  1. on my phone, if I scroll all the way to the top of the page, a second search magnifying glass will show up beneath the main one. That’s the one with the drop-down menu.

Make sure you bring your power strip. Very comfy bed. Close to elevators, no issues.
  3. I got a $500 one a couple of weeks ago. The confirmation email stated that someone would have to sign for it when it was delivered, but that was not the case. They left the package by our door.
  4. Still loving the review! How long was the bus tour? We're thinking about taking it.
  5. We use Allianz. It's actually through our travel agent. We've never had to use it, but it has some really good benefits. I guess the short version is, don't get hung up on Carnival's insurance. I hope your father gets better.
  6. Following along! We're sailing this cruise in January for our anniversary. Fantastic review, so far!
  7. That's some good information. Thanks a lot. We will most likely do something like you're talking about.
  8. We will be visiting Progreso for the first time in January. We are traveling with another couple and I don't think we're going to do an excursion. We were talking about just hanging around and seeing some of the local stuff, maybe a beach massage, that kind of thing. What I was really wondering, does anyone know if there is a place that rents scooters for the day? Is Progreso big enough to even bother with something like that? Thanks in advance!
  9. We're sailing on her in January, the second sailing after she gets out of dry dock. I'm wondering if they might get added during the dry dock. It's only two weeks, and I'm not that familiar with how much time it takes to do something like that. We usually do a review when we get back, so maybe we can answer you then!
  10. Thanks for the great review. WerWe sailing on the Fantasy in January. I do have a question about the room. Did the lamps by the bed have the USB ports in them? The Elation did, and it's had the same upgrades. Thanks in advance!
  11. Like many people have already said, research on CC and TripAdvisor. We booked an independent excursion for much less than Carnival. The tour operator guaranteed us to be back to the ship on time, and would refund our deposit if the ship didn't make port (it was August, hurricane season). We had a great experience with it. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
  12. Research on your own. Boards on here are good for first-hand information. Google is your friend. On our last cruise, I booked through a reputable company on Jamaica that guaranteed us back to the ship in time. It was half the cost of the cruise line excursion.
  13. Ship - Conquest Deck - 10 Panorama Stateroom # - 1041 Stateroom Category – Interior 4J? Starboard or Port Side - Starboard Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – yes Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – n/a Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - n/a Was wind a problem? - no If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - n/a Any specific problems with this cabin? - no Any other comments? - Panorama deck was a great location. Loved the deck at the front of the ship. This was our first inside cabin. We wanted to try one, just because. We had no issues at all. Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  14. We just got off the Conquest yesterday! We loved it! I'm going to write a review soon.
  15. Personally, I like the burritos. They are amazing.
  16. We were on the Elation in February (fog delayed cruise). It was amazing!! We had such a great time. We're fairly new to cruising and have only sailed Fantasy class so far. In August, we sail on the Conquest. We can only hope we have as good of a time on a larger ship. Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  17. 37 for the Conquest! Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  18. You and Steeragejoe knocked it out of the park. Thank you! Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  19. That is some grade A information, right there. Thank you so much. Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  20. I've looked that over, but I guess I was hoping for something a little more informative. Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  21. Yes, we have reservations with a group at the Sheraton Four Points, not far from the port.
  22. We're leaving on the Conquest out of Port Everglades in August. We've never been to this port before, so we were wondering what traffic would be like at the port. What time should we plan to be at the port for a 12:00 boarding time? Is the route to the terminal and parking well marked? I'm probably over thinking this, but any pointers would be appreciated.

  23. I just checked in today for an August cruise (Conquest! Can't wait!). But yes, I was able to select a check in time and I haven't done my final payment yet. Sent from my NS-P11A8100 using Forums mobile app
  24. Also, if you pre-purchase from the website, it is at a discounted rate. $4 per day, if I remember correctly.
