  1. My intention was not to whine about the restrictions...I have had covid...and was recently exposed again by someone who was vaccinated (but didn't get it a second time)....My natural immunity worked...All I was asking was if there was options because I don't believe we will be able to cruise...and I didn't want to loose a bunch of money that they have had for years.....
  2. It's not as if I booked a vacation during covid...I originally booked this and paid in 2018....long before covid hit...I just don't want to have to loose my money while they are making $$$ on the interest for the $$$ that they will have for 3 years...
  3. 12 of us booked starting 3 years ago for our cruise...one got cancelled then we rolled it over to another. We are supposed to cruise in March...but we are not vaccinated....Is there a certain insurance that I should get so that we can just cancel and get most of our $$$ back. Carnival has had our $$$ for almost 3 years...and we just decided to do something else! Thanks a bunch!
  4. I have been looking at excursions for our trip next year...and they are so much more expensive than ones we have looked at in the past. I have never taken a shore sponsored excursion before...I like doing what I want at port and not being rushed....I hope it returns to this soon after cruising starts!
  5. We were sitting outside the airport ordering an uber last month when a taxi driver asked if we wanted a ride...Hubby asked how much to Holiday Inn POM...the driver said $60....we said no thanks...My friend who lives in Miami said that taxi drivers like to screw tourists...I had never used an uber before that trip coming from a small town...but we had a great experience with them...
  6. What do you all think...Will we be able to do excursions on our own by next year...or forced to do Carnival ones?
  7. I'm sorry...I meant from the airport to the Holiday Inn....My bad.
  8. I was wondering if there was a place close to port in Tampa to buy diapers, wipes etc so that we don't have to pack them? Thanks in advance!
  9. We stayed at the Holiday Inn recently which is just down the road from Intercontinental...right across from Bayside Market. The difference in price between a taxi and uber was HUGE...Uber was $16 a taxi was $60....
  10. We just stayed here a couple weeks ago (for the second time). The location is great and there is a lot to do/eat at Bayside Market across the street. The beds are very comfy...the only downside of this past trip was the traffic on Biscayne BLVD the night we stayed...We heard all of it...especially the motorcycles revving their engines at al hours of the night....I still loved the hotel...and we were given an upgrade to a suite upon arrival which was nice.....
  11. I know that they have the groups starting at 2 years old...but does Carnival do any type of babysitting service for infants? Thanks in advance
  12. Thank you all...I will check these out.
  13. Is this a tour that is doable without being on an excursion? How far is it from the cruise port? Can you tell me what is involved in the tour? A lot of walking, etc? Thanks in advance...
  14. Which hotel did you book in Tampa and why? I am looking for something that has a shuttle, pool, and wifi. Close to places to eat (within walking distance) reasonable priced (not in the slums...but not in the ritzy area. I have never been to Tampa...so don't know the area at all. Thanks in advance!
  15. Thank you...We haven't made a definite decision...but this one is tops on our list I think...
  16. Our cruise on the magic just got cancelled....looking at possibly booking the Pride out of Tampa...Whats the good, bad and ugly about this ship...would love to hear people personal opinions...even get links to reviews/pictures if possible... Thanks in advance...You all are wonderful!
  17. I'm booked on the Magic in January...They aren't taking any more reservations because it is booked...
  18. Thank you very much for all the info. I really appreciate it!
  19. Thank you...but I just wanted an answer...not to get into an argument about calling in. Have a great afternoon!
  20. In normal times I would call...but I know that they are very busy with calls because of covid....I just thought I could get a quick answer by seasoned cruisers who have been on the ship...
  21. I haven't called Carnival directly, because I figured they are busy enough with other more important calls...I just figured I would ask here where tons of people have sailed this ship. The Carnival website has the gift cards...I just wanted to make sure the magic had the shop before I spent the $$$.. Thank you all for your help.
