I'm too lazy to look up this question so here it goes: are the customs restrictions the same for Puerto Rico as the rest of the U.S.? I will need to bring some of that delicious Spanish wine home.

Evelyn you must have mentioned this somewhere else, because I looked up PIA last week. Great fares for this September from CHI to BCN. $354 OW in economy, and ~$800 in business. The reviews vary but seem decent, so I asked around where I work. My DH had a strongly negative response (for mainly personal reasons, but also the whole terrorist state thing), an Afghani doc said it wouldn't be his first choice, but if it were that much cheaper he would consider it and the Iranian Midwife said she had never heard of them. I didn't find any actual Pakistani coworkers to ask .
So with DHs response, plus having to add the fare from SFO/Oak, I don't think it would work out for us, since it looks like fares from SFO through NY are around $1100 and my father could meet us in NY from IAD for the long leg.

does anyone know how it works about getting into PR? i know its a territory of the US, but does it have the same entry requirements as the US? do we need an ESTA? if not, if we are travelling back through the US in transit on the way back to europe do we need one?

yay, we've managed to change rooms, we were on deck 1 forward but wanted to try and get back onto deck 2 or higher as not so keen on being so low down.
Now in 2134, and MIL is across the hall in 2137, and more importantly we get a window now
we're at the back near the elevators and the stairs, and just under the entrance to parrot cay, more importantly staggering distance to promenade lounge

You will need ESTA for entering Puerto Rico. It was only for the first year of ESTA that you didn't need it for Puerto Rico, but since 2010 it is required for there as well.
Anyway, ESTA is required for the US even if you are only passing through in transit.

We're in 2135 so we'll be right across the hall! Hoping to change to your side of the hall closer to the cruise though.

Off topic, again... 'cause we never, ever do that here...

I was already feeling blue this week, not sure why, and now the AC man is here, supposed to be doing the 6 month check and clean on the unit, and we're already up to $350 in parts/repairs. He also told me the whole unit is going to need to be replaced soon.

Really not the way I wanted to spend my morning off. This was all supposed to take 30-45 mins. It's been almost 2 hours, and he's not done yet.

This is not a good week! Wish I could take a few days off from work, but that's not going to happen - no one to cover for me and we need the $$.

I need some jokes or stories to cheer me up. Let's hear them! Please.

Thanks, had no clue what we'd need and to be honest, at the time of posting I couldn't be bothered to google it

No jokes come to mind but just imagine how good that first FAB will taste. That might help

We're baaaaccckkkkkk!!

I can't believe this thread is already at 113 pages!!!!

Well, we have booked this cruise again, because it was my favorite cruise of all time when we went on the last one!! Still not 100% sure we will make it, I need to look at the airfare when it comes out in a few months, but I am really hoping it works out! All new ports too, how great is that??

So, it will be:

Myself, Danae, age 49 at the time we sail;

My DM, Phyllis, age 81 at the time we sail;

My DS, Jonas, age 10 at the time we sail;

My DS, Carter, age 7 at the time we sail

We splurged on a verandah room this time, #6544.

I need to get signed up for a bunch of things - FEs, of course, Palo brunch and some mixology!!!

I have not read through the 113 pages, so have we got a name for this cruise? Anyone know what new things might be added to the Magic in drydock that we can look forward to?
