All of this talk has got me measuring my suit cases...I've come to the following conclusions:
1. If I can't make everything fit into my carry ons I'm forgoing the formal attire & eating at the buffet or attending the dr on formal evenings without my suit in hopes of not being barred.
2. My consideration of what cruises to book will be favoring those leaving from Florida since we live there & so far aren't limited but the bus company.
3. If we do fly an airline that has those restrictions in place I'll wear my suit jacket, sweat shirt, etc to reduce my luggage to carry on size if at all possible.
I just heard on the news last evening that Carnival profits were down due to the fuel price increases. I wonder if their recent change in attire ruling will help them out in this situation since it'll be much cheaper & easier to fly to their ships.
