  1. We first cruised when my trio was 4. We didn't bring electronics, so we brought a few things to keep them entertained during down times. Crayola mess free markers with the coloring sheets, washable crayons and coloring books, several free printables of dot to dots or seek and find pages for preschoolers. I also hit the target dollar spot for some small toys that would be brand new (they had cute felt books at the time) so that they would still be exciting.
  2. Unfortunately, trying to book 5 person rooms without talking to a person is really hard. NCL and Carnival will let you do it on the site, but others like RCL require that you call. I ended up booking connecting ocean view rooms on Carnival, which was much cheaper than any of the suites while affording us more room and a second bathroom. Our kids will be 6 at the time of sailing, so we didn't want the balcony, but they were available connecting as well. A call to a TA or the cruise line is the easiest way to do this, as they can look up which connecting rooms are available that meet your party size. You can also start the process of booking the first room, looking at all the rooms still available with connections, then seeing if any of them connect to another room with the correct party size (Carnival had a lot of 2s that connect to 2s or 3s that connect to 3s, which we couldn't book). This is super time intensive and annoying, though.
  3. I'm not the OP, I know not to look for it in the Carnival site yet. I'm just suggesting that it's possible, if the OP got their OBC through a TA, it may not show as well.
  4. Yes, mine is not part of the fare code. He told me they do essentially pay cash a few weeks before departure.
  5. I booked today and the TA specifically told me that their OBC wouldn't show on the Carnival site because of the way they do it. So, at the very least, it varies depending on who you use.
