  1. The lanyards are “cheap” “worth about 10 cents” “an insult” “I would never dream of using one” but lets give them to a poor “lower level” cruiser who would obviously adore them.
  2. I agree with this post. I have paid for shore excursions by gift card and then had to cancel on board and the method of refund was OBC.
  3. Clothes from travel day can be worn again on a cruise day, or if coming from a different season, can be worn on the travel day home. Better yet, wear them the next day to board. I will frequently wear a soft knit or T shirt for travel days and that becomes my sleepwear for the next few days. Shirts worn early in the week can also be changed out for sleepwear later in the week. All other clothes including elegant night wear can certainly be worn again, especially if only being worn for a couple hours at a time. Experienced travelers become more efficient at packing. It’s not always how much you bring but how efficient you are at saving space. Never found a need for more than one bag.
  4. An amateur response to a professional explaination.
  5. Definitely not the TA I am forced to use for a group cruise. Her cruise price is higher than online but she insists that is the price from CCL. I have asked her to recheck it two weeks later since online prices change and she refuses. Just emails me that “she is sure the price is the same” but if I find a better price let her know. Problem is I don’t know which codes are allowed in group bookings. Not all are. No OBC or price breaks and she is booking for a wedding with at least 15 cabins plus hotel and port transportation. I did the research and chose the cabin. Then she makes mistakes on the invoice. Never again with a TA.
  6. It seems to be a problem with the USPS when AARP says they have been mailed but you do not receive them. Won’t matter who you order them from if that is the situation unless they are sent from a different location. This winter I had a document mailed to me USPS with a tracking number. It took two weeks and the tracking indicated it was sitting in the St Paul distribution center for 5 days.
  7. Regarding seasickness measures: If you normally do not have a problem with motion, there is no need to take anything prior to the cruise. Maybe indulge in ginger snaps if you like cookies. 😉 I take Bonine along (less side effect than Dramamine) just in case. Often on the first night I will start to get that “motion” feeling and if I do, will take one immediately. Takes care of it. Just stay in tune to your body—even though drinking—and take immediately when needed. It also will not hurt if you take one prophylactically when you board but totally unnecessary to start earlier (if you don’t normally have the problem)
  8. In April, we did an off-road Jeep tour in St Kitts and an ATV tour in St Maarten. Both were great both on the roads and off. Saw very little damage and were all over the islands. Well worth doing any sightseeing tour. If you do a bus tour, you may have more narration about any damage you see.
  9. VIFP could be either early saver or not. There are other promotions within VIFP.
  10. Funny—we were in Miami when we just got in line about an hour early. I didn’t even notice if there was another line—except priority. Around noon so not late in the process.
  11. Did all that. Used a different computer. Same thing. Oh Well, sigh. Maybe this is why so many people post saying they tried searching with no luck.
  12. That used to be the case for me as well until recently. What the OP is saying is that does not pop up anymore when taping search. Instead, “search the community” screen comes up an it is not evident that there is a place to select specific forums.
  13. There is an early/late line but we have arrived as much as an hour early and not even been directed to that line. Just the regular line.
  14. Is AARP having shipping difficulties recently? Couple of people here with problems and I ordered a $500 card last Wed (this is Mon afternoon) and it hasn’t even been shipped yet. When I called, I was told they have 5 business days to ship so it should be shipped by Wed—arrive maybe Fri or Sat. I have previously usually ordered on Thurs and received on Wed the following week. I though the delay was from ordering late in the week but doesn’t seem to be the case. I also never get an email confirmation of shipping which the call center blamed on the warehouse. You can’t contact the warehouse.
  15. Search AARP Rewards for good. You sign up, accumulate points, purchase cards at 10% discount.
