  1. I see a few people cancelling their booking and booking a cruise slightly further down the road. Rescheduling might be a good idea but booking a cruise within this year may not be so wise. Current info doesn't sound like they have a control on this and treatments may take months to develop . The steps the governments are taking is damage control and not a cure . I think if your cancelling because of fear of the virus or the impact of your travelling plans , you should either book nothing at this time and get the credit or book something over a year out to give the government and its agencies a chance to fix these problems so people can travel safely . If Carnivals employees are stuck on the phone cancelling your trips mutliple times that is not going to help . So if your going on your trips you booked I wish you luck but if you were choose to reschedule use common sense and give the situation a chance to clear up .
  2. I'm booked on a cruise on the Magic and I'm concerned . There are people on that ship that have something that the local government is concerned about . Is Carnival going to replace the staff members tha t have been in contact with these travelers on the next cruise or are they going to let potential carriers infect future guests?Even if they pull them for one cruise that would be something to help control these illnesses.
  3. Some time ago I as researching cruises and ports and I read about the trolleys in San Juan . It seems they are not running no though . Does anyone know if there is a plan to start using the trolleys again ?
  4. One thing that concerns me is that there are some tour operators that list things about if you would like to do tours and the cruise ship offers tours to book thru the cruise but on the carnival site on the excursions offered for the port ( not the specific cruise list) they offer tours to the place I am looking at just not specific activity.
  5. About a week ago I got notified my cruise itinary had changed . Same ports just different days and times . I have not booked excursions yet . I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do in one port and feel it will still be available but the other three ports I was still looking forward to planning and weighing my options. The problem is only the excursions involving the homeport were listed . It has been over a week and still its just Miami excursions. Since 2 of the ports are ports my family has never been to we think we would probably do a Carnival Excursion to make things easy . Just wondering how quickly does Carnival fix issues with seeing excursions after they change itinary .
  6. I had a question for the cruise bar cash . I bought some cruise bar cash for wife using a cc reward . there may be times that I might be the one grabbing the drinks with my room card .Im the one paying the bill at the end either way . If at the end of the cruise she hasnt used the cruise bar cash herself but the room has purchased more then the cruise cash bar credits are the credits just applied to the room charge?
  7. Sad to hear that it might not be on the app anymore. I always get the package with the Canvass print when I go on 7day cruises. I like looking on the app to see the photos without the crowds or the sales people hovering over me . I usually buy a few more prints because I like having a pic of my family at each port we visit the first time together . My wife and I often have trouble choosing which ones we like best but after a few days of looking at them on the balcony having breakfast those choices become a little easier . I'm disapointeded by this news . Carnival makes a lot of money on photos , the use of the hub app made it easier for families like mine to shop for it.
  8. How do you go about warning them can you tell the waiter or is it something that needs to be done prior to that nights meal? I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes . My Dr thinks I should be able to control my levels with a little help in the pill form . My daily scores have been good but he told me if I'm on the cruise its ok to splurge a little and that If needed I could increase my dose in the morning . Im only taking half of what he prescribed for me per his direction and my progress of controlling my levels . That being said there are lot of things on the cruise that will raise my sugar level so any tips to keep that sugar level down would be great to know.
  9. I have a question about these glasses. When you buy the cup initially are you getting a drink in that glass or is that just the price of the cup and then you have to buy the first drink . I know the refills will be a deal because your getting 4 more ounces in that cup .
  10. I saw on a facebook group that buckets were half price for a limited amount of time on embarkation at Red Frog Rum Bar . That would be a great time to get a bucket or two . Does anyone else know any more info on that deal?
  11. I have been to Grand Cayman on cruises a few times did some excursions with the ship and did some snorkeling on my own from Eden Rock . I was thinking of snorkeling the other side . On a previous trip I had drinks at a bar on the other side of the terminal and saw people were snorkeling and a place to rent a locker .The place I was at before has closed and reopened as something else . Does anyone know if there is a place to rent a locker near the Cali Wreck .
