  1. OP, eat at ports of call. That’s the best way to get authentic food. The food you are eating on Carnival is not very adventurous- not very good any more overall. The “port of call” offering is usually terrible. It’s a real shame because the food used to be very good,
  2. We did the same thing, took a 15 day B2B to turn Platinum. We were Platinum on both cruises, even though we didn’t technically turn Platinum until the last day of the second cruise. I was shocked when the priority luggage tags showed up. It may be because I asked my TA to give Carnival the head’s up. So if you do book, advise your TA or PVP or call Carnival. It might work.
  3. www.marinetraffic.com shows 1.9 knots still, 6:19 am EDT, but also shows her almost to Cozumel, where she’s due at 8 am. I’d like to hear from someone on board. All I’ve hesrd is the person yesterday saying there were “electrical problems” for a few hours.
  4. I’m not onboard. Hence the question mark. Someone posted before that they had an electrical issue that was resolved. And yet... she’s dead in the water again. Check marinetraffic.com
  5. She’s been stopped, going 1 knot, stopped again- for hours. Then she sped up, seemed to be going full speed, and now she’s at 1.9 knots again. Middle of the Gulf, on the way to Cozumel.
  6. Leaving on Dream this morning. Found a great hotel, I’m amazed how terrific it is. Holiday Inn Superdome. It’s right in the middle of the action, lots to do and see. Beds are incredibly comfortable, room is huge. Staff is over the top friendly. $224 a night including all taxes and fees, and that includes 8 days of covered (safe) parking in a ramp. Quick walk to Bourbon street. No transportation to port but I hate being jammed in to a shuttle van anyway. Uber will be less than ten minutes to port. Very very welcome place to see after an 18 hour drive from Buffalo! Omg 😮 Just FYI. Wish me luck, I’m off with my 20 year old and his girlfriend. Close quarters in a cove balcony.
  7. Replying to you right now from my hotel bed :). Holiday Inn Superdome is fantastic, I just signed on to post about it. $224 a night, tax included, for beautiful room with incredible beds and 8 days parking. 25 minute walk to port, I get that that is a bit much but we are taking an Uber. Just FYI in case you’re driving in. The Uber to the port is under ten minutes.
  8. Please tell me they are going to list more excursions as it gets closer to the “270 days prior to sailing” window? The excursions listed now are all pretty bad. I think there is only one listed for St Petersburg and we are there two days.
  9. Do taxis in Stockholm accept credit cards or do I have to have local currency? Thanks in advance-
  10. I just finished a B2B, including the sailing the OP is talking about. It was great until it was just a bit too much. Had a great time but it was crowded, especially the second voyage. You'll have a great time in October.
  11. Well, you will. Signed- someone who has been at sea for two weeks and has probably gained 15
  12. Re: Serenity- I went up there once, it wasn't "packed" but all the loungers were taken. Never went back. I have a place where I like to go anyway (11 port side mid-aft). No USB ports in my cabin, a deck 9 interior, I'll try to find out about the wine price; don't know if we are going to an upcharge restaurant again. Today is St. Maarten: rainy!
  13. I'm sorry, I don't know anything about the shows. I don't go to them. I'm sure they're in the random Fun Times I have lying around the room but I've thrown most of them out so I'm not sure. Cucina free for lunch: yes. There doesn't appear to be a kid free hot tub but I could be wrong. However, despite children being allowed in the aft pool now, I haven't seen any there throughout both cruises. Gave up on comedy shows throughout both cruises. Late night deck parties have been awesome! I had bitter and blanc on the first cruise, haven't seen it yet on the 8 day but we've been in port a lot so we've eaten at the Lido and Cucina. Going to hit up the steakhouse again. One night we went down for ATD at 5:45. The line was God awful, went all the way around the atrium and down one hallway. No way were we getting in that line; even if it moved quickly once the doors were open the kitchen and wat staff would be slammed. So we went upstairs. Honestly the Lido has better food anyway, but obviously you don't get the dining room experience. We have had some great excursions! All Carnival this time. Catamaran sail and snorkel in Grand Turk, Big 3 in Amber Cove, and yesterday's ATV Rainforest Adventure in San Juan was awesome! Today another Cat sail and snorkel in St. Kitts.
  14. It's great. Using it now. The menu is about 75% accurate but the chat feature is great. I use it a whole lot more than I thought I would. Just to be able to toggle between devices on a shared wifi plan is terrific.
