    I’ve got my next vacation scheduled for Nashville but am planning the one after that and the cruise talk got me intrigued. Think I might book one after that but I’ve never been on a cruise before.

    Where did you book to get the best deal and what would you recommend/do differently?

    TSA in Gainesville's airport is sooooo much faster than any of the other airports I have been thru. They actually had to wait on me to get me checked thru. Got here a little earlier than needed because my 1st leg from G'ville to Atlanta is sold out and will be a full boat. But I was sitting in the departure area at my gate 1 1/4 hr before departure. Who said TSA is a hassle!!!!

    I just started cruising so can't really say best way to get deals. However usually every cruise line keep offering deals to try and get people in.

    Usually cruising during the off season will be cheapest. If you want the most bang for your buck then just get an inside room. I dropped 3k for a balcony while it would of just been 800 for an inside.

    Once you start going on cruises you can't stop.

    Gainesville is a really nice regional airport. You would think with only 2 gates it would be a hassle but I've never had any issue there.

    Update:

    Checked in with customer at 0530. Was told 2 things.

    1: there are no mt trls available for preloading... told the clerk there are 2 out there and gave her the numbers. Of course, that was ignored.

    2: I am considered to be a workin and they don't load workins on the weekend so was told to come back 1600 tomorrow!

    Sent dispatch their reply.
    Get the following msg:
    "Notified CSRS. Will keep you updated"

    This is going to be a long weekend.

    I just might join SSB in departing this company. Since 2017, this place really has turned into a major #### show

    Based on my conversations I’ve had with them over the last few weeks and their responses, i sense they don’t care one bit…

    “Notified csrs” ie I emailed someone and they will look into it Monday when they get in, after chatting at the water cooler for 30 min. This sounds like incompetence on the customers end though. The fact that they had empty’s to preload, didn’t, then won’t work you in is ####.
     
    JoeyJunk and gentleroger Thank this.
