  1. For the most protection- I believe you want the 3rd (or 2nd if J & J) to be more than 14 days before the cruise- It is between the day of the shot and 14 days that the shot begins its work
  2. I believe this has been changed since then-I just booked a Jan 15th 7 day on Sat 10/16, my payment due date is 12/1.
  3. offers are not always the same for all card holders-I don't have the Carnival one yet, but got the Celebrity and used the RCL already. Keep in mind that they will only display up to 100 available offers. As you add offers to your card, more will show
  4. Is there any limit on the shareholder OBC? Far fetched scenario, but after I retire if I go on a cruise a month, would they cut me off?😃
  5. Applying OBC (or just taking a marker charged to cabin-basically the same thing) to a table has a 3% fee, no fee on slot machine
  6. John Heald has mentioned that the OBC for cancelled/rebooked cruises is not going to be able to be used for gift cards or cashed out in the casino. What I have not seen mentioned, is donating any leftover to St Jude. I know I won't have this problem if we end up going on our cruise in May-wife has promised to buy some jewelry if we have any left.
  7. thanks, I just ordered the 12 pack from the link above. Looks like they will come in handy for other stuff as well.
  8. They look like they will open and close like a ziplock bag-is that correct?
  9. Maybe, but the impression I get from your posts is that it is more due to the way you ask (politely)-and not demanding. It never ceases to amaze me the people that simply don't get that..
  10. Who paid for the original cruise? Follow the money-whoever paid for the cancelled cruise (I'm pretty sure) would then get the OBC on their rescheduled cruise
  11. the point is that Carnival could and should have taken steps that would greatly reduce the chances of passengers being exposed- For me, the most egregious thing Carnival is doing is not eliminating the self service buffet and as reported not allowing space between seated parties while dining
  12. I believe OP (and husband) is not concerned with the trip cancellation part and most people shouldn't be. The important part is the medical coverage in case of injury or illness when out of the US-your regular health insurance will not likely cover this, especially if you need (want) to get back to the US mainland for treatment. The insurance purchased through the cruise line is not really enough (for my next cruise $10,000), so I will be looking to get a direct policy. In fact, here in NY, the Sate insurance regulator now longer allows the sale of some of the cruise line's policies to be sold to us and are recommending higher level coverage (including cancel for any reason) from authorized insurance carriers.
  13. I'm going to be in one of the Havana suites (not the corner) next year and I know we are above the rear of the stage. I'm not too concerned. From the dailies it looks like the louder shows would be over before 10:30PM
  14. My sincere apologies- I 100% did not have any intentions of slighting them. I really don't know how appropriate it is to to name names here
  15. my bad, I saw somewhere it was two laps (one ride) also back to Emerils, per a video posted on you tube-this couple had two apps, two entries and dessert, bill was $37 They also had a couple of Abita beers and a soda, no mention of the cost, but I would think the $37 did not include the drinks (also no mention if they are covered by Cheers or if the couple has Cheers)
  16. I would do the photo with no glasses anyway-in case they get lost you can take the glasses off for facial recognition software
  17. I'm just curious with the drink service in the casino- Was this in the smoking or non-smoking casino? At a table or at a slot machine?
  18. I saw another video (other than the one John Heald did) of the cabin I will be in (Havana Cabana Suite)-the table next to the bed looks very similar to ones I've had recently in some hotels- small, but able to fit my CPAP I just needed to rotate the machine-instead of tube pointing towards me and the bed, out towards the room-(portrait not landscape, if that makes sense)
  19. They really should just have a regular outlet by the bed-even for USB devices-(phones, tablets, etc) USB is slow charge compared to outlet
  20. I believe that the newer ships now allow Netflix..etc on the premium plan (that is they are not blocked) One question I have-do the TVs have USB inputs if I want to view content from my tablet or phone
  21. I would just download a few shows/movies before leaving home- even if the ship WIFI allows them to work there might be buffering
  22. been to Nassau on previous cruise- as said above-Atlantis-and they also have an aquarium in addition to the casino/water park if I'm on a cruise that stops there again, I will only go to the other casino Baja Mar to see it and to get a chip for my collections, then back on board
  23. When she didn't complete the hq they cancelled the reservation and started the refund process. She would have been allowed to board if she could pay the fare, but she couldn't due to the funds in her account because she only had a debit card.
  24. not really if you are a drinker-I'm on vacation and not driving on a sea day I could see myself having (depending on the pour-if one shot each: 2 bloody marys @ breakfast 2 or 3 frozen drinks by the pool 1 or 2 beers at lunch 2 or 3 more frozen drinks by the pool 1 or 2 Jack and diets before dinner 1 more Jack during dinner after dinner a few Baileys on the rocks...
