  1. Thanks for your thoughts. I ended up with a small suitcase that was "land clothing" left at the friend's home where we slept before and after the cruise (also my winter coat...as I come from the Midwest). We three had one largish-suitcase each, and a backpack. Suitcases fit under the bed, clothing in the closet. I did have some pieces that I creatively wore more than once (I mean -- when you have a fully sequined jacket for Mardi Gras...it also goes well with an 80's party and fun for formal dinner!) I had 1 shirt I didn't wear. No overweight fees with the airline coming or going, and I
  2. 2! Today is my last work day, then I fly to the west coast to spend a night with a friend before we board the Panorama on Saturday 2/22/20. My first cruise! Excited? Um...yeah!
  3. I know 50 pounds is the limit for flying on my airline...but does Carnival care if a bag (that is within their size dimensions) is a few pounds over...like 53? Starting my packing, and would rather move things from a carryon I'll leave behind to my one suitcase...
  4. Carnival didn't need my flight information, since I am arriving on Friday/leaving Sunday after a Saturday-Saturday cruise. I will not be using their bus transportation, so since my flight plans don't bump up against the cruise dates, the rep I spoke to said it was okay if I manually entered flight date in check in if I wanted, but that it wasn't necessary. I booked my own flights (not through Carnival).
  5. I had the same issue. I didn't book through Fly2Fun, and I'm not using Carnival transportation to the ship. Since I'm coming in the day before and leaving the day after cruise, when I called, was told it didn't really matter. So I found some Southwest flights similar to mine...
  6. Newbie here! We will be a group of 3. One of the cabinmates doesn't drink at all, the other two may have 3-4 drinks over the course of the entire 7 days. So Cheers makes zero sense for us...yes, even with the fancy coffee, etc. So I know all drink charges and gratuities will go on Sail and Sign cards. But...if one person wants to pay for a drink for both, how does that work? Will the bartender place both on one card? Is there a 5 minute wait, since one person is purchasing both?
  7. Well, 4 weeks from my cruise (yay!) and FTTF showed up again (after being offered, bought, cancelled and refunded in December). I've read that my sailing date is pretty much sold out, so maybe now they have a more accurate headcount? Anyway, purchased again (it's really important to one of my cabinmates...me, I'm a newbie) and hoping this time it sticks. 2/22/20 Panorama sailing.
  8. I got that same email, same non-explanation...and the link to sign up for "specials and news" at the bottom of that email is busted. I'm going to have a fine first ever cruise!!...but the glitchiness sometimes is frustrating.
  9. The FTTF came off my planner, off boarding passes and luggage tags. Got this email regarding the cancellation of FTTF for 2/22/20 cruise. I find it interesting that the reason, if you read it, is "due to ." No explanation. Also, the link to sign up for "exclusive News and Specials" is busted. I'm going to have a fine first ever cruise!!...but the glitchiness sometimes is frustrating.
  10. When I called, was told it was too many P/D's...but I'd think they would know that after final payment day, which was a couple weeks ago...BEFORE FTTF purchase was offered. Rep claimed no glitch. Now hopefully also no glitch in getting my money back!
  11. What gave you that wonder? Carnival's site states that FTTF will be offered starting with Feb 2020 cruises...so when I called about my 2/22/20 sailing date, and the rep sold it to me, I figured I was set. I know Carnival isn't having their Best Day Ever today...but it would have been nice to get a notification from them before I found out on social media and had to follow up myself. Oh, well...still get to take a great first trip!
  12. Faster to the Fun is being pulled from Panorama sailings. 😞 At least mine, 2/22/20 -- called and was told that there are too many Suite/Platinum passengers....the $109.95 is still on my credit card...told I'd be refunded in 10 business days. So...check yours and see if you get to keep it for your sailing dates. Sigh...
  13. About to call, but I looked in my Planner and see that the FTTF I purchased for my 2/22/20 Panorama Cruise is no longer showing up...my credit card still shows the charge. Am seeing on Facebook groups that this is happening to other sailing dates, too....will update after I hear from Carnival...but grrr...
  14. Did you try calling Carnival? I was able to get it for my 2/22/20 sailing...and it never showed up on the website or HUB for me...
  15. So I kept searching online...still nothing showing up under the Shore Excursions tab. So I tried searching "FTTF - Long Beach" I was able to see it, click "add to cart"...then nothing. Cart stayed empty. Just called Carnival this morning, and was able to book it for our 2/22/20 cruise! Seems like a phone call might be in order...that Carnival website is...something.
