Shipmaven....thank you for the info re: AmEx Platinum and Pinnacle Grill. Neither AmEx nor my TA told us about that, Sage: Of the many back-to-backs we have done, the MOST we have had to do is to disembark at any time during the disembarkation procedure and present our Passports to Immigration, We do not always have to do it....it depends upon what your last port was before returning to FLL. If a U.S. port, you would not have to clear again. After presenting our documents, we are permitted to either return immediately to the ship or remain ashore at our option. Happy to answer any back-to-backs questions you may have. We simply love, love, love those b-to-b's. For us, the ship is our destination. We have spent so very much time in the Caribbean that most of the ports mean little to us. Our destination is the ship and the more time aboard, the better.
