The ships don't give out ship pins anymore. They only give VIFP pins to returning guests. However, you can buy ship pins in the gift shop on board. And the pins that you can buy are a different...

Although others have suggested e-mailing the Maitre D, or contacting John Heald, there's no guarantee that you'll get a reply back. Soon after you've embarked, go to the MDR and speak with the Maitre...

It's either Gorton's or Mrs. Paul's. Probably depends on what's on sale at the grocery store when the ship is in port.:D

I remember seeing a picture that someone had posted of a small bulletin board (approx. 12" x24") that they used to display their pins on.

When you leave the ship and walk out to the street, turn left. Walk for about 1/2 mile, and you'll see a small park, with horse drawn carriages in front. Here's a link with the information....

I think it also helps if you show up at about the same time each evening. If you have Any Time Dining, and one night you show up at 6:00, and the next night you don't go until a different time (say...

Did anybody notice......?

Carnival has changed the page for booking excursions. Unless you have a current booking number, you probably won't be able to see it.

Probably your best bet would be to go talk to the Maitre D soon after boarding on embarkation day. That would be a better time than waiting until dinner time.

Carnival's "live" cams

What the heck is going on with the Carnival ships' live cams? It seems like they're off more than they're on. The system must've been installed by the same IT guys that take care of the computers in...

It may be different in the U.K., but here in the U.S., to the best of my knowledge, there is no lounge for those with FTTF. The lounge is for Diamond and Platinum cruisers.

In a sense, the salesperson also acts as a customer service person. My contention is, and has been for years, that if you're going to be a salesperson/customer service person, make it a point to know...

To prevent a "He said / she said" debate, get whatever you're told in writing. That way, you have written proof of everything. Then, even if the sales person gives you inaccurate information, you...

It doesn't have to be strictly steel drum music. How about a mix of Calypso, Reggae, and Latin? Confine the hip-hop to one of the clubs.

We'll soon be doing the 8-day Southern Carib. itinerary on the Breeze. We'll be in Curacao from 1:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Aside from going to a bar or casino in the evening, is there anything else worth...

money exchange in D.R. ?

While in the D.R, do you make all of your purchases, including excursions and taxi rides, with U.S. dollars, or do you exchange dollars for pesos ahead of time?

$20.00 seems cheap for a whole lobster to be served in the MDR. Great deal if you can get it. My guess would be lobster tail. Your best bet would be to ask your waiter before ordering.

You can print them whenever you're ready. But, if there are any changes, you'll have to print them again. Just make sure all of the information is complete and correct before printing.
