  1. You have to submit the price match request at least 7 days prior to your cruise. I have received a couple matches. They give you OBC to be used on board, for 110% of the price difference. And as it has already been stated, everything has to match exactly.
  2. Thanks for the review! I have only cruise Carnival so far (10 cruises), but will be trying out NCL next year for the first time. I'm looking forward to experiencing something new.
  3. They do send out email notifications prior to the sailing date when there is a change to a scheduled port. Likely it ended up in your junk mail folder. Or you saw it and thought it was a spoof email. The body of the email doesn't contain the information; they put it in an attachment, and the email itself tends to look suspicious because it just contains an attachment. I have received at least a couple of these notifications. They come from donotreply@carnival.com and the subject is: CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES - IMPORTANT NOTICE. And again, it only contains an attachment; nothing in the body of the email itself.
  4. They do. They have prosciutto as well.
  5. You can see the maitre d' on embarkation day and see if he or she can help you, but there are no guarantees. Your Time Dining (what Carnival calls it), tends to be very popular. They try to make everyone happy, but there's only so much they can do if there is no room in YTD. You would probably have an easier time trying to switch to late dining, to be honest.
  6. Disaster?! Hardly. There are many people, myself included, that love this class of ship.
  7. How would this person be able to review both dining times on his cruise? He only had one or the other. Early or late. Not both. If he’s comparing experiences on two different cruises, then it’s not really comparable.
  8. I’m not sure which of the two June 2020 sailings out of Dover you are considering, but I’m booked on the 6/19 one to the Norwegian Fjords. So no, I don’t have any concerns. I sailed on the Carnival Horizon out of Barcelona to Italy and France and it was a wonderful cruise. While Carnival doesn’t typically do Europe, they do from time to time. So they do have experience and I don’t believe there is anything to worry about. And as far as the comment about Carnival not being to cater to the clientele these cruises attract, I disagree. We had a lot of Europeans on our Mediterranean cruise and the ones that we spoke to said that they love when Carnival does Europe because it’s a more fun cruise line than the ones that sail Europe regularly. I’m in my 40’s and my husband is in his 50’s. We love Carnival and appreciate their “Funships.”
  9. So what exactly was there in the description of the excursion that you didn’t receive? Not liking an excursion is not the same as “not standing behind their excursion” (i.e. not giving you what you paid for).
  10. Excursions for your cruise may not be posted yet, because it’s still early. They cannot post excursions until the contracts with the vendors are renewed. But once they are, they will start listing them. So if you are not seeing anything just yet, keep checking.
  11. You can do comparisons of cruise ships right on the Carnival website. Just go to Explore>Our Ships. You can pick up to three ships and then it will literally list everything each one has, so you can do a side-by-side comparison.
  12. The Legend in Endicott Arm Fjord on 5/2/17.
  13. When we arrive the day before it’s usually in the afternoon, so we go to the hotel and take a nap if we are tired, then we find a nice restaurant to have dinner. Then we generally just relax in our hotel room and I try to sleep that night, though it’s usually hard because I’m so excited!
