  1. So much misinformation in this thread. NOTE: HE DOES NOT HAVE A SPA CABIN! He has a cabin located on the Spa deck. Conquest class ships like VALOR do NOT have spa cabins. No Amenities, nothing special, just a normal cabin on the deck that has the name "SPA".
  2. On the valor, there are no spa cabins. You may have a cabin on the spa deck, but it is not a spa category cabin with amenities.
  3. The Wagyu is a flat iron steak. We did it once, and never again.
  4. Liked: Metal Picture Frames Cooler Beach Bags Cooler Backpack Small Black Bags Bluetooth Speaker (Kids LOVED THIS) Game Sets Tervis Tumblers Packing Cubes Blankets Charger Cross Bag Coffee & Mug Headphones (Kids LOVED THIS) Yeti like White Cup *Love This* Night Light *LOVE This too* Gym Bag Not so much: Lanyard (Only because its white....make that carnival blue, and it would have been a win) Crock Rubber Visor Baseball Hat Stationary Kit Probably others, but most I've really enjoyed.
  5. A bit of clarification. Each of the systems are all branded for the company they are representing. However, often times some/all of the groups of customers are bidding on the same things. ie. My citieasydeals account has been around for YEARS and has a couple million points in it.
  6. @CABO BOB As others have said, CitiBank, Allstate, AARP, and formerly Verizon use the same company that owns & operates their rewards program websites, Deluxe Financial Services, LLC dba Deluxe Rewards. I would bet there are other companies too, some like citi have been doing this for a decade. Thats why you find people with millions of points. The reason
  7. I'll add my name to this list of those that are stuck. Was planning on purchasing cards for my cruise in 21 days, but if this isn't resolved quickly it won't happen.
  8. While it would be cool to run it like a typical restaurant, I'm not sure that is even possible in the ship dining rooms. They assembly line everything just to get thousands of meals out at a time. Even things like steaks are not cooked to order. So many of each temperature are available for pickup. The only cook to order is the food allergy/special dining needs.
  9. For me, and my family, we typically order additional items (app/entree/or dessert) typically to try something we wouldn't order if we were paying for it. Found some new favorites this way that I wouldn't have otherwise tried. Lobster night, I'll order two if they are small.. Thanks for this, I was denied the request early on with American Table (ironically on Vista & Horizon) so perhaps it was because the history wasn't there? I'll try again. This is EXACTLY one of the huge trademarks of cruising. My kids used to have servers bring out things to get them to tried. Funny thing was that when they brought it out and didn't tell them what it was, new favorites were found. I think its possible. Its an opportunity to monetize, so it wouldn't surprise me.
  10. Was this offered on the menu, or did you just ask your server for this and the request was accommodated? I'll be on Miracle next week, I would be overjoyed if that option has retuned.
  11. Prior to American Table the pasta dish was available as an appetizer size. That is no longer available.
  12. Wondered if any of the Carnival cruisers saw this article: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/3803/ "Holland America Line Tests 'Second Entree' Upcharge in Main Dining Room" ..."Over the years we have upgraded the menu, and we have experienced that guests occasionally order additional main courses they simply can't finish," a spokesperson for Holland America told Cruise Critic. "Holland America Line has made great efforts to reduce food waste and with this we can better determine if guests who order a second entree will truly enjoy it."... I am not trying to scare anyone or start any rumors. There is no indication that Carnival would do this. However, the wording rings very similar to the way other changes have been implemented before (such as staff served bacon, or the failed room service for a fee). This is a great tradition of cruising for us (trying something we wouldn't ordinarily try if we were paying) or enjoying that second tiny lobster of formal night on 6+ day cruises. Your thoughts?
  13. It is a ladder issue. We were able to get our steward to do it, and they shared one ladder over the sofa.
  14. Oh wow! :loudcry::loudcry::loudcry:Hate you came home to such a mess! Hope clean up is smooth. Take good care of you and your family. We'll be here waiting patiently when time permits.
  15. Hope you had a GREAT cruise! Please post fun times when you can. If its easier to email I can provide an address. Thanks in advance.
