  1. Southwest flights are available to book direct in January, detroit to ft lauderdale. I did see how to change Miami to Ft Lauderdale. Not that I have a lot of hope for a January cruise.
  2. I have never booked airfare through Carnival, but I have read you can choose your flights and make changes. Has anyone ever been able to book Southwest airline through Carnival? I just checked what is available for our cruise and Southwest is not offered. Do they add airlines or is it pretty much set with what I see.
  3. Thinking about a cruise on the Legend. We like a balcony that we can see down to the water, to see the ship cutting the water & watch runners at port. We last traveled on Jewel of the Seas and were disappointed because we were over a roof covering the lifeboats and could not see down. We prefer to be midships, and notice there are cabins that protrude out on either in front of the lifeboats or midsection behind. The safe bet would be the forward cabins. But I wondered if anyone has stayed in the balconies that protrude out mid ship. Can you see towards the front or are the lifeboats obstructing the view? Second question, where is the comedy club at? I see only the Follies Lounge, is there a second lounge where the comedy show is?
  4. Does anyone know if the accept a Starbuck's gift card?
  5. I am considering a cruise on the Pearl, I usually do Carnival and have done a couple Royal. I would like to try Norwegian as I like some of the itineraries. 1. On Carnival I usually spend my time in Serenity and on Jewel of the Seas I found several quiet areas overlooking the ocean. I like quiet areas to read and quilt. Does Pearl have any areas that would be like this? Because of money, I will probably book an inside, so won't have a balcony. If it is an outdoor deck, I want shade. 2. Also a bit confused about dining, we will probably do free dining, with maybe one specialty restaurant. They have a couple main dining rooms, which say the menu is the same in them. Does that mean that the menu is the same every night or do they have rotating menus that are the same that day? 3. Is it necessary to do reservations for free dining? I would like to see what is going on each night before I decide when I want to eat. We tend to like to eat early, say 5:30 to 6:30. 4. Will we be seated with other people or will we usually get a table for two? 5. On the "Free at Sea" one of the perks is a free drink package. I understand that we will have to pay the 20% gratuity for each drink. My husband likes craft beer, is there any included in this package? I assume it covers most umbrella drinks, I am not a heavy drinker and if I felt it was too much alcohol would it include virgin drinks? Thank you for any information you can give me!
  6. I will also add, it may be a Baltic and transatlantic. It would probably hit a couple of the Baltic ports and then maybe England, Ireland before transit. I don't have a specific cruise in mind, this is informational gathering.
  7. We are thinking of taking a Baltic cruise either spring or fall. We have only done warm weather cruises and usually book a balcony. I think it might be too cold to sit on the balcony with a cruise in the Baltic, what are thoughts about this?
