Feb 15th 2013 1:31PM You said it! The EXACT same thing happened to us at Thrifty in Cancun, Mexico a year ago. Same short line and long wait. We were tired from the flying, and got the car anyway, figuring I would argue later. No dice. We had to pay it. I tried to get it adjusted and my credit card company (Cap One) was no help at all. Total bait and switch. Somewhere in the process, I was told that IF they had known I had a 20K limit or more on the card, the insurance would have been waived. Probably BS. We used to use Thrifty maybe 5 times a year. Now, not at all.
Mar 22nd 2012 8:20PM That's nice. For the cruise ships. I can't see that it would ever filter down to the customers in the form of better rates.
May 8th 2011 5:59PM I have often used by Garmin on United. Right in front to the flight attendant. Works fine. The top attained speed on the gps is 630 mph -- on the way to ORD from SFO.
Apr 29th 2011 2:41PM Douche is right. We got off of a ship (Celebrity Infinity in San Diego) this month after a cruise. It was about 3 hours waiting -- standing, actually -- to get off AFTER the ship was fully docked. "Just some US Customs requirements". Baloney. Cruising is commonly much worse than flying. When the ship docks for the last time, you are suddenly dirt to them. Yes, it CAN go smoothly and relatively quickly, but often doesn't.
Feb 27th 2011 7:03PM IMO, Mazatlan is the least interesting of the ports down that way anyhow. Cabo is neater by far. I'd consider it lucky to get the port change. I honestly can't think of anything that interesting in Mazatlan -- a nice day to just stay on board and have the ship to yourself. Mexico is a wonderful country with great people. I'm sorry to see it getting such a bad rap. Just avoid border towns, I guess, is the answer for now.
Dec 18th 2010 7:22PM Accused, NO. Convicted, definitely yes.
Aug 16th 2010 4:54PM Your choice of Merriman's is a great one. I have to quarrel with you on the Sea House. We have been going there for about 25 years, and last summer we finally said "no more".. It's been steadily slipping for about the past 5 years. Cold food, overpriced drinks, and poor service. We've been going there since it was the Sea House of the Maui Moon. A real disappointment, since it's on one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands plus a spectacular spot for a sunset. So, after 25 years and probably 50 visits, we bid it aloha.
Aug 15th 2010 12:46PM And someone wants the government to manage health care??
I suppose other countries will retaliate like they do on visas. Thanks, Uncle Sam.
Aug 2nd 2010 3:51PM Depends on the hotel and where it is. I don't like 'em, but that's just me. It wouldn't affect my stay unless it was so outrageous to reflect on the way the place is run. In my area, there are a lot of tats, but it's still considered pretty tacky. Specially the tramp stamp..
Apr 12th 2010 2:08PM Another thing to watch out for is an exit row with a LOT of space on a really long flight. This sometimes becomes a spot for lots of folks to stand around and stretch their legs or talk. Makes it impossible to sleep. I learned this the hard way on a flight to HKK from SFO not long ago on a UA 747. We had about 4 feet of leg room and often had 4 to 6 people standing around in it. Next time, I'll bitch to the FA to clear it out..
