  1. I remember in one episode of "The Cruise", that part of the story was that they had to have a piano installed in that area. This was when it was in Australia, so by then I think they had already kind of given up on the "VIP Gaming Lounge".
  2. My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw the "no Fettucine Alfredo" post!
  3. That's what I plan on doing. I don't need my room "cleaned" twice a day, but in the evening I would like fresh towels, the trash emptied and the beds turned down. I think when talking about twice a day "service", people confuse a room cleaning with a turndown. I was an Executive Housekeeper in a 1000 room hotel, and we had a fraction of the staff at night we had during the day, because a turndown takes just a couple of minutes as opposed to a cleaning.
  4. They also had a Resort in San Diego--The San Diego Princess. I stayed there back in the mid 90's. They had a ship model of the original Pacific Princess in the lobby! The hotel is still there, operating as the Paradise Point Resort and Spa.
  5. So even if the cruise is "fully vaccinated", it's still only required that 95% should have gotten the jab. I wonder if it's just for those 5% who aren't, rather than for a "vaccinations not required" sailing.
  6. And if you want to see the Carnival Miracle (and other ships) when they get to Seattle, this is a good webcam: Space Needle Panocam | Space Needle
  7. Heald said in his post that it would be getting a signature Carnival funnel.
  8. Correct. Coke's product is Pibb Xtra. I've had it on Carnival ships in the past.
  9. In the Suite Lounge on Navigator of the Seas, before happy hour that starts at 430, do they have any complimentary non-alcoholic beverages or snacks?
  10. The only thing I think that would make customs a thing is that you're out in international waters, buying a bunch of duty free stuff in the onboard shops. But who knows!
  11. California also has one as of yesterday. Optional to participate.
  12. When talking about Mexican Riviera cruises, I'm not sure why people say that the Pacific is rougher than the Atlantic. I have been on at least a dozen Mexican Riviera cruises, and have never felt any movement at all. I agree that if you're crossing the Pacific, that might be true, but unlike a Caribbean cruise from Florida there's no crossing of a big current like the Gulf Stream that I'm aware of. I've always found Caribbean cruises bumpier. Your mileage may vary.
  13. The "Mardi Gras" font is a throwback to the original Mardi Gras, which had the same font on the side of the ship. Here it is on a vintage brochure. I think it's neat that they are paying tribute to their heritage.
