  1. The last couple of times we have gone our entire group was in shorts because that is what we all had on. You will see a little bit of everything. There were plenty of people in shorts and also in dresses. You will be fine in whatever you choose.
  2. It took us 13 cruises. We started in 2010 and became platinum on our cruise in April 2019.
  3. Thank you for the responses! We are booked on the Carnival Panorama for November 2020. We have never been to California or this side of Mexico, so we are really looking forward to it.
  4. Looking forward to your review as always! We are sailing on the Panorama for a Mexican Riviera cruise in November 2020 and are really looking forward to it as we have only done Caribbean cruises. Happy Anniversary to you and your wife! We flew to Maui for our 25th anniversary....we love Hawaii!!
  5. Thank you for the responses! I think we will look at November instead and hopefully it won't be as hot. We are from South Texas so we are used to hot & humid.
  6. We are going to book a Mexican Riviera cruise for 2020. We are thinking the end of September or in October. We typically do Caribbean cruises so I have no idea about the weather in the Mexican Riviera. Will it still be warm in October? I know the weather is unpredictable, just looking for a little insight. Thank you!
  7. They are included in the cheers package. We didn't buy the drink package, but we brought 12 bottles of champagne on board and then went to the lido and got juice and hung out by the back pool the whole morning and drank our mimosas.
  8. Looking forward to the rest of your review! We are considering the 11 day Journey cruise to Hawaii in September 2020. We love Maui and are excited for the chance to visit again.
  9. No offense taken....thanks for your reply!!
  10. Once again, I know what the fee is for. The OP asked for any recent experience on corkage fees and I was just stating my experience.
  11. I understand that and know exactly what they say the corkage fee is for. I was just stating my experience. There is no way we were going to pay a $15/bottle corkage fee for a $10 bottle of champagne for mimosas. In all of our cruises, we have never been charged when we bring our own wine to the dining room. I have no issue with it, I just choose not to pay it and will consume my champagne elsewhere on the boat and not pay a corkage fee. I spend plenty on alcohol elsewhere on the ship, so I'm not paying to uncork the few bottle I brought from home.
  12. We just got off the Valor last week. One morning our group of 12 went to the dining room for the sea day brunch. We brought 6 bottles of champagne with us to have mimosas. The waiter had no problem with us and went to get us juice. A few minutes later he came over and said that his boss had told him that he needed to charge us $15 per bottle. Needless to say we passed and just took them up to the Lido after breakfast and enjoyed them there. We have taken wine on many cruises and never had a problem, but it was a no go on this one. Lately we just pour a glass for each of us in our room before dinner and then just carry it to dinner to avoid the charge. I think its ridiculous that they allow you to bring it on and you can enjoy it anywhere else on the ship with no charge but if you take it in the dining room they want to charge you. We always bring our own corkscrew so it's not like we need help opening it and in the case of the champagne we popped our own corks, but I love Carnival so its just one of those things I ignore.
  13. I would definitely book a regular balcony. It will be plenty of room for 2 people and it is nice to just sit outside on the balcony sometimes and relax and read or watch the waves go by.
  14. We cruised to Roatan 3 times last year, and we missed it each time. We have decided that we were not meant to go there. Twice we missed it because of high winds and one time another ship had run over the dock the day before so we weren't able to dock.
