  1. Thanks all. As luck would have it, I'm pretty sneaky lol. I told my wife that I may need a passport for a new opportunity at work which may require travel into mexico. I'm a truck driver. We can go to mexico with just our CDL but she doesn't know that. Told her my company is paying for mine but we may as well get her one too so they stay in sync with each other. She agreed and still has no clue about the surprise. *evil grin*
  2. Awesome, so a marriage licence will suffice. Thanks! Oh and side note, I bought travel insurance as you guys suggested in my last post. Just over 100 bucks is a small price to pay for coverage during hurricane season!
  3. Thank you all so much for all the terrific answers I got on my last batch of questions. They were very helpful and I now understand how the MDR and such work. My next concern is ID requirements. I dont have a problem taking our drivers license or birth certificates. We have official documents complete with seals. We do not have passports. We COULD get them, but if you read my last post, this is all going to be a total surprise to my wife and if I make her get a passport, she will KNOW something is in the books. So with that being said, what about her last name? She got married to me (duh), and it doesn't match her birth certificate. Would bringing a copy of our marriage license bridge the gap for this? I dont know what else would suffice. Id love to be able to get passports and be done with it but you have to go in person to do all that and like I said, my secret would be out of the bag.
  4. Thanks all. This info was very helpful. How do I know which nights are elegant nights? I don't see a calendar or anything but it may be too far away still. I'm assuming elegant night applies to the MDR as well as the signature dining places correct?
  5. Glad I found this site... maybe you guys can help me out. In September 2019, It will be our 20th anniversary. She THINKS I only have a trip to the beach planned. But no, I have a cruse to Bermuda already booked up. Im doing all the planning pretty much on my own. I got a flight booked, transfer service scheduled, and even a shore excursion planned. Im doing it solo because I want it to be a surprise for her that Ill reveal a week or two before we go. With this being our first cruise, I had some questions. We are going to be on the Carnival Breeze by the way. 1 - Our trip makes a stop at the Grand Turk where I have already booked a entry level snorkeling excursion. But Im not sure how I am going to find where to go for the excursion once we dock at grand turk. 2 - Whats the point of having a "dining time"? I was under the impression you could eat 24/7 as much as you wanted to on a cruise (aside from obvious signature dining locations). Part of a cruise was staying stuffed with food all the time right? 😃 Am I wrong in thinking that you can eat at any of the included diners anytime, and as often, as you would like? 3 - Are there Ice machines that you can get access to or like a mini fridge in the rooms? Just thinking about being out on the balcony (we have an aft balcony room) and getting thirsty. 4- Room service is....really free? First time cruiser so I honestly dont know. So If I want some food or a sweet treat at 9PM I just call room service and they bring it to me all included? This seems so foreign to me since normally not only do you pay for the food they bring, but you also pay for the service of them bringing it to you. 5 - How is luggage handled? When we get off the plane with our bags, we find the transfer service. But what then? Im sure they will let us know but figured I would ask. Do we carry our bags to our room right away or do they have some kind of service like an airport that does it for you or what? Sorry to be so ignorant. Ive been researching so much on the internet regarding cruises. Watched countless youtube videos and read even more websites. I still have 9 months before we depart but Im the type that likes to have his ducks in a row as early as possible. I appreciate all the help. Im gonna prod around on this site to see if I can find some answers in previous posts here.
