  1. Thank you for taking time to write the review! I'm enjoying it so far. Do you happen to have any Fun-Times from the cruise that you could share on here? Also, was the confetti cheesecake a dessert at the Lido buffet? I am looking forward to the next part of your review.
  2. Interesting observation. I sure hope they have a deli onboard. One possibility could be they are going to have a new branded space that will serve sandwiches and this feature hasn't been officially announced yet. This only a guess.
  3. Unfortunately, the show Far From Over is no longer on the Carnival Valor. The ship received Playlist Productions during summer 2017. I cruised on the ship in late June 2017 and the Playlist Productions installation was going on during my cruise and I went on the ship again in June/July 2018 and all of the shows were Playlist. I enjoyed Far From Over and wish it was still onboard. However, its Playlist Productions replacement equivalent Studio VIP was very good!
  4. Great news! I'm hoping for the agreement to be finalized soon. I am also very curious to see how Carnival will choose to compete in Galveston if an Oasis Class ship comes.
  5. I like the Sunshine's Serenity concept as well, but I think they didn't want to change the ship's structure too much because that would have added more time to the dry-dock.
  6. The ship's homeport starting in April 2019 will be Norfolk, but the ship will reposition to New York in later May 2019. In October 2019, the ship will reposition again to Ft. Lauderdale.
  7. The Carnival Triumph was one of my favorite ships and I was a bit disappointed to hear the ship will receive a name change following the big upcoming dry-dock. When I saw Carnival's official press release I opened a copy of the Carnival Sunrise's deck plan and a copy of the Carnival Triumph's to compare the deck plan's side by side. Although many areas are being changed due to the addition of several features, the ship's overall layout will continue to remain the same. If you would like to read my comparison it is posted on my personal cruise blog: http://www.embarkandaway.com/general-cruise-blog/carnival-sunrise-vs-carnival-triumph-comparing-the-renovated-ship I tried to make this comparison as detailed as possible because I am personally curious about every little change that will occur to the ship. Unfortunately, we don't have renderings of the interior yet, but these will probably be available when the interactive deck plan is posted by Carnival. Hope this helps!
  8. And the review is officially done! I will still be checking here for questions, so please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you to everyone for your nice words and comments. I hope you enjoyed the review!
  9. Day 5 is now posted! Sorry for the delay. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  10. Day 4 Part 1 is now posted. Thank you to everyone for the nice comments so far. I'm glad to hear people are enjoying the review & pictures.
  11. Day 3 Part 1 is posted! I will have Day 3 Part 2 online as soon as possible. Thank you everyone for the feedback so far. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  12. I think this will be great for Galveston to have three cruise terminals. The cruise industry has grown significantly over the past decade for Galveston. I remember the days when the Carnival Ecstasy & Conquest were the only year round ships and Royal Caribbean came seasonally. Since Royal Caribbean currently uses Terminal #2 on Sundays, I wonder if once the terminal is built whether or not they will continue using terminal 2 on Sundays or if another cruise line will get to use the space. It will be interesting to see if this frees space for another cruise line to depart from Galveston too. I would imagine Royal Caribbean would try to use their new terminal as much as possible, especially if they pay for it.
  13. I finally got Day 2 posted! Sorry it took me a long time to get the pictures uploaded to the blog.
  14. It is very good! And the best part is you don't have to be a kid to order it!
