Wow. Sounds like Princess should recruit this person for their IT team. Given that level of incompetence he/she would fit right in. ;p

I can't imagine wanting to travel internationally and not simply getting and carrying a passport. To me it's a no-brainer. Always carry a passport and there will never be an issue.

I always book on my own and then track pricing, sales, etc. If a good deal comes up that is better than what I have booked I just call Princess and ask to change to the new offer. Shortly before...

Try the Ginger Chews I mentioned above. They are actually "hot" to many people due to the amount of ginger. I love them.

I'm horribly susceptible to motion sickness. I get the patch (TransdermScop) from my doctor. It's prescription in the US or over-the-counter in Canada. I've been through weather where the outer decks...

We have been to Alaska 3 times and never seen the Northern Lights. As seeing the lights is something of a bucket list for me we have booked a cruise specifically for that purpose. If you are serious...

My credit card doesn't care if we travel elsewhere. There is no mechanism in place to let them know about travel. However, within maybe 30 seconds or so of using the card I get a notice on my phone...

Crowne Plaza or DoubleTree. Stayed at CP twice but will try DoubleTree next time. Crowne Plaza was OK but not fabulous. Lots of folks like the DoubleTree. Both have a shuttle. DT has a free shuttle....

Not a NY airport but we had the same experience in FLL. People sitting on the floor and the planters for hours on end waiting to be able to check in so they could get to seating. Freaking insane.

We don't fly until 6:30 (ugh) so are looking for something to do after the cruise but before the flight. Both the Water Taxi and the Carrie B seem interesting. The $25 Carrie B trip seems to be...

Yep, and now they are killing the birds on an island that is a bird sanctuary. Not good planning.

Yep. We snagged the Hoppa On Hoppa Off right at the pier when we disembarked in Hilo. Easy and cheap. We visited the falls, etc. and then got off and wandered in the gardens for a while and caught...

I got the database error this morning. I tried maybe 15 times to refresh and reload but it persisted. I gave up and did something else for half an hour. When I tried again I was able to hit the page.

I wanted to wrap a short youtube video into a reply where someone asked about a cabin feature and was surprised to find the button missing. I normally see a red button with a yellow "arrow" in it on...

I would just Google for "restaurants on beach in St. Maarten" or a variation of that search string.

Excellent! Thanks so much. This will be only our 9th cruise and our first to the Caribbean so we are pretty much clueless.

We are interested in taking the ferry and then visiting the National Park. My wife is "collecting" as many national parks as possible. Can anybody give me info on getting into the park once the ferry...
