  1. Yes, a good cruise is one I am not working, a great cruise is one I bring more money home than I took!
  2. Thanks once again for your work and insightful comments. Will be on her in a week and am looking forward to a great cruise!
  3. 3 card draw and blackjack (several versions) are on all Carnival ships.... In Jan I will know more!
  4. This is on the Sunshine and the fried shrimp were OK... the problem I had was they offered "steam" options but would not steam the oysters, raw only. (and it costs)
  5. Actually I would cruise RCL, I just would not wear the dang thing or request a card....
  6. A wristband has an RFID (radio-frequency Identification chip) which means the ship thru the wristband can monitor everywhere you go on the ship.... not just when you make a purchase or swipe to go in your room with a card. It extends off the ship while on a private island.
  7. WOW! A passport card WILL work for the Carib on a ship.... no one asked about in a car or Canada. Again if you already have one (I do like the reason you got one for the kids) by all means use it. We carry a passport with us everywhere but I rarely get in the water at a beach unless snorkeling (which would be on a boat), always am very aware of where I am. I would suggest once the kids are 16 to get them a passport, that age is when it's good for 10 years...
  8. One of the reasons I do not cruise RCL... I do not want anyone to know my every move on the ship - or off. I know they have cameras everywhere and the SS card can have a chip in it but no thanks to something I have to "wear".
  9. Completely agree, why would anyone get a "card"? If you already have one then use but a Passport is good for all sort of things... we carry ours even if flying within the US, everyone accepts them.
  10. By the "smiley" at the end of you statement I hope that is in jest.... the pure mockery of people not living on the coast is insufferable to say the least.
  11. I was on the SAME cruise and went to their cabin pretty much every day (we had a balcony), they did not want the bubbly so I got it. Saw the strawberries and the cheese tray. They had a great time meeting the captain at dinner. This was their first Carnival cruise as they were taking daughter/grand children. It happen, if you don't think it happens great, just letting others know that Carnival seems to be stepping up their game for suites....
  12. A couple I know had the grand suite this past May and got bubbly, something basically every day, invite to a dinner with the Captain, etc.
  13. Personally I cruise Carnival because of the "perks" I have. We usually get to the port early and on as early as we can... if the cabin would not be ready for us it would affect our choice. I "might" still cruise Carnival if the cruise was one I wanted out of Charleston but I would not drive to anywhere else to cruise on Carnival. We do NCL and Celebrity and are getting up there on points. Just another PITA, why piss off people who have spent lots of money with you over 20+ years?
  14. Again if you have cell tower connections you should be able to use the JetPack... again I would find out what the data cost is for each country, it could be very expensive. Years ago I had client that was in Canada right over the border and used a hotspot on their phone to use their laptop. Let's just say they turned off all roaming and hotspot the next time in Canada...
  15. Jetpacks (Verizon?) will work if there is a cell tower to connect to, not sure what your rate for MB/GB's would be in another country, some do actually charge by the MB of data... could be costly! Good luck, every time I go cruising I have to let my clients I am gone as I am it... I fix homeowners computers/networks/etc.
