  1. On the Breakaway, are all the balconies the same in the "B6" Extended Balcony Cabins or are some smaller than others? I am in Cabin 9712 and the balcony appears to be smaller than others.
  2. Most activities on Spice H2O are over around midnight. We usually ended our day there so I think you are safe unless you retire very early. The one sound we enjoyed on those cabins is the sound of the wake from the props.....sounds like a waterfall. Great to go to sleep with. We always kept our balcony door open.
  3. Thank you Keith.... I have heard of these angle cabins and there seems to be great appeal for them.....why? What category is this and what decks can they be found on the Breakaway? Don
  4. What is the difference between a regular balcony cabin and "Large Balcony B6 Category Cabin?" Is there any difference in theses cabins as far as location and deck? I am wondering why many of these cabins are already sold out on a cruise I am booking that is already more than a year away. What is the appeal? I've always liked the aft facing cabins but the price is right for this category.
  5. That seems to be the rule, but I love to bring a beer to my cabin to enjoy on the balcony after a hot day in port so I go to my favorite bar on the way to my cabin and place 2 bucks on the bar with my card and request two beers uncapped. I've always gotten them.
  6. I have been in the Haven on the Breakaway and Escape and we always make show and dining reservations with the Concierge the day we board. And they are fantastic when making changes throughout the cruise....never an issue. Also, they escort you to the shows where "Haven seating" is provided.....usually about 25 minutes before the shows start. This is one of the special perks of booking the Haven.
  7. What ship in January 2020 are you on. I am on the Bliss in January 2020 and have not heard about any changes in our itinerary (including St. Maarten).
  8. Thanks so much for your quick responses....greatly appreciated. Don
  9. It has been over 15 years since I have been on a Carnival ship. We will be celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary on the Sunshine in 2021. We would like to have our own table for two on the cruise for lunch and dinner. Are they readily available? Having been an exclusive NCL cruiser over the last several years, we always have that table for two with their "Freestyle Dining Policy." Wondering if the same holds true for Carnival. Am I better off signing up for a "late seating" or the "Open Seating" to get that "table for two?" Don
  10. Thank you so much for your answers......greatly appreciated. I just read your answer about the weight....makes me feel that I can do this although the video I saw looked as though the steering wheel was very close to the person. I assume the steering wheel can be adjusted for the rider. That is interesting that they have single and double karts. Would you know what times the karts run each day (e.g. 9-10)? Do you recall the prices for a 7 day or "cruise pass?" I heard the night course is really nice and better than the daytime...any opinion on that? Our Roll Call is going to try and set up the Karts as an activity. I'm wondering if any other Roll Calls have tried to do this with the NCL staff onboard.
  11. Thanks for the information, but I was hoping that someone might have specific answers to my questions without of having to search through numerous threads. Perhaps someone has been on the Bliss and knows the answers to these specific questions. I did a search and could not find this information. If you have that knowledge, could you please share. I have spent hours reading about the Bliss on different threads on this forum and have not seen an answer to my questions and was hoping to see if any of the hundreds of people who have commented on the Bliss on this forum could answer my specific questions. But thanks for your comment. It was the only response I have received so far.
  12. Going on the Bliss this January.... I have some questions: What is the cost? I heard there are different plans...such as a day pass, week pass, etc. We are on a 14 day cruise....do they have a "cruise plan?" Does anyone have any information on this. Also, are their weight restrictions? I weigh 270 pounds, hoping to get down to 250 by cruise time. And my 11 and 14 year old grandsons are also going on the Bliss in the future....can they ride together or can the 11 year old ride by himself? Thank you.
  13. What about the weight restrictions? I'm 270 pounds!