  12. The rum stop used to have a deal if you spent a certain amount you got a free large rum cake . The store also had some items that I dont see everywhere . I like tortuga rum akes but prefer Blackbeards, I'm not concerned about getting better deals on bacardi or cuervo , There are things you dont see everywhere that you like you know.
  13. Depends what you like to do . Mahagony bay has a free beach . If you have at least your own snorkle and mask you can save the money it would cost to rent them . Most places that rent the masks will charge what you pay at walmart for one you can keep . Grand Cayman if you were to do snorkling theres a couple spots right near the port that you can rent a locker and snorkle from shore . Theres a restuarant I think it may be called paradise that they feed fish scraps that they clean so it it attracts some fish . You see some big tarpon there . Some people skip going ashore in Belize . As far as getting the advice for the legend . Its always good if you can get to read other peoples trip reports but since the Legend will start doing the western soon , it may be good to read some reports for the Miracle because that is the ship the legend will be replacing on that route . The legend has better amneties then the miracle though.
  14. My wife son and I are going on a cruise that ports in GC . In the past I have either done a short excursion with Carnival or did my own private one that allowed me to do some shopping before I set out to do what I wanted . I know GC has rules about purchasing the alcohol and they bring it to your ship . Unfortunately you dont get to walk around with it and act like a pirate in Georgetown . To be honest I'm not concerned with getting it back till the end of the cruise . If my memory serves me though purchases had to be made by a certain time before the ship leaves. Does anyone know the timelines . I like purchasing from the shop that sells blackbeards rum and rum cakes . I know people might try to point me to ayman islands page but I wanted an answer from Carnival cruisers beause it may be different with another line .
  15. Yeti and similar cups are great to have . Like the previous poster stated they are great for keeping your drink cold. they are good for making less stops at the drink line . My ten year old even brings one . The past few cruises I have been on the room stewards havent been replenishing the ice on multiple days and the in room refrigerators haven't worked that well . Its nice to have a clod option without having to run to the bars . Now if I want an alcohol drink I dont mind a trip to the bar but yeti and similar cups just make it easier.
  16. Thanks for creating this thread . My wife and I drink a little on our cruises but not enough to justify the cheers for the whole trip. We also like to get drinks in port . We dont drink every day but one of the deals we do is pitchers at the comedy club .
  17. Ships may have not burned down but some have caught fire from people smoking. My parents were on a a cruise with 4 ports the first cruise port was in Jamaica . The night before they got to Jamaica someone caused a fire from smoking on their balcony . The passengers near that room on multiple decks had to evacuate their rooms at night and were not allowed back even after the fire . The next morning my parents were told to go to their room with an escort pack all their things because the ship was being evacuated . They and a lot of the other passengers were flown from Jamaica to Atlanta . They were there a day and a half waiting for their flights . Not quite the Carribean Vacation they were hoping for .
  18. thank you I applied so hopefully I get approved and theyy might have what I;m looking for .
  19. I dont know if its due to people using the hub app on their phone and not saving them or people just are not posting them like they used to in their posts like they used to . A while back John Heald had an index page of funtimes but it doesnt appear to have been updated in years . After I book my cruises I like to look at a cruise with a similar itinary to kind of get a n idea of what may be offered on the ship and a ballpark idea of when things may happen. I got two cruises booked and the 2nd one I'm not concerned with just yet because its at a different home port doing different ports but the upcoming trip which is a 7day Western on the Conquest out of Miami. I have done a search on here but I havent found what I'm looking for , its either been Fort Lauerdale 5 , 6 and 8 day cruises which is not what I'm looking for .
  20. I think the idea behind the taste bar was to get you to sample something that may have been venues on newer or refurbished with upgrade ships , That way you might look for that option on a ships you might try on a future voyage . Over time more of those ships had those options .
  21. I liked the old se day brunch . Seems like it lost some options and now there is a charge for juice
