  1. It wasn’t the same food as what they serve in Cucina, which is the point I was trying to make. Some people think it’s the same menu, just a lunch version, but it’s not. What they serve for lunch is the same as what Pasta Bella on the Dream serves: you choose your pasta, sauce, add-one’s like meat and veggies. And they have a lasagna option, if I remember correctly. But the menu at Cucina is different. And very delicious, if I might add. Well worth the $15 per person!
  2. I’ve been on the Horizon and the Vista and never felt like it was crowded on either. The ships are so huge and there’s so much to do that people disperse to many different areas. I love the ships, actually.
  3. To be honest, unless you have kids or are a really huge fan of Dr Seuss, it’s not really worth it because the menu is no different than what you can get for breakfast in the MDR any other day. They just add green dye to the eggs, red food coloring to pancakes (to make the hat), etc. But, it’s only $5 per person, so not bad to just try once, for the experience.
  4. A common misconception that people have is that Jiji’s and Cucina are free at lunch time. They are not. Rather, Mongolian Wok and Pasta Bella are served out of Jiji’s and Cucina, respectively, at lunch time. It’s not the same food. Not even close. But yes, this arrangement is included on the Panorama.
  5. The Fascination is actually a great ship. And honestly, the ship doesn’t matter anyway on that itinerary. The islands are amazing, and you only have one sea day. Trust me, book it!
  6. I sailed in a cove while in the Gulf when Hurricane Patricia was hitting Mexico (very rough seas), and I sailed in another cove right through a tropical storm (the name escapes me), and neither times did our storm door get shut. I can't imagine how rough the seas have to be for them to close them.
  7. Haha, yup! I love that I no longer have to purchase it. I have since my very first cruise.
  8. Lol, I totally get it. My next cruise will be my Platinum cruise so as soon as I got home from my last one, I printed out my documents just so that I could see "Priority" on them. 😄
  9. Ah, so if it’s a matter of the ship itself needing to be outfitted with equipment to allow for it, I wonder if that means there’s a possibility that Carnival could enlist some other kind of vessel to meet up with the Carnival ships that could launch fireworks. That would be really cool!
  10. Booked the 7-day Mexican Riviera sailing on the Panorama. I’m running out of itineraries that we haven’t done, and this is one of them. Other than Hawaii, but I just can do two weeks that close to doing to weeks for a Panama Canal Cruise in late Nov/early Dec of 2021.
  11. They can’t do fireworks at sea. Only Disney can. Something about they trademarked the process that allows them to be able to do it. I don’t know the full details, but maybe someone can chime in and share.
  12. They give you a meeting place onboard the ship, and once you arrive there, someone escorts you onto the water shuttle. It’s really easy. Incidentally, they are not called tenders anymore. They are water shuttles.
  13. I haven’t been having any problems. I would suggest clearing your cookies. Or trying another browser.
  14. From what I have seen, she seems to just lock random posts every once in awhile. With no rhyme or reason behind it.
  15. I think all of the specialty restaurants are well worth the money, but if you only do one I suggest Jiji’s Asian Kitchen. It’s absolutely delicious! My second choice would be the Steakhouse. But again, I love them all.
