  1. I didn’t know I needed to go ask for a ship pin and quite honestly was having such a great time didn’t notice one was never delivered in the cabin until we got home. Did anyone get an extra Mardi Gras ship pin they would part with?
  2. You were saying the bartenders are resisting letting you tip and I asked if the Cheers package did not already have a 18% tip included….which it does
  3. I did a search and this does not come up. I read Carnival’s Covid policy and perhaps I am missing something. If a person tests positive what happens next? You cannot board but does Carnival credit your cruise cost? Does the $600 OBC you may have follow you? I am trying to be prepared for next Saturday Sept 4 departure. This is the 3rd try cruising since this all began and we have that $600 OBC. Each time we have ended up on a more expensive cruise which I am fine with but will we be allowed to rebook as if Carnival cancelled? We have had the Carnival Travel Insurance as part of our booking since the first one…
  4. Exactly why they should stop this pre trip testing insanity! A test 72 hours out is not at all useful 72 hours later, after possible exposures in that time frame. People who are sick need the confirmation, not asymptomatic vaccinated travelers.
  5. well, upon hearing somewhere that they needed items i did purchase a variety of toiletries but i planned on just asking the steward if they knew of anyone who could use them and, if not , i would take them home when i left...if i didn't see him/her in person i was going to leave a note with the bag. now that i have heard of the crew fund i'll look into that. i just donated a week of leave time to a co-worker who can't work right now because of his ailing mother but only after i overheard our timekeeper mentioning he had no more leave and last cruise we gave our steward $75 by way of guest services because his mother passed away during the cruise, which we only found out because he skipped our cabin 2 days straight and we went to complain. most people i know do what they can to help others in need, it's knowing what exactly is needed that is the problem.
  6. Considering my local Walmart had bare shelves everywhere I can certainly believe it. There are supply issues all around here. I’ll have to suffer and eat eggs benedict instead…or…let them eat cake! It has all the nutrients you need ;)
  7. Oh...My...Word!... MY birthday is August 12, 1960...No wonder I like your writing style!
  8. I will definitely be walking with my head down! I missed a step a few years ago and rolled outward, breaking the fifth metatarsal. Surgery and 6 weeks no weight bearing NOT fun! Congratulations on your birthday to a fellow Leo! Love the positive attitude. I, too, have developed that as last year between working in a busy hospital laboratory with heavy Covid cases, turning 60(!), amongst other things landed me in my own ER with global amnesia...If I can't look back and make fun what is there, lol. We will be boarding MG Sept 4 ready to experience life aboard however it presents itself!
  9. If the Urgent Care is running the test and providing you with results it is okay
  10. I have no idea how to respond to a specific post so I will just say that John Heald said you do NOT have to worry about the timing of your test. Anytime on Wednesday for a Saturday sailing is okay. As far as antigen vs. PCR, PCR is more sensitive and is slower result-wise. Antigen is quicker, as in 15 minutes, and will be less sensitive as in many more false negatives. I'm going for antigen...
  11. Is there a specific form or do you just send the stock document as an attachment to an email addressed to that email?
