Re: Re: ft lauderdale hotel

Enjoy your trip - I know you will. Unless a cruise to the caribbean is incredibly cheap, I think we've done it enough times and see most of the islands - after awhile, they all look the same. We're...

Re: atlantis vs rsvp

Saratogaguy,

Re: Re: Re: Liquor being Confiscated

Jerry,

My point was that if your liquor is confiscated, don't be surprised or upset - they gave you fair warning beforehand (if you don't read the information and fine print, shame on you). If...

Re: Liquor being Confiscated

I believe that this is pretty much the policy of most lines anymore. On HAL, you used to be able to buy a bottle on board at a slightly higher price than the take home price but you could take it to...
