  1. I chose Deck 7 for two reasons: the first is that before I book a cabin on any ship I do a survey of the best and worst cabins and cabin locations on the particular ship I'm sailing on. I believe the website I go to is called Deckplans.com or something relative to that name. It provides you with information from past cruisers as to which decks and cabins are most desirable and why and the same for those that are undesirable. I've found the information invaluable. It will let you know if a cabin you are considering is around a busy crew service area, underneath or over an entertainment venue, n
  2. We are going out of NOLA on the Valor in early December and we have an aft-wrap booked. It is a Premium Vista Balcony. I booked about a year and a half out and secured a Deck 7, starboard side cabin. The total cost of our trip for two which also includes paid gratuities and travel insurance came to approximately $1,800.00. I also booked the cabin under the Early Saver fare to get the best price deal. Getting this cabin was a miracle because I too had heard that aft-wraps are the hardest to secure because they are so limited in number. When I saw they had one available I jumped at the chance to
  3. Just the privilege of being able to unplug for a week to be pampered and waited on by others is a blessing. Enjoying free time to do WHATEVER WHENEVER along with being with my sweetie or family who also are free to do the same. Getting up early or sleeping late; never-ending food; people working hard to see that I am happy and cared for while enjoying new locations, people, entertainment and experiences all in one place. The ability to tailor one's vacation to their specific needs isn't an option with many other forms of travel the same way it is with and on a cruise. Enjoy!
  4. This will be us in 49 more days and I cannot wait. Amazing pics!
  5. OP...My sweetie recently developed pulmonary problems and is on oxygen now as well. He has a big tank at home and a portable one for travel of which will be his first time using on a cruise. You should be fine with a portable tank. I contacted Carnival and spoke with them to confirm all the very in-depth information they already provide on their website. It is very clear and specific as to the process and how they can assist in making the experience one that won't interfere with your trip but takes into account concerns about traveling with any type of health and/or mobility issue
  6. 59 days until we are sitting on our aft-wrap toasting to sailaway!
  7. We have an aft-wrap on our upcoming Valor cruise in December and the only reason I went for it was because it was an aft-wrap which will give us the option to either be out in not too hot weather but even if it is hot we have the overhang on the side to protect us and still allow enjoyment of the balcony. I will try to remember to comeback and report what it was like.
  8. I made reservations for our upcoming trip on the Valor and yes, I reserved and had to pay up front. Since this is our first time doing the steakhouse and it is only for 2 of us I got that cost out of the way.
  9. On our next cruise we are going to try: Steakhouse Chef's Table Serenity Hot Tubs on a Port Day Somewhere other than Embarkation lunch at the Lido Buffet
  10. I'd like to know as well for our sailing in December.
  11. I just completed check-in for our cruise on the Valor in December. We are also on Deck 7 aft and the color on our luggage tag was green. I don't have to officially print them out now but that is what they looked like on my download screen. Hope this helps. Have a great cruise.
  12. Not afraid in the slightest. Leaving in a week for our 1st cruise of the year with another right after Thanksgiving. 😁
  13. Thank you! I was able to get my flights booked for Nov-Dec and not a moment too soon (Wanna Get Away - Yay!). Was able to give the heads up to my co-worker as well so she thanks CC as well. Safe and happy travels everyone.
  14. Great tips! To piggyback off of all the great info you provided I'll add bring good comfortable walking shoes, a multi socket outlet for your phones, camera, etc. as usually there is only one maybe two in the cabin, patience (your on vacation) and open mind and a smile. Some of the BEST people in the world can be found while cruising. Have an amazing time!
  15. Question for Saint Greg - do you have any information on French Market Inn? I was able to secure a room at a great price (by comparison to other FQ hotels) but would like your input as you are so well informed and forthcoming in NOLA hotel goings on. Appreciate the help. Thank you.
