  1. I brought my rechargeable water pic w/o any problems
  2. Boarding is weddings, diamond/platinum, suites, then fttf
  3. I wore a long dress with black yellow box type that had bling and had no problem.
  4. We had a suite in late April and one benefit was one bag of free laundry. Also priority boarding for water shuttle.
  5. We sailed Dream 4/28/19, guess we were lucky b/c we rec’d a pen.
  6. We have arise on the Vista booked for June 2020, and saw fttf available this morning
  7. We just booked a grand suite on Vista yesterday. About the only other perk I found, other than priority boarding, disembarkation, is the grand suites have access to the Havana pool (must be 12 yrs old to use).
  8. I also don’t know what to expect since this is all new to us. We leave late April, no FTTF but in a suite. Got a check in time of 11:30/12:00, zone A-1. Plan to park in the port garage. WhAt time should we get there cuz I read on another forum about the garage being full by 11:30
  9. Thank you so much for this info. We’re not familiar with the area but booked this hotel based on a friend’s recommendation to stay in Kenner prior to our cruise.
  10. Thank you for the review and loved your photos. We sail our 1st cruise on the Dream in 42 more days.

    Thanks again, you’re a life saver. About how far is Metairie from Kenner? When I googled I saw a Chuck E Cheese there.

    Thank you so much! Centering our trip around a 4 yr old vs “just 2 adults” has made me more careful with each step of planning. I’m Considering booking the Best Western Plus on Airline Rd. Around how far is that from port and is there anything in that area for families to do in the evening?

    Hi. We are 1st time cruisers; 4 of us (me, husband, adult daughter and dear grandson) will be sailing on the Dream on April 28th. We’re driving from Arkansas, and should arrive in NO early to mid afternoon on the 27th, which means we need a room for one night. Somebody we know suggested Kenner, but i’ve never been to NO and have no idea about the area. We plan on parking at the port garage during the cruise, and b/c we’ll be traveling with a 4 1/2 yr old we won’t visit the French Quarter. My want list is breakfast, overnight parking, and internet included, but mostly I want a clean hotel in a safe area. It’s also come to my attention it’s the same weekend as the Jazz festival. I hope not to exceed $200 for the night and stressing. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations? Thanks bunches!
  14. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences, since I’ve never cruised before it’s helped me so much. We booked the Dream for late April. Looking forward to spring, which will help me to get thru those cold winter ho hum months!
  15. Dang I’m all messed up, sorry for the confusion. I’m trying to choose from carnival Dream (7242) and RCL Enchantment 7172. Ive overloaded on 7’s and 2’s.....It’s been one very long day ;p
