  1. We are on the same cruise and just received the information today about the change in itin... They have also changed boats from the Passion to the Vista. They say they are sister ships, so there shouldn't be much difference. We are disappointed also about the change, but at this point will go ahead with the trip and enjoy all the other stops. If it changes any more than we may need to discuss cancelling.
  2. We loved Kumar when we were on the BA in March. Very interesting to talk to and very funny! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  3. Wish we had the same experience on the Breakaway during spring break. This was probably because the main pool area was cold many of the days. Kids weren’t horrible, but they were running around jumping in and out of hot tubs and yelling. Again not horrible but not tranquil. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. Part of the issue with BA is the itinerary and time of year. I was in The Haven in mid March. When it’s cold (and it was about 4 of the 7 days) people are inside. It’s more crowded. I’ve sailed on the Spirit, Star and BA. suites every time. I loved the Haven, but understand it’s not for everyone. I didn’t love the huge boat compared to the Spirit and Star. But any day on a cruise boat is great. I understand people thinking too much space is spent on the Haven, but if people are willing to pay the price they will keep offering it. I don’t think Carnival has a space like that as an option so maybe that’s a better choose for some. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. One time in Alaska it was beautiful in one of the ports.(like near 80 degrees) We sat out on the front balcony. We wanted a “bucket of beer” back in the day when they had that but the bar was closed. Butler got that for us! Big tip. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. I saw something that they don’t offer those passes anymore for non Haven cruises. Might be different on different boats. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  7. I was in The Haven last week and I enjoyed sharing a hot tub with three or four 10 year olds splashing and running around. Oh and when we could lay out on the warm deck I enjoyed listening to about eight-ten 15 year olds talk non stop for a few hours. (Side note I am in education so when I am on a trip I want to be far away from kids). Yes you are only separated by a few feet and a partition but it appears to be a different world. Would do it next time in a heart beat. Oh yeah I had to drag two lounge chairs from the inside to enjoy the deck and the warm sun. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  8. Wow never heard of the Posh pass. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Just got done on a cruise in the Haven. Gave the butler 50 the first time she did something for us and 100 at the end. Loved the room steward gave him 40 +100 at the end. Favorite bartender about 100. Conc 100 (i did almost all my reservations on line). One person on the trip looks like she got a few hundred worth of $5s and gave those out as tips. Thought that was a great idea. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  10. I just got off the Breakaway. And did the Haven. There are many kids in The Haven. Not a ton but enough. If you want a truly adult only area The Vibe would be that. I would for sure do it next time especially if I were doing a cruise that had many warm days. (We only had 3 on the breakaway) Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. It looks really cool. It is an adult only area. The one on the breakaway had two hot tubs. There were many chairs and lounges. Also a bar. The only reason we didn’t do it was we were in The Haven. Next cruise I would probably join. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. I just got back. We went to the port around 10:30. I did talk to someone who go there around 8 or 9 (not as much traffic as expected) and was able to start the process. Sorry- no idea why- I thought it was always 3pm
  13. I have done two regular cruises and one Olivia. I enjoyed Olivia, but had a bad taste in my mouth from the marketing. I booked on the anniversary cruise that they billed big name entertainment and they all backed out. So I saw one show on the actual cruise. I am glad I did it at least once, but probably won't do it again, unless it is last minute and they have great deals.
  14. My first cruise 5 years ago was in that room! Loved the ship. Go out on the front patio- just make sure you hold the door on the way in and out! Enjoy!!!
  15. My partner and I have sailed NCL a few times- We can get a suite for the price of Olivia- nice perks! I like Olivia- but have a hard time spending that kind of money! I do agree on Silverseas- someday!!! Happy sailing!
