  1. I used the web for everything in a booking thanks to advise on these boards. Am hoping they don't change things and try to push the app on use like Carnival. Thanks for your reply, getting excited to surprise the family. It will be their first time on Princess 😁 our first time on Majestic.
  2. Hello, you were so helpful with our Oct. 2022 first time medallion cruise. We didn't use the app did everything through the web page on our booking. The medallion itself was great. We like going to get things ourselves and had no issues from boarding to leaving. Now I did have an issue with shore excursions but that was my fault. Now my question, I am booking 3 cabins for next July and wonder if you know if I can still do everything in the web or with the new app we will be required to go through that? We were forced to do the app on another line but found out once we were on it was only good for dining. They wouldn't take any calls you had to use the app. It was very hard to remove from his phone after and he gets bombarded with ads now. Six of us this time so want all information as this trip will be their Christmas gift. Thanks as always for your input.
  3. We have cruised Alaska three times but not on Carnival yet. Have been looking at this ship to take pour grandson who will be 14 next month. Question how did you like the balcony cabin? We want an unobstructed balcony as we use this. Was it covered? Would a third person be comfortable a balcony cabin on this ship? We like smaller vessels but because it will be his first trip to Alaska and my last sadly we would venture on a larger ship. Thanks for your review appreciate your viewpoint.
  4. I wasn't happy with the food either but I died gain 4 pounds, turned out to be fluid 😁. Don't plan to sail out of NY on Carnival again though. Sailed from this same pier on NCL and boarding was nothing like the mess we dealt with for this cruise.
  5. We just sailed on this ship. The lines were long at certain times but it moved quickly. We didn't really think the variety was worth the wait but did like the deli. Omelet station is quick as well. Then you can have burritos for breakfast or lunch, guys burgers, or pizza all fair. We preferred MDR this trip though, Grand Canal had brunch almost daily and we had early seating after the first night just showed up on time and sat ourselves. Oh and yes the floors around the buffet outside area were very slippery at times wear deck shoes but still be careful.
  6. Just off Friday the Lounge area where they had trivia didn't have food. They did have food in the Carnival Lounge at the back of the ship. I only saw this early in the day and believe it was for Terraza passengers.
  7. Wow so sorry yes, guess pushing Oct. going to be a big month.
  8. Just returned from our Venezia cruise, will post a review in member reviews tomorrow. We missed Amber Cove this trip? They did tell us at the port and an announcement as to why was made on board, but we didn't understand a word he said. We could never understand any announcements while sitting on deck 5. Didn't matter to us much took this cruise for the ship not the ports. Understand from others this port would have been better than Grand Turk. Well it wasn't a horror show others wrote about and we are home.
  9. Finally one more day, this time tomorrow we will be sailing. Today went well train arrived on time 10:50 grabbed a taxi and was at the hotel by 11:15. We left the bags and headed out. Got notice room was ready by three but didn't come back for a while. Had a nice late lunch early dinner at Landmark Tavern. We were starved walk 3.35 miles and didn't eat breakfast just a quick bagel at 6:30. Well hope everybody gets here safely we are in for the night just going to veg. Have a good night, Laura
  10. I'm watching as well. I generally don't get sick however I'm taking extra meds just in case. Have had rough seas in the Pacific a few time with storms never had to change ports though. Cruise now had to change ports but still in the Caribbean. It looks like we will either go through some high seas and still do our itinerary or go around the bad weather and maybe miss a port and or sea day. Just hope for the best I figure the line will do what is best for everybody including themselves. A lot can happen in three days 😁 . Have a day, Laura
  11. Just 4 more days until we sail. The trip now had a port change but watching forecasts and don't see this happening to us, unless the storms coming up the coast are a factor. Not keen on going north so hoping all is well come Thursday. Have a good weekend maybe we will see some of you soon, Laura
  12. Nobody set up a meet and greet the person who started the roll call said FB has events. I love slot pulls but they have way to many people who are attending. Anybody on this roll call want to meet up next week, I do and sweet November is looking? We have some groups on here any thoughts on when and where? Thank
  13. Thank yoh for this review we sail in a week and looking forward to our adventure.
  14. Welcome and congratulations. This roll call is very quiet but I am looking forward to this cruise as well. Haven't sail Carnival in over 10 years so we know it will be a new experience. Have a great day see you in a week, Laura
