  1. Really doesn't matter if numbers are rising or flattening the curve. Cruise lines listen to CDC and if they deem it unsafe no ship leaves port. Cruise lines don't want to have to quarantine for 14 days.
  2. Carnival has remove from there website cruises in October because they are going to sail at a lower capacity. I was booked on Horizon Oct 3rd but hastily canceled but then reconsidered I jump the gun so hour later called carnival to have cruise reinstated. Carnival no way would even though ship is not full they stated they will be sailing at lower capacity. That's if they sail at all depends on CDC. Because how can u social distance in diningroom or theater's if at full capacity? And they don't want one person to have Covid-19 because then no port will allow them to dock for 14 days.

  3. I think carnival's customer service is terrible. Called to book another cruise very few choices the weeks that husband has vacation. So decided on 1 October 3 on Horizon I had interior Havana cabin on Mardi Gras. They have 1 interior Havana cabin on Horizon cruise but it accommodates 3 people they will not allow me to book that cabin because theres only 2 in our party. So I had to take exterior Havana Cabana for 8 days vs 15 days on Mardi Gras it's only 100 less in price pp. Ask to speak to supervisor as soon as she came on phone we were disconnected. I spent 1 hour on phone trying to get this cruise booked. I understand we got perks already for cancellation but now I'm in a situation of booking a cruise that are full. Maybe it's me but I think they could have made an exception on giving us a 3 person cabin.
  4. I see nothing interesting to us for same weeks. Especially a longer cruise. Idk what we're going to do but I'm very disappointed.
  5. Thanks for all the great advice about insurance definitely looking into getting it for this cruise. We will be driving to NY from PA then going to fly back to NY after cruise. We were thinking about hotel that has stay, park, and cruise, we have done that before but this time we may drive to NY day of cruise. DH mentioned parking at long term lot at airport then take uber over to port that way I car is there waiting for us. Not sure what to do but I know parking at port is expensive but convenient but were not doing closed loop. What is everyone else doing. We hate hassle of flying so if we can drive one leg of trip we would like to.
  6. So sorry to hear about your breast cancer, I pray it stays stable. I have never used a TA I always book directly on Carnival's website. I may just use the insurance carnival offers.
  7. So excited for this cruise we can't wait we booked a havana inside cabin wanted at havana balcony but they were sold out. It seemed like this cruise was popular and booked early. I have a question I have done many cruises but never gotten travel insurance and been lucky and never needed it or needed to cancel. But due to we are getting older I'm think about it for this cruise. Should I go with carnivals insurance or can anyone give my some suggests on insurance company's and whats important to look at.
  8. Hi we are also from Pittsburgh PA and this will be our longest cruise. I am also a nurse but retired. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. We also occasionally stay on ship, pool and hot tubs will be empty. Especially if we been to that port several times. It's more relaxing and saves a little cash buying more souvenirs and t-shirts we don't really need. We have abundance of souvenir island and Harley Davidson shirts.

  10. Can't wait for this cruise we have never been on cruise longer than 10 days. You will love Vista I was on it last year. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. A cabin crawl would be great. Last year when on Vista the day you board ship anyone was allowed in Havana area. Carnival probably wants to expose everyone to Havana for booking reasons. I looked the other day and a believe all Havana cabanas are sold out. Still feeling a little apprehensive about having an interior cabin. I would love to do a Panama canal cruise that's on my bucket list. I have been on Glory many years ago it's a great ship. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. Hi everyone we are Sue and Dean we live just outside of Pittsburgh PA. Just booked this cruise and we are staying in Havana interior a little nervous it's been a long time that we have sailed without a balcony but Havana Cabana was a little pricey. We love the Havana area we were on the Vista and spent most of our time there at Havana pool and never did use our porch area so really couldn't justify the price increase. We love southern Caribbean cruises did similar iternary a few years ago on the Jade which is our favorite cruise ever. This cruise seems so far away but looking forward to meeting everyone.

  13. When I first started cruising one night on a 7 day cruise they would have midnight buffet and me and my husband would look forward to it. All the beautiful ice sculptures, butter and fruit carvings. And they would have deserts mixed in amoung the carvings to choose and I think cheese appetizers. I'm sure it was a cost saving measure but it was nice and another sense of elegance that accompanied a cruise.
