  1. I received my email confirmation with my OBC and deposits moved to a new booking from a cancellation but when I checked Carnivals website with my booking the OBC does not show. Before I call my PVP has anyone else noticed this as well? I am sure it will be honored since I have the email.
  2. No the deposit was only$250 I can't really figure it out. Our deposit on our April Mardi Gras cruise was $250 which was cancelled. The deposit for our November cruise was $150 which was cancelled. So Carnival had $400 but still wanted the $100.00 to book the new cruise. $250 seems to be in limbo. I booked the new cruise reduced deposit 2 for 1.
  3. We had our April Mardi Gras cruise cancelled. Called our PVP to rebook for Thanksgiving 2021 on the Mardi Gras. We had $400 on the April cruise $150 was from a cancellation from November to rebook I had to put another $100 down to make the $250 deposit and the rest would be applied to the balance . Didn't really make sense but that's what it was. I did receive the $600 OBC . Still waiting for all this to show on my booking. We also had received the free cheers offer but would of actually cost another $1,200 . .
  4. We are on a five day. It should leave on Monday and return on Saturday. I would hope it would be the same amount of nights.
  5. We are booked on the November 23rd sailing. The email we received stated our cruise would now operate from the Port of Miami on a sailing within 2 to 7 days of original departure. Our stateroom assignment will remain the same. We would also receive a $100 OBC . Hoping the dates do not change due to this being Thanksgiving break for us. We should know by August 23rd.
  6. We have done 2 road trips. First to the Smoky Mountains and second to Savannah. Both trips were good but I miss my cruises. Hopefully we will be sailing for our booked Thanksgiving trip on the Sunrise.
  7. As others have stated I think the only value is if the ship has the Thermal Suites. The Spa cabins do have excellent locations as well and tend to be in a quieter area.
  8. I also voted for the Destiny class . We really enjoyed our cruise on the Sunrise . We liked the Red Frog Pub Venue and the extra food outlets. And it was our first Spa cabin experience. I am hooked on Spa cabins but they have to have the Thermal suites. Before that I would have said the Liberty. We are booked on the Mardi Gras for April cant wait to try the therapy pool. l
  9. Usually drive to port the morning of. Living in Florida most ports are a very short drive. We have on occasion when flying out of Miami stayed in a hotel the night before.
  10. November 23rd on Carnival Sunrise. Just booked Carnival Mardi Gras for April excited about this one.
  11. We have a cruise booked for Thanksgiving so yes we will go if they are sailing by this time.
  12. We book Empress or higher and to the front of the ship. We were on the Sunrise in November and were very happy with the location on the Promenade deck. Convenient to everything and quiet.
  13. You will need a Spa pass to go into the Thermal suites. Some one here had said there was a small coed sauna I did not see this when we were on her in November but we had a spa cabin so didn't look for one either. The gym is a decent size and there is a small free weight area with dumb bells. Not sure about the pools thinking maybe it was like open till 10.
  14. I was on the Sunrise in a Spa Cabin and I do not remember seeing a free coed option for the Saunas.
  15. The breakfast burger at Guys is really good. I did not get the hashbrown one but the one with the egg was so good I ate one for 3 days after I discovered them.
  16. Yes you pretty much can get anything but a few items. Some of the specialty juices are not available with the program.
  17. No hot tub in the Spa. We also enjoyed the location of the Spa Cabins we were forward on the Panorama deck.
  18. On the Sunrise over Thanksgiving we were given both Elemis shampoo and body wash in the dispensers but we also had miniatures bottles one of each shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturizer. From the spa we received a body scrub it was pre made and handed to us the first or second day .
  19. We were on her for Thanksgiving and enjoyed it so much booked it again for Thanksgiving 2020. I believe the ship was pretty much sold out and we really did not notice the crowding issues others have complained about.
  20. We also enjoyed our cruise over Thanksgiving on the Sunrise. We actually booked another cruise on it.
  21. Empress deck or higher and front for location very convenient to everything. Last cruise we booked a Spa cabin and will probably book these more on cruises that the thermal suites are only available to those booked in a spa cabin.
  22. We really enjoyed our Spa cabin on the Sunrise it did not have the therapy pool but it did have 3 different Sauna/steam rooms and the hot stone loungers which we really enjoyed. If it is set up like the Sunrise only Spa cabins and Spa Pass have access so very few people were using the amenities. We also really like the location of these cabins easy access to everything.
  23. We really enjoyed this cruise it was myself, husband, 21 year old daughter and her boyfriend. This was my 17th Carnival cruise. We were on the 10th deck with Spa cabins and we really enjoyed the access to the spa area especially since you can only have access to the steam rooms and sauna area with either a spa pass or room access. Which made for very few people there. Nice and relaxing. We did not take part in any of the other spa perks figured they would turn into a high pressure sales thing. The ship was very nice I really liked the world theme as I called it with t
