  1. I just returned from a cruise on breakaway(Feb 2019), It is a very nice ship. I really think Carnival has better food. The Breakaway has alot of "extra" pay restaurants and they make you think that if you dont pay, you are missing something. I have loved Carnival's brunch. I think the MDR on Carnival has better food as well. But as far as the buffet, Breakaway has everything you could possibly want. The rooms on the Breakaway are smaller than on Carnival is that makes a difference to you. You can order bottled water but you really dont need it. Their water tasted pretty good. You cannot take soda on board with you, they charge you 3.50 plus 20% gratutity for a coke. I dont do laundry on a cruise but their is no washing machines, you can send it to be cleaned.
  2. I just did breakaway and I am platinum on Carnival. The breakaway is much nice ship than Carnival. It is a mega ship but..............I love the seaday brunch on Carnival, I think Carnival has a better menu in the MDR. The rooms are smaller on NCL. Their shower is nice.
  3. We just did the 10day cruise 2/7 to 2/17/ That was my 30th cruise. You will like the Getaway a huge ship. But.....they will try to nickel and dime you to death. When you get to port, go to Erato port and stay in the left lane. It will lead you to the Julia Street Terminal. I am assuming you are going to park at the Whale's Tale lot? It is the closest parking to the Julia Street Terminal. It is 20.00 per day Any questions feel free to ask Carol
  4. The closest parking lot that is walking distance to the Breakaway is the Whales Tale. It is 20.00 per day. The best way to go is go like you are going to Erato Terminal and drive right past it. No problems'
  5. You need to make paragraphs. I am sure your review has so much good information. But too hard to read
  6. Contact Victor Bodden tours
  7. Air Freshner for the bathroom, an alarm clock, empty water bottles to fill up at lido deck and put in the frig, extention cord, coffee creamer - the little flavored ones
  8. Nola does have VIP Lounge for Priority boarders. You probably walked right past it. NOLA, you get your key, etc and then come back to VIP Lounge
  9. The rules are 12 pack per person and must be carried on by the individual
  10. The Order to get on the boat is: Diamond Platinum and then FFTF Same way to get off the boat Diamond Platinum and then FFTF
  11. The Triumph does not have refrigerators and never has. The Triumph does NOT serve escargot on five day cruises. Yes it is older You probably cruised during out of school. The lines, oh well were are you going anyways??
  12. I just got this answered. I booked Early Saver which includes the price drop guarantee. My TA price matched the Casino rate and I got 50.00 plus the lower rate and I can price match again. It all depends on how you book to begin with.
  13. Wanted to vent a little, and I think that it needs to be said. Well my hubby and me(25 plus cruises) love the benefit of self disembarkment whenever the cruise ship docks at its end. We always get up early clear out of the room and like to get down to the "assigned" area to wait for the ship to be cleared for disembarkment by customs. We have been platinum members for quite a while. What is wrong with people who saunder down to the area at the last minute and think that they can stand in front of you and get off the ship before you??? We are all adults right? Well today I decided that I would make them famous by taking their pictures and telling them I was gonna post their pictures as line cutters. I dont think you should have to even have a conversation with adults, cause they know. One of the line cutters told me that she had it done to her before and she didnt like it. Why would she do that then?? Are people getting more stupid?? Thanks
