  1. The hostess at Johnny Rockets told me I could eat there as often as I wanted. 😮 I'd have expected a daily limit of maybe 3 or 4 visits based on the $35 a la carte credit and JR's usual "cover," but she seemed certain it was effectively unlimited. Not sure if that was a "charter" thing or if it's their normal policy.
  2. Actually, they told me the Unlimited package DID include Playmakers (presumably a $35 credit). Also, dinner at Izumi was included but, as someone noted, it was a $10 upcharge for a combo or a second entree protein. It also includes effectively unlimited dining at Johnny Rockets. As far as the heralded "specialty lunch on seadays" thing, that was not available at all on our sailing because it was a charter. I advised them that, since the shipboard offerings for the "Unlimited" Dining Plan differed so much from their website's description, they really shouldn't offer it p
  3. Egads at the confusion. I guess I'll just have to check with the specialty restaurants after boarding, as suggested. I don't expect too many "takers" at the specialty restaurants during this charter cruise, but I also don't remember the Unlimited Dining Package being offered to us in the past, either. (There are MANY differences in offerings; for example, no Suite Lounge or concierge service and no alcoholic drink packages available.)
  4. As a follow-up, I'm booked on the Indy for Tuesday's charter sailing and the Unlimited Dining Package description states that Izumi IS included, but with a $10 upcharge. This would be consistent with that $35 credit for "a la carte" dining venues (as it also states), but since Izumi's price is $45, the $10 surcharge would cover the difference. It also states that seaday lunch in specialty restaurants is also included gratis, but with no further details OR whether reservations are required for lunch. (?)
  5. That was our experience on the Magic and also the Vista (with minor variations on the items). Prior to that on Conquest-class ships we saw the "Pizza Pirate Plus" menu from 11 pm until 1am or 2 am, with lasagna every night and a rotating entree (like sausage-and-pepper, chicken parm, etc.) each night.
  6. Sea Day Brunch -- it's seriously one of the best meal experiences on Carnival. Also, always on the last sea-day, there's the Behind the Fun tour.
  7. Woah.... Lest we forget, one of Royal's Oasis-class ships failed its FIRST CDC inspection after arriving here in the States, as a brand-new ship. Also, CDC's records show that Carnival's ships have a lower incidence of norovirus than Royal. Your experience was subpar, but there's no need for all the histrionics. Our last few cruises on Carnival have been great...and meanwhile, the hallway carpet on Independence of the Seas was so filthy, I had to get a photo of it. (It looked like it hadn't been steam-cleaned in a decade.)
