  1. We're sailing in 2 weeks (the repositioning cruise). When you can reply could you let us know how well the crew are enforcing the mask rules in the halls, elevators and showrooms? Also, is Ken Byrne still singing each evening in the dining room? Thanks for the info.
  2. Walking on deck 3, when you get to the front of the ship - enter the sliding door and either cross to the other side's door or do what we did each morning, walk through Gatsby's Gardens and then to the other door!
  3. About 2 weeks ago I read a comprehensive list of the specific types of Covid tests accepted by Carnival (one set for vaccinated passengers, one for unvaxed if I recall). I've searched and can not find it, can anyone either list it here or let me know where to look for it? Thanks in advance.
  4. Great to hear from you! Glad to see you're back onboard. We were in 7423 four years ago and thought the air settings were better than on many ships. If I remember correctly, is there an individual motor (air and heat) in each cabin? It was great for temperatures--but eliminated most of one closet for the cabin?
  5. Again---as long as the power strip does not have a surge suppressor. Here is what the Carnival site says. Each stateroom has one electric outlet located at the desk. The outlet is equipped with a 3-prong 110 volt (North America Grounded) and a 220 volt (Europe German-Style). On the Carnival Celebration and Mardi Gras, there are three outlets located at the desk. On the Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama, Carnival Sunrise, and Carnival Vista, there is one USB outlet (5 volt, 1000mA) in each stateroom. On the Carnival Celebration and Mardi Gras, there are multiple USB outlets at the desk and next to the beds. The outlet in the bathroom can only be used for electric razors. Power strips, multi plug box outlets/adaptors and extension cords (without surge protectors) are allowed on board when used with proper caution. However, if such devices are determined to pose a hazard, they will be removed and returned the last day of the cruise prior to debark. I took this picture on either the Vista or Horizon, but I believe they are both the same.
  6. We've been on the Pride 5 times. Our favorite part is the singing Maitre D, Ken Byrnes but I'm not sure how long he'll stay once the Pride reaches Tampa. Here is a link to an "album" of our 2019 cruise, just click on any picture to make it larger and you'll see parts of the ship. Enjoy your cruise! Carnival Pride 2019
  7. I REALLY hope you are able to get on the Pride November 28. We are supposed to board the Pride Oct. 31 in Baltimore for a 14 day cruise ending in Tampa Nov. 14. Because of the 14 day aspect, we will travel with 100% vaccinated, rather than 95% and we have to show a negative covid test taken within 72 hours in order to board!
  8. About the only disagreeable item I can think of is the vibration you might feel when docking or leaving port.
  9. I guess it's a new policy for B2B which equal 14 or more days. We were pleasantly surprised when our 6 day and 8 day B2B received $50 OBC and $200 OBC!
  10. Here's the Carnival instructions. Be sure to blacken out the account #. We can now accept shareholder proof via email at shareholders@carnival.com for those with over 100 shares looking for their extra onboard credits. After the reservation has been made, the shareholder must provide their legal name, reservation number, ship and sailing date, along with proof of ownership of Carnival Corporation or Carnival plc shares (for example: photocopy of shareholder proxy card, a dividend tax voucher or a current brokerage or nominee statement with the brokerage account number blacked out) at the time of deposit. Again, please remember to omit/cross out your account # prior to emailing their proof. •$50 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 6 days or less •$100 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 7 to 13 days •$250 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 14 days or longer
  11. I posted the following "plea" on John Heald's and our PVP Aida Hermann's FB pages. I was wondering if anyone in this forum could come up with a solution. Any advice??? We were thrilled to find that our 14 day Carnival Pride cruise – Oct. 31-Nov.13 would be sailing. Since we have had our Covid Pfizer vaccines for months, the fact that 100% of passengers were required to be vaccinated was WELCOMED! However, the final requirement presents a quandary. We are being told that at embarkation we have to present proof of a negative PCR test that has been administered 24 to 72 hours before boarding. We have gone to (or called) our doctor, Walgreens, CVS, a test facility, a hospital and a fortune teller------all have told us the same thing, there is no guarantee that any Covid 19-PCR test results can be delivered within 72 hours. If the test labs are busy, results may take up to 6 days (144 hours). Finally, many of the passengers will be traveling to the port of Baltimore during at least the day before sailing. Therefore, we have these three questions: 1. 1. Can the powers that be change the 72 hours to 144 hours? 2. 2 If #1 is unacceptable could the “rapid” Covid test be used? 3. 3 If, heaven forbid, the result was to come back (possibly a false) positive-----would we be able to get FCC because of a cruise that was, through no fault of our own, denied to us? Thank you for any assistance you can provide, Linda & Allen Caplan
  12. We've brought this rather heavy 3/8 in. thick plastic door decoration on many cruises. We use COMMAND STRIPS AND HOOKS to hold it. The room stewards like it because they leave no residue on the doors.
