  1. I got my Hep A immunization before we cruised. I told my doctor where we were going and she looked up which immunizations were recommended by the CDC for those locations- easy peasy.
  2. Anytime we fly, we always have some type of snack food with us. Usually something like peanut butter covered pretzels, trail mix, and/or club crackers.
  3. Yes, we buy insurance for any vacation not on the US mainland. I not so concerned with recovering the cost of the vacation as I am the medical coverage, evacuation and...repatriation.
  4. @2wheelin Back when we got the price match, the non-Carnival exclusion was $75.00 so Carnival's price must have been almost $125.00. It looks like Carnival has a discount going on it right now for the $110.00 so the price hasn't changed. https://www.carnival.com/shore-excursions/belize/lamanai-mayan-ruins-and-river-boat-safari-with-lunch-509098
  5. @ChinaShrek I used this one - https://belizecruiseexcursions.com/excursion/lamanai-belize-excursion-mayan-ruins/
  6. We were able to get it with the Belize Lamanai Mayan Ruins excursion. Saved us almost $50/person.
  7. Not getting any messages but CC is very slow loading when I'm clicking on a new topic/thread.
  8. Wanting to go on a family cruise and having a "surprise" family cruise are two different things. Being told when and where you're going is different than sitting down and planning it together as a family.
  9. This is how I feel too. I wouldn't want someone else deciding when and how I was going to vacation especially if I had limited vacation time.
  10. I know. I've had a passport since my second cruise in 1997. Even if I haven't used it much, it's nice to have. Some day I might win the lottery and want to whisk off to Paris for a croissant or Italy for pizza, can't do that if I don't have passport. 😉
  11. When I booked our last cruise in 2017, after almost 20 years since I had last cruised, I was very surprised to learn you could still cruise without a passport. I had assumed that had all changed during the time (2009?) when passports became required for Mexico and Canada.
  12. Wow that's awful for the DIL to get denied boarding. But in this day and age where all the information is at your finger tips, I don't know why one of them didn't bother to read Carnival's web site or any web site about what identification is needed for cruising.🤔
  13. Since it has buttons it's a henley not a T-shirt so I say it's fine to wear. Per Wiki "A Henley shirt is a collarless pullover shirt, characterized by a placket below the round neckline, about 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 cm) long and usually having 2–5 buttons. It essentially resembles a collarless polo shirt...."
  14. I'm going to guess at why they don't want people wearing t-shirts may have to do with what is on the t-shirt. There may be "offensive" pictures or words/slogans on said shirts. Instead of just saying "no T-shirts with inappropriate slogans or writing", they chose to say no t-shirts all together.
