  1. eqj60. Which river boat will you be on? We are on the Monarch Duchess, Budapest to AMS. October 24.
  2. Yes it us hard to get good information. Not like a Carnival cruise, where there is a lot of information. Size does make a difference. Not even close to being apples to oranges. More like ripe watermelons to carrot seeds.
  3. We are sailing October 24th thru November 7th (Budapest to Amsterdam). Would like to hear your comments on your whole trip. First time river cruising and looking forward to it.
  4. How do you contact John Herald on Facebook? Do you just write a post on his page for a request or is there a special place for visitors request?
  5. 14 days until the Legend to Alaska with the whole family, three generations 11 members. You can not take it with you so you should spend it and enjoy it while you can.
  6. If you do buy an Ulu, put it in your checked luggage. You can not bring it back in your carryon if flying. I saw a couple lose two knives at the Vancouver airport four years ago. In a fight it would be one mean weapon. It is a nice gift and they do vary in price.
  7. Two weeks ago, I used 12 $500.00 Carnival gift cards to pay the balance on three bookings/cabins for our family cruise next year. I used a TA. Had less than $8.00 balance left on one card after that. 10% saving equals $600.00.

  9. On Carnival you can save 10% when you buy the AARP gift cards. You do not have to be 55 or a member to buy. I recently bought 16 $500 gift cards for our family Alaska cruise in June of 2019. It cost $450 (plus postage) and 5,000 AARP points for a $500 Carnival gift card. Points are easy to earn. I used the gift cards to pay off the balance on three cabins and had $7.60 left over. I plan to buy more for service charges, pictures and excursions. I learned about this from the "Cruise Critic" community.
  10. Just bought two $500 cards. They also had the $100 cards. 10% tax free is a good quick return on our money.
  11. Thank you for your great review. We will be on the Legend in June of 2019. Did you see anyplace in the Seattle cruise terminal to buy cans of Coke or soda?
  12. Thank you for all of the replies. I just wanted the whole family to eat together for 7 nights in a row. I like to look out and see our legacy. This was part of my bucket list. I can live with two tables next to each other. We cruised last year on MSC and had two tables. Just thought Carnival had larger tables.

    Ulu Knives

    If you are flying home with the knives, put them in your checked luggage not your carryon. Two years age at the Vancouver airport, I saw a couple loose their two sets at security. Our three sets were already in our checked luggage. They would make a wicked weapon in a fight.
  14. In June of 2019, we will be on the Legend with a family group of 11 in 3 cabins. Will we be able to sit together at one table for the evening meal in the dining room? Should we plan on two tables? Thank you for your knowledge.
