We like having the option of either using a lanyard or putting our cards in a pocket. Depending on the situation, sometimes we use our lanyards, and sometimes we don't.

It depends on which way the ship is docked. It may sometimes be docked bow first, which means the cabins on the Port side would be facing land. If the ship is docked Aft end first, then the cabins on...

"PVP" stands for Personal Vacation Planner. It's sort of like a travel agent that works directly for Carnival. If you're lucky enough to get a good one (as we do), she/he can be invaluable.;)

Has she ever talked to her husband about joining "Gambler's Anonymous"? For some, gambling is an addiction, like drugs or alcohol. I don't know if this is even possible, but you might suggest she...

It would be very easy to ask a staff member how often the provided blankets are washed. I'm guessing after each use. Really no need to bring your own.

Most guys (myself included) would NEVER put duct tape on their chests, especially if it's a hairy chest. Just the thought of removing it makes me cringe. OUCH!!:eek:

No Waterworks on the Liberty. The slide is a lot of fun. Bad part about it is, it takes longer to walk up the steps than to go down the slide. Oh, to be young again.:)
