  1. I was only going on what I had read from other posters , We don't think its worth it for us , as we may have the odd day of having a few drinks , I doubt it will average out to many a day , I don't drink sodas or the coffees although the other half does . I may have a drink in the day , but 4 out of 7 days are port days . I am just aiming to hope I dont exceed what I would have paid if I had bought the package .....I will however cry everytime I have to pay over $12 for a drink though !
  2. I found the dream was fine inside , she just looks a bit worse for wear on the outside lol ....however she looks a lot better than the huge block of flat style cruise ships . We were moored up next to PO's Oriana in January , I think she may be older but she sparkled I cant remember the lifts being much of an issue , except when coming back on board
  3. Although we really enjoyed the dream last New Year , we found the music acts around the ship not very good tbh although the Broadway show team were amazing , there is limited seating as well which was a bit of a pain . I think they may be a bot bored
  4. I am sure break even is much higher then 4 drinks
  5. Cant help thinking the cruise would be better if not sharing a room with MIL!
  6. Im on it too there will be 2 couples first time carnival cruise
  7. Some years ago there was a report in the news of someone commiting suicide by setting them selves of fire , it seemed that for a period of time afterwards that there was a few suicides by the same method .Now we are seeing reports about people jumping overboard, it may be people who are suicidal are influenced , for want of a better word , to choose a method that has been brought to their attention Very sad , you have to be in a very very place to do this
  8. There is nothing worse than hanging around until your cabin is ready, I much prefer to be able to dump my stuff off in the cabin and then go exploring. We have picked the latest time we could to be honest we would have preferred it to be later to make our drive down more relaxed If you book onto hotels you can rarely check in before 3pm
  9. Why should we be restricted as to where we can eat ? All the eating areas should cater for vegetarians , and provide as many choices .I have looked at the menu examples for mdr and there doesn't seem to be a lot of vegetarian choice , and it's all very well saying eat at the buffet but would prefer to eat with the rest of my party !
  10. Thank you Our first cruise was on RCI mariner of the seas and we hated it ......we dont know why , maybe it was too big ? All our subsequent cruises have been on smaller old and according to some reviews about to to sink under all the rust and we have loved them Celebrity Millenium, P&O Oceania , Ventura , Acardia ( didn't like) And Marella / Tui discovery and dream So we are far from fussy lol
  11. We will be going on our first Carnival cruise in January , on the Legend and I am curious why this ship is rarely mentioned on here
  12. We have got the latest check in time possible, we will be driving from St Augustine so we will set out a bit earlier
  13. It counts as the best trip we have ever done . We started in Fairbanks ( 3 flights from the UK!) And did a DIY trip over a week to Seward to pick up the cruise
  14. This may be a stupid question but I am assuming its ok to turn up late ?
  15. (Humpback whale in Alaska, sea otters again in Alaska .Orca's jumping in the wake of the ship while sailing inside passage to Vancouver Then of of course the bears should off the ship
  16. As a vegetarian that menu fills me with joy ... Not !! I will be very unhappy with that lack of choice
  17. On NCL everyone in the same cabin also has to purchase the drink package ? Every cruise line I have been on ( unless all inclusive ) has the same rule
  18. Our very first cruise was an RCI carribean cruise we hated it so much we said we would never cruise again lol ( cant put our finger on why btw ).Cozumal was the highlight of the cruise
  19. We haven't cruised Carnival yet ( first cruise Jan 2020 ). We almost always eat breakfast in the MDR , every cruise we have been on the buffets aren't the most pleasant places to eat
  20. Traditionally there would have been less rooms per steward Or doesnt that count ?
  21. We did a cruise on Marella Dream to the Canary Islands for New Year . The Dream has to be one of the shabbiest looking ship from the outside lol. At one time we were parked next to P&O Oriana , which I believe is older , but immaculate looking We thought it was quite funny ( would hate to go on one of the huge ships ). The Dream is nicely decorated in the public rooms , our outside cabin creaked a lot and had a rusty ceiling by the door , but that really doesn't matter to me , loved the ship
  22. Fountain drinks are much cheaper to produce , they just use large containers of syrup and water after all. There is a huge mark up in the finished product and thats not counting the extra packaging costs and cost of storing all the cans
