  1. Went there years ago. Would not bother going back, waste of time and money.
  2. Better have karaoke by our November cruise!
  3. I have no concerns at all, and being a diver only use my own equipment.
  4. They sure are detectable. My hip is titanium and I always set off metal detectors. Your screws probably are just too small to register.
  5. Those cards are useless. I have one for my artificial hip and TSA just laughs at them.
  6. We're booked on Carnival, Princess, and Viking this year, 2022, and 2023. Six cruises for now, maybe more in 2023.
  7. We're booked for October 30th on Carnival, November 30th on Princess, and March 24th next year on Princess. I'm hoping they all happen!
  8. The amount I'm willing to pay? Nothing.
  9. I have no problem with a tracking device. We'll be diving, so I don't think it will do too well underwater.
  10. Never had any interest in participating one before, sure won't now.
  11. We're booked on her for October 30th. Have been wanting to do a Halloween cruise for several years now, so I hope this one goes. Our other one (on Miracle) out of San Diego was cancelled.
  12. I have so many, but one will always be very special to me. My fiancée and I were on our pre-wedding cruise on Carnival Legend, which was doing a repositioning cruise to Australia. He used to be a professional musician and we loved karaoke. We had a special song and on the last night, I got up to sing it to him. Halfway through the song, something went wrong with the screen and it stopped displaying the lyrics. I knew the Spanish lyrics, but hadn't fully memorized the English portion. Russ got up, grabbed the other microphone, and went down on one knee in front of me to sing them to me. After the cruise, we flew to Fiji where we got married on the beach, and then did an underwater ring ceremony (both divers). I lost him four years later, three days before our fourth wedding anniversary.
  13. Thanks! We're on Deck 7, the space looks great to me. Smaller than I'm used to on Spirit class, but close enough to work. The Havana aft room would have been horrible.
  14. It absolutely is. Until you dive and are an underwater photographer, you have no idea how much stuff there is. I prefer Spirit class and it's the only class I ever have sailed on with Carnival. I always get the aftwrap suite on Deck 4. Can't beat that! There were no rooms available in the Havana area, and I would never get an interior room regardless of what the perks are. I rarely hang out at the pool anyway. Give me a room with a large balcony so we can dry our equipment, have drinks, and watch the waves and I'm happy.
  15. I decided to go with the Ocean Suite for the room and the sofa bed, thanks!
  16. Can anyone tell me which room is larger on Panorama? Also, do either of these cabins have a sofa bed? Our Miracle cruise out of San Diego was cancelled today and we're looking for a replacement. I love the aft view, but room for our diving gear also is important. Thanks!
  17. Booked with a friend for the Southern Caribbean on November 30th. Can't wait! Just got our plane tickets yesterday using our flight credit from last year.
  18. I ended up writing a letter of complaint to Carnival because there a couple more issues on board. I was given an apology and about a $300 credit for our next cruise.
  19. My worst experience was during pre-boarding--the cruise was wonderful! My late husband, his best friend, and I went on a 13-day Journeys cruise along the Mexican Riviera on Carnival Miracle. It was raining when we got there and their machines for check-in were all outside and not functioning well. My husband was having physical problems and so we were told to go in the Handicapped line. We waited and waited, and I noticed the regular line was going a lot faster than ours. There was a jerk at the front of our line with an older relative and they hadn't filled out any of their paperwork and so the staff was doing it then. I looked around and saw a lot of elderly, disabled people and I blew a gasket. I walked up to the front and said what's with making all the handicapped passengers stand here in the rain while you're getting everything else through? Why not let us check in with one of the other machines? They looked shocked, but all of sudden we were taken to another machine. I had a number of people in our line thanking me. We finally get into the dome, where it was freezing (it was February 1st). We had priority boarding, but again were being forced to wait for others who weren't since we were sitting in the handicapped area. Getting my husband a wheelchair was another struggle, and I had ordered it. They told me he can go walk over and get one (in the rain). I asked why can't I go get one? Nope, only him. I swear I almost ripped the idiot's head off. We finally got on board, but it was a fight all the way. Great cruise from then on!
