  1. As a point of reference, for the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest, the young winners get a bag of candy and chocolate. The adult winners get a cheap bottle of champagne. We asked if we could trade our bottle for candy, but the CD couldn't make it happen.
  2. 2 years ago we were on a Halloween cruise on the Dream out of NOLA. I didn't expect so many to really get into it. Every night it was like a parade of costumes. Some were truly great, and very professional. I think the big winner of the contest was a little girl in a wheelchair that had decorated it up like a pumpkin coach and she was Cinderella. I love Halloween cruises, but I don't see myself packing detailed costumes like many did.
  3. We prebuy coke thru the carnival web site. I always get a 6 pack of zero and a 12 pack of water. It is in our room when we get onboard. The fridge keeps them cold and we have our one a day. Six packs are $10 and a 12 pack of predelivered water bottles is $4.50. Keep hydrated!
  4. Last year on the Dream the cups had 2018, not the name of the ship. This year on the Glory, I bought what looks like a hand cast cup with just the name of the Glory on it. Great cup, but a picture of the ship would be cool again.
  5. I normally grab the small table off our balcony, bring it in, and use it as a bedside table for my CPAP, and other stuff.
  6. WOW! That is EXACTLY what we did. I toured, she got the massage. And I got the bill for both.
  7. I have done the BTF tour. It is well worth the price to do once. Maybe twice if it's a different class of ship. Places you never see, like the morgue are on the tour. You can't go in, but you see the door and know it's there. On the Glory the biggest surprise to me was that they have an escalator in the galley for moving people and food up and down. At the end of the tour you get a BTF lanyard, hat, backpack, and some other stuff. You get to meet the Capt on the bridge and ask him questions and also take a picture with him. Our tour was on the last sea day. It took about 3.5 hours. Lots of walking and stairs. Do it.
  8. Wait until 3:58 and then run down the pier to get on the ship. Those of us lining the rails and shouting at you love our pier runners.
  9. Dream class. Followed by the next one I'm on.
  10. You could contact John Heald and plead your case. He might come up with something.
  11. I am Bama born by the grace of God, and I only fold the giant slices I get at Sam's club. That $2.50 slice and drink is the bomb. On the ship I love the prosciutto pizza. We do a late night 2 pizzas and carry them to the kareoke (sp) room to have dinner and a show. Good times.
  12. Fresh lobster, cooked correctly, and served immediately is a glorious thing. Mass cooked and served frozen lobster is a really good sponge for soaking up melted butter, which happens to also be glorious. I don't order lobster on cruises.
  13. I love the pizza on carnival.
  14. one note, on 5 day and less they don't serve Lobster on elegant night. And no snail app.
  15. The USB ports on the new bedside lamps have one issue to consider. If you have a higher amp, turbo/rapid charge type newer phone, the lamp usb can't handle it. Get a european 220v to USB converter and keep it in your cruise kit.
