  1. I hope he decides to wear the uniform. It looks sharp and his service is something of which to be very proud.
  2. A local restaurant critic has a website www.nomenu.com which has a breakdown of local restaurants by neighborhood. This might be helpful for the food part. I don't have a good suggestion for handling the luggage.
  3. It takes about seven hours to go down the Mississippi River but I cannot say when the casino will open.
  4. Thanks for the feedback. I was planning to take an Uber the 45 minute drive to my home from the port.
  5. I would like to know anyone's recent experience getting an Uber after disembarking in New Orleans. Thanks.
  6. The port side will give you good views of New Orleans. This includes a great view of the St. Louis Cathedral.
  7. Thanks Sauer-kraut, the pillowcase is a great suggestion.
  8. You can store your luggage at the hotel. After that enjoy a nice lunch somewhere. The battleship (USS Alabama) tour is interesting.
  9. I saw someone's photos of the muster drill on the Valor from a couple of years ago and everyone was wearing life jackets. Several years ago, on another Carnival cruise, we had to bring and put on the life jackets. Hopefully, this is not necessary anymore.
  10. We are looking forward to sailing on the Getaway on October 20 out of Copenhagen. This is a 19 day cruise and it follows our spending 3 days in Copenhagen. We are wondering if there is a self-service laundry on the ship that is convenient to use. Our cabin is on deck 9. I realize there is a full-service laundry on the ship but we would prefer to do it ourselves. Thanks for the information.
  11. We are sailing on the Carnival Valor on September 23. It has been six years since our last cruise on Carnival. I understand the muster drill on the Valor is outside. I would appreciate it if someone can share whether life jackets are required at this drill. I think wearing the life jacket outside for 20 minutes will be too much for my wife and we may have to go to the alternative area. Thanks for the feedback.
  12. This year, I am going on a Carnival cruise and it has been several years since I sailed with Carnival. I found that my VIFP did not have any past cruises. I called Carnival and it seems I formerly had separate logins for VIFP and Carnival.com. They have now merged this. The Carnival rep fixed this while I held on the phone. It did not take long. I also used the shareholder credit while sailing Princess. I have never had a problem getting the credit, but I have never received a confirmation of the posting. It just shows up on my account. It would be nice if they would send a notification but I did not find it that big of a deal. I encourage you to put these things behind you and enjoy your cruise.
