  1. I've never even thought of doing such. Many people you don't come in contact with get a percentage of the tip pool. Taking your tips off and saying you're going to hand them out personally just sounds like your trying to stiff them or you're so controlling that you want to be in charge of who gets what (impossible without leaving many out). We had neighbors that we'd go out to dinner with that would always stiff the waiter or leave just a dollar. I and my husband would have to leave extra tip money to make up for our cheap neighbors. We no longer go out with them, they are an embarrassment.
  2. How's the ships internet? What package did you buy, I see they offer 3 different options?
  3. Thank you OP for starting this thread and to those who have continued to post codes.
  4. I can easily gain ten pounds on a 7 day cruise. I don't eat or drink at home like I do when I'm on a cruise but it's still not a lot. It's mostly water weight and when I come home I lose the extra ten lbs pretty fast. My husband eats the same at home as he would cruising and doesn't gain anything. He's one of the lucky ones that I'd like to punch in the face. 😂
  5. https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1146/~/casino-and-carnival-players-club® Says 5000 daily limit and more if your a premier invited guest. I might look into this more just to make sure. Thanks
  6. Kwokpot,...The points are definitely a plus, but the convenience of not carrying around large amounts of money is so nice! We were on an NCL cruise where we overheard a couple talking to security about a missing wallet with 5,000 dollars in it. Not a good way to start out your cruise. Urbanhawk,... This cruise we have coming up is from a casino offer. We've been on lots of cruises (platinum NCL), (Gold Carnival), and we've never done a casino offer before now. NOT having to tote around cash will also be a first! 🙂
  7. Getting ready to go on a Carnival cruise, Usually I take large amounts of cash to play at the casino. I read somewhere that you can charge slot play to your room, then pay the bill at the end of the trip with your credit card with no fee attached? Is this information correct? TIA
  8. Gettys84 How was the new cake? Is it worth the carbs? I've been carb free eating for the past 7 months and my next cruise is in about three weeks on the Sunshine. Enjoy yourselves ! 🙂
  9. I booked a Premier cruise yesterday that leaves out in like three weeks from (Charleston) and when I printed my Boarding Passes and Luggage Tags, nothing on there states priority or premier. It just looks like regular old documents. Maybe I should call and ask what's up with that?
