  1. A BIG THANKS to all who helped us find Carnival's wine packages on Carnival's web page!! Jerry 'n Linda from WV
  2. We, too, are interested in the wine packages and will be sailing the Sunshine in a couple of weeks. After reading your post, I logged into our reservation and tried finding wine packages info. After having no success, I finally gave up. BossyKat, can you help me out with the steps that I need to take in order to get to the wine info about which grimpil inquired in the original post to this thread? THANKS in advance for your help.
  3. We will be sailing the Bliss in less than two weeks. I just received the following e-mail request from a family member that will be in our party. The e-mail text reads as follows: "Dad, Do you have time to ask on Cruise critic if the Bliss offers any wines that meet the below criteria? sugar-free (less than 1 g/L), low in sulfites, and lower in alcohol (12.5% or less)." Do we have anyone out there in "Cruise Critic Land" that can help me out? Thanks in advance for all answers and/or suggestions as to how we might find info related to our daughter's inquiry!
  4. Wonderful news, www3traveler!! Maybe someone presently on board will let us know if Clarense is back on board now!!
  5. Three weeks ago, we were docked in St Thomas next to the Bliss and I had the opportunity to ask a guest sailing on the Bliss whether or not Clarense was on board then. She certainly knew about Mr. Bennett but seemed sad to report that he was not on their sailing. She did say however that it was rumored on board that he would be returning to the Bliss soon. Thanks for your reply, brer111.
  6. We will be boarding the Bliss out of L.A. on Apr 21, 2019. Does anyone know if bartender, Clarense Bennett (AKA Chocolate Cowboy) will be on board for our sailing? We met him in July 2016 on the Escape and he was such a wonderful gentleman. We have heard rumors that he will be returning to the Bliss soon (if not already.) Looking forward to an update on Mr. Bennett's present assignment. Thanks in advance!

  8. Thanks Bob and Norwich Cruiser; Much appreciated!! Based on the info that the two of you provided, we will forgo carrying any wine on board our upcoming sailing on the IOTS!!
  9. We will be sailing the IOS in less than two weeks and have a question. Are Diamond lounge guests permitted to take glasses of wine from the lounge to the dining room? We sailed the Anthem OTS last month and we were allowed to do so on that ship. (On the Anthem, we boarded the sailing with our permitted two bottles of wine carried from home and ended up taking the same bottles back home with us at the end of the cruise due to the "wine to dinner" rules practiced on the Anthem. Our Independence carry-on luggage will be a bit less heavy if the IOTS rules are the same as the AOTS!!)) Thanks in advance to someone who can answer our question.
  10. Thanks again, alfaeric! We are most pleased to learn that the lounge opens at 4:30 instead of the usual 5:00 PM. We recently booked the 11 night 12/10-21/sailing (out of Ft Lauderdale) and ended up having to choose 5:45 dining times due to booking so close to sail date. We are D+ (422 cruise points) and plan to take your advice wrt the CL.
  11. Question for Alfaeric: Since you just sailed the Anthem, I hope it is OK that I ask you a question. We will be sailing the Anthem in a couple of weeks and are planning for our dinning times. Our question: Can you tell us during what hours the Diamond's Lounge is open for evening drinks? Your answer will help us decide whether to try to book early or late evening dining. THANKS in advance for your response!!
  12. aring75 - First, I want to say that we have thoroughly enjoyed following your live review of the Anthem. We will be boarding in about 6 weeks. When we sailed the Anthem during her inaugural year, Diamonds Plus members were permitted to visit either, the Diamonds Lounge or the Concierge Lounge. Do you know if we will still have that option at this point in time? Thanks in advance for your answer.
  13. Nance, Thanks so very much for your quick reply! I just finished sending an e-mail to Blexie as you advised. Based upon your experience, my inquiry to Blexie about booking might be too late since we sail on the NCL Sun on Sep 23 and will be in Havana on Sep 25. Thanks again for "coming to our rescue!!" Jerry & Linda from WV
