  1. Not that hard, my spouse & I have been doing carry-on's only for the last dozen cruises or so. Last cruise was a five days in Tampa followed by a 13 day cruise to LA. Tomorrow we fly to PR prior to a Southern Caribbean leaving on Sunday, again carry-on only. One piece of luggage forces one to prioritize. I heartily recommend it.
  2. We did a couple of Journeys Cruises and they're pretty much like any other cruise except longer. The only one that sticks out in my mind is the one we took from Hawaii to Vancouver as part of the Legend(?) re-positioning from Australia. Apparently they had a lot of Australian beers left over and were handing them out for free at the "captains celebration", the returning cruiser's party and the D/P party. I recall taking 6/7 beers to our cabin one night.... ALSO, they had some guest lecturer aboard that talked about photography and astronomy(?). I went to one of them and it's more-or-less on the 6th grade level, I was not impressed......
  3. Nobody really cares what one wears on Carnival for formal night. It's pretty much anything is allowed other than shorts and "wife-beater" T-shirts. That being said, wearing a formal military uniform would be fine...
  4. AFA Belize, we go outside the gate take a water taxi to Cay Calker, wander around get some seafood and a few drinks, then head back to the ship a few hours before departure. Always fun. As to those who say "they are adventurous, but won't go outside the gate a Belize"; No you're not.
  5. I agree. Door decorations are an exercise in vanity (look at me!) and nothing else...
  6. I especially like the irony of suggestions to put your booze in a Yeti cup in your cabin, then carry it around. On one hand the cup is used to signal "Look at me! I can afford an overpriced, impractical cup", but it is used to ferry booze from the cabin to poolside to avoid high priced drinks there.... Oh sure, people will rationalize their decision (they don't have MY booze, I don't want to walk to a bar, etc, etc), but I find the whole "Yeti cup thing" comical, curious, and strange...
  7. Whats this have to do with Carnival? Shouldn't this be in the Florida ports board?
  8. I did the behind the fun tour once, it's OK, but I won't repeat it. Then again, I did a stint in the Navy and sorta know how ships work...
  9. Glad we went when we did. I think we were on the fourth or fifth Carnival cruise there. Had a great time and fun memories...
  10. What did Carnival say when you called and/or emailed them? If you didn't, wouldn't that be a better way to find out than posting here?
  11. Doing a "carry-on only" cruise really isn't that tough (e.g. there are no "secrets"). Just use your common sense. We've done a week in NOLA followed by a B2B2B just doing carry-on. it's not that big of a deal. One thing not mentioned so far in this thread is how liberating it feels doing only one carry-on. Ya pack what ya need and exclude the rest. I'm a big believer in the phrase "happiness is knowing the differences between needs and wants...".
  12. I have a small (3") ceramic bear I purchased at a gift shop in a retirement home in Sitka, AK. At the time of purchase I was told that it was one of "Eleanor's bears" and she was eating lunch if I wanted to say hi. We did, and had a charming visit with her and heard many interesting stories about Alaska in the 30's/40's. I also have a 4" clay egg, white with black spots I bought from a street vendor in Roaton (before Mahogany Bay). Nothing special other than being hand-made. Not a big fan of buying anything made in China and being sold as a "souvenir". To me that is an oxymoron.
  13. RFID and Magstripe technologies are not mutually exclusive (i.e. your S&S card can have both)....
  14. Am I missing something here??? So you own the bag and have it your possession, yet are asking others if it is water proof? I would think you are in the best position to make that determination yourself.
