I've gotten Renova in Mexico without a prescription for years. Last year I bought some Retin-A as well. Renova was about $15 (has been gradually rising) while the Retin-A was only about $6.

Million Dollar Quartet on the Getaway--best show I have ever seen on a cruise ship. We went three times on two different cruises. I'd go again.

The comedy shows on that ship were awful, though....

I've been on it twice. Unlike the previous poster, we didn't sign up for anything before the cruise and had no trouble getting into restaurants or events.

Some days we just walked up to the...
Short review: Nov. 26th on the Getawa
We did this exact same cruise last year, but in December, so obviously we like a lot about the ship. We repeated for this reason and because it worked out for timing for our family group from 3...

Regular prescription meds and over the counter are available--but not controlled substances like opiods. We have used them for years.

Just did in Cozumel; we went to the pharmacy in a grocery...

Plenty of snorkel tours are off of boats too. I've always just left my things on the boat.

For shore, we don't take anything really valuable. I have a waterproof camera, so that helps, as does...

We waited until we were on board to book the dinner show for that very reason; wanted to use our non-refundable OBC for that and our refundable for the daily service charge because the credit from...

I don't believe that paranoia over 'big brother' or having other issues about losing privacy by having a passport is the reason that most people don't have one.


I think it is usually one or more...

On our recent Getaway cruise, the OBC from our travel agent didn't show up until we boarded. There were gift cards in the room that added up to the correct amount.

We were on the Getaway Nov. 26th. We didn't reserve anything ahead of time but did reserve the Cirque Dreams show once on board as we were celebrating a birthday and that was the birthday girl's...

We were on this same cruise. There was definitely prime rib at O'Sheehan's at least once and maybe twice. We didn't go, but it was listed on the dailies.

We were on the Getaway on the Nov. 26-Dec. 3 cruise. Although we didn't go, they did have prime rib at least once, maybe twice, in O'Sheehan's. We didn't go, but at least it was advertised as such....

We just got off the Getaway, cruising the week after Thanksgiving--Nov. 26. I was amazed at how many kids were on board of all ages. I had imagined there would be very few, since it was after the...

Note before I start. We have passports and have had them for many years. Just got our 4th? set last year.

But, we once took seven grandchildren on a cruise, ages 5-11. We did not buy them...

They told us one app, one entree, two sides and one dessert on our Getaway cruise last week.

Have to agree. We probably set ourselves up to expect a superb experience by listening to people rave about Cagneys. Just off the Getaway.

My meal and one of my sister's were fine; not super,...

We usually tip $5 to $10 a person, depending on length and quality of the tour. On boat tours, the captain often states that the tip is for the crew.

We did Escape the Big Top last week. It was scheduled mostly during day hours, but at least one night, with no discernible pattern. We just walked up the last day and got in; didn't even reserve...

I've only gotten sea sick twice in over 50 years of cruising; one of those was on the ferry from Cozumel. Of course that depends on sea conditions.

I find it hard to believe that a trip to Chichen...

We just used Radical adventures last week. Loved the whole trip; great crew, food and the snorkeling was some of the best, especially for coral, that we've seen for a while. It did rain quite a...

I googled Placencia things to do and came up with several cultural type tours that sound interesting. The kicker is the supposed limit to 3 hours on shore--I don't know if anyone has tried going...

Very true; I drink rarely myself and never on a cruise. I just think the complaints from this age group tend to be about not being allowed to drink. I notice cruises often have special...

We bought our ferry tickets using the tv in our room the night before we ported in Harvest Caye. You could also buy them at Guest Services or one of the electronic wall portals around the ship.We...

We just returned Dec. 3rd. We took the ferry to the mainland; $25 pp roundtrip. We had three hours there and did go back at the time on our wristbands--did not try to stay longer.
