  1. Probably our last 15 cruises have been Premier/Ultra. They USED to be really great and they USED to make us feel at least a little appreciated. Like the OP has stated, they are not very good now and the perks are pretty weak. Our next cruise with Carnival isn’t until January and we’ve purposefully booked a non-premier cruise (although they seem to make many of the cruises premier nowadays, so it’s always possible this changes). But we are actually looking forward to going on a regular cruise for a change. I can get a lot better return on investment and comps with any of the nearby land based casinos.
  2. This is perfect and exactly what I will do. I really appreciate you taking the time to assist!
  3. Haha, we are very fortunate and are happy to be able to do this. Great information, thanks very much!
  4. Thanks for sharing your experience. My daughter just recently moved into her own place and works in DC with me. I am familiar with her ability to take time off and have tried to gauge her interest in the January cruise surreptitiously. I’m more concerned with the actual booking and having it in her name vice my name and how that works.
  5. Do you remember what the playlist production shows were? We will be on the Magic again in January and are really hoping some of the shows have been updated. Thanks!
  6. I’ve cruised Carnival since the 90s and have taken cruises with my children plenty of times. My kids are grown now and my wife and I would like to surprise them with a cruise gift at Christmas. We are already booked for a January cruise and would like to give my daughter and her fiancé the same cruise. But the cruise seems to be selling fast and I’d like to go ahead and purchase it now and make it a surprise for her. What is the best way to do this? Can I just book it in my name (even though I’m already booked) and change it to hers after Christmas? Am I eligible to book it with discounts I am entitled to (casino, military, etc)? She has a VIFP number already from her many cruises with us before she was an adult. If if anyone has experience doing something similar, I’d appreciate any insight you may have.
  7. Just got this in our room this morning. We don’t watch much TV in the room but im guessing this new lineup will please some and upset others. Looks like some of the kids channels (Cartoon Network, boomerang) are gone as well as the 10 CNN channels.
