  1. You will definitely get Platinum on the first week of the B2B. We just got back from the Magic and did a B2B, with my official Platinum level hit on the 2nd week. The first week I had Platinum status and it was on my boarding documents, etc.
  2. We love Celebrity, but found a lot to like with Carnival. We decided to start cruising more frequently, and Carnival has worked out well for us. We get a great value, and we really enjoy what Carnival offers. The included dining venues like Blue Iguana, Guy's Burgers, the Deli and Pizza really are hard to beat, and we enjoy the Carnival entertainment over Celebrity's. Overall, I think you will enjoy Carnival, we certainly have!
  3. We were booked on Horizon for next summer in a Havana interior cabin, but have since decided to cancel, as we felt it wasn't worth the premium with the additional cabins and now Grand Suite cabins being given access. Such a shame, as we were really looking forward to experiencing the lighter crowds in the Havana area. Shame on Carnival for getting greedy.

    She's back!

    Beautiful shot! Wish she stayed in Miami year around.
  5. Thank you! Just watched this last night and thought it was a great episode. Looking forward to having the Meriviglia in Miami!
  6. Bummer! Have a great cruise, and I'll be extending my cruise by following your review! Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  7. Rick, are you on the March 15th sailing? We just booked that one and are looking forward to our first cruise with Royal. Love your live reviews! Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  8. Any noise from the Alchemy Bar or the stage in Ocean Plaza? We booked 5301 next March, and it backs up against the Alchemy Bar. Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  9. Yep, if you booked under a reduced deposit rate, and the reduced deposit sale isn't currently available, they will make you pay the higher deposit amount to get the current lower rate. Had it happen to me before as well. Just be careful, if you pay the higher rate and it isn't refundable, you may end up with higher cancellation penalties then the current reduced deposit already paid. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  10. That makes me feel better! We are going on the Miracle in July, and I was worried when reading the OP's update. We were on the Vista in February, so we have lowered our expectations to adjust for coming from the 2nd newest ship in the fleet to going on one of the older ones. We also are in a 4K room, so looking forward to trying one of those.
  11. Thanks for the heads up! Looks like the price of the cruise in November for our category went up $150, with $150 OBC, so not a win for us. Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  12. Thank you Jamman54 for sharing your adventures with us! I really enjoyed your Magic/Elation review and see that this one is off to a great start. Looking forward to reading the rest!
  13. It's available for Horizon June 2019 and finally for the Miracle in November 2018. Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  14. Unfortunately we didn't get up there as we had our kids with us. From what I've heard it can be quite busy as well. Sent from my XT1635-02 using Forums mobile app
  15. Definitely go with the Havana cabin. Sea days on the main deck areas are very crowded on Vista (one of my few complaints with the ship). We are in the Havana area on Horizon next summer after our experience with Vista. Sent from my iPad using Forums
