SInce Princess booked our Delta flights prior to 7/31, I guess I should print that article & include it in my binder of cruise documents- just in case the gate agents get confused!

Hey Marc.......we just used one of those on our recent MED cruise.......worked great for us and all of our traveling companions. It's not EXACT, but if you stay 3 lbs. under it's pretty good.
