Honestly, I've never had clothes wrinkled so badly that they needed pressing; I do mostly bring clothing made of fabfri s that travel well and leave at home any thing that is high maintenance--not...
Go Miami pass
My first post on this didn't come out right. We have a long day in Miami post-cruise. Trying to figure out what to do.

Has anyone used the Go Miami pass? It is $75pp and many attractions/tours...
HO-HO bus work out and the Go Miami pass
Has anyone bought the Go Miami pass? We have a long day after our cruise and are looking for something to do; plane leaves at 8:30.

The pass costs about $75 pp and seems to include a lot of...

Now that I see it full length, I don't care for it either. Too shiny and too drapy; In theory this should help hide figure problems, but in this case it just makes her look bigger. I do like her...

The wrong person went home. There were at least two worse dancers. I did not like the cut of the bodice on Erin's dress--made her look so bony--but the skirt and color were lovely. I couldn't see...

Thanks everyone. We're still trying to come up with something for that day after the cruise that isn't too stressful or something we have already done (ie Everglades trip).

We would not be going to 'rubber neck', that is,because of curiousity about the damage; we would be going to see the Keys and the scenery/places to visit they have to offer. We don't know if we even...
Drive into the Keys
Has anyone recently driven down to the Florida Keys from Miami after the hurricane? We have a very late flight after our cruise and thought we would rent a car and drive down as far into the Keys as...

I use Insure My Trip too. My priorities are very (high) good evacuation and medical payments--I look for the highest I can with a reasonable cost; usually not the cheapest or the most expensive. We...

On another stop in Costa Rica we picked up a tour on the dock that took us to a river where we took a boat tour; saw a lot of crocodiles and other wildlife and nice scenery. They also drove to some...

We did a great zipline excursion which we picked up right off the ship. I think it was $99 per person and included the drive to the zipline, zipping and lunch.

We have zipped several times and...

We've been right by the stairs/elevator and have never had a noise problem. Now we often book rooms near these because then there isn't so much looooong narrow corridor walking.

Thank you for reporting back. So you didn't test out what would happen if you over-stayed your 3 hour limit? Sorry the weather was so bad.

Did you see anyone on the mainland offering tours while...

Some places or people won't want to take old-looking currency; they prefer new looking bills. But not sure that will be a problem in the islands listed.

We have had someone really look over a...

We've cruised to all of those ports, some multiple times. We always used dollars. As said, it might be possible that you would get change in local currency, but not usually.

I thought Carrie-Ann's dress, at least the bodice, was so stiff looking, almost like armor. Erin's dress, kind of a yawn to me, like a black hole. Except for the bare shoulders, didn't really stand...

We always leave the daily gratuities on. Unless the steward is really awful--has never happened--we tip an extra $20 to $40 the last day; more for a longer cruise.

I don't see how someone could...

Roatan has some places that you can snorkel from shore. It is supposed to be very good. I have not snorkeled there but II have not done this, but any guide there would be able to tell you where and...

We've been to both of those places on cruises and did not get the yellow fever shot. I would only get the shot if going to a country that required it. We have had extensive travel shots/medicines...

Holey ragged jeans are not a new trend; I've seen it off and on for many years. One advantage of being older is that you realize most trends come around again and again. For instance, leggings,...

Really? I can find lots of them even in our very small 'city'--but then I am not looking in Juniors; I am assuming the OP is rather young, just going by the way she states things.

For lunch, fine. For dinner, they might or might not let you in. Why not just wear a similar pair of jeans without holes. Nice dark wash skinny jeans can look fabulous with a cute top.

We've only eaten in a specialty restaurant once, on Holland America. It was supposed to be comped, but TA did not come through. Our steaks were very good (kind of like a regular steak house here in...

Because we live on a lake all of our grandkids could swim quite well at 3. But....unless an adult who could swim was right in the water with them, they always wore swim vests. And even then one or...

I don't like and don't understand the double elimination. Did the network suddenly shorten their schedule? Kidding, but really prefer one elimination, and not on the first week.
