  1. Carnival paid some commissions on cruises that were past final payment, not all though or even most. Many agencies charge admin fees specifically because of cancellations- their agents do hours and hours of work for zero pay. They should be disclose up front though.
  2. Cruise was scheduled for 6/13. Requested FCC, got notice of cancellation last week with penalty notices, was told to ignore it. Today I received a refund of $90.
  3. Well the cruise prices continue to drop, another $250 since Sunday. Since I didn’t take the ES I lost this gamble. Silver lining-makes me feel like I’m in the casino on the ship?😂
  4. I saved $550 so it's a win either way I think.
  5. I ended up keeping the lower rate, and so far my rate is still the lowest. With the shutdown, a ton of people have switched over to my sailing and cabins are filling up super fast.
  6. The rates have dropped more- I'm currently switched into the lower rate. Still watching the ES rate as it's around $150 lower than my original booking right now.
  7. Fares just dropped again since last night. Early saver is now the exact same price as my current offer, and my current rate code dropped by $100. Fare difference is $418, so pretty significant.
  8. Hi all, I'm currently booked for a cruise on the Panorama in june- quad cabin GTY balcony. When I booked, the next cheapest rate was over $400 more. Since summer bookings usually don't drop I figured the GTY was a safe bet. Now after last week's scare and all of the news and updates, the price for early saver has dropped to $80 more than my current booking. I can't decide if I want to take the risk and pay $80 for the possibility of saving $ if the price continues to drop after final payment this weekend? Or should I reprice into my current rate code, which will save me $300 right now b
  9. There are a massive amount of mexican restaurants in California that are not cal-mex.
  10. I miss the curly fries and the build your own mac and cheese, along with the bearnaise.
  11. FTTF never returned for the 2/1 cruise but it is available for the 2/29.
  12. This exactly. Only the Imagination is affected.
  13. In our experience (6 cruises with a Penguin) the majority of the kids in the club will be 3/4/5, with a much heavier concentration on the 4/5 year olds. For night owls they combine the age groups so he'll be able to go over to the older kid side. Now that my kid is a Stingray she uses night owls to go back to the penguin room because they have more imaginative toys (my little pony, etc) and she misses those. Also, my kid is an only child and while she was a penguin she was the youngest of all the cousins. I worried because she spent most of her time around older kids even at school (younge
  14. I've purchased the couple's spa pass with a friend in a different cabin before, they paid the whole amount and I just paid them.
  15. Am I the only one who doesn't like a super heavy pour? I like my drinks to be balanced, not burn my throat. Also, Carnival has never watered things down like Royal- after a week on that ship I thought I had a high alcohol tolerance. One drink on land and nope, it was their weak drinks.
  16. From what has been said in the past, as long as you've paid for it at all everything is included. Ours seems to fall into a weird area because although it wasn't a paid upgrade, it technically wasn't an upgrade as there was no cabin assigned in a lower category.
  17. My in laws were booked into a guarantee balcony on the Panorama, and they were just assigned a spa cabin! I'd read before that upgrades into the cabin don't qualify for the spa pass as you've paid for the lower cabin so I called. The PVP said that the system assigned them that cabin so they'd receive all of the benefits as it isn't technically an upgrade from a previously assigned cabin. Has this happened to anyone else?
  18. Imagination and inspiration both have the new menu. I miss the old one.
  19. It depends on the cruise, but usually around 1500.
  20. Wow I had no idea- I'm in a spa cabin on deck 12 in a couple weeks. We have 3 people in our cabin so no choice- they're only on deck 12.
  21. Coming from Disney Cruise lines and the ridiculously bad burgers they served pool side, Guy’s tasted like heaven. Sure (insert burger chain here) might be better on land but you’re in the middle of the ocean. I’m also not a fan of in n out so 🤷🏻‍♀️. Everything tastes of onion, except the fries which taste of cardboard.
  22. You have to be out of your stateroom by 8:30am. On the smaller ships the lines can be quite long- we’ve been off anywhere between 9am and 10:00am. The Queen Mary is right next door and free for Carnival passengers, might be a fun way to spend a few hours. They have luggage storages as far as I know.
  23. I put my cases in a roll on carry on, and then use the other half for swim stuff/things I need to carry on. Then on the way home it's souvineer space.
