  1. Well, I will be different! I am a chronic over-packer, I know it and embrace it (and we drive)! My luggage is plentiful and heavy. However, I figure if this 58 year old woman can lift it, then it is good. 😂 I have never measured or weighed it. As for storage, each piece stores into the next size piece and it all fits easily under the bed and is not at all a problem. Basically, if you can lift it you shouldn't need to worry about the weight. Don't worry about room as there is plenty of room under the bed. Don't go nuts (even I don't go too crazy), but you don't have to try and cram everything into a couple of carry-ons. And, I have to say that I am truly impressed by those that can.
  2. Thanks. I thought it sounded kinda weird, but you just never know.
  3. This may seem like a strange question, but we have only been to Half Moon Cay once on our first cruise. If we decide to get back on the ship (Breeze) for lunch, what will be opened? Someone posted that nothing is opened on the ship at all for lunch when at HMC. Sounds strange so I figured I'd see if anyone here knows. Thanks!
  4. Agree! We are on the same sailing as you are. I missed Dr. E when he was on the Magic by about 2-3 weeks. I am hoping he will be ours. I've heard a lot of good things about him.
  5. You and I need to get in there and tell them how to do this! LOL I'm not sailing until October, but it would be really nice if they figured out some better packages before then!
  6. Then you clearly haven't been to China. 😃
  7. That is ridiculous. If you don't have a PP, then obviously you haven't been to China. And this would be for the government to make that call as they are they ones who say you don't need one for a closed loop, not the cruise lines.
  8. That does make sense and what a totally ridiculous way to do it! It was set up to fail. I'm talking back & forth on FB with someone on John's page. He mentioned the formal ones too. I suggested an all casual package with options to purchase your formal ones at a discount. That would encourage people to purchase more, but not have the excess of those who abuse the formal pictures. All they have to do is scan our cards like D scans the bands. They already have the tech to scan them when we leave & return. They just need handheld devices for photographers. John did say more packages were in the works, but didn't say when or what type.
  9. Interesting, I never heard about that. I just posted on John Heald's FB page about it. I wonder how D keeps it in control? Maybe they could implement a certain # of portraits and then all your casual ones? I would think that would work. Say you figure 1 portrait picture per day of cruise? I'll be interested to see what John says.
  10. The problem with the package (the only one they offer), is that basically you are getting the canvas for free. I would much rather have an assortment 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 instead of the canvas. I'd like to see a package like Disney has at the park where you pay $169 ahead of your trip (or $199 during) and you get to download every single picture taken of you during your visit. Think how cost effective that would be for a group or family. You could just link your accounts (like you do or dinner) and all the pictures of you and your linked group would be there for one price. I'll bet if they tried it, it would be a great hit. No more wasting time going through thousands of photos and sometimes never finding the one you know they took. You could check out your photos at your leisure. Or even on the way home! No more waste of paper or ink, more environmentally friendly - isn't that what Carnival wants? OK - rant over! LOL
  11. I do the same thing. My hubby laughs about it. My favorite sea day is the one where the towel animals are all over the Lido deck. Last time it was amazing! So many towel people.
  12. Never had a problem getting the same thing without the $28 bribe. We will tip extra after the cruise, but we don't "tip" at the beginning because they don't need that to do a great job. They know they will get it at the end.
  13. They did end up adding the Both later. In our cruise October 17 we got a card and it had both. In July with my daughter, they asked.
  14. I haven't been on the boards for a while, but I do remember you always having some good intel. LOL Any other teasers??
