  1. Unfortunately, the Seafood Shack is not on the Pride. I'll be on the Pride in 11/22 and is disappointed the Seafood Shack is not on the Pride. 🚤
  2. Traveller94, welcome to Carnival Cruise Board. Everyone has given great advise! Here are a few other things: The sail-a-way party on the Lido deck is fun. In the MDR, the waitstaff sings & dance between dinner & dessert. Some people like it, some don't. Pizza Pirate is open 24 hrs. for pizza & Caesar salads. You can also get soft serve ice cream 24 hrs. The 6 yr. old will enjoy Seuss at Sea - story time, parade and Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast (for a fee). There is also Camp Ocean for kids ages 2 - 11. Happy sails 🛳️
  3. True PhillyFan. I sailed on the Legend in 2004, then she became the Sunshine in 2013.
  4. I did the survey a few minutes ago. I hate wearing mask and having to practice social distancing, but I do. As much as I LOVE to cruise, mask & social distancing is not my idea of fun. With that said, I will not be cruising anytime soon. 😢
  5. Book as soon as you can in order to get the best cabins. Each person can bring a 12 pack of can sodas. You must be 21 to purchase the Cheers package. You can also use Carnival's FAQ for research. Happy Sails! 🛳️
  6. Air prices are ridiculous! As of today. SW r/t from Philly to Ft. Lauderdale for 2/28 returning 3/8 - $552.86! Other airlines are even higher! 😡
  7. $50 deposit sale, ends in 1 hr. 42 min. today!
  8. If your itinerary includes Martinique, to get off the ship, you must have a passport - even if it's a close loop cruise. U.S. Citizens do not require a Tourist Visa to enter Martinique. You will, however, need a valid passport to travel to Martinique.
  9. My next cruise, I must try the Thirsty Frog Beer. I read here somewhere, you can taste different beers - true?
  10. Carnival is going to Tortola on their 2/29/20. Antigua was original port, but Carnival & Antigua were not getting along.
  11. Well, things have changed in 8 years, as others will post. You can no longer bring bottled water onboard, unless it's in a can. Your Sail&Sign card is now left in your cabin's mailbox. If you want to purchase anything before your cabin is ready, you must use your boarding pass. When filling out your online check-in, you must select an arrival time, unless you purchase FTTF. Tablecloths are only used on "formal" night(s). These are a few things I can think of at the moment. Happy Sails.🛳️

  13. I believe when we went to Martinique in 2004, we needed a passport. That's when me & my mother got our first passports.
  14. PhillyFan, this is so true. Coincidentally, today on John Heald's FB page, he talked about surveys. This is the latter part: One of my now since retired CD colleagues would say, “I am not one to beg ” and then he would go down on his knees and with his arms open wide he would, while in the begging position, say, “Pleeeeease give us an excellent.” There was fierce competition between the ships to be number 1, to be in first place, that drove us on. Here in 2019 things are very different and review cars are sent on the interweb and not everyone gets sent a review and of course guests send their reviews here to me and post on other social media channels. But every ship wants to be the best but we also know that there are many factors that we have to take into consideration. Guests sailing from Galveston seem to be easier going with their ratings than say a ship sailing from New York.. There are weather factors and other things that will affect the overall rating but one thing is for sure, every ship wants to be the best So if you do get sent a review card online please take the time to complete it. Your feedback is truly valuable as is the praise you give the crew. Thank you for doing so.
  15. I agree. Bring cans of pineapple juice & coke - put in your fridge. Happy Sails. 🛳️
  16. Thanks for the explanation. Please keep us posted with your progress.
  17. Well said OC! You can't fill out the surveys "hot headed". Take a day or so, compose your thoughts and have at it - politely. My last cruise in 2017, I did NOT get a survey email from Carnival. Sooo, I went to Carnivals website and searched for one, found it and submitted. Fortunately, we had a great time. Everyone should fill out the surveys after their cruise. HOPEFULLY, the surveys will let the "suits" at Carnival know how they are being rated by their clientele.
  18. Sorry for your loss, prayers of comfort for your family. Good job Carnival!
  19. I also printed a list with everyone's cabin numbers on nautical or beach paper for my group. OP - have your group take a picture of the "Phone/Cabin" list for convenience. Happy Sails! 🛳️
  20. Also from Carnival's website: Note: Personal grooming devices such as hair dryers, flat irons, curling irons and shavers are allowed on board when used with proper caution. However, if such devices are determined to pose a hazard, they will be removed and returned the last day of the cruise prior to debark.
  21. LOL, glad I made your day! I've re-read your post. I don't know what "I would need payment before we go in either check or case form." mean. I think you need 10 people leaving from same airport for a group rate with SW. But, still call - you may be able work something out.
