  1. Heather, I get an email from Carnival telling me that the credit was applied to our account. I never see it on the booking , though. In the past, I have called Carnival to make sure it is on there. It always has been applied. I also screenshot the email in case I have to go to guest services, but after 10 or so cruises, there’s not ever a problem.
  2. Sure hope this is true for your cruise.
  3. American citizens won’t be able to go at all. It’s not just cruises.
  4. I hate that Trump did this.
  5. My doctor gave me his cell phone number. I have called him at any hour. He always answers. He’s a wonderful geriatrician.
  6. We have used ship to shore several times.The connection is great. Sometimes when you call a doctor, you get the answering service, and the doc calls you back. Is there a way to get the docs cell number to call just during the cruise?
  7. Wondering if the parking at the hotels is as safe as cruise parking- under lock and key. I don’t want to leave my car out where others can have access to it.
  8. When I saw your title, I thought it might be her. Haven’t seen her post in a long time. She was so helpful. Hope everything is ok.
  9. We never spoke to our steward, so we didn’t get an ice bucket. I would have been disgusted by the beer bucket. Guys Pig and Anchor was open for lunch at least one day. We walked by it. Lido was bright and we found seats, but at breakfast, the lines were long. I sat at a table while my husband got our food, and it took about 15 minutes for him to come back. We did not use the internet.
  10. When our girls were on their first cruise, we let them stay later at a dance club. They were 16 and 14. A man tried to entice them to come out of the club and walk around with him. They refused but he waited with another man and followed them when they left the club. They were scared and went outside on the deck which was empty. They were lost and very scared. They kept running until they found an area with people around. A Carnival security person walked them back to our cabin. I would never let my children walk around alone on any ship. I am very thankful that they were not raped or hurt in any way.
  11. We had to ask for the spa products which were in our cabin on the second day.. We had no shampoo in the dispenser either. The products were not Elemis like on Sunshine last time. They are named Ocean , and are very small samples. I was able to wash my short hair twice. Best to bring your own. I’m glad I did. Also there was no hand soap provided, so we had to get soap from the dispenser in the shower. The spa cabin is nice, though.
  12. I don’t think they did. I did not see anything and nothing in fun times about that.
  13. Hi, I didn’t feel any rocking until the second sea day. It wasn’t bad to me at all, but some people were seasick. The rest of the sailing was smooth.
  14. It’s on 5 . Go by the casino and through toward the Alchemy Bar.. Check in desk on the left.
  15. I had difficulty with the ap. We just went to the desk and then to dinner.
  16. Hi there, we never went to comedy club, but I’m sure someone will chime in. For anytime dining, you check in on deck 5. If there’s a table, you go right to the dining room. If not, they will give you a pager.
  17. Haha! The hot tub on Serenity was magic!
  18. Also, there is no thellasotherapy pool on Sunrise.
  19. Sorry, I threw them away. Maybe someone else can share them.
  20. The Pig and Anchor was open sometime for lunch, but not every day.
  21. Sorry, I don’t know about lunch places. We didn’t eat lunch. There is a Bonsai restaurant on deck 5. I saw Guy’s Pig and Anchor on deck 10 aft. There was a deli, but I didn’t look at the menu.
  22. Hi there, Serenity is included in your fare. Fitness center is in the spa are but is free for all passengers, 18 and over I think. You can wear a polo shirt and khakis on elegant night. You don’t need a special outfit.Lido, Guy’s burgers , and pizza are available at no charge. You can wear very casual those places. I’m not sure about the pool. We got on at 5:30- right before the muster drill. We were on Sunrise last week, and there were many well behaved children sitting in the lounges with their parents. I never went up to sports square, but my husband jogged up there every day and said it was not crowded. The ropes course closes at sunset, I believe. I found that places cleared out about 4:30 when folks were getting ready for dinner. We were in a spa balcony on deck 10. We really enjoyed the steam rooms and sauna(both co-Ed) Also the heated tile loungers are relaxing. Those areas were practically empty in early evening. We ate dinner late. Ask any other questions if you like.
  23. Hi, I have not sailed Splendor, But Sunshine spa did not have a whirlpool.
  24. How are the offers presented? Do you get an email or post office mailing?
