  1. csm, that's good info! Thank you. Please be so kind as to relate your experience regarding the embarkation process(ie: when was your check in time; how long did it take for processing once you got into the processing lines, going through the screening process, etc; waiting area wait; and finally get onboard ship. How long was all of that?) What time was your room ready? We are wrestling with what time to request port check in time when it's time for us to check in online. And I assume you sailed out of Galveston? That's our homeport if you will. lol
  2. My sentiments exactly! 👍 Wife & I discussed and wound up saying....nahhhhhh. Not worth it. Besides, we have more OBC than we could possibly use.
  3. Intrepid, I share your concern. BUT, I know I can only control what is in the realm I can control. I'm beginning to become very stoic about all of this. If it ,happens, it happens and there's not a damn thing I can do about, except roll with the punches and accept whatever may happen, will happen. It would not surprise me in the least that our cruise scheduled for Aug. 21 gets cancelled for the 4th time. If it does, we will simply request a refund, and either book an AI in Puerto Aventuras , or spend a week...or 2 at WinStar, and play the slots!
  4. Have they even DONE a B2B cruise that has been completed?
  5. The important thing to remember is that he has jumped on the band wagon, and endorses the vaccine as a vehicle to reduce serious illness and/or death. I wish our governor would do something like that.
  6. I didn't even know that was an option. I've always gone to Guest Services to load a gift card onto our S&S account. And congrats on your upcoming cruise!
  7. Following. I'm curious as well. Even though we are not diamond or plat, my wife is hounding me to find out after getting through port check in, and we're on the ship, how long a wait until we can go to the rooms. Which leads up to the next question. Assuming our room will not be ready until sometime after 1:30, what is the general consensus of a good time to request, when doing online check in? I'm thinking 1:00-1:30. Wifey is telling me she wants 12:00-12:30.
  8. Phew. Tough deal. Sorry you're in that predicament. IMHO, the cruise ships are not going to be anywhere near full capacity. The reason being, under current guidelines and agreement with the CDC, the cruise lines(not just Carnival) must provide for empty rooms in the event of an outbreak aboard ship. I think of it as an 'isolation ward' for cruises. They haven't been at capacity so far. And I don't see anything that would indicate that cruise ships could start moving to a greater capacity %. Maybe in 2022, but not now. Again, that's only my opinion.
  9. There was a post earlier today, that quoted JH cautioning guests from expecting they can drop off luggage as soon as they board, as per Carnival cleaning protocols, they are taking more time to more thoroughly clean each cabin. So you may want to rethink your carry-on packing. I'm sure others will chime in as the day goes on.
  10. He's a troll. He spends most of his time on the Royal Caribbean forum, and rarely bashes R.C.
  11. Well, I THINK I found a picture of the Seafood Tower. In fact, our own Blerk One posted a pic on the Carnival UK forum back in Sept. 2019:
  12. No, wait! I misspoke! Sorry! We actually learned of our cabin number when we printed out our docs and boarding pass! Sowwyyyy!
  13. I don't think there IS any test involved, if you are fully vaccinated and show your original vaccine card to the check in folks.
