  1. I alternate between Chase Southwest and Citibank cards. I used Chase for my cruises, one deposit of $400 was credited today. There is no balance on it , so it shows up as a credit. My 2 cruises were TA and Med, not until October so I had only paid deposit. $6000 is a massive amount of credit to use, $400 is a months cellphone and directv!
  2. Received my $400 deposit for my October 30 TA from Barcelona to Tampa today. Waiting on my $198 deposit for October 20, Venice to Barcelona. Charged back to original credit card.
  3. Fortunately we are Diamond so we were 1st group off the ship, but when I did our check in on line before we left it included our air plans, so 2 two nights before the end of the cruise they delivered our boarding passes to the cabin and we set out our luggage the night before with the airline luggage tags attached. Next time we saw our luggage it was on the carousel at MCO. We flew SWA . Pretty impressive since our flight from SEATAC thru Minn/St.Paul was cancelled , ran to get a flight to LAX to MCO, got to LAX , all kind of problems with flight delays got home about 8 hours later and the luggage was there. Carnival lets people with flights off with the early folks, I' m pretty sure the all do that. Have a fantastic trip.
  4. We used it in August on the Carnival Legend, our flight out was at 1135am. It's such a great service.
  5. Yes , just put birth certificate , then edit when passport comes in. I did this for our "Girl's " cruise next month, I also made everyone's account cash and they will give their own credit cards when checking in at the port.
  6. If your doing an Alaskan cruise out of Seattle, the City and Port Authority do that for free. I believe this is the only port that does it. It was fantastic for our cruise a few weeks ago.
  7. We were on the Legend July 30 this year. We had perfect weather high 60s, low 70s and NO rain. The 1st day out of Seattle was our only sea day. The 2nd day out was cruising Tracy Arm Fjord (which was cold and damp out on the deck, but worth being there) The rest of our days were in ports. We spent time in the casino pretty late, saw comedians, no shows. The casino did close at 230pm on our last day headed into Victoria, B.C., which by the way is a gorgeous city, so many flowers, clean, easy to get around , beautiful houses, it was what I expected the pacific northwest to look like. We had a fabulous time but we are warm weather lay out on the deck people, but so glad our grandson picked this cruise as his graduation gift from his Grammy and Grandpa, thanks, Caleb!
  8. We've been home a week today from our Alaska cruise on the Legend. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and Suite on Aurora ave. One night total was $312.96 . Our flight from Orlando landed at 915AM. We got to the hotel around 11 and asked if the had an early check in and they did. No extra charge. The free breakfast was very nice, eggs pancakes, fruit, yogurt etc. Lots of construction on the roads in that area, but quiet at night. The is a Walgreens 2 blocks up the street. Walking distance to the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass museum and Pikes Market. We did them all. I asked about getting a taxi to the port and the hotel had a shuttle for $10 each. If your flying out of Seattle make sure you use the Port Valet for your luggage, it's free.
  9. Love your report. We ae leaving on the Legend this Tuesday. I was wondering if the Port Valet service in Seattle was available on your cruise, and did you use it. Thanks
  10. It has always been posted for us under the itemized charges on our booking invoice, along with any other OBC. Ours for our Alaska cruise next week is $150 OBC. $100 stockholders and $50 for they military rate at the time we booked.(2nd Page) I always FAX our request with my email attached, usually takes 1-2 days for reply. Enjoy your cruise and your stockholders benefit, we bought in 2001, for us a fabulous decision.
  11. We have used both the ride safer system as well as the fly safe system for air travel. I agree these systems are so simple to use, in fact, being the Grandparents to a 5 year old, and only having 1 car seat, we put the ride safer in Grandpa's truck in case he has to make an unscheduled pick up.
  12. There were 3 of us in G27. Although it's a Junior Suite, on any other ship it's just a regular balcony, no extra room. With that being said , we loved the location, very quiet, down one flight of stairs and you are by the glass elevators ,also the beauty salon and gym which has showers and extra bathroom facilities. We got the room at the last second and were upgraded from an ocean view.
  13. Thanks so much for your reply. I will check West Coast Departures.
  14. Going on the Legend in July. Has anyone used the Port Valet Service? We have a 1130 Flight out of SEATAC. Our grandson picked this cruise for his high school graduation present from his grandfather and me. We have an 1130 flight to Florida out of SEAPAC. This flight time worked best for us. Didn't want a later flight with a lot of waiting time in airports as our grandson has Asperger's and occasionally waiting can be a challenge for him.
