  1. Thanks for all of the thoughtful comments so far. I am feeling a little less apprehensive. What is silent disco, BTW?
  2. We have cruised Carnival 5 times, RCI once and Norwegian once. Wondering how Celebrity differs. To be honest my wife and I are very laid back and we like to be comfortable on vacation. I’m hoping the Celebrity crowd is not too sophisticated for our liking. During the daytime while just kicking around the ship do people where T-shirts and jean shorts and flip-flops? Or is it polo shirts and pleated dressy shorts? We don’t do formal nights in the dining room so on the other nights are jeans (men and/or women) and button up shirts common? Is their karaoke nightly? Generally how is the live music? Rock/pop bands or string quartets? Just trying to get a feel for the vibe in general. Thanks in advance
  3. So my parents, age 82 and 79 are taking their first cruise. They ere told to bring their marriage certificate with them. They don’t have passports and are using birth certificates and state issued ID at boarding. I’ve never heard of the marriage certificate requirement before. Neither of our daughters-in-law needed them with Carnival. Any thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Thanks for those. I have seen those YouTube vids. Just not sure if they are identical Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I still am looking for pics or more info on the layout of the room Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Thank you for that info Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. We have booked an Ultra Spacious Ocean View on EOS, specifically room 8200. I was wondering if someone has photos of this or a similar room. Sleeps 6, 2 in a bunkbed setup that appears to be almost closet-like. I’m wondering how many plugins there are. Is there one in the bunkbed closet? (We have 3 C-paps). Any insight would be helpful. The booking agent said it was 328 sq. ft. but the sample rooms I’ve seen online are either slightly larger or smaller than that. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. Isn't O'Sheehan's part of the inclusive dining? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. So should I assume these meetings are for alcoholics? I've always wondered myself. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Oops!! Good catch. The Jewel Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. I'd love to see some photos of these. We have our first NCL cruise coming up and would like to know what to expect Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. On a bit of a tangent, but referring to the above post, I never needed reading glasses until, while on my first cruise (using the patch) my vision became blurry. I couldn't read a menu onboard. And unfortunately I had to fly cross country alone after the cruise. Made it a bit tricky. I have needed reading glasses ever since and always wondered if the patch somehow triggered this loss of vision. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. For me (5 cruises) it lasts 2-3 weeks. I have a little dizziness and borderline nausea. And for one day I get terribly nauseous, as if I have a stomach flu. This time I'm going to take Dramamine (and ginger. and anything else I think might work) AFTER the cruise. I have begun to wonder if it is caused by withdrawal from the anti-seasickness patch that I wear while onboard....Also, FYI, I never have gotten sick while onboard. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. Thanks. That site has some pretty good info on it Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  16. I've seen deck layouts in various places that are pretty rudimentary, to the point of being slightly confusing due to lack of detail. Is there a site that provides more detailed and colorful deck plans? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  17. And so if we want to have our large pieces taken away the night before can we still take our time getting off the ship on debarkation day? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  18. So, a general question, not specific to any particular ship/cruise. If my group is in no hurry to get off the ship, what's our best strategy. Is it ok to sit around and wait for the crowd to thin out? We will be doing self assist Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  19. Awesome website. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  20. Making our first cruise into the vast Pacific, to Hawaii. In general how are the waves there compared to the waters in the Caribbean? Can I expect some rougher going or similar? I haven't gotten seasick on my first 5 cruises and don't want to🤢. I wear a patch because I am a little susceptible to wooziness. What's been your experience? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  21. Tell me about HAL. One thing I don't want is to have to dress up much and I've heard they do have stricter 'dress codes'(?). Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  22. Appreciate it, but we do have a vacation budget. We've never had a problem on Carnival and never felt we were better than our fellow cruises. Maybe we're just simple folk. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  23. Do you mean Carnival is more laid back? Or Princess is? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  24. Have only cruised Carnival. Any differences? Similarities? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
