    Earliest check-in time for Horizon

    Thanks! I am guessing 12:30 may be the earliest too.
  2. Hi. Just curious what the earliest check-in time normally is for the Horizon out of Miami? I know we definitely didn’t get the earliest check-in time, but we got 12:30 which I am hoping is fairly good. I can’t seem to snag FTTF. Thanks!

    Price protection & onboard credit

    That's what I figured. Thank you for the quick replies!
  4. Hi. There is now a lower rate for the cruise we booked under Carnival's Early Saver rate, but no onboard credit being offered with this current promotion. We currently have a $50 onboard credit we got with a previous promotion. My question is, if we call to get a price adjustment to this new, lower rate, will we lose our $50 onboard credit? Thanks in advance!

    Is Celebrity right for us?

    I would for sure stick with RCCL. I have a 7 year old son and we have been on Celebrity once a few years ago (without my son). My husband and I both agreed that it is not the best line for children. It is a bit more "stuffy" (although I wouldn't say fancier), meaning they don't have a lot of the "fun" type of activities RCCL or Carnival would have. For example, all "night-life" seemed to almost shut down around 10 pm. The one club type place they had, had maybe 20 people in it tops dancing at night. We did not see NEAR as many kids as we are used to seeing on RCCL and saw very few kids even in the main dining room. We are in our 30's and although we saw a couples around our age, the clientele on Celebrity seemed to be over 50. (We didn't choose Celebrity, my MIL did, and we knew most of this going in.) Even traveling without kids I would hands-down prefer RCCL to Celebrity. Hope this helps.

    Place saver sign for Lido restaurant

    I really don't see what the difference is in leaving a sweater, book, bag, cups/silverware on the table to claim it before getting food versus a "reserved" sign except that the reserved sign is a little more "in your face." Either way someone is reserving the table prior to getting food. It seems many take offense to this sign so maybe a sweater or book would be better though? I've been on numerous cruises and have always placed my sweater on the top of the table prior to us getting food at the buffet. I've never once encountered an issue. I often do this at places where it gets pretty busy at lunch time back at home such a Chick-fil-A. Again, no one has ever said anything and it's never been an issue. If everyone wants to do this before placing their order there, than more power to them. Just my opinion...

    Carnival Quest Game

    They do this on almost all RCCL sailings. I was actually the team captain for our team the last time we cruised. They may ask for things like a man wearing a bra, a man dressed as a woman, etc. It was a lot of fun. They tend get a fairly big audience at their Quests and we had four teams I think. I’m hoping they play it on our Horizon sailing.

    15 Drink Limit

    I can't imagine ever in a million years being able to consume 15 alcoholic beverages in a day so the limit would never affect me. Just the amount of calories in 15 drinks makes me want to cringe. How in the world can people maintain a healthy weight (not to mention liver) drinking like that?? Lol. I would personally rather eat my calories versus drink them, but to each their own. : )

    New to Carnival - Soda Package Question

    That's crazy it's all from cans! Is there anywhere on Carnival (specifically the Horizon) where you can get soda in a fountain drink form with the soda package? I MUCH prefer fountain drink Diet Coke to it from a can. We are more familiar with Royal Caribbean and there are numerous venues on their ships where it's a fountain drink. (Our last ship didn't have the Coke Freestyle machines on RCCL, but the bars had it in fountain form.) I guess when someone orders something like a rum and Coke on Carnival, the Coke comes from a can? That's so weird to me...
  10. Just curious how many of you get these amazing deals. Do you have to book last minute to find rates like many of you mentioned and is it usually for interior cabins? Thanks!

    Chocolate Melting cake

    We have a cruise planned for next year, but it's been years since I sailed on Carnival. Does the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake have a dark chocolate flavor? (I like chocolate, but despise the flavor of dark chocolate.) Thanks!

    Carnival horizon fun times

    I'd love to see Fun Times from anyone that's done the 8 day Horizon Southern Caribbean cruise. Thanks!

    Allstate drive wise cards too!

    Thank you for much for this info. We downloaded the app and have already earned a ton of points. I had no idea about this until this morning since I haven't cruised on Carnival since college... :)

    Allstate drive wise cards too!

    I'm sorry if this has already been answered. I tried to briefly go back and look on this thread, but can you this Carnival Allstate giftcards for onboard credit once you pay off your actual cruise balance? If so, how does that work exactly? Can you get the gift cards applied for onboard credit prior to sailing or would you have to wait and go to guest services once aboard the ship? Thank you.
  15. Hi. Has anyone done this tour and if so, what beach do they go to and do you recommend it? There is only one (good) review of this tour on Carnival's site. The description of the tour does not mention what beach they stop at so I am trying to get some better info. on that. Thanks!
