  1. I'll be doing this one soon. Excited to see all of what you did!
  2. I have read multiple times that "common space was taken away" from the Sunrise in areas like the comedy club and main show lounge. Looking at the deck plans between the Triumph and Sunrise, they are exactly the same. What am I missing?
  3. I honestly have no idea why this kind of stuff keeps getting compared to assisted living. These are not the same thing. The primary focus of assisted living is nursing care as you have difficulties caring for yourself. If you that elderly and/or sick and cannot care for yourself, spending almost a half of a year on the ship is probably the worst choice you can make. With that said, if I had the money, I would want to spend as much as my time on vacation as well. Some people naturally gravitate towards the most expensive options. Money can go a longer way through companies like Carnival.
  4. I have heard of corn tortillas, but I haven't seen them. Other than that, you can do a taco salad
  5. Looks like fun. I've always debated if I wanted to do that itinerary or not. Looks like I have to try it. Especially with Panorama on the way I tried my first in and out burger last year in Vegas. It was good, but overrated. I like Guy's better
  6. The top perk of becoming Platinum is wearing it on your lanyard to show off, then to lie about why you do it
  7. Glad to hear you had a great time, and happy 60th! I too find it hard to believe that a ship that traditionally didn't have issues with crowding is overwhelmed with 8% more passengers. Still, I would never cruise during the peak summer months.
  8. I don't think you can go wrong either way. So there's that. In fact, my advice is usually try one now and one later! If I had to pick, I would pick the pride though. 2 more days is 2 more days of so much FUN! Plus, I love that itinerary.
  9. I guess that is a good point, that I didn't consider. Still, I don't fully buy it. What bartender wouldn't make you a new drink if you HATED the one you had? Who is really ordering all of these drinks they don't like? Who is really trying this many drinks they have never tried before? Heck, who is really ordering 15 drinks? These are extreme examples
  10. All the time, I see people snub their noses at Cozumel, Freeport, Nassau, etc (I won't lie, I think Freeport needs some work, but I still find a way to have a good time). These have been the majority of my cruises, and I love them. Don't get me wrong, I probably look forward to an 8 day to Aruba the most. My 7 day on the Fascination was one of my favorite. I do think these ports get more hate than they deserve. I get that not all of us want to go to the same place every time, but I have a blast everywhere. My next cruise is a 4 day to Cozumel only out of New Orleans. I can't wait! Who else?
  11. While I had a fantastic cruise on the Sensation, not my favorite type of ship. I've found the Conquest class has more going on
  12. I could be wrong, but I thought they showed more than 1. Not quite the frequency of dive-in, but still I thought, at least a few
  13. Once you've hit 15 drinks, it's time to call it a night. Regardless of what you read on the internet, vacation is not about consuming every possible item to "get your monies worth" If you absolutely cannot live without more, buy a bottle or 6 pack from the fun shops in advance, bring some wine, or just drink some non-alcoholic drinks.
  14. I agree. While I'm sure Carnival has data we don't, I can't think of too many large businesses that sell soda in cans. I know I would also be way more willing to purchase a soda if it came from a freestyle machine vs a crowded bar. Cherry vanilla coke mmm