  13. If I may ask, have they kept the charge for the tips the same? I believe it was about $14 per person per day pre-covid. We usually paid that and, if given excellent service, gave extra to the waitstaff, room stewards, etc.
  14. The shareholder's OBC is voted on each year -- it's been approved to continue giving it out for many years and I can't see it being voted down now when Carnival NEEDS customers. However, they don't approve giving it for any time UNTIL it's been voted on. So they won't approve late 2022 and beyond---I can't remember when the meeting is each year but think it's not till May??
  15. We've never had ours unplugged either. However, the power strip we bring with us goes along with the Carnival rule (below) and does not have a surge suppressor. I'm not sure if this is the same as circuit breaker protection, but if it is they are not allowed. Supposedly they are fire hazards with ship's wiring. Carnival site states------------ Power strips, multi plug box outlets/adaptors and extension cords (without surge protectors) are allowed on board when used with proper caution. However, if such devices are determined to pose a hazard, they will be removed and returned the last day of the cruise prior to debark.
  16. We've used them and agree that they're OK, not super. I remember reading that the 2 new ships will no longer have them.
  17. We're looking at the wrap around for next summer, mainly because we'll take our teen age granddaughter and want to give her a separate room area----$4,500 for the 3 of us. Meanwhile, we're hoping for the 14 day repositioning cruise on Oct. 31 to take place.
  18. Have they changed? We sailed with them 2 years ago and they matched our Diamond with their highest, Black. We did not care for the food and would not cruise with them again---but the perks WERE much better than Carnival's!
  19. Any of the cold fruit "soups" (tastes like a milk shake!), recently they brought back my favorite entree, Beef Wellington, and (you could probably tell from my "handle") chocolate melting cake!
  20. In the past it was pier 39 near Fisherman's Wharf (according to Google). Let's hope we're back to semi-normal cruise conditions by then!
  21. We also will be going in May and have checked out shuttles, Uber, taxis, etc. They give time estimates from 25 to 40 minutes. A noon flight SHOULD be doable if the ship is not delayed. Just be sure to let the ship's desk know you are booked on an "early" flight to get an early check out time---unless you can take off your own luggage and be in the first group out.
  22. Latest from Carnival-----most importantly "Cross out your account number" We can now accept shareholder proof via email at shareholders@carnival.com for those with over 100 shares looking for their extra onboard credits. After the reservation has been made, the shareholder must provide their legal name, reservation number, ship and sailing date, along with proof of ownership of Carnival Corporation or Carnival plc shares (for example: photocopy of shareholder proxy card, a dividend tax voucher or a current brokerage or nominee statement with the brokerage account number blacked out) at the time of deposit. Again, please remember to omit/cross out your account # prior to emailing their proof. •$50 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 6 days or less •$100 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 7 to 13 days •$250 on board credit per stateroom on any cruise of 14 days or longer
  23. We've been lucky enough to sail on several Journey cruises---we look forward to the Throwback Day, with frog races and other games played back in the 90's. If you (or anyone) is interested in seeing an album of a journey cruise which started in Tampa, went to the Panama Canal and ended in Baltimore onboard the Pride -- kind of the opposite of our October cruise -- I'll leave a link below, just click on it. Feel free to skip over the pix of us and click on the pix of the ship, Canal, etc. to enlarge them. Hope to see you onboard! 2017 Pride Journey Cruise
