Just returned from 8 fabulous days at CSS, and our trip was fantastic even though American Airlines decided our luggage should stay in Miami, rather than be sent to Montego Bay.
Before leaving, I packed a carry-on with an extra set of clothes for me & my husband, as well as a bathing suit for each, toiletries, and small (3 oz) bottles of sunscreen, and all our small essentials (iPod charger, sunglasses, hats).
So when we arrived at MBJ and discovered our larger pieces of luggage did NOT, we were fine. No problem, mon. We left on the bus, arrived at CSS, and began our vacation immediately. Hit the beach, dined at Pallazina, went to the Balloon Bar. AA tracked the luggage and sent it on a later flight, so eventually our pieces showed up at the Bell Desk (after 10:30pm!).
Big shout-out to Margaret in Guest Services for kindly harassing American Airlines until they delivered our luggage. She did this so we could have a worry-free day. She is *wonderful*.
