    What day to book the Steakhouse...... 

    We always book the last night. It is our Grande Hurrah.   Most likely, you have enjoyed everything the MDR has to offer and the last night is always a great evening of dining and reminiscing about our voyage.

    CCl stock is going up and up hopefully it will continue.


    I bought in early 2000 and watched it go up and down...but always enjoyed my OBC benefits.  As of February, 2020,   I never look at the price....so it really doesn't matter to me until the Board of Directors pulls that perk.  Oh...at one time, I was ahead $4000 but know better than to look today....LOL

  3. Really feeling bad for the out of work staff....since they are contract workers they won't be able to draw any unemployment.   Let's hope CCL houses and feeds them on hiatus since none of them can afford to fly home and then return to the ship.   ....if they would be allowed to fly home.

    Something new for us on Magic for YTD:  we got in line as usual, but were told to request a table on the HUB app.......

    Their new HUB app was the best thing to be unveiled.   We could request our table from our cabin or where ever we happened to be and our wait was usually 10 minutes tops.  Received notice our actual table number was assigned and we walked directly in and was escorted to our table.   Service was outstanding, meals prompt and our only complaint was the poor quality of the table water they served.      


    Loved their new system.  

  5. CCL Magic locations:  


    Laundry room locations:
    2 deck near #2377 
    7 deck next to #7349
    10 deck across from #10264
    Ironing rooms, as you know you cannot bring an iron onto the ship but you don't have to go around all wrinkly, yes you can have your pressing sent out but if you want to save a little money you can do it yourself at these locations:
    first deck across #1423
    six deck across from 6360
    eight deck across from 8395
    nine deck across from 9403
    The ironing rooms have two boards and two irons, you have to bring your own starch. They also sport a large sink which might be good to do your hand washables in.

    I would like to buy stock, but am holding out for now until I see how things go. 

    Buying stock is like buying toilet paper when it goes on sale....price drop.  When a commodity goes on sale you BUY!!

     The use of the iron in the laundry is free. 

    While everyone is standing in line for the buffet upon embankment, you can find me in the laundry room doing my ironing.  NEVER has there been a line in that room......LOL

    Thanks for the info,has anyone brought the small hand held steamer to remove wrinkles?

    You can try to bring one...but most likely, you will be able to pick it up in the "naughty room" when you disembark. They will leave you a note in your luggage telling you what they confiscated.

    Does anyone have the email for the Vista's steakhouse & Cucina?  ...would like to make reservations before we board. 

    You will have to use CCL website to make reservations.   They can be found under the "Manage" tab of their website.

    Are people on Atlantis any more friendly than another cruise line, in your experience?

    Highly recommend Atlantis....the gambit of cruisers runs from characters trying to sun tan their nostrils to good old boy ordinary gays....liberals to conservatives.  Their cruises are like going to a gay bar with 5000 guests.

    Bubly is my fave! I saw on Carnivals website that they offer Grapefruit, Orange, and Lime Bubly onboard.

    You made me curious and I had to buy some at home to try.   I am hooked too!!   Love that Grapefruit and Mango.   Haven't tried the other flavors.  My old choice was club soda with extra lime slices but grapefruit has turned my head!!  


    My question...how do they serve it.....by the glass or by the can?

    Does anyone know where muster station D4 is on the Magic?

    Don't fret....staff and management will make sure you are present and accounted for.   They will be more  than happy to direct you to the proper location.  It's a ship wide thing.   Bon Voyage!!


    Anyone recall the olden days when you had to wear your life jacket to the drill?  LOL
