  1. But OP didn't ask for some sort of definitive answer he asked, precisely, if anyone had experienced or seen boarding refused for violating the cabotage laws. Sometimes people just like to ask for others' opinions or personal experience. It doesn't mean they are necessarily going to act on them. The rest is just normal thread chatter, which hardly needs the message police.
  2. Thanks. I know I will find out very shortly when we board tomorrow, but this is exactly the kind of personal experience I was hoping someone would post.
  3. Well that explains it, they just didn't realize who you were.
  4. Yeah, I was just an actuary for over 20 years, so I wouldn't know anything about these things. In what sense are buses 'compartmentalized' compared to cars?
  5. "I'm sure I'll find this out in a few days when we board, but I am curious." So maybe suggesting calling, when I've already said I'd know for sure in just a few days was kind of besides the point. Which was to solicit experiences and opinions. Which it did. In most responses.
  6. I've always found it strange that it has become so inconceivable to drive your car with a baby not in a car seat, yet un-protected babies on buses and vans are no big deal. And then I think back on what passed for car seats 50 years ago - cheap little things that had nothing to do with safety - without there being some great slaughter of babies in accidents. I think the car seat industry has a very effective lobby.
  7. Bold strategy, getting snarky with someone who is trying to protect your financial security.
  8. I can also ask them when I board, on Saturday. But that wasn't the point of my post.
  9. That is our first US port, so you are likely correct.
  10. That makes sense, although I don't know what F2F means. Edit: never mind, Face to Face.
  11. I'm sure I'll find this out in a few days when we boardboard, but I am curious. We will be boarding Victory II in Montreal for a 12 day cruise up the St. Lawrence seaway, through Quebec City, over the top of Maine, and ending in Boston. Does anyone know how customs and re-entry work when you re-enter the US mid cruise?
  12. That is a little more understandable there, since medical science knows almost nothing about nutrition.
  13. In about a week we sail on Victory II's Montreal to Boston itinerary. Yesterday I got an email offering me a (paid) upgrade from my booked AA class cabin to one of the two owner's suites for a grand a person. I originally wanted the owner's suite but they were sold out when I booked. So now I have it, for less money than I would have had to pay if I got it originally. Needless to say, I'm pumped. This is the first such upgrade offer I've ever gotten in my limited cruise career. Has anyone sailed in the owner's suite on Victoria II? I'm curious if the comments I've read about tiny showers applies to the OS or does it have a bigger bathroom/shower. Thanks
  14. This is completely wrong. For example, Divina has Yacht Club, but the YC restaurant is aft while the rest of the YC is forward.
