    Carnival Breeze and NFL Playoff games

    Didn't read the thread but on the Breeze in early December important games were broadcast in the Casino AND in the red Frog Pub - in fact it wasn't unusual for ESPN to be on the RFPub's TV's during the day.

    Games on the premium internet?

    I can't speak to the gaming/internet but as for "elegant night"- the bar for dressing up is quite low. If the boys are wearing some cotton slacks like khakis and a polo collared shirt they'll blend in just fine.
  3. The transaction comes thru AMEX as a reservation charge (or something close to that name) with no dates as to when that reservation you're paying for is booked - only that you made a payment. Purchases made in the Fun Shops prior to your cruise do not count as they're posted as such.

    New TV Lineup

    This is great news. My DH has some mobility issues and sometimes just enjoys spending time in the cabin or out on the verranda. He'll enjoy entertainment other than Tru-tv and news other than CNN which we found to be mainly political. We also enjoy catching a bit of tv while having room service breakfast or while taking turns getting ready for dinner.

    Soda in ports

    We found many/most of the prices in the San Juan Walgreens were in line with continental US prices. I paid around $3.89 for a 12 pack of 8 oz Sprites. Much cheaper than buying soft drinks on the ship.

    Soda in ports

    We like to restock our ginger ale in San Juan where there is a Walgreens across the street from the piers

    Table for 5

    You can contact John Heald the week prior to your sailing and give him your request. Have the sailing dates, booking numbers and cabin numbers handy. Then check when you board. If it's still not right see the Maitre d to re-request

    No show to MDR dining reservation

    Another side of this is that if you're considering a fixed seating table with other passengers but know ahead of time that you intend to skip the MDR a number of times it may be more considerate to choose YTD or to request a fixed seating table for just your party. And no .... I don't feel others are responsible for my enjoyment by attending dinner .... just mentioning something that might fall under the tab "common courtesy" toward those who enjoy the mdr large table fixed seating experience.
  10. Same with us. We stay at Country Inn & Suites with the cruise package - park the car there for the week and use their shuttle to and from the port. In December our 2 room suite (a lovely surprise that it was 2 rooms) faced north and we were greeted with a view of the Breeze's Whale Tail in the distance.

    Breeze - formal nights

    We did this itinerary in December. Elegant nights were the first Sea Day and San Juan according to my saved Fun Times.

    Cheers package for Pregnant Wife?

    Can't say I disagree but thought I'd add the extras for Cheers as nobody else mentioned them. Newbies to Carnival or others who sailed other lines may not have known

    Gratuities Increase!!!!

    I understand that there is at least one other cruise line that in order to remove or reduce your auto-grats you have to fill out and sign a form explaining why you felt this was necessary. The reason given for the form is so that the line can improve the service in the future. I hear that after the form was instituted the lines at GS to remove tips went wayyyyy down
