My dad is a member of Marriott, and seems pretty satisfied with them. I think, but I'm not positive, he may also be a member of Hilton Honors, but I don't think he stays at their hotels often. More...

Thanks Dave and Sandy. I didn't think they would fluctuate that much either. If anything, I would expect rates to go up as it got closer to the date, and not down.

Sandy, that did also cross my...

Re-booking Car Rentals due to Lower Rates

Hi everyone.

I have a question to ask, and also some advice, if any of you have done something similar. I booked a car rental originally through an airline's site, as they have a relationship...

I didn't hear that first part of the story, Dave. Not sure who told the media it was a 16 year old. I say it appears to be suicide, because this particular article states that the passenger...

Yet another case of a passenger going overboard, although this one appears to be suicide, from the article. Here (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/fl-ship-passenger-overboard-20150323-story.html)...

Casey and Kathy, that may depend on what excursion you do. I just did the train up to the summit. When we got to the summit, we did what the conductor referred to as the "Summit Shuffle," where...

No problem. Happy I could help. In Skagway, definitely try to do the White Pass Railway. This was probably my favorite port when I went. We did Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria, BC. ...

Could be they're not on the site, yet. They may be negotiating with the vendors. Try again maybe 2-3 months before your sail date, and see if any show up.

Yes, you can get off in Victoria, but...

Like Dave said, I guess the bar staff determined that he had enough. This leads me to a point that most first time cruisers may not be aware of. Most cruise staff, I believe, does have the right to...

I know I'm not a first time cruiser, but have a friend who's going on a cruise with her husband, and it will be their first.

Here's the question, asked on her behalf. She doesn't have...

Ah, I guess that would make sense, to hand something out to use as a room key when you check in. This may make it more confusing, though for some guests, to have their SeaPass card and a room key. ...

I'm not familiar with O'Hare, but I would guess it's the domestic terminal, since your first flight is a domestic flight.

I agree with Lisa's advice, though. Pack all essentials in your carry on,...
