  1. I did not realize that there were two different menus. I just knew they had good Italian food for free during lunch. Thanks for clearing things up for me. I look forward to enjoying lunch (and possibly dinner) there.
  2. Cruising on the Carnival Radiance in September. The itinerary has us in Boston 4-10 pm. We usually like taking a HOHO bus to see the sights and get off to do more exploring, but I don't think they will run that late. Any other suggestions for evening tours?
  3. I am booked for the New England Canada cruise on the Radiance in September. When I cruised on the Dream a few years ago, the Cucina del Capitano restaurant was free for lunch, but charged for dinner. Will it be the same on the Radiance?
  4. Love, love, love the cove balcony. I always book one if its available. Close to the water so you really feel like you're cruising. Love to hear the waves at night. They are also shady and more private.
  5. We will be flying into NYC to catch a Carnival cruise in mid September. Is it easier to fly into JFK or LaGuardia? Taxi or Uber to port? Any idea on the cost to get there? Thanks!
  6. We pick morning and ask the steward to just do a quick check in the evenings to see if we need fresh towels or beach towels replaced. No need for turn down service.
  7. I enjoy the MDR-I love being waited on and served several courses. I usually travel with a group of friends and we may go our different ways throughout the day, but we always meet up for dinner.
  8. I've gotten a survey after each cruise I've taken. Crew members tell me that they can receive bonus days off and those crew members that receive the most praises are publicly recognized amongst the staff. Enough praises can help with a promotion. I take photos of the dining room table card with serving staff listed and the info card from my room steward to make sure I get the names spelled correctly. I have also asked the bar staff to write down their names for me so I can remember them on my survey. They all work very hard and I am happy to help give them any rewards they can get.
  9. We used VIP Express shuttle from Houston hotel to the port and back to the airport after the cruise. Emmanuel was the owner and was great to work with.
  10. We used VIP Express from a Galveston hotel to the port a couple of weeks ago. Emmanuel was our contact and he was great to work with. He will pick up from with Hobby or Bush airport.
  11. We stayed at the Drury Inn and Suites near the Hobby airport last month. They have a free "kickback" time in the evenings with food (tacos makings, hot dogs, chili, salad etc.) plus three adult beverages and a great free hot breakfast in the morning. The lobby has fresh popped popcorn and sodas all day long. Great place to stay before a cruise!
  12. I've sailed on the Elation twice-one prior to recent upgrades and once since the upgrades. Loved it both times. Not a real big ship, not full of fancy extras, but great service, good food, friendly staff. Had a wonderful cruise each time.
  13. Love the coves! Book them whenever we are on a ship that has them.
  14. We are going on our first Journeys cruise in January to the Panama Canal. I've read about 80's nights, White nights, etc. Do you get a letter or some info on these before you sail? I'd like to know so I can pack accordingly. Sounds like so much fun.
