  1. Don’t know about that, but I have the offer as well.
  2. A couple of years ago I saw a couple of $25 carnival gift cards at my Lowe’s so decided to get them. The cashier tried everything she knew how to do to activate them, but just kept saying invalid. I think that was right after carnival stopped with the smaller denominations. So if you do see any still around, they most likely won’t be able to be loaded.
  3. If you’re on the hub app, you have to log out from it. After you’ve done that you can enter your new date by using just the date numbers, no need to log in.
  4. I’ve been on 32 Carnival cruises and never get emails. I’m the one who does all the planning, making the reservations, etc. my husband is the one who gets all the emails, usually 3 a week. He just hands his phone to me! I always check the box to send me emails, but never get anything. Guess they know they have my number, lol
  5. I didn’t see it anywhere either. Probably a lot will be like this, but maybe will get better. Someone must have jumped the gun in posting on the website.
  6. I submitted my form for the March 1 cancellation on January 6, and received my refund in about 8 days.
  7. I received my March 1 cancellation in about 8 days, and so did my grandson.
  8. I think you’ll have to call Carnival about that. The deck plans only show if the rooms themselves connect. Sometimes it depends on how the balconies are set up.
  9. No, only when playing in the casino. Of course you can play till you get a drink and cash out and go to wherever you want to go. There are some drink packages where you can get drinks anyplace on the ship. I’ve found whether you’re paying for drinks or they’re free, the service is slow in the casino because they only have 1 or 2 waiters usually.
  10. I didn’t have any gift cards on my cruises this time, but I did get my credit card refunds within 2 weeks of cancellations. My son received a few gift card refunds in separate mailings of 1 card each time, then received his credit card refund the next day. Glad it didn’t take very long this time!
  11. Should have gotten my Diamond on the January cruise that was just cancelled, so disappointing. Maybe soon.
  12. My vote is for Magic! Don’t know much about Norwegian, but if I were paying for the cruise, I would most definitely take a Magic balcony room vs an interior any day. You will be hooked on balcony rooms forever. There’s plenty to do on Magic. That size is plenty big enough for me. Don’t think you would regret it.
  13. The credit won’t be given to you until you book another cruise or apply to one you already have booked. My advice is to call Carnival and have a representative do everything for you. That way you’ll know exactly what you have for on board credits and things like that. So much easier and much less worry. I see you’re in Lake Charles, sure hope things are on the road to recovery after all the storms !
  14. You are correct, anything anyone posts here is pure speculation. John Heald’s FB page or Carnival directly will let us know as they develop. Fingers crossed that we will be sailing soon.
  15. We’ve been to Bermuda twice, they sail from Port Canaveral every now and again, so not a regular cruise. Both times the ships casino opened at 9 pm.
  16. They will refund to each method of payment.
  17. Our only scheduled cruise left is March 1st on Liberty. Not looking too promising for that to happen, but sure hope so. Going with grandson and his wife for their anniversary, it’s been booked for a year. He got a fantastic rate when we booked, but I’m sure that’s going to be gone when we rebook. Haven’t rebooked the 2 January cruises we had on Breeze yet, still trying to figure out what they’re going to do about the “7 days or less” part of the CDC order. Really getting frustrated with all these cancellations. CDC probably isn’t going to be happy till they put the cruise industry out of business!
  18. I had 2 January cruises, both out of Port Canaveral and yes, they are cancelled. Previous cancellations had excepted Port Canaveral, Miami and Galveston I think, but this round was for all US ports. The first sentence of the notice says all US ports. Talked to my PVP last evening and all January and a few February are cancelled.
  19. If Carnival cancels the cruise, you lose any obc they’ve given you for previously cancelled cruises. The obc doesn’t carry over.
  20. What I find funny about this offer is my whole family who all have cruised with Carnival didn’t receive the offer EXCEPT our granddaughter and her husband who don’t drink at all! No rhyme or reason.
  21. From what I’m reading, they are trying to change the date from a cancelled cruise to a new one. In that case, you have to manually change the date as I described above. Even though a cruise has been cancelled, the countdown will continue until you change it. It isn’t an automatic process. Even when you are putting in a brand new cruise, not a changed one, you have to enter the date.
  22. If you’re talking about the Countdown clock on the Hub app, all you do to change it is to tap on the date and the year, month and day comes up. Just scroll thru and choose your date.
  23. See the thread “Carnival changed my check-in date”.Apparently there have been some changes to the on line check in .
  24. My DH uses a mobility scooter, and we always put it in the cabin (always have balcony). The above poster is correct, take the arms off and it will go straight in with very little room to spare. His scooter is 21-1/2” wide. Another thing you can do is remove the rear wheels if the scooter type allows this. Our bed configuration as a king allows just enough room to maneuver the scooter in the space between the lamp table and the sofa. You can also push the coffee table up against the sofa and put it there. Best advice tho, is to turn it around after you get it in the room. To the poster who said to get an accessible cabin, that is almost impossible, they go very quickly. Also the accessible cabins (I think there are only 4?) are usually at the very front of the ship. Never fails when you come out of the cabin into the hallway, there’s a cart or two along the hallway, and those hallways seem to be just a little narrower. Whatever you decide, good luck!
