  1. John Heald's page. And that is what it said. Passports are needed by cruise passengers to go ashore. Citizens of the USA and Canada have not always needed a passport. This is a fairly recent change
  2. Didn't see this elsewhere and apologize in advance if already posted. Per John Heald: "Officials in Martinique have informed us that all cruise visitors to the island must have a valid passport in order to go ashore. This requirement will be strictly enforced by local authorities. If you do not already have a passport, we encourage you to obtain one before your voyage."
  3. Can't find anything on Carnival's site about $50 deposits. (?)
  4. Or do what we did. Notify local police and send video clip by email. These cameras either record to cloud, hard drive, or you can take a 'screenshot'. These cameras aren't just for viewing in real time.
  5. Go to guest services to ask and they will say yes your cabin mate may go. In fact I have always been told that I may bring a guest to any party. I always ask if my traveling companion is not Platinum.
  6. Carnival will certainly require one depending upon the itinerary. Can you name a cruise line that requires a passport for everyone?
  7. And in some areas it may be illegal to remove rocks! Picture millions of visitors over time carting away things from the beach or surrounding areas. No, I am not talking about sea glass trash, or empty sea shells. Just take a moment and find out the laws before you go. https://bangordailynews.com/2014/07/27/news/hancock/supervisory-park-ranger-says-taking-rocks-from-acadia-an-increasing-and-illegal-problem/
  8. Yep it did. But they said they don't want 'stupid costumes in the dining hall' so we are all good to go!
  9. Tip if YOU want to and don't worry about what others do. But thank you for this morning's tipping thread. It has been almost 24 hours.
  10. and a few more details: https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4728
  11. As of now, the policy appears only to be in effect for some ships within the fleet. It could be one of their 'tests the waters' approach. They are known to back off quick if things are met with a lot of resistance.
  12. A supposed 100,000 signatures out of the over 300 million people in the US on a petition addressed to the President? Halloween is not a federal holiday and the President may suggest communities change their trick or treating but he has no power to change the date. It wouldn't matter anyway. The entire month of October is celebrated on the ships just as Christmas is from Thanksgiving on to New Years.
  13. I have always found in 20 cruises that the amount of OBC depicted on your documents is NOT the share holders benefit but other OBC that has been applied. Share holder's shows up after you board. Your mileage may vary but not by much. ☺️
  14. It will not show in the booking documents. PRINT your confirmation and take it with you. If there is an issue after boarding, and you can't access your email, they may not honor it. I have learned that lesson the hard way.
  15. Recently: Game of Thrones, Friends, Comedy Movie Quotes, Cartoons, All About Nothing, Name the Lyrics (they read lyrics and you guess song), Country Music Hits, Super Heroes.
