  1. Well, via youtube, a commenter identified the camera used on the ship as a DJI Osmo Pocket and the underwater portions of the excursion were confirmed to be with a Gopro Hero9. Still no comment on how they are managing such good audio while facing away from the camera. Still curious about your mic setup! Loving the videos and enthusiasm! And if you had been on Celebrity Edge, Captain Kate would've invited you to the bridge to discuss the pants lol.
  2. What camera and microphone setup are you using? Sometimes she'll be facing away talking and there is no discernible change, are you using two microphones or overlaying during editing? Great production quality!
  3. I was going to answer that I regularly take my pocket knife and leatherman on cruises and never had any issues, but then decided to search the actual rules. Click on the section titled "What items am I not allowed to bring?" Knives, scissors and open razors. (Recreational dive knives are allowed, but must be held in the custody of the Guest Services Manager or Chief Security Officer and must be checked out/in by the owner for dive excursions during the cruise. Large scissors used by scrapbook and quilting enthusiasts are at times permitted with prior notification from the Security Services Department, but are held on board in the same manner as dive knives.) Just thought I would pass along both real world advice (8 cruises, most recently Sept 2019) and no issues. And the actual rules that are posted. I'd interpret it as: "bring something, you won't cry over being confiscated."
  4. The way that I typically navigate goccl is one of two ways: 1) Go to google and search whatever I want + site:goccl.com Example search 2) Start here and click around: https://help.goccl.com/app/home (Besides itineraries, if you find the Staterooms and Ship Features for your ship, it acts like an index of all the info for a given ship)
  5. What I was looking for was something that stated number of passengers per cabin. I still haven't been able to find that. A quick way to know that 5227, 5228, 5235 & 5236 sleep 3 for example.
  6. Miss this thread. It was the last time cruising was fun for me.
  7. Interesting! I only thought you could do holds through PVP. Didn't know you could do them on your own on the website. Thanks for the info.
  8. No one knows anything concrete yet, here is a quote from JH facebook page in regards to this. Chris is the CCO of Carnival. It does look like the cruisehive article might have been a mistake or mixup.

  10. @MitchYngMuscleDad - what did you find out about the sunrise and saunas in the locker room?
  11. https://carnival.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bszByug2EjwyxEx That's the form, but you should've received one that was a personal link for you, that has your email info embedded in it. You might can fill out this one, not sure. Where it's blue and says this form - is that not a clickable link?
  12. Funny story related to this theme. Once I saw a guy pull up in the first handicap spot in my store. Young guy in a mustang convertible, music blaring. He gets out and an older cadillac driver pull up and starts cussing him out about how he's a fit young man and he's a disgrace to humanity, how his generation is rude and need to respect elders. Eventually saying that the cops will be called, because he had parked in a HC spot. The young man says "go ahead" and pulls up his pant legs to reveal that he was a double amputee. One of his prosthetic's had a purple heart painting and the other an American flag. The look on the old timers face was priceless. I looked at the convertible later and he clearly had PH HC tags. It's true we never know what someone else has going on, no matter how fit they appear.
  13. On the site there is a checkbox for "Accessible Stateroom Needed" - if any are available it'll say, if they are sold out a red banner pops up. I can't remember what the red banner says, but basically no cabins available that meet that criteria. I was seeing the red banner for a month and then past 3 days, FAC's have opened up on our Alaska cruise. I was planning to upgrade in-laws from an AAC to FAC, but didn't make the call and the cabin I wanted looks to be rebooked. I wasn't ready for the long hold times. Now the FAC suite is open, but it's crazy expensive. So for now they'll stay. And my experience was the same as above, had to go through a special department when dealing with these type of cabins and fill out special forms. That was why the upgrade didn't happen. I went through my PVP like usual, but she couldn't help since it was an accessible cabin. And I didn't want to deal with that phone call at 10:30 at night.
  14. That is similar to the princess form: https://princess.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3IPGcxcN0jSk6c5 Here is the carnival one, with the personalized bit stripped out: https://carnival.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bszByug2EjwyxEx
  15. Nearly a 100 page thread and all of us following his shenanigans. Maybe kind of "by himself"
  16. I know you're joking. But on our most recent cruise, there was a couple that were on 18 B2B cruises in a row. It was a "retirement gift" to themselves. I wonder what the record is.
  17. Further text from the Princess announcement. So at least in that case, they've extended the FCC beyond what CCL has done so far. So if it goes that far, they might extend the cruising window. That would be awesome.
  18. I think they are saying certain itineraries are only offered this year and not next year. And also, thus far the FCC only applies to cruises through 3/31 next year. So if you are wanting to go to Alaska, then you are stuck with cruising this year or taking the loss. (If you are set on cruising to Alaska.)
  19. We cruise Alaska in May out of Seattle and currently are not planning to cancel, because the re-booking is only through March, so Alaska cruisers are SOL. I don't understand why they put that limitation. For just me and my wife, we wouldn't care and would cruise anywhere. But my in-laws are also going and will only cruise Alaska. If I could receive both credits and use them for us, I might would cancel both and pay them back for their portion. I might call once everything settles down and can reach easily enough. From what I understand the call volume has been insane last few days.
  20. Several times during your review, you said the time 10 pm, but back home it's midnight. Did you ever make the adjustment? I noticed during review many times you were awake very early, 5am-7am. Was that mainly because of not adjusting to time change? Or are you commonly up that early?
  21. They also hold a room for 24 hours, which is beneficial. Otherwise, not much difference. I've never seen the "have access to more than what is online." But it doesn't surprise me.
