  2. We bought the $500 gift card before the program ended and plan to pay for our drink package with it. However, I can no longer go on the cruise and DH will just be telling them at embarkation that I can't make it. Will he get a credit that can be cashed out at the casino or will he be sent a carnival gift card for the amount of my drink package? Thanks in advance.

  3. So we had a 4 day cruise planned  for November. I had transfered $200 in funpoints to my account from my Carnival MasterCard. And we bought a $500 AARP carnival gift card to pay for our alcohol packages. Right before the final payment date a job opportunity I've been waiting over 18months for finally became available with mandatory training required during our cruise. We decided that I won't go, and while we still look for a roommate for DH, we can't guarantee someone will replace me. Its a group cruise, so DH will have plenty of friends on board. I called Barclay to have the funpoints credit transfered to DH's name. Not sure yet if that went thru - they said it could take 3 weeks for a response. For the gift card if we prepay the drink package and I just end up not showing at embarkation, will the drink package be refunded for me? Can DH get cash back or a credit on the credit card he leaves on the account? Can he just play a few games at the casino and cash out there? Thank you!

    I’m curious, so I have to ask: what would cause a married couple to not arrive at port together?

    On our first cruise we flew separately- my phobia of going down on the same plane leaving our small children orphans.  So we arrived at different times and rather then have him wait at the airport for me to arrive several hours later he took an earlier shuttle to board the ship on his own. This time I have business commitments in the am so he is driving the 1.5 hr trip to PC with others in our group to board early and I will be coming in the afternoon. We now live in FL so no flights but we have the flexibility of being able to travel to suit our needs.

    It's just a flat rate for the cabin.  It's under your name because you bought it.  🙂 

    Thanks! I was looking at the Key program for RCI on my other cruise and it is $35.99 a person per day but I paid $60 total for a 4 day cruise for the FTTF! A nicer lunch in the MDR is not worth the price to get in quicker with the Key!!

    From memory it slopes to about 4’0” at its shallowest point.

    Lovely big cabin though and excellent views.

    Would definitely book it again.

    Thank you! I got a wonderful group rate that wasn't much more then our usual Inside cabin. DH had suggested trying a balcony but if I get a balcony I want ocean view and the difference in price just doesn't make sense with our budget. I'd rather put the $ towards excursions to enhance our enjoyment. I was very lucky and got the $18 deluxe beverage deal so I already spent a little more then I had expected as we wouldn't have purchased it otherwise. We've always wanted to go on oasis class but never seemed to  have  the money in a lump sum, so I just decided to stop waiting until the 'right time' and I booked it a year and a half out and am paying it off monthly.  My sister just asked if she and her DH could join us and she booked the room next door so it made me question if the rooms are 'good enough'- her DH has never been on a cruise before and her first will be with just me on Navigator in February. I hope they love cruising as much as we do and I especially hope our dhs get along and become friends- they've never met before!


  7. Ok so our cruise is 60 days away and I was just told by my boss that I am being trained for a job that I have waited over a year for, and the training falls right during  the cruise dates. We are trying to find another friend to be dh's roommate but since we were going with a fairly large group of friends, DH plans to go with or without a plus one. So I guess I will be a no show if we don't get a roommate. No way does it make sense to pay a single supplement!
