    I'm both glad and stressed about international flights. I left Jamaica yesterday at 7am and did not get home till 5:30pm. Montego Bay to Miami is a 1 hour, 10 minute flight.

    We went through 4 checkpoints in Customs. Waited on long lines, had to show passports 4 different times, asked about my whereabouts 4 times, only got groped once(and it wasn't bad) and walked for miles at the airport.

    I haven't flown international in a long time, and while I'm glad it's as vigorous as it is...I'm going back to Cruising.

    You don't think In bounds from a foreign country should have to show passports ?
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    After the third time, it kind of gets on your nerves.

    It was great, we had lots of fun, especially my daughter. I had a great view of the ocean and we had great weather. No complaints about the trip itself.

    I suppose the repeated checks are to prevent the swiss cheese effect..If Number 1, 2 and 3 miss something, maybe number 4 won't. 9/11 changed everything. It just makes traveling a hassle.

    With a cruise, you show all your credentials at port once and you're good for the entire trip and any excursions only require your room card.

    Sounds like a fun trip.

    After my last mini vacation to CA and the great weather and beaches I doubt I would spend my money outside of the United States. It was a perfect trip with lots to see and do.

    Very easy trip....
