TNX AL :D
