  1. Update on Cuba travel ban 6/4: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-administration-puts-new-restrictions-on-cuba-travel/
  2. https://fox6now.com/2019/06/03/carnival-to-pay-20m-for-cruise-pollution/
  3. Update - MSC changed my status match from "classic" to "gold"
  4. Update 5/29 to status match - After contacting MSC again, they have now matched Carnival Diamond to MSC Gold...
  5. I was just trying to point out that their "status match" does not make sense to me. Carnival has Blue, Red, Gold, Platinum and Diamond MSC has Welcome, Classic, Silver, Gold and Black I have read other posts where the level match was not consistent (i.e. a Carnival Diamond person got "Gold" match) I would think Carnival Diamond would be MSC Black? (Platinum would be Gold, etc) Just my 2 cents...
  6. I have been on 43 Carnival cruises and was considering trying MSC because of their "status" match promotion. I signed up for the Voyagers club and my "Diamond" status on Carnival got me "Classic" status on MSC. Guess I won't be taking a MSC cruise anytime soon...
  7. MSC matched my Carnival "Diamond" level to "Classic" Really???

  9. I have the same issue. Workaround is to go to www.carnival.com/offers and enter your VIFP number
  10. Here's a picture of the diamond gift...
  11. Update - My wife turned Diamond on our cruise this past weekend (4/26-4/29). No luggage tag & dinner for two certificate in the cabin. I had to go to Guest Relations and ask them for it (another first time Diamond guest on the ship had to do this too). Looks like there is a communication problem with the VIFP department and the Guest Relations staff on some ships? (we were on the Carnival Inspiration).
  12. They don't have veggie burgers at Guy's anymore. You have to go to the Deli... (Inspiration and Vista - not sure about the other ships)
  13. The luggage tag is still on the VIFP benefit list - https://www.carnival.com/vifp/benefits.aspx
  14. I got my diamond luggage tag on my 3/31/19 cruise on the Vista.
  15. We are on the Inspiration and got the blanket.

  17. John Bolton said: "The Department of the Treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict non-family travel to Cuba. These new measures will help steer American dollars away from the Cuban regime or its military and security services who control the tourism industry in Cuba," Bolton added. I have a Cuba Cruise schedule for June. I have been worried that the US would stop travel to Cuba due to them helping Venezuela. Looks like it's going to happen...
  18. FYI - Carnival has a new parking plan in Long Beach, CA on Saturday's (probably because the parking structure is too small) Just got off the Carnival Splendor yesterday (8/11/18). We usually try to get to the port by 11am as parking seems to always be a challenge. This time we arrived at 10:30am on 8/4/18 to find the parking structure entrance closed. We were given a paper with directions to "off site" parking in downtown Long Beach (Pine and 6th) - $12 daily rate and the last shuttle bus was at 11:30am. Our first thought was - could the parking structure already be full?
