    Cove Balcony on Breeze - Electrical Outlets

    There is just the one outlet on the desk you mentioned. Bring an approved power strip (must not have power surge protection) in carry on only. Bring your own extension cord with the CPAP machine. BTW, excellent cove balcony location. Bon Voyage!

    Ghost on the Triumph?

    When we were on Triumph a few years ago in cabin 2323, we heard a constant clanging noise from down below--like someone was hitting the hull with a metal object. It was loud and constant all night. Even our other family members in the next connecting cabin heard it--none of us could sleep. We complained again and again at Guest Services, but they kept dismissing it as wind noise or our imaginations. We could still hear it when the ship was docked at Mahogany Bay and then later that night after we were under way again. It finally stopped before the cruise ended, but we got no explanation from the crew. Probably that ghost !!!
  3. Is the Steakhouse chocolate sampler available anywhere else except the Steakhouse? For example, can you order the chocolate sampler in the Main Dining Room?

    Booking on board under the old program

    That's a good question. We were able to move our Vista cruise in 2018 to another date and different embarkation port when we learned that the ship was moving to Galveston in Sept 2018. Since we had booked it onboard using PG rate, it didn't cost extra to move it and we kept the $100 OBC for booking onboard. Now...well not sure how this will play out. Here's what you could try: call the Carnival 800 number five different times over a period of several days and talk to five different reps. Then go back and take the best 3 out of 5 answers. Good luck. ...Oh, and come back here and let us know what you found out!

    Most likely, the Main Dining Room on Deck 3 forward.

    Disembarkation Question (Freedom)

    There's all kinds of "ifs" with debarkation. Generally, however, if you choose self-assist, and you are Platinum or FTTF, and you are getting off on deck 3 (Lobby), you can take your luggage and your party down to deck 3 on the elevators anytime after debark has begun. Once there, don't ask anyone, just go around the elevators and join the line in the lobby to get off. Believe me, they want everyone off the ship as soon as possible so if you are willing and able to take your stuff and go, they will be happy to accommodate. Here's hoping you have a great cruise and easy debarkation. Bon Voyage!
  9. Carnival could easily include Costa Maya along with the other ports of call by doing 8- and 6-day sailings, especially from Galveston and New Orleans. 6-day sailings could alternate Belize-Costa Maya-Coz along with Roatan-Costa Maya-Coz itineraries while the 8-day itinerary could do four: Belize-Roatan-Costa Maya-Coz alternating with Jamaica-Gran Cayman-Costa Maya-Coz. I would eagerly book one (or more) of these.

    Cabin above Rome Main Lounge

    We were in a cabin on deck 6 forward on Carnival Triumph. If we listened carefully, we could hear some music and applause during the late show. It was somewhat muffled and didn't bother us at all. Your cabin is in a great location. Here's hoping you have a great cruise. Bon Voyage!

    Regular balcony vs cove balcony

    Noise from the deck above should not be a problem if you can book a cove anywhere forward of the mid-ship elevators.
  14. Ask your MDR waiter for Bitter & Blanc the first night. Then, remind your waiter each night that you want it. You will get it one night by the end of the cruise. Don't know why, but it's no longer on the menu. However, it can be had if you keep asking.

    booking onboard not worth the hassle

    Not a "fake" cruise--you book a real cruise at some future date, usually as far out as you can. When you book un PG, you can make changes without fees and you can still claim price drops up to final payment date. Under ES, any changes, like ship, date, cabin, cabin mates, etc., will cost you $50 per person but you can also claim price drops up to 2 days before the cruise.
