  1. I think they mean the ramps serve as both an exit and entrance, and crew will have to hold up oncoming traffic so the scooter rider may proceed.
  2. Unless things have changed, a bottle of water (hold over from red level), a pin and a free drink on the last night of the cruise.
  3. Oddly enough, I never thought about when I bought vanilla in Cozumel last cruise. The olive salad is not something that is commonly available in my area and the weight means shipping it home separately isn't practical.
  4. <<<Furiously taking style notes for a similar report in three weeks for Valor. 😄
  5. We'll have several days in New Orleans before our cruise but will be flying out very shortly after docking. On my to-do list is picking up some grocery items such as olive salad, but I began to wonder if Carnival treats (sealed) glass jars as bottles and I risk having them dumped?
  6. Bingo. Doors are slated for removal during drydock in Feb-March 2020.
  7. Battery policy is up to the whims of the gate staff IMO. I've used both gel cells and AGM (Lets leave lithium out of this for the moment.) and generally I get to leave the gel cells in place, while AGM is a crapshoot. Some gate staff consider them spill proof and ok, but I've had a few times where they've disconnected the batteries and put them in a separate spill-proof box. I've come to rely on notifying shuttle companies in advance to provide a lift, although on a couple of occasions the driver simply muscled it into the shuttle bus. On a previous trip I tried to use a service called 'Uber Assist' which is supposed to be for special needs transit and the round-trip was bad both ways...with trouble getting into the full-size van from the airport (driver did lift my full-size scooter in the rear) and the return trip was a little old lady with an SUV who wouldn't even touch the scooter, leaving it to my wife. (Who luckily still has the muscles for such things.)
  8. A trans-pacific B2B - West coast to Hawaii, Hawaii to Oz and everything in between.
  9. Having been a long-time user of my own local ADA service (Too long if you ask me. 😀 ), I'm aware of most of the idiosyncrasies of ADA transit. The only question is both distance from the port and the drop off/pick up return. Either way has to be better than the regular Maui bus though? (The regular bus stop appears to be a good half-mile from the highway entrance of the tropical plantation, let alone getting up to it.) I haven't totally ruled out Robert's on this one yet though. My wife LOVES shopping 😵 and I could see her spending a good hour or more in the shop, but taking a Maui highlights tour and seeing other stuff does have its appeal as well.
  10. Poster(s) above said they were notified that their handicap rooms may change in the near future. Until the update in Feb, these cabins have doors that open facing the sides of lifeboats, or if lucky, between lifeboats. There are bars across the opening to discourage stepping out. Carnival has been changing these to full-height windows incapable of being opened as each of the Spirit class go through dry-dock.
