  1. My first cruise was shortly after 9/11. So many people cancelled cruises that Carnival bumped us up to a bigger boat, better itinerary, and compensated us for the different travel costs. They just combined sailings across the board.
  2. I just got off the Glory and I could've sworn that he said that this was his ship for the next few years. That he had just signed on for another 3 or something. Maybe your cruise is his break?
  3. In our last room, (spa balcony on Glory) we actually didn't have either. We didn't notice it until a couple days in after remarking how much more room we seemed to have than usual and wondered if the rooms were bigger. The table was missing! We did not miss it and if it is possible I would prefer not to have one anyway. The only downside is not being able to sit and have our cereal there, but by the end of the week the table turns into a big stack of junk anyway.
  4. Sorry! Me and my 13 year old will be on the boat with you! 🙂
  5. My kid is about to turn platinum, has always cruised without dad, never had a letter. Never been asked for a letter. At customs they ask her, "Is this your mom? DId you have fun?" and that is it. There is a lot of fear mongering here, and a good bit of bad information as well. You cannot be denied reentry to the US for starters. Unless you are specifically waging war against the US or engaging in espionage, you cannot be denied reentry to the US. Taking your own child out of the country is NOT kidnapping and a noncustodial father raising a stink at the port could find themselves in much
  6. It is not for me. I am a heavy soda drinker but have been very disappointed with the bb program. They are pouring hot cans of soda over a cup of ice, instantly watering them down and flattening them. I bring my Yeti and it already has ice in it but even the best insulated cup can't perform miracles against a soda can that has been sitting out on the lido deck all day. Yes, you can go down to the main deck lobby and get a fountain soda, and I Have when I have the bb program, but then if I am trekking across the ship to get a decent soda I really may as well just go half the distance and get
  7. Gift cards are never eligible for the 5% red card savings at Target. Unless they have recently changed this.
  8. Thank you everyone for the responses! I just assumed by cpap was a 3 prong plug but to be honest I never even checked it. This is a huge weight off my shoulders.
  9. Any advice on traveling with two people who need Cpaps? I know to carry them on, and that I can buy distilled water from somewhere (gift shop? guest services?). But the way our room layout is is what has me confused. How will we plug in 2 cpaps? Obviously an extension cord. But what kind of extension cord is long enough, has 2+ outlets, and won't be a major trip hazard throughout the cruise? I called carnival and was told to bring a power strip. I asked her what the regulations were on it and she said it just needs the original sticker to still be on the cord. Loo
  10. Agree to disagree. Any time you are paying for a cruise, you could argue that you are paying a premium price. I mean, there are good sales but to suggest that either paying for a cruise is chump change or that if you pay less you should expect less is kinda elitist. Besides that, they were talking about interior doors, not strictly interior cabins, and all rooms, even the "premium" ones have interior doors...
  11. But, if you are staying on board, a 1 day refund plus $100? I hear plans are still to hit all 3 ports. Are the crew angsty or is it business as usual on board (despite the additional meal crowds?)
  12. Jan 19th sailing has been sold out for a little while now. A few weeks at least.
  13. For sure. Because they aren't specific to the spa, they are for the gym as well, which is free for adults to use.
  14. Nothing? Not even if you had the flu like symptoms?! That is a little unsettling. I mean, I know anyone who feels ill would lie on it anyway but they didn't even ask?
  15. Thank you, that is exactly the info I was looking for. I assumed since they were duty free they may be a steep discount but if it's pretty much all the same we will just get one here 🙂
