  1. Our Carnival stock adventure. Never played the market before and thought we bought 100 shares last year at $40.53 a share. Just discovered all we did was put money in an account. Bought 200 shares yesterday for $16.23 a share with $800 still in our account. Saved money and 100 extra shares at a lower rate, that was a wonderful day In the Market.
  2. We are on the Horizon September 5th to the 19th , 2020, B2B
  3. You don’t have to spend all day on the water taxi. Go to a specific stop or two and then return. Spend a few hours seeing Fort Lauderdale.
  4. We are flying into FLL for the first time. Our cruise is September 5th, out-of POM we usually stay downtown Miami. Have never stayed at the Embassy Suites on 17th St. Booked two nights, just want to relax by the pool with the restaurants and shopping close by. The water taxi departs from the Hyatt, takes you to numerous places. An Uber to the beach are a couple of things to do.
  5. I’m diabetic and have been cruising with it since 2004. We have a cruise booked since last year for September 5th this year and plan to be on it. I see no problem with your health. If you feel good I wish you happy sailing.
  6. Number two with no hesitation. Beaches, beaches, beaches. HMC, tender right to the beach. Grand Turk, right at the pier. Aruba, you will need transportation to a hotel/resort. Curaçao, been there once, don have info on beaches.
  7. We have been on three journeys cruises that had photo seminars that discussed digital photography and two that discussed taking photos with your phone. After the seminar the lecturer will answer any questions. You might get lucky and catch one of these. If you catch Radu, he’s the Carnival chief photographer. His photos are beautiful.
  8. I’m not concerned about hot spots, it’s still 3 1/2 months until our cruises. We fly to all our cruises, we are in north central Illinois, hopefully not for long. Gotta get out of this state. We are on the September 5th/ 13th Horizon out of Miami. Right now we are hunkered down in our home, both of us are seniors. Looking forward to the cruises, hope there’s not to many burdensome restrictions that ruin the cruise.
  9. Have e-mailed guest services@carnival.com two times in the last two months and so far I received the we will get back ASAP electroniclly generated e-mail.
  10. Our September 5th Horizon Cruise has disappeared tonight. We are scheduled to visit Aruba, Curaçao, LaRomana, and Amber Cove.
  11. We to are staying in Fort Lauderdale prior to our cruise out of Miami this September. We are staying at the Embassy Suites 17th St. (Breakfast free). There’s also a Renaissance, and a Holiday Inn Express on 17th St. We also booked SAS shuttle from the Embassy to the port of Miami and then back to FLL. Cost is $15.00 per person each way. They emailed back with instructions and pick up time at the hotel. Lots of stores and restaurants in the area.
  12. Check the Metairie area, just east of MSY and Greta area, across the river from New Orleans.
  13. Weather perfect. Water warm. Possibly rain showers that do not last long.
  14. Glory is our favorite ship, have sailed on her 5 times with a 6th booked out of NOLA a year from this August. We only book cruises that add up to 14 days or longer because of the long distance we have to travel. Have you thought of a B2B on your cruise to satisfy your likes.
  15. Have never cruised from Mobile but had a cruise booked then cancelled. I researched the port parking. Looks like it could get congested at peak arrival times. There is a parking garage and when filled you get directed to a lot a few blocks from the port. Hope this helps a little.
