  1. I honestly don’t think this is possible, but how cool would it be to take tenders between the boats and get to see the different ships?
  2. I had Cheers in Europe on the Horizon, and had it the entire time. The ones in port were just taxed differently from what I recall. We took alcohol aboard and it was not confiscated.
  3. My last cruise on Carnival i was on the Horizon and I was able to check in using the computers by guest services.
  4. That is not always true. My mother-in-law had to show her marriage certificate with her birth certificate on her last cruise.
  5. We stayed at the Best Western Plus convention Center twice. Close to a grocery store and down the street from a great creperie. Its the one at 517 E First Street. easy walk to the beach. Shuttle to/from the airport and the port. 10/10 would stay there again if we ever do a cruise from Long Beach again.
  6. I highly doubt this is the case. Do you know the amount of “body fluids” that are on those sheets from vacationing couples alone? They would have to destroy every single set of sheets. And washcloths are used for more then your face.
  7. The longest out I ever booked was for my upcoming Journeys cruise...it was just over two years. Its usually in the 6-18 months range.
  8. There are bathrooms in Europe but they are few and far between, and most require some sort of payment to use. They also tend to have long lines from my experience. If you come across one, GO! You don’t know when you next chance will be.
  9. Has anyone had any recent luck with the AARP gift cards? I am a member and I have more then enough points to buy gift cards to pay off my cruise, but i never actually SEE any there to buy. I also have Allstate rewards, so I at least have some access for discounted cards, but AARP is faster to earn.
  10. On my cruise on the Glory a few years ago, there was a little boy (maybe 10?) in the serenity hot tub. He was wearing a snorkel mask and would dive under the water and stare at peoples chests. He muttered “boobies” and giggled a few times. No one said anything at first when he had just been sitting their calmly , but as soon as that happened I ran and grabbed someone. Even though he was a child it was still kinda creepy.
  11. I still can’t log on and its very aggravating. I did join for $12. Its worth it for the savings.
  12. I haven’t hated any of the ships I have been on and would gladly sail any of them again if the price was right during the time I want and where I want to go to 🤷🏻‍♀️ I am not picky though. The only ship I haven’t really cared for was Royal’s Adventure of the Seas, but again, if there was a cruise I wanted and that was the ship so be it.
  13. Not every has huge limits on their cards. It can cause valid purchases to be declined.
  14. Just remember that most two tops are not really that far from other tables and are by no means “private”. So if having a private table for medical concerns is needed, as another mentioned ask for a small booth. My mother had cancer and had 1/3 of her tongue removed, so I understand someone having issues with swallowing. She too takes her time eating. She is terrified of water so will never be caught dead on a cruise, but if she were to go with us we would do YTD and request a booth. That was she has as much privacy as you can get in public dining room, and as much time as she needs to eat. I would not do traditional dining as there is someone sitting in that table for late service, and for late service they need to turn tables for breakfast the next morning and just want to go to bed as soon as possible.
  15. I have never had a bad snorkeling experience with Carnival, but I am not picky and crowds don’t bother me. I have actually never had a bad excursion period. Just lucky I guess? I will say, I have had the ship held for us twice while on Carnival excursions. Once in St Thomas on a Snorkeling tour, one of the ships engines broke. We still had one, but it was slow going getting back. We were about two hours late after the scheduled departure time. I was sitting near the captain and heard him talking to the ship several times. The second time in Rome there was a huge accident and we were a little over an hour late. The tour guide was in constant contact with the ship. It seemed like as soon as our bus boarded they took off. So some might say it is a “myth”, but from personal experience, if on a Carnival excursion they do in fact hold the ship if you are late getting back.
