Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. I definitely don't want anyone being able to look down onto my balcony. I just like privacy. Thanks for your help 😀
  2. I'm new to NCL but there's a cruise I'd love to take on Joy. I'm noticing though there dont seem to be any balconies that I can look down unobstructed. I know if I'm sitting my view isn't obstructed but I prefer a private balcony where I cant look down at others, the promenade etc and don't want others looking into my balcony. Are there any such balconies on the Joy?
  3. Really? I'm always super polite and tip so.... the main thing I notice is I drink alot of cocktails, frozen ones etc. They pour in the shot then the mix and its always too much for the glass. So 2/3 goes in the glass and 1/3 goes down the drain. One time I asked the guy for the rest and he said he's not allowed. I tried to explain that I paid for a shot not 2/3 of a shot but he didn't get it. When your paying 12 bucks a drink its a bit frustrating
  4. Very clever. 🙄 Personally I don't consider having to insist on something is being offered twice a day service. And as I stated our friends were told morning OR evening. Counting is hard but that's once. I always find it odd when certain people can't handle that Carnival has flaws. Very weird.
  5. I was on my last precovid cruise Feb 2020 also. We sailed with friends. Our steward asked if we wanted morning OR evening. We cruise alot so we said both. The steward was annoyed and said hes too busy and showed us a card that showed am or pm. No choice for both but he wrote it in and did come. Our friends had a different steward who also gave them am or pm. They didn't know you could get both so they chose am. I read posts on John's page telling him this and he denied you only get one or the other.
  6. I'm not complaining. As I said most of what i wrote is based on what people are saying. There was a post where several people said their stewards weren't changing the water cabin to cabin and it was visibly dirty. And others saying drinks are watered down. As far as twice a day service pre2020 Carnival kept saying they have twice a day service but once onboard the stews would ask guests if they want or ing or night. That's a fact, happened to me personally on 3 cruises. Finally, if you don't like a post move on.
  7. I'm guessing all of the decreases in service while upping the costs. Cabin stewards for instance. Prepandemic people were complaining that they had to choose morning or night. John Heald constantly lied and said it's not true you still get it twice a day. Then covid hit and they said it's only once a day to minimize contact. But based on what I've read, they use the same dirty water cabin to cabin and are ok with that but not actually entering the cabins twice a day. They are super stingy with the booze in the drinks. Just generally less things seem to be offered now. I board on Sunday and am interested to see for myself how things are now.
  8. We booked the Grand Suite for our cruise next week. In looking at photos it seems there is a DVD player. Anyone stayed in these suites and can tell me for sure?
  9. Does anyone happen to have photos of the suites on Spirit? Everything online is like 10 years old. Wanting to see what the ocean suite and grand suite look like. Thanks 😀
  10. Since I can no longer get the transderm patches in Canada, I've been trying to find a good product for seasickness. I know of dramamine and bodine. I've heard there are tablets kept at guest services that work really well if you're sick and you just have to ask. Is this true?
  11. Carnival owns Holland America. They dont borrow the island from them.
  12. I was looking at prices online for pressing shirts. It says 5.75 for a long sleeve shirt. But I sailed 3 years ago and it was around 10.00. Has anyone had a shirt pressed recently and how much did it cost?
