  1. To be honest, I thought that was what they were called. I usually cruise CCL and usually book everything myself so don't have anyone I always call, and maybe that is where I am getting it from. With all the cancellations for our British Isles cruise - and not getting refunded very quickly I decided I better get someone consistant. We were talking about how lots of people were ready to start cruising again and she just started talking about her morning meeting. I don't think she really gave me any company secrets - just that they were really trying to get things up and running in November. Good luck for your cruise! Keeping my fingers crossed for both of us 🙂
  2. I spent some quality time on the phone this evening with my pvp and she said that she was involved in a meeting Tuesday morning that sounded like the lines were definitely trying to get the cruises back by November. I was trying to get all my credits sorted out from both of my cancelled British Isles cruises so when I say I was on the phone along time - I really was. Of course I am hopeful since I have a cruise booked for November 29th - so I quess I am like so many others - ready to get back to sailing 🙂
  3. my final payment was due on August 31st, so I waited until 7pm on Monday night and when I went to pay it, my reservation was gone. I called Carnival and they said I did not pay my final payment so they cancelled. I got extremely pissed and one person said it was a computer glitch and that my payment was due by 11am? What? usually they give you till 11pm and that they could not re-instate my reservation because the sailing was full. I know I should have taken it for a sign but I called today and they re-instated my reservation only if I paid the full amount. This was a rebooking and when they emailed me the 300 room credit I had was not on the reservation so I had to argue about that too. If the cruise is cancelled - the Legend out of Tampa - week after Thanksgiving - we will just transfer the payment to our cruise next September. Like most people I am ready for some ordinary.
  4. lol My DH loves that croc visor ( to match his croc shoes I quess)
  5. We are sailing at the end of September - thanks for the review - we have sailed the Vista and I have booked the same inside room in the Havana area to ensure that we don't feel crowded around the pool - first cruise out of California.
  6. Yes this was in March 2016 - I think it might have been the first year that they had Journeys cruises but I could be wrong. We got on the ship in Puerto Rico and debarked in New Orleans. It was a southern itinerary. We really enjoyed this cruise since I had just finished 15 months of schooling.
  7. We have done the Havana area on the Vista - not in a cabana - inside. 😉 I booked it for the havana pool area. We knew the music would be playing around till 11 and we were ok with this. We loved the Havana area and actually were pleased with being so close to the Ocean's plaza, and coffee shop area. Although an inside was more than a regular balcony, I was ok with the price since we truly enjoyed the use of the pool and nice seating area. I am not a fan of huge ships so this was one way to battle the crowds. To original poster - sorry you had a bad experience.
  8. we did a 10 day Journey cruise on the dream out of Puerto Rico - it was a second leg with many of the passengers getting on in New Orleans for the first leg. I will tell you I booked it for the longer cruise length and the amount of sea days. We loved the length of it. We also did a 15 day Hawaii - pre "Journey" title and it was amazing - this was on the legend. I loved it - DH said he was ready to get off ship by the end but not me...This May we will be trying another cruiseline for a 14 day British Isles - we would have preferred staying with Carnival they didn't have the itinerary that we wanted. If you get the opportunity to try a Journey's - I highly recommend it!
  9. It is the only room I would book on a vista class ship - we did Vista a couple of years ago - have PanoHrama booked for next September. I do an inside and although I could probably get a regular balcony for the price - having less people at the havana area, the pool and hot tub makes it well worth it to us. We could hear the music at night but it never bothered us. Also we are a fans of Ocean's Plaza so it is a quick hop skip and a jump to there and the coffee shop and Alchemy bar 🙂
  10. will also be on this cruise - and we have been on her before and my DH has used a cpap for years. We usually put a extention cord in his cpap case and they never bother it - you can call ahead and get one supplied they are they big industrial orange cords. I don't know if they would confiscate an extention cord in your suitcase - I have seen them while picking up liquor at the end of the trip. Hope this helps
  11. My favorite class by far - hubs prefers the bigger ones - the only one I haven't sailed from is the Pride. Miracle, Legend and Spirit at least twice.
  12. honestly, after seeing a picture of the lanyard - I don't think it's that bad. This coming from someone who's husband loved the croc visor😎😀
  13. loved the cross body bag/tervis tumblers and bluetooth speakers. truly disliked and complained about the crock' sunvisor - but my husband loves it lol - to each his own. 😎
  14. We did this cruise a few years back in September from Vancouver on the Miracle - we absolutely loved it - and was pretty surprised how cool it was and how choppy the water was for the first three days. Our cruise critic group was over 100 people! Thank you for taking me down memory lane - I am really loving your review as always :)!
  15. We will be in London next year for four or five days pre cruise - Any suggestions of hotels very close to tube and reasonably priced would be very appreciated. We plan on taking the bullet train for one day in Paris. Figure we want to see as many as the major sites and will probably do hop on hop off for at least one day to get lay of the land. We usually stay at hotels like the Hampton Inn and so looking for something like that in London. Thanks April
