  1. Well, only time will tell. I have a friend who works on the MSC Meraviglia so he will keep me updated when they begin to sail with passengers....I believe it is August 3rd. I myself am not quite ready to sail yet as I travel solo and that would be rather solitary right now...but I am hoping for a sailing 2nd week of December. At my gym they reopened the sauna in May, but with a limit of 3 people and masks. Then 2 weeks later both steam and sauna and no masks or limits. And they are quite busy now.
  2. And I think I know Exactly Why you needed to look like you were in the US! I may have the same predicament soon!
  3. Thanks Everyone! I liked Blerkone's response about the lack of cell towers so of course...no location station!
  4. Does Carnival have GPS/location signals for Guest WIFI true to their location when at sea? I don’t mean for the ship’s guidance and radar, but for their WIFI network for the passengers. On my last sailing on the MSC Meraviglia from NYC to Canada, when at sea, my “Location” was appearing as “Such-and-such, Germany”. Of course, when in port and off the ship’s WIFI the location was true to where we were on my Verizon network. I asked one of the ship’s crew and she replied that all the crew all appeared as being in Germany as well. Is this typical of all cruise lines because they are not registered in the US or Canada? Is there a way to set your actual location which is on the ship in the ocean? Let’s say I log into an app to contact my mother…it will say she’s in Berlin, Germany…when I know darn well she is in the lounge playing bingo! HLR
  5. Hey there! Thanks so much for your message. Usually when traveling solo I eat solo too....occasionally joining other couples...sometimes it works....sometimes not. However on my last cruise, MSC Meraviglia, there was ONLY traditional dining. I had a great time seeing the same people each night for dinner. All solo travelers from all walks and ages. And each night it was a slightly different selection of people as one or two opted for a specialty restaurant. It was the best cruise I had in a long time! Howard
  6. Which cruise lines have GPS/location signals for Guest WIFI true to their location when at sea? I don’t mean for the ship’s guidance and radar, but for the WIFI network for the passengers.

  7. Hi Howard! It's Howard! Look at you toasting with your loverly wife there in your picture! Nope...that email was rejected by the demon in the mailroom also. So...any clue as to the open-ness of the steam and saunas? One person at a time? I'm single and sail as a solo....if I were to sail NOW I'd be pretty lonely have to sit, sun and eat alone and barely able to meet and mingle... Howard
  8. Hey Mark...tried this email and it was returned by the demon in the mailroom!
  9. Amazingly....I logged into CruiseCritic today specifically to look for info on Carnival Legend's steam and sauna and here it is! The big question is....are cruise ship's free steam and saunas open now post covid? What are the rules? I am looking at a sailing in December and of course rules change every 5 minutes! Howard
  10. Thanks...but those aren't shuttles....they are private car services.
  11. If a party of one [1] was arriving on Amtrak into Winter Park Florida is there a shuttle to Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal? I have only found private car services which are rather pricey....for 1! What about The Orlando Amtrak station? Howard
  12. Hello! So there is no free steam or sauna..only if you pay extra for the spa? Are they Co-ed in the Spa? HLR
  13. Hello! What about the refurbished Carnival Sunrise and Radiance? HLR
  14. Of these newly refurbished and renamed ships, the Sunshine, Sunrise and Radiance....which still have free sauna in the locker rooms as opposed to only at the Thermal Spa? Trying to decide if it would be worth booking a Spa cabin. I sail solo so can be quite a bit more expensive. HLR
