  1. As a side note, having a 12 pack of water waiting in your room on boarding day is the best deal $$ wise on the entire ship. Save the bottles, and refill them with the 2 big bottles of water they give you. That will just about cover a 6-7 day cruise for two.
  2. I have found half and half at every Lido on every ship we've been on. Sitting on the aft area of Lido, cup of coffee in hand, watching the sun come up, makes me not really care how good or bad the coffee might be. All is right in my world at that moment.
  3. It's the best burger for miles and miles. It's greasy, yet dry. It's fast food, yet gourmet. It's a terrible wait in a long line, yet you get a burger pretty fast. I'm about 40 days away from one right now.
  4. A year ago there was an article about Mobile. Parking is the issue. Limited parking means none of the bigger ships, and just one ship working the port. Mobile is the closest port to me.
  5. Just to start a rumor, I think the Fantasy will go get balconies and upgrades (dry dock) like some of the other Fantasy class ships have. We are very happy with the option of balconies on a ship out of Mobile. This is a win for me.
  6. When we search for and book a cruise, our #1 priority is one of the 3 Dream class ships.
  7. When my wife and I cruise, I'm the early riser, she likes to sleep a bit. So in the mornings the chat is our way to find each other to start our day. It works great and is worth the $5 each.
  8. I love cruising. Any cruise. The closest port to me is Mobile, so I have cruised from there on the Fantasy. It is a good ship. It's called little, but there is lots of room and it doesn't feel crowded at all to me. Bottom line: if you look for rust you will find rust, even on a new ship. If you look to be offended or disappointed you will be offended and or disappointed. But if you are looking for a quick little trip to have fun, guess what, you will have fun.
  9. First day I always buy a big coffee mug in the fun shop and then carry it around full of coffee all week.
  10. Just one thing, if you are taking a "Carnival" excursion you will meet up and take a tender in with your excursion group, not one of the first off. So in that case the FTTF is not helpful. I've done FTTF, and I've not done it. It is hit and miss for really helping.
  11. I don't cruise for a specific brand of coke. I cruise for sun ups viewed from the aft Lido with a bad cup of coffee. I cruise for some of the best people watching this side of Walmart. I cruise for the ability to shut my brain down and let others do all the planning, driving, cooking, and cleaning. Coke or Pepsi, it's all just coke and something fizzy to drink.
  12. [Insert sound of high frequency squeal]
  13. A comfortable pair of sketchers is what was on my feet.
  14. I carry two pocketknives on a cruise. My EDC, a Benchmade mini-griptillian, and a smaller Case that I carry off when in port. What do I use them for? Normal stuff, clean my fingernails, cut my flat iron steak, pick my teeth, clean the toilet, and anything else that comes along.
  15. Mobile has a fairly swift boarding system so it is fast even without priority. We have had times of about 30 minutes from car to ship.
