  1. This is true but regardless of which you method you bake please serve more than a cough drop sized portion of cranberry sauce with the meal. πŸ™‚
  2. While we're on the subject, I'd like to talk about Carnival shipboard security operations. Other than gangway duty I rarely see security patrolling the decks on Carnival ships. We've all seen the late night brawls in the dance clubs on youtube with security attempting to restore order. Ask yourself how often have you seen a security team member patrolling the hallways on the decks where the sleeping cabins are located monitoring the halls to see if someone left their cabin door open, to record the location of scooters and wheelchairs left in the corridors in violation of the safety rules, or use their nose to be on alert for a potential smoldering fire in a linen closet? I can't think of one time in 28 Carnival cruises that I've seen that happen. Not once. If prevention is worth a pound of cure the security department should focus more on prevention than putting out disturbances on an "as needed" basis. From the example of the OP security can't even do this right and respond to incident reports long after the disturbance is over.
  3. This photo was taken aboard the Carnival Spirit yesterday, Thanksgiving, from the main dining room dinner per an internet posting since removed. We've known for years Carnival can't serve fresh carved turkey in the MDR for the holiday and uses pressed turkey instead. We much prefer dressing up for family photos and then changing into comfortable clothes and heading to the lido where whole turkey is carved to order on Thanksgiving. I'm a realist and I get that pressed turkey will be served in the MDR but we love that Carnival offers us a choice and it is still one of the few mass market cruise lines that offers carved turkey on this special day in one of its venues. The whole turkey photo was taken last Thanksgiving by family on the Panorama.
  4. Those rocks really look like what they call biscuits!
  5. That piece of beef looks like the scraps we toss to our dogs. Good that the tomato soup is back and that you enjoyed it.
  6. Some guests who choose the lido are dressed nicely there. Families especially seem to come shortly after they have their portraits taken by the ship photographers. Parents with little ones look happy because dad can loosen his belt buckle and eat hearty and moms don't have that anxious look like one of their children will spill their milk. I hope it works out well for your family whatever they decide.
  7. Was it the "liberal" slathering of maple donkey sauce on the All American that sent you over the moon for it? πŸ™‚
  8. There are no try outs for the feuds in the late night dance club. πŸ˜‰ OP, we had fun at Deal or No Deal. Have fun whichever you choose.
  9. We have always brought our own preferred brand and variety of tea and none of the staff have ever said a word to us.
  10. OP, maybe you should have chosen a different title for this hot topic. I'm surprised more people aren't commenting TBH. My Carnival cruises have been a zoo lately and this new information being shared with guests must be a direct response to all the poor reviews they are receiving post cruise and guest complaints while on their ships. Of course the you tube videos of the fights on the dance floors only throw fuel on the fire of this HOT topic. Thanks for posting.
  11. I need to change my contact person and their phone number on my booking. Is this possible for me to do now after I am checked in and have my boarding pass? Thank you
  12. Life is full of risks. The best one can expect in this situation is a happy ending πŸ˜‰
  13. I have found this to be true most of the time, too. I did scratch my head when she wrote before leaving for Europe that she was concerned about the cleanliness of the bed linens on the ship. She asked for suggestions on what kind of laundry detergent to bring with her to Europe so she could wash all the bed linen. I'd like to know what she decided or if detergent was needed. The ship does seem to need lots of TLC that's for sure.
  14. Kookie was the kookiest πŸ™‚
  15. All I know is when my divorce became final I went from Blue to Diamond in 14 months πŸ˜‰
  16. When I hand these to bartenders and the guys at the pizza shop as an extra thank you I say: "No chocolate, no power." They get a kick out of my twist on an old crew saying.
  17. He looks better now. When we visited we gave him a comb over πŸ˜‰
  18. Fancy isn't an Alaskan trait but anything in salmon will make a statement. A sparkly top in salmon and a pair of Capri's is all it takes these days on most mass market cruise lines to be elegant.
  19. No kidding, you must have missed the other thread by the OP about smoking in the casino.
  20. Skittles would have been fun to find in basket, we never found a sweet treat in ours.
  21. Who remembers the complimentary bath gift baskets with razors, toothpaste, headache and flu medications and .50z bottles of Caress Bath Exfoliator with Shea Butter and Brown Sugar Beads? Those were the days.
