  1. Wow we really are close neighbors! I'm just off 4th and Union and I'm a Hazen raisin! Howdy neighbor!
  2. I don't think the cruise line moving away from accomodating smokers is intolerance. Smokers are just a small fraction of their customers, and they'd rather please the highest percentage of their customers who don't want to smell cigarette smoke on their cruise. I'm not being judgy, I smoked for 17 years, and quitting was one of the hardest things I've done. The problem with cigarette smoke is that it doesn't just stay where you smoke it. It travels around, and you also carry it on you right after you smoke. Into the elevators and the halls. Ncl is going to limit unhappy passengers anywhere it can.. And smoking is just one aspect of that.
  3. Try a repositiong cruise down to California for the Mexico cruise season in the fall. Quick train ride to Vancouver, and 4+ days of cruise bliss. Also the repo cruises are super cheap and you can spend time down in LA area after before flying home.
  4. I use insuremytrip.com to shop for a comprehensive plan that covers what I need in an insurance policy. All the major providers are represented, and you can compare quotes and coverages. Some people only want medical, some want trip protection. I want all of the above when I travel. And most policies won't cover pre-existing conditions unless you buy the policy within X days of the initial trip payment.
  5. If your husband is an international airline captain I have no idea why you're paying full price for anything on a cruise. You should be well aware of how to use interline travel to book your cruises at a very steep discount.
  6. I personally was looking at Virgin for the Cuba experience. The adults only, no buffet was a huge draw, but pricing was so high, I paused. I can honestly say that if Virgin is unable to go to Cuba, then I will look elsewhere.
