  1. Thinking about taking a cruise on Carnival's Miracle. What is the condition this ship is in--saw where it was built in 2004 and refurbished in 2015. Does it look old and worn?

  3. Don't we register our credit card when we check in with a person, for all of our onboard charges? Why do we need to re-register at a kiosk? Why do we need a PIN? My credit card company said there is no reason to use a PIN when you want to charge the amounts. PIN is only needed for cash advances or ATM's. I don't want our account to be a cash advance because interest accumulates as soon as the charge is put through. Who can help me with this?

    Embarkation

    We are sailing from Miami. I finally was able to get in touch with MSC and was told we could get inside the terminal and probably even check in by 12:00.

    Embarkation

    First time on MSC. Saw on our embarkation info that we are told not to try to embark before 2 p.m. Our hotel shuttle is scheduled to drop us off at around 12:30 p.m. Will we be able to get inside the terminal or will we have to wait outside until 2?
  6. I realize that--I should have specifically said the Caribbean at any time.
  7. Can anyone who has sailed to the Caribbean on Divina tell me what the main dining room times are for early seating and late seating. I've gotten different times from MSC. Their website says 6:00 and 8:30. An MSC agent I spoke to today said 5:30 and 7:45. Another site said 6:30 and 8:30.
  8. We've used the CCL stockholder credit for cruises on Holland, Princess and Carnival. Purchased 100 shares in 2011 for $30.49 per share and have gotten $1200 in OBC so far.
  9. We disembarked the Zaandam on July 2 and used the Port Valet service--we were flying on Southwest. A lot of passengers we talked to had the service, only those we happened to speak to that didn't have it were on Alaska Airlines.
  10. Just returned from this cruise and our stop in Victoria was cancelled because of high winds. The capt had to cancel because the ship couldn't get close because of the wind and currents. We were disappointed because we had never been there, but things happen. Otherwise, great cruise!
  11. Hoping for 70's but I think I've got cold and hot covered now. Also am packing a lightweight rain jacket. Thanks
  12. We're each bringing a light weight back pack just for this purpose. I agree, a backpack is easier than using a bag you have to carry in your hands.
  13. Thank you for that info. Getting anxious, never been to Alaska. I'm trying to figure out what clothes to pack--I guess I will go with layering.
  14. We will be on the Zaandam on June 18-July 2. Have enjoyed reading all of your posts. One question I have is, were you tendered into any of the ports? When I phoned and asked a Holland rep, she said we would be tendered to Icy Strait and Sitka but it doesn't show this on our itinerary.
  15. What is the location for these shuttles in Anchorage mentioned by "laughing husky"?
  16. Great to see all of these posts re activities and menus. How were you able to use the gluten free menu? Did you have to have all of your meals gluten free? Some of those selections looked more to my taste than the regular menu?
