Well, I tried to use my FREE denied boarding compensation voucher but it was just such a hassle to get it booked, that I just went ahead the next day and bought a full fare ticket to Las Vegas on the website. That way I did not have to speak to anyone at United. I cannot tell you how frustrated I was and still am at United Airlines. I could not get a reservation agent to help me book this ticket. How can anyone run a business that way. The airlines need all the happy customers they can get. But all they do is Piss People Off on a consistent basis. I will try to use the voucher on my next trip, when I am not working on a deadline and I don’t need to get some where on a particular time and day. But the next time I call United I really want to talk to a person that I can understand and that will not insult me on the phone. Get a Clue United! Hire people that care about your customers! I really liked flying United, I want to like United, but they keep kicking me in the head every time I try to book a flight!

When You “Got to Go!” There is Help…..

Posted by thetraveldoctor on August 12, 2008


If you travel for business or pleasure, there comes a point in your day when you “Got to Go!” Yes that’s right, you have to find a toilet and you are in a strange city and you need one BAD! What do you do? Well fear not anymore, I found this great website that works on your mobile phone. It’s called MizPee and it will direct you to the closest toilet in the area. Just go to http://www.mizpee.com on your mobile browser, click on “Find toilet” then input your location and click “Find” and presto! a list of Toilets near your current location pops up. This can be a real life saver when you are on the GO! (no pun intended).

Check it out and let me know if it worked for you. It has worked for me, thank goodness!

I have been sailing with Royal Caribbean since the late 70’s. I am always look for ways to save money and take as many cruises as possible. You may not know that Royal Caribbean offers Senior Citizen fares for people 55 years of age and older. Now these reduced fares are not available on all ships on all sailings but the sailings they do offer them on can save you hundreds of dollars. If you book your cruise through a travel agent that knows their cruises, they can help you save big bucks. If you want to save $300 to $500 per person, look into the Senior Fares on Royal Caribbean. You can check out the senior deals at www. royalcaribbean.com and maybe I will see you on your next Royal Caribbean Cruise!
