  1. Don't really know. I just live out of my suitcase so I want it accessible.
  2. I usually cruise in a balcony but decided to do a B2B at the very last minute, so had to change cabins. I was trying to go budget so decided on an interior. This is 10345, just a regular interior, sleeps up to 4. It was horrid. As you can see, the bunk beds are not recessed and hang out over the other beds. That is a hard metal frame there, and if you are not careful sitting up, you will knock yourself out on that corner that sticks out. Such a ridiculous design! I had to constantly be aware when I woke up to roll over and out from under the frame and don't just sit straight up. And the room is just very tiny, along with the tiny bathroom. I honestly do not see how 4 people could legit stay there. I initially had a king setup, but asked the cabin steward to switch to twins just so I could get my suitcase off the floor and get a bit more space. I do like chilling in my cabin and I was starting to feel a bit claustrophobic lol. Back to my balconies. :)
  3. I have 2 cruises that are past final payment and on one I was able to switch roommates - and at the same time upgraded to get the Cheers package, just paid the difference. Another cruise I upgraded my cabin and again, just paid the difference, also past final payment. Your travel agent is there to help you. I would definitely call and ask.
  4. With this new system, you are supposed to attend your muster station pretty much immediately upon boarding. You can get up to two drinks...if you haven't done muster by then, they are supposed to cut you off until you do it. I did the first 2 sailings on the Mardi Gras and on the second sailing, you could tell the CD, The Flying Scotsman, was getting more and more irritated over the PA trying to get people to do their muster. I mean it literally takes 2 minutes so I don't see why it is so difficult.
  5. Did you get all your VIFP perks? I don't gamble so never use the slot entry, but it was fun playing a bit with the $25 they gave me. If you didn't know about it, I know it says August, but I would go ask for it anyway since August was yesterday. :) You have to ask at the cashier and they put it on your card.
  6. Hopefully SG won't mind if I post a pic...I ate dinner at Emeril's one night. I know I'm usually curious when it says 'market price' on the menu. So these are the blue stone crab claws (MP). I paid $30 for about 17 claws. They are cold in a kind of green olive tapenade. So good.
  7. I had my mask down too walking around OSJ and passed multiple officers and none of them said anything. So like with anything else, guess it just depends. lol.
  8. We were talking with the ladies at Fortune Teller and asking if we would see them again in December when we cruise, but they weren't sure. They said Carnival is rotating crew around so more people get a chance to work.
  9. You mentioned the bathroom doors. Are they the individual ones that are touch free and you swipe your hand over the green circle? Just an fyi, the ladies were discovering that even if someone is in one of those, you can still swipe and the door will open. I must have walked in on at least 3 ladies doing their thing and had to apologize and back out. I learned not to use those particular types. lol Not sure if it was an issue with the guys. It was a big complaint in our FB groups. I can't remember if you drink coffee? Just a tip, everyone goes to JavaBlue in the morning, you can get the same drinks at Bar Della Rosa. I would go there and it would be empty. Although now that there has been a few sailings, it might be just as crowded. Maybe you already discovered this. You can only push 3 buttons in the elevator. If you push more, it will reset and need a do-over. Its to stop kids from swiping and just selecting all of them. And I agree you need 2 weeks to see the ship. Once Heald was on board and showing his videos, I ended up booking a B2B. 😄
  10. I was on the 7/31 and 8/7 sailing. Looking forward to your take on things SG. :) The ladies at Fortune Teller are awesome. Ana and Briana especially. They also work the Serenity bar during the day. New Moon is my new favorite drink. Ana also makes a mean dirty.🍸 It was so fun because it turns out I sailed with Briana in 2015.
  11. Well, I do get the entire $600 OBC for my cancelled cruise. And when I use my 25% milestone credit, it will be 25% of the double fare in OBC. So there are a few very small silver linings lol. and sorry @KmomChicago didn't mean to hijack your thread.
  12. Don't get me started on how I've paid double for years as a solo and Carnival gives zero appreciation to us that do that. And yes, I'm doing it willingly, but barely. lol At least I'm finally Diamond on the 31st. :)
  13. Yes, Swirls is excellent for breakfast! With a Bloody Mary. Or Bloody Maria. Or Mimosa. 😀 Good lord, July 31st can't get here soon enough lol.
