  1. Thanks!! That’s good news about the balconies! I don’t like the older style ships with smoke coming out of the casinos, and several cruise lines with old ships have it set up that way. 🤞🏻 About better ventilation on new ships. Even on harmony the non smoking “side” of the casino was not bad! Probably that newer venting system at work?!
  2. Ok, last post , lol! Randy... great review! I think you make valid points about older vs newer block buster ships. It would not be fair to compare lines older ships vs new per ships. Like 🍏 vs 🍊 Sounds like you are favorable towards the Carnival experience but would appreciate a newer ship with more amenities! Hopefully, Mardis Gras will be that! Things I'm excited about: you know me, I don’t like to spend a lot of time in the main dining room, so I like the idea of GOOD PIZZA! (Available all the time!) and other yummy free food places. Deck parties...love to dance!
  3. This is awesome news! As Randy will tell you his group likes to dance (we gotta a couple of Zumba instructors and a bunch of enthusiasts in the group) I love dance parties and hubby always enjoys a good piano bar! The one on our last RCL “smaller ship” Cruise the piano bar was too close to the casino and the cigarette smoke wafted out into the piano bar, honestly I felt bad for the singer, could not have been great for his voice. On Harmony the piano man is in the Schooner bar off the promenade which is a much better location. Does anyone know where the casino will be on Mardis Gras, I r
  4. This exactly! I’m also hopeful Mardis Gras will have more to “do” as we tire quickly of the “go to a lounge and drink” scene. I agree with you about Jewel, we loved our S Caribbean port intensives on Jewel, but Hubby says no more of that kind of ship because there’s not enough to do at night. I mean we just got off a ship with only 50 passengers, nothing but a pair of small hot tubs and a bar, but had an amazing time because we were off the ship having excursions twice a day and only wanted to watch a lecture and go to sleep afterwards 🤣 But in the Caribbean, where we’ve been many times
  5. Well hello there Carnival party people! I’m a loyal to Royal (and a bunch of other smaller cruise lines that go to places other than the Caribbean) but I’m anxious to read this review from my friend Randy because he’s trying to convince us to try out a Carnival cruise with his group soon. I’m going to dig in, Randy, and see what I think! I’m sure I’ll have lots of comments 🤣🤣
