  1. Fingers crossed for our 10/31/20 sailing on the Dream. We need this cruise so much!
  2. I absolutely love Saint Greg's reviews here on the Carnival boards. Did my best to copy the start of one of his reviews. Alas, I am technologically challenged. But just search Saint Greg. Thanks, Greg for all your great Carnival reviews and tips!
  3. We were on the Vista in Dec., cabin 5203. The location was great. Loved, loved, loved the Havana pool and bar area as well. However, if we were to do Havana again, it would be on a balcony. We really never used the outside cabana area. People were constantly walking by, and there really was no privacy. We had to keep the curtains closed much of the time (showering, changing clothes) due to lookie loos. Never mind. I will absolutely cruise in a Havana cabana again. I just need to cruise!
  4. Saint Greg, thank you so much! I had been trying to get the 20% discount for two days without luck. The email I received was specific to only one of my bookings. Using your method, I was able to get the 20% off Cheers for three different bookings. You rock!
  5. It may have been a fluke, but I submitted a price protection form on the website on 3/21 and had the approval within a couple of hours. It ended up being an additional $50 OBC and $100 less for the price of the cruise. Carnival was having a sale that ended that day.
  6. That's good information. Thank you for the head's up!
  7. Show me how that works or worked for you in real time? Please show us all how you do not have to make a new deposit if you rebook? Fairy Tale.
  8. Do you have an example of this or whom to contact? We would all be so happy to have this option available through Carnival.
  9. Your 2 hours took me 5 minutes. And I already explained it to you. Good luck on your future bookings!
  10. Hello. Tried to state this earlier.....Your phone time on hold....
  11. Can you show me how this works? Or how this worked for you?
  12. I had a couple of future cruises on auto pay. Cancelled that today. Refund to my original form of payment for my 4/20 cruise, then we'll see how everything plays out. Other than the cruise credit, I am still awaiting the balance of my fully paid-for cruise, the Cheers Package, two wifi packages and a few other items for our stateroom to be credited. Waiting game.
  13. I cancelled our 4/11/20 cruise online at Carnival's website on 3/10 after receiving the email letter. Our penalty amount was $963.00. I then re-booked a new cruise for 2/27/21. You DO have to place a new deposit on the new booking before you can apply for the future cruise credit to be applied to the new booking. With the new booking number I filled out the reimbursement form and submitted it. (BTW, the form would not submit on my computer, but worked using my phone on the CCL website) You will get an auto reply that they received your request, and that once they apply your discount you will receive a confirmation email. I received the confirmation email on 3/14. $963.00 had been applied to my new booking. The fine print on the bottom of the original letter you received gives the instructions on how to complete this process. You do not have to call them.
  14. We just had to cancel our 20th anniversary trip on the Freedom Eastern Caribbean for April 11, and rescheduled for the Vista Western Caribbean for February 2021. If it's all about the ports, keep searching for what looks best for you. If the ship is important....We'd take the Vista. But that's just us. We love the layout, multiple dining options and things to do onboard. I hope you find the right itinerary, ship and a great deal! P.S. We love the sea days!
  15. First Pina Colada on Carnival Vista after boarding (my straw) 12/7/19. Cleaned the stateroom with Lysol wipes awhile later (accidentally left them in the check in luggage!) With FTTF we shared the casino bar with a wedding party. Pretty cool.
