  1. Ew. Will always have a special place in my pit of hatred for the Saints for their bounties and what they did to my boy Favre.
  2. Mmm fried bologna and potato chip sammich. Thanks Blerk! Now I gotta make one.
  3. Lmao no one said their question was invalid? Tone down the hostility bro. I was simply relating my experience with Carnival and boarding a ship. Sorry if that upsets you. Platinum and Diamonds are allowed to drop off their luggage upon embarkation. Simple as that. No invalidating, no disputing, no saying the TC is wrong. I’m simply telling my experience from July.
  4. They literally told us to remove our mask before standing in front of the screen.
  5. Not if you’re platinum/diamond. My email specifically said I was allowed to drop my luggage off even though the room may not be ready. So dropped off I did. No problem.
  6. Was on the Horizon July 18th. Been home pretty much a month now, myself nor anyone else in my group for Covid. People are making this out to be much bigger than it is. I rather be on a ship with 95% vaccinated folks than go to my local grocery store. When I’m home, I instacart my groceries. Peeps are nuts!
  7. Yep. I unsubbed after that. Seemed super melodramatic to me, they were on like 4 cruises since the restart. But I felt the precautions Carnival took even before the mask and the test, were good enough.
  8. You’re most likely absolutely right. Just nothing surprises me these days. So it could happen. Lol
  9. If you’re platinum/diamond, you can drop luggage off. Don’t expect the room to be ready nor your sail and sign cards to be available. Didn’t get ours until 1:30. But doesn’t hurt to check and see.
  10. They truly are awesome. All the different olives oh and bacon, yes bacon folks! Not counting the veggie infused vodka is a treat as well. They let me try some by itself and it’s quite tasty.
  11. A lot can change between now and then! For whatever it’s worth, on recent Horizon cruises I’ve seen pics of people with the cans of Mich Ultra.
  12. Definitely food for thought! So many lines to choose from. However, sounds like NCL kinda caters to the solo folks with their staff organizing things and what not. Hmmm, hard to make a choice! Ok, so I’m 39 about to be 40, I want a fun atmosphere but I also want relaxed and don’t wanna hear loud music all the time when I’m trying to have a conversation at a bar or something. Carnival always has loud freaking music playing in most bars and it makes it very hard to communicate. Are other lines like this?
  13. Thanks Firefly! You’re the bestest!
  14. I’d have to do a balcony, so I guess I’m screwed on cost. Not a big deal, it is what it is. Thank you all for sharing your experiences and insight! I’ve learned quite a lot. Now to put what I’ve learned to practice! Still a little nervous, but Halloween cruise here I come! Maybe…..
  15. Happy bday mom!!!! I’ll be enjoying my 40th on the Mardi Gras in September.
  16. Most definitely will look at my options, but there’s nothing like getting first hand accounts of others experiences. Honestly it’s a little nerve racking to consider lol. Will I be bored? Will I get into trouble? Will I make friends? Will I have a good time? I totally appreciate your help! I’m a bit of a “chef” myself, except they call me a Pitmaster.
  17. Definitely considering NCL. As a first time soloer it sounds like my best bet. I just hope folks are as friendly on NCL as they are on Carnival, I’m all about making connections when I cruise.
  18. Sniff, I got moved. Hopefully this is an active forum?
  19. Whoa! Thanks! I’ve been wanting to try NCL for a while now, admittedly for the all you can eat wings at their Irish pub,(odd reason I know, but I love wings) so this is a great endorsement! I’ll definitely check out the solo forum. Wasn’t aware there was one! Appreciate the info! Thank you.
  20. Ah ok. Maybe I should hit up the RCL boards then. Good advice! Thank you!
