I would really like to see a "DIY" themed cruise, maybe sponsored by Lowes or Home Depot. There could be "how-to" lectures & demonstrations on simple home projects and/or repairs for the...

Name & address on luggage tags?

I wasn't being sarcastic. I happen to like Early Saver. While I do agree there could be fewer restrictions, I also wish that the other cruise lines had something similar. I realize that not everyone...

Many years ago, I once flew on Piedmont to Florida (Jacksonville I think). The runway was a bit rough and needed to be repaved. Needless to say, the landing was kind of rough. I jokingly said to a...

While it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on the cruise fares after you've booked, there's no guarantee that you'll see a price drop ( but it would be nice). We booked our cruise with Carnival (for next...

Nassau is not "stinky". The Straw Market is a main tourist attraction there. If you see something you like, don't be afraid to haggle. We've been to Nassau three times, and the last time we went, we...
