  1. Just got an email today from Bank of America. The mobile banking app on your cellphone along with the location finder can be used to verify credit cards when traveling. 

    "Activate Verify Your Visa® Card Is With You in your Mobile Banking app.1

    We’ll match the location of your phone with where your Visa card is used to help us approve transactions when you travel away from home."

    Haven't set it up yet but it looks a lot easier than typing in your itinerary every time you travel!


  2. We have sailed multiple ships and classes but prefer the Radiance and Voyager classes the most. Have not sailed above Freedom class so cannot speak to the mega-ships, but the two classes I mentioned seem to be the right combination of size and "fun" for us. We particularly enjoy the outdoor WJ seating and R-Bar/Centrum seating on Radiance class and the Promenade on Voyager. You cannot do wrong on any ship/class, you just have to try them all!!

    I love brilliance, still one of my favorite ships. Leaving out of Tampa is a nice scenic route. You get to see Right in the center of downtown, then see St Pete. The skyway is a awesome thing to see and to finish it off Edmonton key. It’s a neat sail for a couple hours. 

    Completely agree on the Brilliance and the sailaway, especially under the Sunshine Skyway. However, sailing in December, it will be dark, the Skyway lights are fun but Edgmont Key is probably impossible to see at that time of night.

    Such an awesome picture of Brilliance going under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.  I can not take photo credit for this, found it on Google Images.

    Spectacular GPoobs!! Where did you find this? Must have been taken from the north fishing pier, the casement for the original Skyway bridge, destroyed in the early 80's (late 70's?) when hit by a ship entering Tampa Bay. Many lives lost...so sad.


  5. Been on a number of RCL cruises…have seen a number of shows (best was the Beatles cover band on Serenade)…while most were entertaining, have NEVER seen a SINGLE one I would have been willing to pay for, let alone $79 !! These entertainers are Broadway, Nashville and Hollywood hopefuls who are trying to pad their CV (God love'm for their enthusiasm!) while waiting for their "big break." For those of a certain age, think "Summer Stock." On land, think flippin' burgers and cocktail waitresses, the day job to pay the rent. Not to knock their dreams, but not willing to pay to see their journey.


  6. My wife and I just completed a 9 night cruise on Navigator to Labadee and the ABC islands (the cruise was in CBA order, though! Lol!). It was our first time on Voyager class, after being on Vision, Radiance and Freedom classes and it was the perfect size for us, not too big and plenty of venues to enjoy or just do nothing.

    The ship and crew were fantastic! Everyone seemed to enjoy their job and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our vacation. The food ranged from very good to excellent in the MDR (we did MTD most nights) and the service was top notch.

    Curacao and Aruba are beautiful and fun to visit, Bonaire seemed geared more to beaches and snorkeling, which is fine if you’re into that but I have to be careful with the sun so I had to pass on that.

    Loved the ship. Loved the crew. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great getaway!

    GO EAGLES!!


  7. My wife and I are sailing out of Miami for the first time this week (we usually sail out of Tampa and use the valet parking). We will be driving down from Tampa Bay and plan to park at the port. She is mobility-challenged, so my plan was to drop her and the bags off at the terminal, park the car and return to her. Is this feasible? She cannot walk comfortably for any great distance, so we would need a place to meet up. She will have her walker, with a seat, in case benches are not available. Any comments, suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!


  8. Posted this yesterday on the Celebrity/Azamara Discussion but got no feedback, so I am also posting it here.

    Have booked a cruise on Serenade Feb. 2019 but I am looking at a Celebrity Silhouette cruise, roughly the same timeframe and almost identical itinerary (roughly comparable costs). Have never cruised Celebrity before and was thinking of trying something different for a change. Thanks in advance for any thoughts, comments, comparisons, etc., they will be appreciated!

    I was on Liberty this summer, stopped in Roatan, which is where I was getting my answer from earlier and I remember the same as above, they kept stressing, stay on ship time, not island time. So Western Caribbean must be different than Eastern sea board...

    I believe it depends on each ship's captain to make the decision to stay on departure port time or local time. I have had different experiences on different ships/cruises. Just pay attention to the Cruise Compass the night before. Also, there is generally a sign as you disembark, which time is being followed
