took about an hour at the Houston passport office. Really efficient and painless process to do it in person.

Was looking into a Sandals resort in Montego Bay but seems to be a pipe dream now. The Airtran A+ rewards credits don't work as well for going there and we can't find any options for just a 4 night getaway that allows us to use the tickets.

looks like we are back to going to Vegas again. Kind of disappointed.

Bummer on the Jamaica thing. Any vacation is a good vacation, though.

Anyone ever send in their passport to get extra pages added? I need to do that and I'm not sure how long it takes...

Yeah, the wife is kind of upset with me for even bringing it up now. Had I known my rewards miles would have been limited on travel to Jamaica I wouldn't have even mentioned it to her. Live and learn I guess.

I hate that Vegas is starting to sound like a secondary option.

You could take Airtrain to Orlando, and then American to Montego Bay.. depending on price of course.

Can you fly to a coastal place and then cruise there? I've used this site before and it's legit. They have some pretty good prices on cruises that stop in Jamaica. http://www.vacationstogo.com/ticker.cfm

nah, the whole point was to be able to fly free. We still have a limited budget to deal with and spending $2000 on staying at Sandals was pretty much the whole budget.

We just have to stick to US cities for this little getaway. I also think I will transfer all these airtran rewards over to southwest because there are not travel blocks on southwest.

Get it a hell of a lot earlier than needed, mine took a month. I wasn't going anywhere in particular, I just wanted one and they are good for 10 years.

They aren't that expensive, almost everyone ought to have one, and they work perfectly fine as ID. Its a lot more convenient to hand that over to TSA in the airport than to dig your DL out of your wallet, and they look kinda cool, too.

The base price for a 7-day cruise starts around $800 for two people in an inside cabin. Assume that you'll add another 40% for miscellaneous cruise stuff, so that'll be about $1,100. Fly for free to the launch city.

Go to that site I mentioned, and do the advanced search for ships that stop at Montego Bay.
