Sherry has cruise news on:

Listener Question:

My husband and I are divorced and I want to take my son on a cruise for his 14th birthday. His father was cool with him going, and is now is being a jerk and saying he won't sign for him to go. Do you have any suggestions or is there a way around this?

We get a review of the newly refurbished Carnival Elation. In fall 2017, the ship underwent a massive refurbishment that added close to 100 balcony staterooms, Vista Suites, a Guy's Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, and other Fun Ship enhancements. 

Sherry has cruise news on:

Listener Question:  My husband and I are cruising this summer and are debt free. We have one credit card but it's only for emergencies. I'm reading where the cruise line puts a hold on debit cards on embarkation day. Is there another option instead of handing over my bank card? Shannon - Johnsontown, PA
