Hi again - forgot to add - contact your Credit Card company again BEFORE you leave and tell
them what islands you will be visiting - this way, when you use your cc on the islands for shopping, etc. RED flags won't go up and freeze your account. It's a very good protectiion that the cc watch your buying patterns
- we were in Mexico on our first cruise when I bought a REALLY nice tanzanite bracelet. A few days later, when talking to our kids at home (called from Jamaica) my DD said" Mom, you have to call American Express about your cc !!! - which I did - they saw my purchase in Mexico
and were just checking to be sure I was the user of the card. Great protection !!
