  1. Just curious what is the earliest boarding time on most ships (when everything is going on schedule)
  2. You obviously don’t use a C-Pap so it’s understandable your thinking that putting it on the floor is good solution. Unfortunately air is sucked in through the vents and most of us would be kinda grossed out thinking what is getting sucked out of the carpet and into the machine. There is also the tube issue. I sleep on my side. Both sides. And if I’m facing away from the machine the tube goes across my face/head. If the tube flows downward instead of laterally to a table somewhat equal to the height of the bed it would be extremely uncomfortable. Mardi Gras appears to be a fantas
  3. So now we get the bitching from the smokers about the view!!
  4. Not only that but I’d wager most of the action is in the evening when there aren’t any views anyway!!
  5. Looking at John Healds videos leaves me wondering also why there’s no outlet and table next to the bed. I would venture a guess that in this day and age at least 10% or more of the older passengers use a C-Pap
  6. Duh!!!! Everyone who cruises knows the Panamera is one of the most popular ships in the Carnivore fleet.
  7. If you could get pictures of the extended balconies on the “hump” cabins ( for example 10350/10354 I would appreciate it.
  8. Not only that but most c-paps have the option to go without water. Regardless, luckily for me I still have my old c-pap that works just fine and doesn’t use water at all. So whenever I travel that’s the one I bring.
  9. They tend to not pay attention to the scanner when they’re rushing the last groups coming on. I only know from experiences twice as we were some of the last boarding. Of course there’s no guarantee, but the worst that will happen is they take it and hold it till the end of the cruise when you can then get it back.
  10. What a refreshing full of life person you are! I hope you’re all able to get on early (the saved screen shot should help), but if not at least you’re able to keep it all in perspective instead of most people these days who make the biggest deals about such petty stuff. Another hour of your life waiting your turn to get on such a beautiful ship is pretty low in the pecking order of life changing problems!! If you want to “smuggle” a little, ahem, adult beverages, being one of the last helps. There comes a point where they’re trying to close the doors and they tend to relax a
  11. I think the banning of smoking in public buildings, restaurants, public areas etc. was the beginning of the “I have my rights” movement. And just like mask wearing which is not so much to protect yourself as it is to protect others, or vaccinations which are to protect not only yourself but others by disrupting the chain the virus needs to mutate, smokers “rights” never take in consideration what smoking in enclosed areas does to everyone else. There’s nothing worse than putting on fresh laundered clothes only to have them stink with the putrid stale smell of smoke, let alone what i
  12. Checking in at 12:01 Eastern time is great advice. I’ll tell my daughter and her boyfriend for their August cruise and definitely my wife and myself will do the same for our October Mardi Gras cruise. As far as your Mom, in today’s world she’s still middle aged, but, playing up her elderly age as all the rest of you are ready to board should be enough to instill some common sense into the desk employees. It’s not like her boarding with you is gonna make a difference to anyone else. It would be different if she had the early check in and was trying to bring the group with her. But one add
  13. I truly don’t believe Carnival is looking for excuses to deny vaccinated passengers to board. Quite the opposite. I think they’re gonna do everything they can to make your experience a positive one. No doubt there are glitches that are causing delays, but in the end, they will do whatever it takes to get you on board.(As long as you’re following all the requirements in good faith).
  14. You’re missing the point. Yes, open the schools unless the Delta variant really does start hitting the younger age groups. Right now though, any adult who wants to be vaccinated can be vaccinated so the argument that kids would be potential silent spreaders is moot. Cruise ships however are a whole different animal. An outbreak in a school or a neighborhood can be contained. Nothing other than maybe a school or a school district being closed for a few weeks would be the result of an outbreak. A serious outbreak on a ship has the potential of shutting down the entire industry!!
