  1. Go on the first day and talk to Spa Manger and let him know that you are staying in Room # and it is not a Spa room but do have interest in learning more. During our last cruise on Breeze in 2016 we did just that, we ended up getting a one day pass and fell in love with the T-Pool, Thermal Suites after that we booked a Spa room for our next cruise and so on. If the Management is still the same (which 3 years probably not) they are good at giving you a deal to get you in. Steiner operates the Spas so they can give you extra deals if you talk to the manger. (Spa Manager not Carnival)
  2. Do you have a PVP, I have mine email me or text me when thing open up or change.
  3. I can't speak for NY, but as the two post above that seems to be the norm at every port. At least for Galaveston and Ft. Laundale we boarded right after the Wedding guest.
  4. We love to fly out of Worcester because how small, quick to get in, and cheap parking. but during our last trip we learned that Worcester can be a tricky airport if you have a time limit. A couple people on our flight let us know because of where the airport located sometime planes cannot land or have to approach from a different side. This happen to us on our way home, we started to descent and quickly had to regain attitude and come from the other side. I thought after them putting in the CAT III system thing would change. Good Luck, hope everything works out. We now fly out of Bradley or Logan for a cruise but still will use Worcester if we have a couple days extra to use.
  5. On our sailing on Breeze we had the tag team of Mike and Mike, so it made our cruise amazing. As stated above it was really nice to be able to walk around the ship with nothing to go inside to go back outside, nice and open. After Breeze we went on Splendor, which of course is a ship of it own. We enjoyed it but after going on Breeze, it just wasn't the same anymore. We have Mardi Gras next year, so we will see if it just the Newer ship feeling or Breeze it self..
  6. We had a Spa Balcony last cruise we had on the lido deck. It was pretty awesome knowing if you want to run back to your room to get something or use the bathroom it was just thru the doors and a little walk. No elevator to wait for or stairs to climb. Plus the 24/7 Pizza was really close when getting hungry at night. loved it!
  7. Checked the cruise ship tracker and didn't see anything, and I don't think anything is heading to a dry dock. Was it a older ship with a painted whale tail, then again I'm not sure if any of those are still sailing.
  8. I love getting them, but I did find it funny once that I was walking in IKEA and there was one in a display case. Unfortunately they took the name plate off so we couldn't tell which ship it came from .
  9. Great explantion, I knew a little bit about this but explained some more.. Thank you
  10. I thought my wife and I where the only ones that get in early. One of the big reason why we get a balcony to enjoy the late night in the comfort of our room.
  11. Splendor & Dream class for the Spa Therapy pool. Something about that therapy room! Little disppointed by our net cruise on Mardi Gras with the location and size of it.
  12. I also found having Spa Room give us the ability to the relaxtion room, thermal room or therapy pool to get away from the excitement. Also go to the front of the ship on a odd number and go outside where many people don't go.
  13. I tried to do a mock booking for one of these for the Northeast Cruise and could not see one avalible, so i went for a Ocean Suite. Honeslty I would take a regular balcony if it wasnt for traveling with a young child.
  14. I ask John about this not so long ago, and Carnival will only sale out during a certain time frame to be able to have a full ship (Peak traveling month to NY). Which sucks because NYC being my homeport but being from New England (Northeast) I can see the major fators of having a ship sale during the winter and early spring months. Weather can kill a itinary really quick!
  15. Nope, this is what kills my pocket every cruise. Two white mocha in the morning, and always something fancy at night. lol...$$$$
  16. @RRLLAL awesome!! I'm sure as we get closer to our cruise date, I'll be asking some question. I normally cruise south or to the islands never thought of cruising where I live. So glad to hear someone from the Northeast cruising in the Northeast more the once.
  17. @Organized Chaos Thank you for information, I have been looking for a certain room next to the one I book for a while now and this helped!
  18. @samandpam I live in MA, on the Western side but go to Boston area a lot. As others have said Salem is 40min away without traffic. You can get a round trip from about $14 on the T which will take about 30min. It can be done without a problem, you just need to pay attention to Ship time really close. I would recommend the ferry but not sure the schedule in October. Good luck and enjoy Boston, their a lot to do where ever you go.
  19. Having the City about 3hrs away, I wouldn't mind more options on Carnival. I'm sure it won't happen, the pier area has a lot of things going as it does. For the winter months, they may not sail full enough. A snowy day in the North East can shut down airports quick. Anyhow, bring on more fun, and more inaugural sailings!
  20. Great Attitude, either way, you will have a great time. One thing I have learned cruising don't count on the port, jus the vacation!
  21. I know on the upcoming Mardi Gras it depends on what suite you have and what you will get. I have a what they call a long mini-suite it will not get me the Unlimited access to Loft 19 that comes with the Excel suites. Yet I do have a longer room, and bigger balcony.
  22. PVP can be a great tool, I text mine when I have a question. He normal text me back right away or if he is working will call me right away and then said me a email.
  23. @JohnSpo I agree, even when I fly in to see family. Viejo San Juan is always my first stop before going to see anyone. Love the place.
  24. Check on what room they are offering you. I was called for an upgrade only to research the room was in a bad location. Yes, it was an upgrade but an upgrade to a non covered balcony. I decided once I checked, once I book a cruise I always download the deck plan on my phone just in case I have a question or think about it again. Shoot I just changed my room on Mardi Gras with the new updated deck plan.
