You need it in Mexico when going on excursions. We were warned at just about every Mexican port we got off at to bring it but I thought we really didn't need it and didn't bring it. Almost couldn't...

Exactly!! Even just walking around shopping can be a risky pursuit in some areas. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of caution with tours there. Awhile back, we had a very bad accident on a...

Our independent insurance didn't cover a similar circumstance either (Summit w/mechanical issues, 1/2 the cruise cancelled). They said as long as the cruise is still going to happen, you do not get...

Thanks, Hank, that is really helpful. I also found out from the horse's mouth that fares are $2.60 per person. I was confused because I had seen $2.30 and $2.85 per person. Wow - that was nice of...

I'm still wondering about the shared shuttle van for $5pp. Anyone know where to get it?

Yes, that is absolutely true. Port fees vary greatly and depend solely on the day you booked the cruise. Also, if your bookings are in a Group, the port fees are based on when that Group was...

We were originally booked on this itinerary. We booked it a long time ago and saw a huge price drop ($1,100) about 8 months ago. Shortly thereafter, we decided to change the date due to the heat in...

Little Sister - I bought a great fold-up personal umbrella at Dick's Sporting Goods the other day for only $6.99. I intend on taking it with us to every beach on our next cruise. It's small enough...

Thank you for that information. Already added for 2019 so that's great that we're "locked in" to the current tip rate. Thanks!

Same thing happened for our Jewel cruise. Had Cat. JS #1100 on deposit, noticed the GSs were $200 less, so moved up to save more money. Didn't make sense to me, but I wasn't going to argue with...

That's another idea, thanks. (y) And thanks "mom" for the Alilaguna schedule.
Waiting for Azamara to announce that we can use OBC for shore excursions!
I know, I can hear you saying it, "You're gonna have a long wait." :( Even so, I am hoping they will get their act together and join almost all the other major cruises lines and let us use our OBC...
