  1. Nevermind! Must have been something glitchy going on, because now they are back to "normal". 🤷‍♀️🙃
  2. I did a little searching but didn't find anything, so my apologies if I should have searched further. It has been about 2 years since I booked a CCL cruise, but I am happily about to book 2!! 🤗 I typically do early saver and then watch rates/request adjustments. Right now, though, the ES rates are slightly higher than the non-early saver rates. I don't remember that happening before. So, what is to keep me from booking ES and then immediately requesting the lower rate? Will they turn it down? If so, will it be that problematic figuring out which rates they will match and whi
  3. Hi all! I am in Rome, departing on a cruise tomorrow from Civitavecchia. I am trying to figure out my best way to get to the port, and a search provides a ton of info that seems so complicated, I get overwhelmed and can't understand it. Can someone please suggest a simple/easy to follow way for me and my kids to get to the port without overpaying? I usually feel like a fairly intelligent traveler, but trying to figure this out is really getting to me, for some reason! TIA.
  4. Update....it is still there and indeed is the Panorama! Got closer via train than I had by bus, so I got a good look. Very cool to see her!
  5. That was my first action and I saw the same! But it was a definite Carnival whale tail. 2 big water slides and other features that looked like Dream class.
  6. Maybe it was still there (but I didn't see it). I could have had too much wine in Venice 🤪. I will look again this morning on the way back in.
  7. Yeah, I checked that first and saw the same. It isn't entirely clear, especially since I am embarking at what is a port stop for probably more than half the ship.
  8. Hello! I am currently in Venice and about to board NCL Epic near Rome midweek. I bought some small bottles of limoncello here but now I am worried. Will NCL let them onboard and hold them until debarkation? I am fine with that, but I am afraid they won't allow them at all on my embarkation day. Hoping since lines allow purchases in port (but hold them), I can get by.....
  9. I am in Venice before going to Rome for a cruise on another line but saw the familiar whale-tail in port yesterday and today (it was gone by tonight). What ship was here? I thought Carnival had no European itineraries at this time?
  10. Thank you! Very helpful! I will check into the kids stuff too, although they usually avoid it 😕
  11. Hi all! I am leaving in just over 2 weeks to sail on the Epic from Rome. I am traveling with DS (17) and DD (12), and we all have sailed Carnival many, many times (and know what to expect there!). A few questions about dining.... Is there a pizza place? a burger place? a deli? I looked at the description and do not see these things, but wanted to make sure. The kids LOVE Guy's burgers on Carnival, so they are hoping there is something at least kinda comparable? At the main dining restaurants, do they serve steak every night as an option? How about salmon?
  12. I am booked on the Epic in June and got the "free" specialty dining package. However, every time I look online, the website says the specialty restaurants are "not available to book." I started looking 120 days out, then checked again and again. Made sure to go look on the 90 day mark (no change) and have checked every few days since. What am I missing? What good is there to having the package if I can't get reservations? And if I can't ever get in, can I get a refund on the prepaid service charge for my "free" dining package that I don't get to use? TIA!
