  1. I had to chuckle when I read your comment, because it could have been me writing it. I do not have a printer, as well, and have to go to my local library to do this. And the library has become a hassle, in this age of COVID. I have to check in at the resource desk and give a specific reason for needing to use one of their computers, because it’s not allowed to just come in to browse or play games. Then they “assign” you a computer and come over to it with you to take the plastic wrap off keyboard and mouse. I will be doing my check in for my January cruise on October 26. I’m currently 117 days
  2. Thank you for taking the time to write a review with pics. I have a 14 day Panama Canal cruise booked for January out of Galveston, TX, if we can return to cruising.
  3. Scanning a menu could be a problem for some of us seniors. We recently went to a restaurant that required that, and since my hubby does not have a smartphone, he did not have a menu. I had trouble figuring out what to do, but my grandson helped me out. Thank goodness we were with family, or we would have been without menus! Not sure I like this.
  4. I can’t wait not only until we sail again, but when I can read another review from you and Patti. I’ve reread all my favorites from you and other favorites (Sid and Saint Greg), but it’s time for us to all gat back to the seas. It’s been a Long 6 months!
  5. 138 days until we cruise the Freedom for a 14 day Journey cruise to Panama Canal. Then 507 days until we sail the Mardi Gras for the first leg of our B2B.
  6. We sailed in February with our daughter and her family on the Glory, and our granddaughter, who was less than a month shy of 14, was at her teen club every chance there was an activity. She loved it! We will be sailing with them again in January 2022, and this granddaughter will be 15, nearly 16 then. Not sure if she will go at that point, but maybe she will. But her brothers, who previously enjoyed the younger camps, will be older as well, 11 and 13, so they will be attending the club she enjoyed so well this past February.
  7. Actually, I heard the CEO of Carnival talk the other day, and he pretty much said this. That they are better equipped to handle this virus than they were in March, and will quarantine only those effected. So, it sounds like no mass ship quartine. That would be great! So, I suspect less cabins will be booked, and they will have an area for quarantine only.
  8. Yes, very weird. I usually have purchases for my cabin made by now, along with all my excursions booked. I have nothing done for my upcoming cruise. I just can’t plan, and that’s very depressing. But I do have $1200 OBC that Carnival gave me for the cancelled B2B cruises, so I will just book onboard if we go.
  9. Greg, I know we all miss cruising, but I also miss reading all your reviews. I guess I may have to go back and reread all of the reviews I’ve already read. Boy, I wish we could cruise soon, but Im afraid my 14 day Journey cruise to Panama Canal on the Freedom in January will be the next on the chopping block. I had my B2B on the Magic in April cancelled, and I transferred all my FCC to the January cruise. If this one gets cancelled, I will transfer all FCC to my B2B on the Mardi Gras in January 2022.
  10. I almost forgot about those videos! I do believe I might have one or two......but no VHS player any longer to view them! 😂😂
  11. Hmm....I hope you’re not flying out of a northern city. We fly out of Buffalo, and we would never risk flying in the day of cruise. Anything can happen to delay or cancel your flight. Way too risky. I have not tried flying in the day of since my first Carnival cruise in 2000. Unbelievably stressful. I haven’t done it since. We fly in at the very least, one day prior, but often more days, for a better “cushion”.
  12. I’m already booked on a cruise for January 2021. It is a 14 day Journey cruise that was open for bookings BEFORE this pandemic hit, so it’s pretty full. What will they do about us? Perhaps they hope people will cancel, out of fear of cruising, to give us a reduce capacity? 🤷‍♀️
  13. I can’t stress this enough, book only directly by yourself. I know a lot of you swear by TA, and even some had no problems getting your refunds, but the vast majority booked with a TA have had all kinds of issues, some still waiting for money for cruises in April. I booked direct, and had no issues. They said it would take 90 days to me, and it took 60. And I received every single penny back to my account.
  14. Well, as I said in a previous post, all my refunds took until the end of May to land on my cc, but were dated as processed on April 8.
