  1. My hubby & I love the Aft Cabins because of the relative quietness, sure can't get lost trying to find the Cabin πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ and when we can afford them the Aft Wrap's are da BEST!! I book us in the Aft even for Insides, just have come to feel comfy there in the back. πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ›³ Bobbi
  2. Yeah, I'm sure if anyone witnessed a guest using this machine inappropriately, it would be scrubbed down immediately. Doesn't mean that gross mishandling of food {Buffet, for example}, hasn't happened right before I get to that piece of cake. But, IF I saw the "act" happen, ewww .... To me seeing that kids mouth up on the spigot "enjoying" the creamy treat, well, I can't ignore it. What I find disgusting, is my "subjective" food opinion. Enjoy!🍦🍦
  3. PSA (IMO 😏): I've posted this before. After viewing a kid putting his mouth against the spigo of the Ice Cream/Frozen Dessert/Frozen Yogurt, I will never get a treat at these things again. I just can't "undo what I saw"...🍦🀒 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  4. I'm an Aft person too! Especially after having a Port Hole on the lowest deck. Yikes! My husband and mine's favorite is the AFT WRAP! Even over the Suites. But, to each his own. πŸ›³πŸ˜
  5. Hi, We've cruised in practically all Cabins except Presidential & Guarantee. I thought once I had Balconies I couldn't do an Inside. Turns out I can and have a great trip too! For my little 4 day cruises out of my local port, Long Beach on the Inspiration, I've been booking Inside. The cabin has a faux window area with curtains πŸ˜‚. Today I booked a cruise for next month on the Inspiration. I paid the extra dollars to get the window (for my Mom), but if it's just me. I'd rather save the money towards a 7 Day with my sweet hubby. I'm a non-drinker now, almost 7 years, my hubby almost 15! πŸ€—πŸ€—. So no comment on Cheers. Do what makes sense to you. πŸ›³πŸ›³ Bobbi
  6. Hi, This is a solo cruise for me as well. That's why I thought I'd book the upper/lower. Well, I talked with my husband, he said why don't I just go for the O.V. I was offered. So, I'll cross my fingers and do the Upsell. Now, I hope folks don't come by this Thread and say OH NO, that Cabin is horrible!! 😱😊😊 Bobbi
  7. Ok will do ! πŸ€”πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
  8. I popped Γ΄ver to Carnival and my cruises. They offered the Upsell to both sections of my B2B, so that's good! A quick note: ONE time we stayed in a Porthole Cabin on Inspiration/Imagination?? .... thing is the cabin was all the way forward. The anchor, giant metal things, Whatever was so incredibly noisy, I would never do that again, even if they offered it Free! That's probably why this Upsell rides solely on the noise level. So, if you have actually stayed in cabin R228 or to the cabin to the right or left, I'd really appreciate your feedback. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  9. Hi, Thanks guys! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚. I was hoping that someone had feedback on the noise? I don't know what is Below Riveria Deck. Assuming Crew Quarters?? The cost is $58 total. 🌻🌻
  10. Hi, I'm sailing in February 2020 on Carnival Inspiration. We recently {Feb. 2019} stayed in O.V. On the UPPER Deck Aft, which was just fine. Our preference is the Aft BTW. However, never sailed on the Rivera Deck. Currently booked B2B U169. Looking for opinions, before I respond. 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  11. As an 'ol married lady of 32 years. My B.C. also doesn't have my maiden name on it. So, to play this out .... technically would I need my Marriage Certificate? IF it's just a question of different last names. What if I just got married recently ..... first time... just saying. IDK, Elaine, just made me question the Policy .... 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  12. Hi Deepfry, Our son, Marky Mark/Fun Squad just finished his 6 month Contract this morning on the Dream. As I write he'll be Landing at LAX in a half hour. I cruised on the DREAM back in early April with him. I really πŸ’œπŸ’œ that Ship! I'd definitely go back on her.πŸ›³ I hope you had a fun time! 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  13. Hi, SO! I'm replying because I said I would. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ The man I spoke to didn't see FTTF on his screen & didn't know why they weren't offering it. He put me on hold, came back and told me again, he just didn't know why FTTF wasn't available. His advice to me? Keep calling & keep looking till it becomes available. Kept repeating that advice. That's it on my search! 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  14. Hi, I'm booked on Inspiration -- February 2020. The suggestion here on the board was to check daily, check at "off" times too. I have been doing just that... obsessively. So, thanks for the suggestion to call Carnival. It certainly can't hurt, right? Will call tomorrow & then check back here on their answer. Wish me luck. 🌻🌻 Bobbi
  15. To piggyback on Dicecatt suggestion of the Westin in the Marina. The grounds/pools/ food was all wonderful when we vacationed here. They have a Condo Resort area on the property. Their pool was open for us to use. But, we preferred the quieter adult pool area of the Hotel Resort. And, again, just had to note there were more Vendors here than at the Hyatt Ziva location. Have a great day in PV wherever you choose! 🌻🌻 Bobbi
