  1. We've sailed previously on the Spirit back in 2009 and 2011, when she was in San Diego doing the Mexican Riviera runs. We've also sailed on the Miracle in 2013 and 2020 for her Hawaii out of Long Beach and her Panama Canal full transit from San Diego to Miami. We love the layout of the Spirit Class ships. Very easy to navigate. We also like the Aft Wrap Vista Suites on the Spirit Class ships as well. Hopefully, we will be able to visit Sydney either before or after our cruise(s) on the Spirit from Brisbane. It is one of our bucket list items.
  2. We are tentatively scheduled for a B2B2B Australian cruise on the Spirit in June 2023 (4, 11, 18 June)....Looking forward to it. One of our bucket list items. Hope things have fully settled by then.
  3. We have had Vista Suites on both the Miracle and the Spirit. Normally, Decks 6 or 7 (both Port and Starboard sides). Loved the layouts for both of those decks on the Spirit Class ships. We recently (Feb 2020) were in Vista Suite 5295 on the Miracle, during her San Diego to Miami Panama Canal Full Transit. It is indeed a narrower stateroom and does not have the room/section dividers. Seemed a bit claustrophobic, compared to the other Vista Suites. We will (hopefully-COVID permitting) be cruising to Alaska for 11 days on the Miracle, in August 2021 out of San Francisco, this time on Deck 4
  4. No. We just made the reservation (just like the old days). We will pay on board with our S&S at the time of the dinner.
  5. Took your advice and used the email address you provided. There are currently three (3) dinner seating times available for our November 2020 sailing on the Panorama: 5:30PM, 7:15PM and 9:00PM. We were able to make our reservations. The process only took a total of four (4) days. Two days to respond to our initial email request to see if there were any available slots and then two days to receive our confirmation. Pretty quick turnaround time. Thank you again for your original post regarding this. It was most helpful.
  6. Thank you for the information! Did you ask for a specific date and time in your email request to them?
  7. Are you only able to make your WiFi plan purchase once you are on board? I'm not finding an option to pre-purchase it on the Disney Cruise website, under our reservation or under the on board gifts section.
  8. What was the email address that you used, when you made your Bonsai Teppanyaki reservation for the Panorama?
  9. The terminal opens at 10:30 AM on cruise days. Access to the terminal is by status/check-in time (Priority, FTTF, etc). Wedding parties are normally allowed into the terminal first before anyone else.
  10. According to CCL, there is a "glitch" in the system with respect to being able to make online reservations for any of the specialty restaurants on board the Panorama. The only exception being the new Carnival Kitchen venues, these are all currently available for online reservations. We are sailing on the Panorama on 14 November 2020 and were able to make all of our Carnival Kitchen reservations. The CCL folks we talked to indicated it may take several weeks to address/fix the online reservation issue for the traditional Specialty Restaurants (JiJI's. Teppanyaki, Chef's Table, Steakhouse an
  11. We sailed on the Miracle in a Vista Suite back in 2013 and are also booked in two different Vista Suites on the Miracle, in Feb 2020 and Aug 2021. Both have priority boarding, among other amenities. I checked an amenity description of a Vista Suite on the Pride and provided an image of it here (go to the Deck Plans for the Pride, select your stateroom and review what you get), and it also shows priority check-in and boarding, in addition to the other amenities we have. If you have questions/concerns, contact CCL and ask them directly. Hope this helps. Have a great cruise!
  12. Here is the breakout (according to the current Deck Plans for the Mardi Gras) for the maximum number of passengers that can be booked into a given AFT Excel Suite by stateroom: 9501: 5 9504: 3 10495: 3 10492: 2 11501: 3 11506: 2 12503: 4 12502: 2 14517: 2 14498: 5 15495: 2 15478: 2
  13. Depending upon the Deck and Stateroom you selected, the Excel Aft Suites can hold 2, 3, 4, or 5 passengers. The easiest way to tell is to go to the CCL web site, select the Mardi Gras and then go to her deck plans. Once there, select the respective deck(s) the Excel Aft Suites are located on and then select the particular room you are wanting to look at. You will get a listing of the maximum amount of passengers that particular stateroom will hold, along with a variety of other information regarding the stateroom amenities, etc. Hope this helps, Enjoy!
  14. You are correct. U74 is the room I was referring to as adjoining ours. My error.
  15. Currently on the Imagination, Grand Suite U70. There IS in fact a divider that can be opened between our GS and the adjacent GS (U72). Hope this helps.
