  1. Good evening! We are booked on the Carnival Freedom in August. We have YTD and I was wondering if any recent Freedom cruisers can tell me which dining room has the YTD? Thanks so much for your help. Also, this is the first 7 day cruise we've done in 3 years (we've been doing the 5 days on the Valor). So, can any recent Freedom cruisers confirm they DO serve lobster and escargot on 7 day cruises? I was disappointed to find out they don't serve lobster on 5 days anymore, plus, on our 5 day in April, the Carnival fleet was not serving escargot due to a shortage of escargot. Just wondering if they are serving now. Thanks so much. As always, a cruise, even without lobster and escargot, is better than NOT being a cruise, lol.
  2. Good morning! We will be on the Valor next week. I was wondering if anyone has ever cruised on Easter Sunday and was there a non-denominational Easter service on board? Thank you.
  3. Hello! Thanks for the tip on bringing my own Stevia. I have that on my packing list for next week. What other artificial sweetners do cruiseships have? I'm also bringing the SF flavor packs for my bottled water.
  4. Thanks for all the congratulations and tips/advice! I know the dining rooms/buffets will be fairly easy to follow my WW plan because of the variety of salads and fruits. Thanks for the tips on some alcoholic drinks and SF items. I do have 1 more question: does someone know the difference between SF and no sugar added? As for WW, does the "no sugar added" have more points than SF?
  5. Good morning! I started WW (weight watchers) in January and have lost 25lbs on the way to my 100lb goal. I have a cruise in 3 weeks. Are any of you on WW too and can share points of specialized cruise type food, types of skinny drinks available and sugar free desserts available? As for "normal" foods, I can look up the points on my WW app. On John Healds post yesterday, he mentioned you can request a sugar free warm chocolate melting cake. Has anyone tried this? Any WW tips from those on WW would be extremely helpful to the new WW member. Thank you.
  6. Scarlet is the aft dining room. So, YTD was in the back of the ship?
  7. Crimson is midship and Scarlett is aft
  8. So, YTD was only in the aft dining room? The reason I'm asking is because I don't like the aft dining rooms because of too much vibration so we always book dinner in the mid ship dining room. Thanks.
  9. Good evening! We've booked the Carnival Dream and currently signed up for Early seating but we may change to YTD. Which dining room and floor is Early seating? Which dining room and floor is YTD? We just returned from the Valor several months ago and for the midship dining room, they had Early/Late seating on the second level and YTD on the 1st level. The aft dining room was all Early/Late dining. Thanks for the info and help.
  10. Howdy CC friends, Well, I'm booked on my FIRST casino cruise offer, the Premier Getaway on the Valor in April! This will be my 22nd Carnival cruise and I'm SOOOOO excited like it's my very first cruise ever, lol. I really don't know what to expect as for the "surprises" and "giveaways", and I'm SOOOOO excited about the DOU card for me and my husband! Has anyone ever taken a Premier Getaway cruise and can tell me what to expect? Even after so many cruises, I' always get excited about an upcoming cruise, but this time is even more excitement because I don't know what to expect on my "Premier Getaway" virgin cruise, lol.
  11. So, you were in 9200 on the Valor and the blinds were broken? When was this? Did they stay open the whole time?
  12. Good morning, so sorry but I won't be able to get you an ornament. I don't have those online payment accounts and would have no idea how to do it. Plus, shipping to you might be an issue as well. So sorry I couldn't help you 😕 And, thanks, we plan on having a great trip.
  13. Thanks so much for your information 🙂 I knew there was no deck out front and that's another reason why we wanted to try this cabin: for the HUGE windows, HUGE room, forward room looking out the front of the ship without a public deck and the location on the Lido deck 🙂 We're excited! As for the shades, we want to leave them open while we sleep, to lay in bed and look at the night sky 🙂 However, if the sunrise is "brutally bright", can we just open the shades a little? Not sure if the shades are either "all the open" or "all the way closed" and it won't let you open/close partially. As for the walk, after all the eating we'll do, we need to walk anyway, lol. Thanks for your info 🙂
  14. casino@carnival.com I use this e-mail and receive responses back within a couple of days. 🙂
