  1. Thanks for sharing your cruise. I have never been on the Sunshine but would love to sail from Charleston.
  2. I sailed the Pride in November quite a few years ago. We were delayed boarding by 1 day. The ship was in a Nor Easter coming from Florida. The waves were so high that the boat actually was wet in the secret garden and it never opened for our sailing. It was rough when we hit the Atlantic and it was the first time I have ever taken Bonine, but I did it to be on the safe side. On the way back it was nice and warm near the NC coast and then it was night time and we didn't care. That being said, I think you will be fine on a 14 day cruise as long as a Nor Easter doesn't develop along the coast.
  3. Good info. I have received Casino rates never have taken them because of the rules but I just did one for Jan 2020 because the deposit was only $99 each. I can't wait to see if I get my shareholder credit because the rate was not very reduced.
  4. Great start to your review and a great start to your cruise, congratulations.
  5. Just speaking about this ship with a coworker. He was on the Magic and you were in dock together. This was my second Carnival ship cruise. I love your pictures and how you can see the ocean on this ship. Looking forward to more.
  6. I am so glad I found your review looking for port information. Thank you for taking the time to do the review and I really enjoyed it and your pictures.
  7. Very nice photos of Bergen. Did you follow a tour book or some other information when roaming the streets and churches?
  8. Thanks, I hope he is still there when I get on the ship. I love the piano bar.
  9. It may not be needed. I had a Havana Cabana cabin and we never used our patio area, we just went to the Havana area to meet or hang out.
  10. I found your review searching for Stavanger on the site. What fantastic review! Congratulations to your son and I am looking forward to more when you return.
  11. That's funny, I guess my mast burger was not hot and fresh off the grill on the Equinox.
  12. For me the specialty dining was a welcome relief from the large dining room. It really felt like we were not on a ship with 4,000 people.
  13. I can't wait to try HAL again since they have the jazz club and/or the Rolling Stone venue. I sailed on the Zaandam in 2005 and we loved it except late evenings were rather boring. We did love that the casino cleared out early but with the addition of these club I think we will enjoy it more.
  14. I forgot how much I disliked the burgers on Celebrity compared to Carnival's Guys Burger.
  15. I purchased at a specialty restaurant the first night. I was walking by and saw the sign and ask the hostess.
  16. That is a tough choice. I love HMC but I also did like the Horizon except the theater. You might ask what people think of the kids club on both ships if you kids will be using it.
  17. I have 1 Celebrity cruise and many Carnival. I guess it depends on what Celebrity ship. We were on the Equinox and had a very nice time. We were invited to the front of the ship to sail into San Juan. We just had a regular balcony room, no status. We kept ourselves entertained during the day. We even played games against the officers, bocce ball and volleyball. There was a lot of interaction with the officers. The shows were great and the martini bar was a show in itself. The passengers were not all old, my guess would be the majority were 30-60. I thought the food and service was very good. I rarely eat in dinner in the buffet but did on the this cruise and it was very good. There were even some kids. I didn't miss the slides since I don't use them.
  18. The Horizon had a specialty dining package when I was on-board the end of May. It was $60 for 3 restaurants to include 1 night at steak house.
  19. So much information on this thread, I would like to thank everyone who has contributed. I will be back with some questions once I figure out what is important to us on our first cruise/trip to Norway.
  20. True, I just had this happen. I decided to wait with them. I will never do this again. I had them get their arrival time right when it was available and they still got 12:30 to 1. I didn't like getting on the ship that late.
  21. Hi Tom and Cheryl, believe we met on the Breeze when it was the newest Carnival ship. Welcome back and looking forward to hearing about your cruises to the 75th milestone.
  22. Use a watch with ship time because phone will adjust to local time if you use it and won't go back to ship time when you return to ship.
  23. Sorry this has happened to so many cruisers during the summer holiday. I hope some had insurance that will cover the items Carnival is not. I guess a land vacation is another option for those that have to use a weeks vacation from work. I had a job where we bid on our vacation so I feel the pain, but a week off from work and a free cruise would get me through.
  24. My experience was that you need to get there early. We arrived at check in time 12:30 and had to park in an uncovered outside lot.
