  1. I did not know this was available! There is always 1 night when nothing on the menu appeals to me.
  2. I wonder how he does that actually? Doesn't he need a boarding pass to even get into the terminal?
  3. This is how I avoided paying a new deposit to use my FCC: I went online and shopped around for a replacement cruise first and put it on hold. When booking online, click on 'Pay in full' and you will see the Hold option. This will provide you with a booking number. Then I called Carnival's 1-800 number. My original cruise was paid in full, 1,481.28 (cruise fare + taxes, fees & port charges). My new cruise is 1,471.28. The rep explained that the FCC is the portion that would normally have been a non-refundable cancellation penalty, specifically my deposits which were $50
  4. Yes, definitely 'on board' with a stop in Bermuda from a FL port for a 6-7+ day cruise!
  5. The reps that I have dealt with thru the 800 number have all been very helpful and wait times have been much shorter than I expected. Here is a breakdown of my experience: I used to have a PVP, but she retired. So I went online and shopped around for a replacement cruise first and put it on hold.

  6. You don't need a spa pass to utilize the gym and showers. These areas are free to use.
  7. If you ever go back to Grand Turk, keep in mind the chairs with the dark green umbrellas are under the management of the local tourism authority and are free to use. There is a tiny sign near the beach entrance letting people know that, but alot of people miss it. At some point, years ago, local vendors were allowed to set up their own chairs and umbrellas in the first 2 or 3 rows from the water's edge and charge $$ to use them.
  8. Yes! This was our favorite itinerary! Not loving the substitution of Amber Cove...
  9. This was very helpful! I called Carnival back. I also mentioned it was due to health reasons and not Covid-10 (not sure if that made a difference...) and the agent emailed me a Transfer Cruise Credit request form.
  10. Last year I booked and paid the deposits on 4 cabins for a sailing at the end of July 2020. We are not yet to final payment date. I recently had to cancel one cabin for my in-laws due to health reasons. I called the 800 number to cancel and I was told the deposits I paid for would count as a future cruise credit for my in-laws. Has anyone also experienced this? It is unlikely my in-laws will ever cruise again in the future. Is it possible a Carnival supervisor would move the FCC to the name on the credit card (mine)?
  11. Is the part about the fan having to be in carry-on luggage new? We have brought an O2 Cool fan like this one https://www.walmart.com/ip/Treva-O2cool-10-In-Fan-W-Ac-Adapter/711601509 several times, and always in checked luggage with no problems.
  12. I have never heard this.... Perhaps it was a thing "back in the day", but certainly not now.
  13. This was our experience as well! By day 2 it began to get annoying. We had gotten to know the trivia host, who also happened to be a DJ in the nightclub. We asked him to speak to the person who handles the daytime playlist and see if they could please change it up a little. It worked! For the rest of the cruise there was more variety to the music and still some country.
  14. The drawers are there under every sofa I have seen on the Conquest class ships. Although the drawers are quite roomy, they are usually stuffed with spare linens, blankets and mattress covers. They also tend to be hard to open.
  15. We also will never sail on the Vista again. They took a gamble on the forward theater re-design and failed miserably. The space tries to be too many things...lounge during the day, theater at night and dance club late-night. The floor is sloped because of the theater seating, but when all the chairs are moved out of way, the central part of the room becomes the dance floor. Have you ever tried dancing on an un-level floor? And because of all the chair-moving that needs to take place regularly, they made them small and lighter (and very uncomfortable to sit in for a lengthy show). John Hea
