  1. The Ft Lauderdale Airport long term lot no longer exists.
  2. Suggest uber from the airport to the train station....train to Quebec City, then uber to hotel or ship. Uber seemed to work very well for us in Montreal and Quebec City.
  3. We did the taxi thing the first time we were in Cartagena...went right to the fort, paid the entrance fee and spent as much time as we wanted...it was great (and hot)! I think Dora does the fort, but you have to book the fort specifically, it is not on her regular tourist itinerary. Still, just walk thru the visitor center and find a driver that will take you where you want to go.
  4. Apples and oranges...be sure that the number of cruise days are the same. The CMV sailings that I see are 'segments' of world cruises and are not much less than other lines on a 'per day' basis. Also, as to percentage discount remember that, like automobiles, the sticker price can be outrageous so that the customer can be 'impressed' with the huge discount being given.
  5. Curiosity has a grip on me tonite....care to comment about your aversion to Uber/Lyft?
  6. FLL->Tri-Rail->MIA->Uber to Hotel This will work and is not as complicated as it may seem....but the better choice, imo, if you want to use public transit would be... FLL (or PBI)>Uber>Virgin Trains>Uber>Hotel. The train part of the trip is approx 30 minutes (from FLL) and has the advantage of avoiding rush hour traffic in the Miami area. In either case I suggest that you use Uber/Lyft for part or all of your trip so that you are familiar with it. It works well, we love it.
  7. Open the thread you want to follow...look in the upper right hand corner and click on 'follow'....then follow the prompts to do what you are trying to do.
  8. And yet she boarded the ship and sailed the entire (modified) itinerary. Later she decided to try to get her money back...not gonna happen.
  9. https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/news/2019/05/30/sneak-peek-meet-princess-cruises-internet-of.html?ana=yahoo&yptr=yahoo
  10. While this is true, the plans that I am familiar with have lifetime limits of $50,000. That is not a lot. GeoBlue is a great choice with no deductible and no preexisting penalties.
  11. As a suggestion, the latest 'goto' method of customer service is FB or Twitter. Those sites are live continually and often result in results in far less time than email. I have to continually remind myself of this fact when I have an issue that needs attention.
  12. While there are no guarantees there are a couple of facts.... 1. Either of your choices will give you a price adjustment if it originates with HAL. 2. A TA >may< give you a further discount or perks for booking with him/her. 3. A PCC is an employee of HAL....so you know which side of the fence they are on when it comes to the extras mentioned in #2. 4. Previous threads here on CC indicate that booking transfers must be completed within 60 days of the original booking. (I think I've got that right)
  13. Private messaging has never been available on Cruise Critic. Never.
  14. There is no credit given between lines under the Carnival umbrella. Many would like this, but as it is, there are often so many upper status passengers on a cruise that they have to have the cocktail meetings more than once. And the status-given laundry service is backed up for days.
  15. Ships dock within a few hundred feet of the shopping area. Disembark with a full battery (and wallet) and enjoy your day shopping. The business part of Aruba has never seemed very photogenic to me.
