Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. I recall having the same issue, but somehow had click so the list of other decks appeared in the drop down menu, almost like a hidden thing you need to click. It was annoying and I didn't even figure out until towards the end of my last cruise.
  2. I have the offer on my Blue Cash card, too bad I booked my cruise just a few weeks ago with payment in full. Will onboard charges count towards this? Or should I prepay my gratuities now? It will be about $700 between 4 cruisers... For a past NCL offer, booking an excursions online did trigger the credit.
  3. I used a TA for my parents booking as the rate was cheaper than direct, they said the OBC likely would not appear until 2nd day onboard.
  4. We did a trip for totality back in 2017, very unique experience! In addition to the birds and bugs that people mentioned, plants like sunflowers droop down.
  5. Just charged once for gratuities if solo.
  6. Might be a bit late on replying to this, but we did this via ship excursion as we had limited hours in port. They did offer it as only half day and presumably slightly cheaper than a full day pass. Buffet lunch was included with the ship excursion, you only go through the line once though, no returning for seconds. Can't comment on transport as it was included with the ship. Probably one of the few times the ship excursion has been worth it, their bus picked us up, and there was an Ocean World rep onboard who explained what things to do and kind of a recommended itinerary if you wanted to see the different shows they offered.
  7. Just booked, finally a new Carnival ship to me. We've been on Legend and Spirit, which are almost the same ship even though we took them from/to different places.
  8. Never flush those flushable wipes. I bring doggie poop bags so it's less gross for the steward. If I forget, I usually have at least a magazine to rip out a page and wrap things up in.
  9. As gold, you get the bottle of water and an appreciation drink if the cruise is long enough, for each member. I usually get my bottle from a bar so I know it's free and don't get inadvertently charged from the stateroom and I presume less work as the room steward won't have to restock it.
  10. For a Carnival cruise, I wouldn't worry about it. They have a lot dedicated to them. I actually took an NCL cruise (who doesn't normally port in Baltimore) and they opened an extra side lot (just a little further away from the terminal, but you drop off your bags from the car so no worries) to accommodate NCL passengers.
  11. The flyers onboard and at the CN desk. I'll see if I brought any of them back. When I asked the rep about it, they said it was still what Miami was telling them, told them I no longer had an expiration online and they just deflected.
  12. Bought 2 CN on my recent cruise, though they still tout the 4 year expiration. I already have 1 CN so here is hoping for a triple up that will work for me to use these up.
  13. I haven't read all the pages of comments, but how old is this kid? Maybe he rather just be alone with his girlfriend rather than tagging along with his parents? The "terrorism concern" was just their polite way of dodging being stuck with the kid's parents on a ship for a week.
  14. In addition to my HAL, I got Princess today. Nothing for my usual Carnival or NCL 😞
  15. AMEX only wants me to book on Oceania or HAL 😞
