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...

This isn't new info., but it's something that a lot of people are unaware of. The even numbered cabins are on the port (left) side of the ship, and the odd numbered cabins are on the starboard...

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...

Keep a close watch on the prices, and when you see a price that looks good to you, book the flight and don't look back. Also, if there's more than one airline to choose from, check them all. In our...

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.

I have always preferred to choose our cabin, rather than let the cruise line do so. I look at the deck plans, and read the comments that others have posted about their room location. Once I've made...

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.

By the way OP, there is another option. The T.V. in the cabin has two or three music channels. It's usually pop or hip-hop (not much of a selection). Prop your balcony door open, turn on one of the...
