  1. Carnival Cruise Line will begin serving PepsiCo products in January 2020👿 Tried this several years ago and due to guests outcry switched back to Coca Cola. p.s. Royal Caribbean still with Coca Cola😂
  2. FYI to all smokers DO NOT toss your cigarette butts overboard for 2 very important reasons reasons. #1 it can be blown back onto a balcony and cause a fire. Happened on a Princess ship several years ago where a beach towel lying on a chair caught fire. #2 as a diver I can tell you that cigarette filters expand and blossom out when wet. Sea turtles love jelly fish and have been known to grab these for "lunch". Also it is considered littering by the cruise lines. http://seasickfish.com/news/cigarettes-filters-and-tobacco/
  3. The bottles of water are great especially for my travel buddy, I give her mine as I use the tap water. As a former travel agent I know the desalination systems work great, never had a problem.
  4. When I asked if they could ring me out there they said no. Told CCL more POS would help along with more sales associates for the souvenir and liquor store. I did buy my "Inch of Gold" from the jewelry store but that is my gift to myself every cruise.
  5. They have some amazing choices of fresh baked cookies and I guarantee they will be a better choice.
  6. Sailed Carnival Magic 4/14/18 and found they had a very small selection of their logo items. One whole shop is now an expensive jewelry store with multiple sales people to the detriment of the other shop across the way that offers the cruise souvenirs; apparel and liquor. Over the course of the week I went there 3 times and each time there was a line almost out the door with only 1 or 2 sales associates in attendance. Every time I went across the deck and had them pull sales associates from the jewelry store where they had 5 to 6 associates and 1 or 2 customers. As a former travel agent I have always found it advantageous to handle things while on-board.
  7. After multiple cruises I do believe it is time for the "VIFP" club to change some of their perks. Last cruise on the "Carnival Magic" 4/14/18 we got once again the in-stateroom perk of chocolate covered strawberries. The berries were mushy, my traveling companion doesn't like strawberries and our 2 friends in the next stateroom wouldn't touch them either. When sitting them outside our door for pick-up a passing room steward said they toss more of them than are eaten, what a waste. Emailed CCL about changing them out for say cookies or something their chefs could make, would definitely be more YUMMY!!!!
  8. Remember on Carnival its only 1 bottle per person. Must be in carry-on not a checked bag. See below: Bringing Liquor and Beverages Onboard - Embarkation Guests are prohibited from bringing water, sodas and other non-alcoholic beverages on board that are packaged in glass or plastic bottles. A small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages (i.e., sparkling water, sodas, energy drinks, juice, and milk) packaged in cansor cartons may be brought on board on embarkation day and must be in the guest's carry-on luggage. A small quantity is considered a maximum of 12 sealed, unopened cans/cartons of 12 ounces each or less per person. Guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages on board with the following exception - At the beginning of the cruise during embarkation day only, guests (21 years of age and older) may bring one 750 ml bottle of sealed/unopened wine or champagne per person in their carry-on luggage. All liquor, beer, other forms of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages outside of this exception are strictly prohibited in both carry-on and checked luggage and such items will be confiscated and discarded and no compensation will be provided.
  9. When I have a question about my Carnival card I always call Barclays directly. Sometimes the people at Carnival are a little vague or unaware of all the perks and how they work. Barclays is a safer bet.
  10. Yes Carnival does have Gluten -free. Click on link below: https://www.carnival.com/about-carnival/special-needs/dietary-needs.aspx
  11. I have cruised yearly since 1980 and yes there are "bad actors" on all cruise lines. However as most hide their issues with Carnival not being one of them. I have been on Carnival over 25 times and have only had one sailing where people were escorted off the ship. Also due to maritime laws you also get a $250 fee for leaving a ship in the middle of a cruise. The videos don't show the ramification of such behaviors. Like being escorted off the ship at the next port and finding your own way home or being met by law enforcement. Carnival has very little tolerance for bad behavior. There is a "code of conduct" in your ticket contract which few guest read. Click on the link below. https://www.carnival.com/about-carnival/legal-notice/ticket-contract.aspx
  12. Can not use your "Sail & Sign" card off the ship.
  13. Most islands Tourism and Visitors Bureaus will tell you what cruise lines visit.
  14. Cannot switch from set dining (early/late) to Your Time. Click this link https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3439/kw/dining%20timesor help:
