  1. I just booked a Canada cruise out of NYC on Magic for Sept 2022. This is a long way out but I am hoping to book another cruise before then when cruising re-starts.
  2. These cabins can be noisy when going into port or when the waves are slapping against the front of the ship. If you are a light sleeper or are sensitive to noise, I would avoid this cabin. I don't mind the noise so I enjoy the value of a larger cabin with the port windows at the lowest cabin price. The beds are twin size and may have a sofa, so depending on the layout of the porthole cabin, it may not be ideal for couples. Overall these port hole cabins are a great value.
  3. This also happened to me. Carnival said the refund was processed but it was not credited to my current credit card # but a prior credit card # that got cancelled due to fraud. I called the credit card company and they applied the credit to the current credit card #.
  4. I would do Playa del Carmen/Cozumel/Cancun all inclusives. I would also go to St Lucia which is my favorite cruise port.
  5. I cruised on Anthem a year ago. It was spotlessly clean. The food was great. I experienced not rowdy behavior. The crew was also great and so was the entertainment. It was such a great cruise that I have it booked again for March 2021. Enjoy Anthem. It is a great RCL ship and the convenience to go out of Bayonne is a real benefit.
  6. Going out on deck on a clear night and look out at the ocean and up at the sky. It is so quiet and peaceful. This is when you really know you are on the ocean.👍
  7. I did a L&S on my March 2021 to March 2022. My switch was an exact match on ship, itinerary and cabin so there was no problem at all.
  8. Yes, I did a L&S from March 2021 to March 2022 without any issues.
  9. Congratulations Navycruiser on a great deal. Enjoy the upgrade.😎
  10. I miss the steak and eggs and French fries at the seaday brunch. I also miss the Bloody Mary bar at the entrance of the MDR at the brunch. My favorite is the Bloody Mary made with gin instead of vodka with extra olives.😎
  11. Carnival cancelled my Sep 2020 Radiance cruise out of NYC. I requested my refund on April 17th. Today I received my steakhouse and bottled water refund along with $300 of my $900 deposit. They still need to refund the remaining $600 of the deposit. I charged everything on the same credit card so I am not sure why I received only $300 of the $900 deposit but at least Carnival is working on it in in a 5 week period so far.
  12. Unfortunately I also will be taking a break from cruising for at least 2-3 years as precaution due to health concerns. I had my Legend cruise cancelled for May, then my Sept Radiance cruise cancelled in Sept. Both out of New York. I look forward to cruising with Carnival again. Hopefully there is a proven vaccine approved sooner than later and things can get back as close to normal a possible. Stay safe and healthy everyone.😎
  13. Can the OBC also be used for the Cheers package or does it not apply to alcohol?
  14. I am on one of the cancelled Radiance cruises. I did not yet get the email with the terms of cancellation. How is the FCC calculated? Is it just the value of the deposit? Thank you and stay healthy so we can all cruise again soon.😀
