  1. Love the Miracle! Spent 15 days on her from Long Bch to Hawaii + back. Spirit class ships are the best IMO.
  2. I think you're still mistaken about the safe operation. Whatever card you use to lock it, is the only card that will unlock it. As it should be. Once open, you can use another card to lock it + it then becomes the only card which will unlock it. Most newer ships have gone to a 4 digit code. Whatever code you use to lock it, is the only code that will unlock it. Once unlocked, any other 4 digit code can be used to repeat the process.
  3. The lines are labeled + there's usually someone checking your boarding pass and directing you to the correct line. Just wanted to mention it, so you knew not to stand with the masses in the wrong line. Dockers are actually good ANY nite in ANY dining room including the steakhouse. Jackets are never required and he won't feel a bit out of place w/o one. I follow the dress codes, but NEVER dress up. Just too much to pack + haul around.
  4. Yup, nice rooms, good food, fabulous pool, shuttle to port.
  5. Yeah, with FTTF, ignore your boarding time and show up 10:30 or so as suggested. I'd also remind the porter your bags are priority + give him a decent tip. Then, when you enter the terminal, look for 2 lines. You'll be entering the expedited line with us platinum guests. One last thing, Carnival now offers anytime dining. We love it and use it every cruise. Welcome back to Carnival, Sensation was also our first cruise + we're from Dover, OH.
  6. As said above, a statement should suffice. If it's a recent purchase and you need it before the next statement date, I'd take an online snapshot of your acct positions. Nowadays, the actual stock certificate almost never has your name on it and you never see it. Usually, the shares are in the broker's name and you hold the shares in the street name. This allows the broker to execute a trade w/o you first mailing in the certificates. Also allows the broker to lend them (short) to somebody else and make money on your holdings, but that's another can of worms.
  7. Ours also came back with an incorrect seating time. I replied to the conf email + it was corrected.
  8. We've done several Journey cruises + love them! In fact, we just booked another for Jan 2021 on Pride. They definitely attract an older crowd. If you don't have at least 100 sea days, you're a rookie on these cruises. One guy had 1500 plus sea days on our last Journey cruise. So if you're platinum........no big deal!!!
  9. I also reserved Teppanyaki early this month thru the website.
  10. Yup, sailed the Miracle to Hawaii + back, loved the ship. Just got off Legend to Alaska, loved it also. Booked Panorama for Jan + already dreading the lines. Soooo, booked Pride Panama canal Journey cruise for Jan 2021
  11. We cruise in the winter every year, usually Jan. Being from Ohio, it breaks up the long winter, prices are cheaper, and the kids are in school instead of on the boat. That said, there's a few things to keep in mind. First, Bahamas are NOT in the Caribbean. I've been to Bahamas in the winter when it was in the 40s. Caribbean doesn't care what season it is, weather is great year round. If you're sailing from east coast, I wouldn't sail from any ports north of Canaveral and even it can be cool first/last days of the cruise. Same from west coast, if you sail outta Long Bch in Jan, first/last day can be cool.
  12. The group doing the main shows couldn't harmonize to save their souls. It was painful to listen, we walked out twice. Saw the exact same Motown show on the last cruise and they were great. The cast on Legend needs work!
  13. Just got home from this cruise, first time to Alaska. Loved, loved, loved the scenery! Hated, hated, hated the weather! It really wasn't bad for Alaska, but I'm used to sailing in January to the Caribbean. Nice change from our weather in Ohio. This cruise, it was 30 degrees colder than at home and I paid to go there. Worst part was all the cloths yah gotta take and all the changing yah gotta do during the trip. I did remember to bring 2 pairs of swimming trunks, never took either out of the suitcase. But, Alaska is gorgeous and a must do! IMO, best port is Ketchikan. Best excursion hands down, seaplane over 5 glaciers in Juneau. Pleasantly surprised by Victoria BC, beautiful port/city. About the ship, love the Spirit class, did Miracle to Hawaii. Found the decor a little dark on the Legend but the layout is great. Chandaliers in the MRD hideous. Have no idea why they put waterworks on the back. Entertainment in theater was poor! Food, about the same as other ships. Steakhouse was OK, not great. Bonzai Sushi was great! Platinum gift was a lanyard.......how sad. Do they REALLY think the platinum cruisers need a lanyard? They used to give them away in the casino. Speaking of, hammered the slots, got back all my wife lost. Seattle very interesting port to sail in/out. Anyway, epic experience, but I'll stick to the warm ports going forward.
