  1. Media-generated hysteria? They took it because the President hyped it as a cure. The wife's eventual response? "Don't trust anything President Trump says."
  2. We all want good news, but perhaps this study doesn't quite qualify. There's no scientific evidence that this drug is effective against covid-19, and a man in Arizona just died after taking the drug (as it was incorrectly identified by President Trump) in the hope that doing so would keep him from catching the virus. Right now there is hope but no good news. There is a difference - hope is an exercise in faith, news does include information that quack remedies are being promoted, but it's also hard facts - see Governor Cuomo's press conferences for transparency and truth. Rainbows and unicorns aren't my idea of facts. And oh boy,, am I sorry I can't take my April cruise.
  3. Yep, you can. I think tips and casino are the only exclusions. And I wasn't aware of the casino until your post...probably b/c I have enough charges on my account to cover the shareholder benefit without the casino lol. Hope you have a great cruise!
  4. I'm a big Carnival fan, but my first impressions are, at best, meh. The ship is going to be CROWDED - there's simply no way around it with the passenger space ratio being what it is. And where have you gone, Havana Pool? A tiiiiiiiny pool on Deck 8, no hot tubs, but a heckuva lot more Havana cabins than on Vista class. The Havana area was the best part of my cruise on Horizon - after a tranquil, relaxing day hanging out around the Havana Pool, a trip up to the crowded, frantic, and noisy Lido deck for a Guy's burger made me want to skip the food and run for my life. The Neighborhoods....whoops....Zones look OK but they are definitely derivative. I don't really see anything here that makes me want to cruise on Mardi Gras instead of any number of other Carnival ships.
  5. Not quite. On all but the $25 minimum tables, player blackjack pays 6 to 5, not 3 to 2. This is a sucker's game - if you bet $10 and get a blackjack, you get paid $12, not $15. Got it? If you want to gamble on Carnival, play craps - $5 minimum, double odds, a fair game. If you want to play blackjack, you can't get anywhere near a fair game unless you're prepared to play $25 minimum.
