  1. We did the Teppanyaki on the Horizon earlier this year and even though it wasn't listed as a combination you could do filet and chicken also.
  2. I use them every cruise for miscellaneous items like sunscreen, OTC meds, and other items plus I use 1 of the 2 drawers for long pants rather than take up room in the closet. Yes sometimes extra bedding is in there and I take it out and put on top of the couch.
  3. Keep in mind their are 3 small children and it's unlikely that shuttles will have car seats. The NCL shuttles will be full size buses and car seats won't be required. So I would suggest staying at a hotel by the airport and taking the NCL shuttle the next day unless you're bringing car seats with you to use.
  4. I understand that no one is assigned to the ship yet. However Carnival has changed the specialty dining reservation process and you order online similar to how you order short excursions so it no longer ends up being an email to the specialty dining manager as it was in the past.
  5. I've been trying to book specialty dining on the Panorama also and haven't been able to. I get an error so I'm not sure when it will be available to book. I'm guessing they'll use the new system but who knows. I just keep checking because my cruise isn't until January.
  6. The OP was booking a special offer from the casino. When the casino makes offers they only have a certain number of cabins available not the entire availability of empty cabins for the whole ship. A normal booking change of cabins doesn't apply here. Once the offer expired regular rules and rates apply just like everybody else. So if they want a different cabin they lose the perks that the casino offered and they end up as just a regular passenger.
  7. You said you have $100 OBC but what is the OBC from because that would determine if it's equally divided between one of the kids and yourself? To me it just seems simpler to just get duplicate keys and keep the accounts the same as how they were set up before you board. Then you just use your S&S card just like normal and only need the 2nd card to open the door.
  8. Usually on the train in Skagway they have a roundtrip excursion where you just go to the border and turn back around and return to Skagway and for that excursion you don't need a passport.
  9. I'm also a longtime Carnival cruiser but we've done a few on NCL. For restaurant recommendations I like the Teppanyaki because it's always been an entertaining experience. JMHO
  10. I get free interior rooms all the time on casino offers. I also sometimes get free oceanviews and balconies. Plus most come with casino cash or free play and have always included DOU as well.
  11. The reason you are seeing such a different price difference is supply and demand. Holiday weeks are in season and early December is off season with people occupied with Christmas Shopping and preparing for the holidays so not as much demand. We've stayed on Lido and even had a cabin the closest to the door going out to the pool area and didn't notice any additional noise plus it was so convenient to pop out for the buffet or Guys or the pool.
  12. The Horizon is the only Carnival Ship that has a Teppanyaki restaurant. That would be my first choice and 2nd would be the steakhouse.
  13. Just an FYI re: the brunch. Although they don't list the juices on the menu except for the fresh squeezed, they have the regular juices just ask. We had tomato juice a few weeks ago when we went to the brunch.
  14. Jacinta is John's assistant and she responds for him when he's not available.
  15. In addition to what's already been mentioned, be sure to keep your documents with you when you check in and don't place them in the checked luggage or you won't be able to board. If you don't have passports and are using birth certificates and government issued photo ID's like a DL your wife's name likely won't match the birth certificate so the marriage license may be requested also as a bridging document to substantiate the name change.
