The web-link at bottom provided by the Miami Hearld.

On the way home from your cruise, those duty free bottles my not be so cheap, 1-pound over the weight restriction of (50-lbs) on Delta, will cost $80, worse yet $150 for an over-sized bag one way!
Look up your airlines charges and fee's, 1st bag, 2nd bag, over-weight bags and over-size bags.

Note: Your carry-on better meet the size limit, the airline can remove it from carry-on and check it in as a second and or extra bag.

In today's economy, I choose to fly as little as possible.

I like flying Delta. Our weight allowance is three 70lb bags for each of us plus a 40lb carryon each. It sure pays to stay loyal to a single airline so that you can maintain elite status.

I hope Air Canada is on the forgiving side. My one suitcase will be considerably heavier and my carry on packed full. Thankfully, most of what I'll be buying isn't heavy.

Yep, its true....Just flew home 2 days ago on United and any bag over the 50 pounds limit, a charge of $125.....Needless to say we weighed them and we transfered some (dirty clothes) into the one that could afford another pound, so both were 49.6 pounds....just not worth $125..
