    Info on how to Renew a Passport fast: How to Renew Your Passport Quickly Standard processing time for a passport renewal is six weeks from the day you apply, though it can vary depending on how busy the passport office is. However, if you need to get it more quickly there are a few ways to do so: Pay an additional $60 expedite fee when you submit your application. The State Department also recommends that you pay for overnight shipping both to and from the passport agency. This will cut the processing time down to about 3 weeks. Make an appointment at the nearest passport agency if you’re leaving in 14 days (or 4 weeks if you need a visa). Use a private passport expediting company like RushMyPassport for faster, more personalized service and no need to make an appointment or wait in line. For more information about the pros and cons of these options, see How to Order a Passport at the Last Minute RushMyPassport makes ordering a passport easy, fast and convenient.

    First Timers needing help.

    Here are two cruises that start in New York and end in Miami.

    First Timers needing help.

    It is possible if the ship visits a distance port such as Aruba as part of the itinerary. See the Regal Princess itinerary for November 1, 2018 as attached.
  4. Found the following two cruises on Holland American Line: July 30 - Aug 16, 2019 on the Rotterdam Boston to Rotterdam Aug 22 - Sep 9, 2019 on the Zuiderdam Copenhagen to New York This would give you 7 days in Europe (6 nights)

    St. Petersburg Excursions

    There are several private tours such as SPB and Alla that are great and can save you some bucks. We used SPB last year and they were exceptional. They provided the passport documents for the time in St Petersburg, picked us up at the ship, provided lunch one day, and got us back on time. The tours hit all the hot spots you will want to see if this is your first time in St Petersburg. You can also book the other itinerary ports with them. The web site is: /https://www.spb-tours.com/

    Stockholder Benefits

    No double OBC for 200 shares. For a cruise that you can book in segments, you only get OBC for each segment when you book each segment separately. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    This may be a 2009 thread but I wish I could buy more of this stock at 2009 prices. Thank you Carnival for this great benefit and for a well run company.

    Post Cruise Dizziness

    A little "Hair of the Dog" solution may be in order: Take another cruise immediately.
  10. Thanks for taking time away from 'all the poor people in Texas' to post twice on the eclipse.
  11. Here in Western Oregon, the weather today would be perfect for the eclipse. Bright and sunny without a cloud in the sky. How is the weather where you hope to watch the eclipse?
  12. Heard the space station crew will have 3 flybys of the eclipse. Hope they get some good photos especially of the shadow on the ground. Would love to see the shadow from that height to see if it is circular, oblong, distorted or what. The weather is a worry here. Our home is on the centerline in Western Oregon but some mornings are overcast and it doesn't always burn off before 10:00 am. We're hoping for a bright sunny morning on the 21st. And good weather for all of you wherever you are watching the eclipse.
  13. Was wondering about a flight trying to keep up the eclipse but then heard the shadow moves about 1600 miles per hour crossing the USA in about an hour and a half so that is out. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. The closest cruise ship to the eclipse area I could find is the MSC Divina that departs Miami on August 19th heading to St Maarten for an August 22nd arrival. On the 21st, the day of the Eclipse, it will be at Sea and could be in very close if not in the Total Eclipse path. There doesn't appear to be a Roll Call for this cruise so no help there. You are right it would be strange not to have cruise ship in the path of the Eclipse.
