  1. How about the Horizon? Thank you!
  2. We will be sailing in October so there are MLB playoffs going on at that time. The sports bar will be packed and I will be there. Also, football. Make fun of me, I really don't care. I can enjoy my cruise and my sports. If some of you don't watch the sports, so be it. That is your choice but don't make fun of the people who do. That will leave room for those who do in the sports bar. And I am a woman! Elaine
  3. We are also on the waitlist for early dining on the Horizon October 6th. There are 9 of us and everyone except 2 people are confirmed. My TA said she thought that it would be changed by the time we sail. Well, good old Carnival has almost 8 weeks to do or I will be visiting the maitre'd. Does anyone know the email for the maitre'd for the Horizon on that cruise? Thanks, Elaine
  4. I booked a cabana in Grand Turk back in November for our sailing on the Horizon in October and I paid $129.99 so they have gone up a lot since then. Elaine
  5. I had already taken care of the check-in for our cruise a long time ago. My mother-in-law called me this weekend and said she wanted to check on which card she had used for Sail &Sign and it wouldn't let her in. I checked and sure enough, gotta wait until July 8th. No big deal. I was told that one of the main reasons for the change was so many people were checking back in and making changes so they figured that 90 days out they would have less changes being made. Of course they are not married to my husband. He changes his mind at least a dozen times within a week of the cruise.
  6. We're sailing on the October 6, 2018 Horizon cruise. I did our online check-in some time ago but yesterday my mother-in-law forgot which credit card she had used for the Sail & Sign and tried to go in and check it. It stated that she would have to check back on July 8th to be able to view this even though we have everything filled out and our check-in time set. No big deal. She can wait until July 8th.
  7. We loved the wings on the Vista. We ordered the caribbean jerk extra crispy and they were fantastic. I love my wings with a little crunch and they did them perfect. We ordered 2 baskets and a basket of fries. Great lunch!
  8. We were on deck 7 aft wrap for our Vista cruise and loved it. We will be sailing on the Horizon in October and decided to go with Deck 6 aft wrap since it has a couch. Those cabins are shaped different so that some seem larger than others. I believe that Deck 6 aft wrap and Deck 8 are larger inside. I may have it wrong for Deck 8 but I know for sure that Deck 6 is larger inside. We have a fairly large party going with us and wanted the couch for extra seating in our cabin.
  9. I would choose Lago Mar. We stay there every time we cruise out of either Ft. Lauderdale or Miami. They have a very nice private beach where you can go down and sit on the rocks and watch the cruise ships sail in and out of the port. I don't think they serve food or drink on the beach since the alcohol is not allowed. You may want to check with them.
  10. Oh, I forgot to say that the reservations were linked. I plan on letting my TA know what I was told by Carnival when she returns from her vacation. Elaine
  11. I was surprised that they were waitlisted. This will be my 21st cruise and I have personally known other groups of 8-12 people and none were waitlisted. I didn't go through Carnival to book our cruise, used a TA that I have been using for 10 years. She said for me to check the reservations every week to see if they made a change. Their reservation states "Early Dining-6:00pm (waitlisted). My TA has been on a European vacation and so I called Carnival and was told by a young lady that she couldn't do anything and if the reservation said the same thing at cruise time, speak with the maitre'd. I plan on doing that but still can't understand why they were waitlisted that far out. Elaine
  12. There will be 9 of us and they still waitlisted my father and mother-in-law. This will be our 20th anniversary and I booked everyone more than a year out and they still waitlisted them. This will be their first cruise and they are afraid they will be placed at a different table. We have the early seating. I can imagine with a party of 13 that the Anytime Dining would not be a good idea. Carnival did assure me that since everyone's dining reservations were linked, we would be at the same table but suggested that I check with the maitre'd when we board. Good luck!
