  1. Wondering......was this because you bought your flights through Carnival Fly 2 the fun?
  2. Yes there is a specific terminal for Carnival. And you are correct, just tell your driver and they'll know where to go.
  3. Considering booking this for our cruise in February. Am also thinking about making a reservation for the Steakhouse. Would like to do the Steakhouse on the first night (4 day cruise) for the bottle of wine discount. Is chef's table held on a specific night of a 4 day cruise? I'd like to book it online in advance but hard to plan if I don't know what night it's held, Thanks.
  4. I've seen the coupons on a display rack near the future cruise desk.
  5. You can purchase either flexible or nonflexible fares. I was surprised to hear the flexible fare was cheaper through Carnival than the nonrefundable fare. With flexible fare you pay for it when you pay your final cruise payment whereas the other fare has to be paid at the time of booking. You can pick your seats, at least with Delta, regardless of which fare type you choose. About a month after I booked my flights and chose my seats, I decided to upgrade to comfort class and so I called Carnival and they made the changes for me. I check prices on Delta regularly and so far the prices have gone up so I saved quite a bit booking through Carnival. We live in Ontario and so flying in February is always dicey weather wise. I like the idea that if our flight is cancelled, Carnival will find a flight to the first port. Hopefully we never have to find out how exactly that works.
  6. I've booked our flights through Carnival for our upcoming cruise this February. Booked on Delta, chose our seats in comfort class and a direct flight on my choice of early morning two days before the cruise.
  7. I don't think so. There is a phone number under Fly to the Fun. We've booked flights this way for 2 cruises and both times I called the number. I've also found that Carnival's prices go up and down, just as they do if you book yourself.
  8. Looking for something different for a change from the usual mojito......what's in a lava flow?
  9. Best wishes to both of you. I had to cancel our cruise last March because my husband had to have a triple bypass in January. I too had paid for the cruise by credit card long before final payment was due. It took about a week or two but it was refunded to my credit card. They usually are pretty prompt so I'd say you should have your refund within two weeks.
  10. I wonder if this new idea will actually create more food waste. I like to try new things too but with a charge for a second entre, if I am not loving it, I'd send it back and order something else rather than pay for the second entre.
  11. Yes, please! Also have a question if you don't mind? We are cruising on the Liberty next February. It's also a 4 day with 1 seaday. I read that there will be a cooking demonstration and from what I understand is usually held on a seaday. But my dilemma is that we'd also like to do the Behind the Fun tour which is also usually held on a seaday. Do you know if there was a cooking demonstration and when it was?
  12. Thanks everyone for your best wishes and helpful suggestions. We have decided to cancel and the insurance is covering it. As you mentioned AIO, we have to wait 6 months before we can travel again. And we also needed to contact the insurance provider immediately, within one business day, to report this change in health. Thanks again, everyone.
  13. Hubby had an angiogram yesterday and learned he needs a triple by pass as early as this coming Friday. Our cruise is/was for March 31st so we've already paid in full. We do have insurance, not through Carnival though but with the exchange rate we won't get the full value refunded. I've not contacted the insurance company yet, was too long of a day yesterday. I did call Carnival about my options and found it confusing. We can cancel or we can postpone the cruise but either way the penalty is $500.00. I'm thinking since we lose money on the exchange, it might be better to postpone it. But the other thing is that we won't know much until after hubby's surgery and we have to let the insurance provider immediately. Has anyone had any experience with this and what did you do? Thanks and I hope this post makes sense since I've not had much sleep.
  14. I noticed in the description that it is a scenic 40 minute ride to Port Lucaya. So if the ride back is 40 minutes too then that would account for the 2.5 hours.
  15. We've booked this deal twice now. On our upcoming cruise we booked a suite and got 100.00 obc. We have no problem booking early saver though and also want complete control of our booking which you don't have when you deal with a travel agent. So for us we find it to be a good offer.
