  1. I flew to Hawaii in June. I had to pay $200 for a rapid test. Hoping to find somewhere that doesn't cost an arm and a leg for our October cruise.
  2. I am one who prefers mornings. I can turn down my own bed, I just don't want to make it... lol. So, they can make it up in the mornings and I will turn it down myself at night..... or in the afternoon for a nap! 🙂
  3. Thanks for posting this. I have yet to get the email. I only knew about it when a friend who is cruising with us saw it on his itinerary last night. UGHHH... we are on the Mardi Gras on 10/23 and Grand Turk is getting replaced with Nassau... UGH. Very happy to be cruising again, but not happy with Nassau. I think that will be a day we stay onboard!! Lots to see and do on a new ship!!
  4. Yes and the tub has seating also. The "hardlooking" lounge chairs are heated. And yes, they have steam rooms as well as a dry sauna. I know on the Dream, they had aromatherapy steam rooms also. For us, its a nice getaway for an hour or two. I try to go at least once a day. Pam
  5. It's a large hot tub without all the people and no kids.. lol. My friend and I leave our husbands for a few hours and go soak in the tub and then lounge in the spa. It's nice to relax, especially after a long day at port. Hubs and I are in an ocean suite, so I will purchase a week long pass.
  6. We are booked on the Mardi Gras in October. We are wanting to book the spa, specifically the thalassotherapy pool. Does anyone know if the pool is included in the thermal suite package? TIA!
  7. I read that the cost for a day, for non suite guests is $500 for up to 5 people. Our cruisemates and I may try to book for a day, that will be $250 per couple and consider it a "shore" excursion!! 🙂
  8. Our passports expired in June. I was dragging my feet (not sure why) but then I heard about the delay in getting them back. Ended up costing me a lot more money so they could be expedited... lol. Anyway, I sent our passort renewal info in on 7/15. I checked today and they say they are in process as of 7/20. I also sent off for a new birth certificate (mine is so old its falling apart). So, if by chance my passport doesn't make it, I will have my BC, my marriage certificate and my DL. I will be good to go!!!
  9. We, along with 6 of our friends, are cruising on the Mardi Gras in October. Last night, I went in and tried to book the steakhouse but was unable to. Our cruise is in in about 12-13 weeks. Does anyone know when the reservations open up? Thanks in advance!
  10. At least you are all getting offers. I had booked an Ultra and it got cancelled. I booked another Ultra and it got cancelled. Now I am not getting Ultra offers. 😞
  11. We are due to sail on the Mardi Gras in October and joined the Roll Call month ago. We are counting down the days and hoping this cruise isn't cancelled.
  12. It's there. We are sailing on the Oct 23 sailing, so I just doubled checked. Its listed under the Carnival Magic.
  13. Thanks to all who responded. After talking to my hubby, I have decided to splurge! We currently have a cove balcony booked on the Mardi Gras in October. I am going to call and transfer the money I paid for our April cruise to our October cruise and upgrade to a suite! I will still have some money left over and OBC from the cancellation. It's a win win for me. Now..... if we can cruise!!
  14. I just got email confirmation that the April sailing of the Magic is cancelled. This is the 5th cruise cancelled for me and was to be my first Ultra cruise as well as my first Platinum cruise. Like most everyone else, I am bummed. I have another cruise booked in October, and I could transfer the money to that cruise. But I am not sure I want to. If I do, not only will my cruise be paid for but I will have over $1100 in OBC PLUS the $600 in OBC from the cancellation. That is $1700. That is another cruise or a real good time in the casino... lol. I am at a loss. 😞 I just don't know what to do at this point.
  15. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't November cruises already cancelled?
  16. Thanks to all who answered. We are still on the fence as to whether we are going to cancel or not. We do have a plan B decided upon. Like others, this is my 3rd cruise to be cancelled this year (whether by me or the cruise line) and I NEED A VACATION!!!!! LOL
  17. I am curious. If we want to cancel and get a full refund, how long is it taking now? Thinking about getting the refund instead of moving it to our April cruise. Honestly, I could use the money to take a land vacation in November instead of the cruise.
  18. I have a peanut allergy and have had NO problems at all. In the dining room, you can preorder your meals for the next evening. It's all very easy. If you want to do Sea Day brunch, let your dining room servers know and they will let you pre order that meal also. I stay away from most baked goods and most oriental food (just in case they use peanut sauce) and I have never had a problem. Pizza and Guys Burgers are fine. Dining room is great. Buffet use common sense. If you are unsure you can ask a server at the buffet and they will get the chef for you.
  19. My November 14 Horizon cruise out of Miami wasn't showing up a few weeks ago. Today, I checked and it is. That gives me hope we will be sailing! It will be my first as a platinum, first Ultra and first on the Horizon!!
  20. We are cruising on the Horizon out of Miami on November 14. Until recently, it was blacked out and not allowing folks to book. Today I looked and its there for booking. Looks promising!!!
  21. Not if I put the name as TBD. There is no name to change. I usually add it before final payment date.
  22. Call and ask to upgrade. Upgrade calls are few and far between. I am platinum and have been upgraded once.
  23. Everytime I book for hubby and myself, I always leave his name as TBD and add it just before final payment. That way if he pisses me off, I can take my BFF!!! hahahaha... just kidding!! But no really, I have done that on the last 3 I booked. He just tells me he is along for the ride.. lol.
