    Online check in with Debit Card

    We just cruised May 4th through 11th and did have a hold on our debit card. RCI put a hold for $1000 on our debit card, our actual charges were $700. Even after the $700 charge cleared the hold for $1000 was still on our account. I was told the hold normally drops off after 10 days. I had to call my bank and RCI customer service to get it released and straightened out. Needless to say I will never use a debit card for Sea Pass purchases again!

    Serenade vs Adventure Spring 2010

    I can identify with scrutinizing every decision about your cruise. I did the same thing. I think you can't go wrong with either ship. We did the Adventure 4 port route on May 4th. It is a beautiful ship and the islands were great too! Don't think you'll be disappointed with Serenade or Adventure.
  3. I had the seafood skewer last Wednesday so maybe there is hope! Others have mentioned it not being cooked properly but mine was perfect. I bought the cookbook so I will be attempting my favorites at home. I know it won't be the same but I can't afford to cruise every week!

    Godfrey Tours

    We just used Godfrey on 5-3. He was on time. The tour was very informative and he was very knowledgeable. We did run into traffic problems but you can't blame him for that. I thought Godfrey tours was a great value for the $25 per person.

    Cheap Transportation on St. Thomas

    We just returned from our cruise Sunday. We experienced a really bad traffic jam. A 10 minute ride back to the pier took 1 1/2 hours! Be sure you allow extra time so you're not late getting to the ship.

    Does everyone gain weight on a cruise?

    :) I just returned Sunday from Adventure of the Seas. I had weigh-in yesterday and was thrilled to have lost .2 pounds. I ate dessert every night and many other things that I wouldn't normally eat. I really enjoyed my food! I think the key was that I took the steps everywhere and did lots of extra walking. I have gotten right back on my Weight Watchers Core program since I returned. FYI I had lost 30 pounds since January.

    Hubby Doesn't Match-Does It Matter?

    To me matching outfits doesn't mean two people both wearing black. I guess that is a male/female thing. At least a few of you understood!

    What's the most.....

    I have currently lost 26 1/2, hope to be at 30 lbs by my cruise in 16 days! I started in January. Good luck! It's all a mind set.

    Hubby Doesn't Match-Does It Matter?

    I hadn't come back to see additional responses until day! My my, I created a little controversy. My husband is fully capable of dressing himself and I do not tell him what to wear (for the most part, lol). My concern was the 25th anniversary photos. For people that thought I was trying to have matching outfits-I have to laugh at that assumption. Obviously on cruises some people don't care how they look and some do. Am I anal about things that don't matter to some people? Guilty! Do I care if you wear shorts to the dining room? No! I appreciate the responses from the people that understood why I was asking! Happy cruising to all!!
  13. Buffetfan you are my hero! I am sorry your family didn't understand your dedication to the cause. lol We are cruising on AOS on May 4th. I have been frantically trying to find a current menu. I am on Weight Watchers and really want to plan out what I will be eating. I hope you are going to post the other days too! PLEASE!!!

    Gifts and Gear??

    Txcruiser I was also waiting for a response. My Mom & her husband are cruising with us and I was wondering if the robes would fit them. Both are plus size. Hopefully someone will answer!

    Hubby Doesn't Match-Does It Matter?

    Thanks to responders! DH's suit does not have pinstripes that would stand out in a photo. I think we will be fine. I can spend that new suit money on something else more fun! The black and white photo is a good idea too.
