We missed out on purchasing FTTF when it was first available for our upcoming cruise on the Vista. I'm pretty sure it was still $59.95 at that time. And now, $79.95! Since Carnival recently made a...

Several cruises ago, I had forgotten to pack a dress shirt to wear with my suit and tie. Ever since then, I've made it a habit to group related things together before packing. Suit, dress shirt, tie,...

I agree with Flatbush. I don't know how long the flight is from Scotland to Florida, but I definitely wouldn't fly that far just to go on a short cruise. I'd want it to be at least a 7 day (or...

If you go to Guest Services and tell them you've become members of the Balcony Club, they'll have your cabin steward commemorate the event by putting a red bow on your cabin railing. ;):D

As much as I like C&W music, if I were ever to book a cruise out of Galveston, I'd rather hear some good hard Texas Rock, like ZZ Top. :D

Our first Carnival cruise was on the Imagination, back in 1999. Lots of gold and glitz. Had a Las Vegas-y look to it. I half expected to see the Rat Pack entertaining in the theater. The Conquest is...

Pack my own TP? No, I think I'll save the space in my suitcase for other things and use the TP the ship provides. Eleven cruises and haven't had a problem with it yet.
