  1. Well, I'll be darned! Did not know there was another one in August 2023. But, thank you, you're right, it was the August one that I saw. When did that one appear?
  2. It appears that cabins of all kinds are now available on the Carnival site for this cruise. Good luck!
  3. We always did David's on the first night because that seemed to us like the weakest night for the MDR menu. But the menus I've been seeing lately actually look pretty good for the first night. Glad to know the menus will be available ahead of time. It used to be that the menus were visible maybe the night before on the cabin TV, but the last time I was on the Pride, that entire function was gone from the TV. This will be my first time cruising with the hub app. I have been using it at home. What do you find most useful? What other functions will be available in the terminal, or onboard? For instance, can you contact Guest Services or check in for Your Time Dining?
  4. Majestic and beautiful and I'm not talking about the scenery!
  5. It feels so good to talk about the things we all LOVE about cruising, instead of all the issues of the past almost two years. Where do we eat? What shows should we go to? Which cabin to choose?
  6. I did not know that the maitre d' could do that and I've only been on the Pride 6 times! It's only the planner in me that wants to reserve the steakhouse though I have reserved it onboard before. Usually as I enter the atrium the David's staff approaches me. I guess I look hungry.
  7. That has been my theme for about two years, as I keep believin' that the next cruise will happen. When the cruise departs on October 31, I won't need to keep believin'. It will be the real thing. I may just be singing and dancing in the MDR myself!
  8. Thanks for your answer! There is usually one day of the week on a 7 day cruise where the menu in MDR just is not as appealing. I can usually find a 7 day menu ahead of the cruise and reserve the Steakhouse for that night. unable to find a recent example of the 14 day menu. I guess our decision about when to do David's will be day to day based on what we find posted outside the MDR!
  9. We are looking forward to our Pride Journey on October 31. This will be our first Carnival Journey and longest cruise so far. Are the Dining Room menus 7 day menu done twice, or is there a different rotation for the longer cruise? We try to plan which day(s) we go to David's Steakhouse. Thanks!
  10. First, I would like to thank the OP for alerting me to this cruise. I was able to book today. My question is how did Carnival get the word out about this cruise? Was it first announced on John Heald's page? I have never had to scramble so much to book!
  11. We missed the excitement by one week! Booked the September 5 cruise instead. But we will be driving by our favorite ship on 95S today at the Fort McHenry Tunnel. Can't wait until Halloween for our first 14 day, when she repositions to Tampa. Enjoy, Intrepid, enjoy!
  12. Holland America is offering a cruise from Fort Lauderdale on November 3 to Half Moon Cay (Bahamas) to Key West to Fort Lauderdale. The one foreign port that makes the cruise legal is Half Moon Cay, part of the Bahamas, which is an independent country.
  13. Now that Royal is requiring testing for vaccinated passengers for cruises over 5 days, I expect a change in Carnival policy. So the hoops and worries of the Pride 14 day cruise may become something we can all experience.
  14. Given that Royal is now requiring similar testing 24-72 hours before embarkation for 7 day cruises and the changing COVID Delta variant situation, maybe we Carnival cruisers should all be looking at how we might meet these expectations. I hope it does not come to pass, but.......
  15. I have to wonder from what time on Sunday you are supposed to count back 72 hours. Sailing time? Boarding time? If I get a test Thursday morning and then my boarding time turns out to be 1 PM, is that too long to be allowed to board?
