  1. I have cruised on her 4 times now and loved every single one. To me I don't care that you go to the same port. I enjoy getting away, laying on deck, and just getting away. I go back in 79 days!
  2. Those safes are easy to open, but I locked myself out on a cruise and a security officer had to come to open. Story just seems odd.
  3. I cannot agree more. The rails are high enough that if you "fall" off the ship, it was stupidity or intentional. My mother was terrified to cruise because of these types of stories, then her first cruise made the comment, "You have to be stupid or crazy to fall".
  4. I have enjoyed Progresso each time I went. Vendors do tend to heckle a bit more, but it is how they make a living. I just ignored and kept walking. It is a quaint little city. I enjoyed some of the local tours. If you haven't been it's worth the trip IMO. Not as beautiful as Cozumel or many other ports.
  5. Every time I have cruised on Fantasy this has been my experience as well.
  6. Usually 2. Last year 3.
  7. Personally I would suggest having the childs card on them if possible. A lady on our cruise her daughter was 7 and in a big crowd in Cozumel she dropped her hand for a second to pick up a shirt, daughter was right next to her, then daughter was gone, she had stepped around a corner, then walked out thinking she had seen mom in the crowd. Child got lost, and because a sign and sail card was on her, authorities got her to where she needed to go, and was able to notify the ship where the child was. I understand children losing things, but in a foreign country some form of ID on them is a good thing.
  8. You can take a spouses sign and sail card. But if you are getting 2 coffee's on your sign and sail card you will have to wait 5 minutes. Usually water isn't a issue. I have found the key is find a good bartender/barista and tip them well, they remember you and tend to do more for you.
  9. The Fantasy scored a 99 on its October 5 inspection. https://www.wkrg.com/top-stories/carnival-fantasy-passes-re-inspection-after-failing-july-health-inspection/
  10. MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Mobile city officials and Carnival Cruise Line officials will sign a contract extension keeping the Carnival Fantasy in Mobile for three more years on Monday. The ceremonial signing is set for noon aboard the Fantasy. The three year-contract extension would keep the Carnival Fantasy in Mobile through November 2022. Carnival resumed service in Mobile in 2016. Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson has been an advocate for the city’s relationship with Carnival saying it brings tourists to Mobile. The contract agreement also outlines the Carnival Fantasy’s schedule through December 2020 https://www.wkrg.com/top-stories/mobile-city-council-to-vote-on-contract-extension-with-carnival-during-tuesdays-meeting/
  11. CJJ - They have the buffet, Guys Burgers, Blue Iguana Cantina open usually. But depends on the ship and could be more, but seems like that is generally what is available. They are open until boat drill if I am not mistaken. But you can eat something as soon as on board. Just know it will be busy, lots of people waiting in these areas until their rooms open, with all of their carry-on luggage. Very crowded!
  12. Still I am correct. The price will go up once the cruise is here. Whether there are two prices the pre-purchase or onboard doesn't really matter. The current price WILL go up. It will NOT go down because as you said there are two prices. So I AM correct. It won't go down, it will go up.
