  1. Was this posted on their Facebook page or regular web site? If Facebook only, that's pretty annoying -- all of us don't live on Facebook. Just saying...
  2. Petra, Thanks for taking time during your cruise for the pictures and information. May give us some ideas as to what cruising will look like when they start up again here in the US. I have to admit - just a bit jealous that we can't cruise right now. One question - if you get a chance, could you talk a little about what they're doing in the casino? Thanks & enjoy your trip!
  3. I agree that it would be nice if they notified that. But, I'd be a little concerned about 2 things: 1 - Why would they tell you that you can't have a new PVP within 2 months? And 2: Unless you told them it was about that specific cruise, why wouldn't they assume you're calling to book a new cruise? Seems like it would be in their interest to hook you up with someone new ASAP. My 2 cents worth (might be worth 1 cent now)
  4. When we cruised out of Southampton last year, we opted for a car service from the airport to the port. We spent one night prior to the cruise in Southampton. As I recall, it wasn't a lot more than buying the transfers and it was great being met at the airport and driven down to Southampton in a very nice Mercedes. Worth the extra $$ to avoid the hassle.
  5. No for veterans. Yes for stock.
  6. I just got a gift card today (as a partial refund on a March sailing) and even though it was under $100, it was still delivered by FedEx. The rest of my refund was credited to my CC on my last cycle. Good to see that it was less than 60 days from sailing rather than the 90 originally stated.
  7. Sounds like what you get on an Elite cruise. When we got this offer (on an Elite cruise), it included the specialty coffees, sodas & water in addition to the alcoholic drinks - and was good at any of the bars. I think the 15/day limit on alcohol was in effect, but can't say definitely 'cause I'm not a heavy drinker and never came close to that number.
  8. I'm just annoyed at how Carnival puts out these "announcements ". I don't do FB or instagram. I think they should put something on the web site or some type of mass email to all the cruisers with sailings in the next month or so - even if it's just to tell us their announcement is delayed. If it weren't for reading CC, I would still be looking for the announcement today.
  9. I'm hoping the letter goes away -- the original requirement (and the reason I had to cancel our cruise - which Carnival later cancelled entirely) was that the fit-to-sail letter was for anyone over 70 stating they did not meet any of the required medical criteria (diabetes, heart, kidney or lung disease). It wasn't just over 70 with conditions under control. They also said that anyone with any of those conditions would be denied boarding regardless of age.
  10. I probably expressed my opinion incorrectly - what I meant to say is that if the "over 70" letter remains a requirement, we have finished cruising. My DH is over 70 and does have one of the conditions shown. No way our doctor would lie and say he didn't have any of the stated conditions. Therefore - no more cruising.
  11. I'm waiting on the email later this week to see what's available. We love our Elite cruises!!
  12. I'm not sure what all they're doing. I canceled when they put out the "over 70" letter requirement. I have yet to really get what they said I would - confirmation plus a link to my FCC. What I got the day of sailing looked to be a canned letter they send out if you just don't show up to sail (shows the penalty amount). Sigh. Time to wade through the long line to speak to someone.
  13. Strange thing for us - we got the notice on Thursday afternoon and did the online cancellation form. No acknowledgement from Carnival and it's still showing in my online account. Did not get any phone call about my Saturday cruise being cancelled - but I did just get an email reminding me to make sure I printed my boarding pass!!
  14. I certainly hope that is not the case - if so, I guess my DH & I have been on our last cruise. I don't think there are many doctors who will risk a possible lawsuit by signing a "fit to sail" letter.
