    Best Piano Entertainer on Carnival? (Part 2)

    [quote name='alreadypacked']I couldn't agree more! We used to close down the piano bar every night but not anymore. We miss it a lot since it was our favorite nighttime venue. Last year on the Freedom the piano singer was Martin Aucoin. We tried to give him a chance, but he couldn't sing. I have never heard someone who was actually being paid to sing sound so off key. After my sister and my friend left me at the piano bar, there were only 3 other patrons left besides me, and then I soon left. [COLOR=red]As much as I hate cigarette smoke, I think maybe they should make the piano bar a smoking venue again. When people could smoke in there, it was always hopping--you could barely find a seat. Maybe if the bar generated more revenue they could pay for the better singers.[/COLOR] [COLOR=red] [/COLOR] This past year we've taken a break from Carnival but are considering the Breeze for next year. I'm hoping the piano bar improves by then.[/quote] Couldn't agree more...Although I do smoke a piano bar/club has always been a smoking venue on all the lines. Since that has gone by the wayside the talent level has dropped and the piano bars are mostly empty...Very sad because it has always been in the top two of must do entertainment venues on cruises...

    TBA Question

    Just a quick question about Carnival's "To be assigned" status. Will we get our cabin assignment before we get to the ship?
  4. Is the first night in the main dining rooms open seating only?

    Carnival to quit San Juan as home port in 2014

    [quote name='katsura']this a c/p from caribbean businness page Since Gov. Alejandro García Padilla gave his budget speech last week, much has been discussed about the proposed changes to the sales tax, but there has also been discussion about the things the governor didn't say. Case in point, when talking about the tourism industry, García Padilla mentioned that cruiselines such as Royal Caribbean, Princess and Disney would continue serving the island, fostering job creation and economic development. However, there was one glaring omission on that list: Carnival Cruise Lines. This has sent a perhaps unintended signal to some industry representatives who, as this paper reported recently, were up in arms about the possibility of Carnival moving their homeport from Puerto Rico to the Bahamas, dealing a potentially lethal blow to the local cruise sector. Although public officials since then have said that a deal renewal between the cruise line and the Puerto Rico government would take place within the next few weeks, Carnival's omission from the governor's speech suggests such a deal hasn't yet been completely worked out.
