  1. Honestly, I don't know. I've never seen them put a match to anyone's door and check, nor have I tried that, lol. I don't mean to sound flippant, I promise -- I just honestly have no idea. I don't go out of my way to find specifically "fire retardant" decor, but I also am not decorating the door with kindling and crepe paper. I just make sure that I'm only using Command hooks and hanging strips so as to not damage any of the surfaces.
  2. Totally agree. However, the cakes they have on the lunch buffet are amazing... I wish they offered those there or anywhere at dinner as well!
  3. You're fine with that combo -- see the excerpt from the Carnival protocols that @Elaine5715 posted above in post #3.
  4. I'm not sure why you quoted me... But yes, that is why I said that the OP could not cruise. 🤷‍♀️
  5. Unfortunately, unless you are under the age of 12, you cannot apply for an exemption.
  6. I thought Circle C was open, since 12 and older have to be vaccinated anyway? So your son would still be able to do fun stuff with them. Or did you mean he likes some of the activities the younger set usually does? (Wouldn't blame him, so would I! 🙂 )
  7. I ordered a 2-pack from Optum on 9/9, and got an email overnight that the order has shipped with estimated delivery by this evening (!). We'll see! 🙂
  8. Well of all the nerve, lol... According to some people here, she only spoke to you because she would be flogged and keelhauled if she didn't. Probably faced a firing squad for holding the door open for you. 🙄
  9. If they had been actively working on our room, we would not have bothered them at all and would have simply turned and left and come back later. But our steward was down the hall, and we just asked him if it was alright to stow our things right quick. No one was put out by our request, we didn't hamper anyone's ability to prepare anyone's stateroom, and we were literally there for less than a minute.
  10. Was on Breeze 7/29 and was able to drop off rolling carry-on and CPAP with no problem. They were still working on rooms, but we just asked very nicely and they said sure very nicely, and just asked that we put the items in the closet which we were happy to do. Took us 10 seconds and we were out of their way.
  11. My son and I love that train -- it always means we're almost at WDW. 🥰
  12. Hi Marsha, If you go into your booking and then click on "Booking & Order Detail", scroll down and you'll see the "your cruise companions" section. Just add your folks there, and you should have no problem booking dinners or anything else with all of you together. 🙂
  13. I brought an entire pack of straws (good old fashioned neon-colored plastic ones) with me on our Breeze cruise last week, and people around me were mighty jealous, lol. I happily handed plenty of them out. Those "edible" straws are awful, and just weird with most drinks. The only ones I didn't mind were the chocolate ones for milkshakes -- those were at least more "appropriate". But a lime-flavored straw with a Malibu Colada is just.. ick. And all of them dissolving in your mouth after a few minutes is just 🤮. The no-coffee-stirrers thing is way more confusing to me, though... Now instead of those, they have ceramic jars with tons and tons of regular spoons in them, and separate jars labeled "soiled." How is it more environmentally friendly to be using all that water, detergent, manpower, etc. to wash SO many spoons so often??
  14. And I just now got a sales email from Carnival... "It's finally time to get back to fun with your friends and family. And the best way to do that is on a vaccinated Carnival cruise. Limited availability for vaccinated guests on sailings through October 31, 2021." They should have fine print below that that says, "...except you'll be treated exactly as if you were unvaccinated..."
  15. I have typed and deleted so many things I know I can't utter on here for this reply... Suffice it to say, I am not happy. I *AM* happy -- extremely happy -- that we just got off Breeze on Monday after a wonderful, NORMAL cruise. It felt beyond good to rip those masks off our faces the moment we stepped onboard, and keep them off until it was time to disembark. As I've been saying for a long time, Carnival should have been sailing at 100% vaccinated -- there was zero need for them to pander to those with kids under 12 or anyone else. They could have easily filled the ships with vaccinated people until such time when it is much SAFER for those with kids to cruise. If the ship was 100% vaccinated, crew, guests, and everyone, none of this would be happening. Can we still get and transmit covid as vaccinated people? Of course, we all know that we can -- but who cares? It might show up as the sniffles at worst, but we know with near-certainty that we're not going to get seriously ill or anything even approaching that. The science has shown that. Now I have to figure out what to do about our October cruise, because there's no way we're cruising with masks required everywhere.. but like so many others, this cruise was a *great* deal that we're very likely not going to be able to replicate, and we've already made final payment. Thanks for screwing everything up for everyone, unvaxxed people. 🤬
  16. I guess I'm the only weirdo who really doesn't like Alchemy at all, lol... I love frozen, fruity, tropical drinks and am just not big on cocktails. There's just not one thing on their menu that I've ever wanted to try, and several that I wouldn't try even on a dare. 🙃 But that just means one more seat available for you Alchemy fans!
  17. This is the official Carnival recipe for it: 1/2 SHOT IRISH CREAM 1/3 SHOT BUTTERSCOTCH SCHNAPPS 1/4 SHOT KAHLUA 1/2 SHOT GOSLINGS BLACK SEAL 3 SQUIRTS GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE SYRUP 2.5 OZ ICE CREAM MIX Just behold this gloriousness...
  18. Took the words right out of my mouth! RFP's Caribbean Colada is my very favorite drink onboard... It's like a Pina Colada with banana added. My husband and I both ask for Malibu instead of Bacardi, and then it's extra coconutty and AMAZING. 😍 You might also like the Mocha Chocolate Getaway.. Bailey's, Kahlua, chocolate, Butterscotch Schnapps, what's not to love?? 😊
  19. I love decorating our door!! Always do. I make different signs for each cruise, I have different cut-outs and whatnot, I have banners special-made. It's just fun and festive and makes it a whole lot easier to spot your cabin door out of the 1,947,216 other identical doors down those looooong hallways, lol. Plus, it's very much a Disney thing to decorate not the door but your whole big picture window of your room, so it's a happy habit for me. 🙂 But do keep in mind that Carnival has laid out very strict rules for decorating -- definitely NO tape of any kind, only Command hooks or magnets. They have it all laid out here: https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3256/~/decorating-your-stateroom-door-and-stateroom Happy decorating! 😊
  20. I'm not sure why this is still being believed, but it is only Florida where proof of vaccination cannot be required to cruise. Here in Texas, that mandate only applies to state entities (such as the state university where I work at) and businesses that receive state funding/grants. The cruise lines are free to - as Carnival currently does - require proof of vaccination. They are sailing with 95% vaccinated guests, and <5% exemptions for children under 12 and lots of extra fees and restrictions for them.
  21. A couple of people on our 7/29 sailing just heard back yesterday.
  22. I haven't notified them for this cruise next week, but I wonder if it just stays on your record. I usually notify them for week-long cruises, because I request a heavy-duty extension cord and ask them to please tape it down so it's safer for clumsy me and for our stateroom host. This is a short cruise though, so I didn't bother this time. I just wonder if the CPAP notation is "sticky."
  23. I didn't even think about that... That recall covers 3-4 *million* machines being used by people, and statistically there's probably a few of them set to cruise soon. I'm one of them, on both counts. There's no way I can not use mine and no way to replace it with the backlog, but if I didn't bring it because of the recall the last thing I would think about would be letting Carnival know that I wasn't bringing it.
  24. If you go to insuremytrip.com you can choose to view plans that provide Covid coverage from lots of different companies, and find what's best for your situation. That's where I've gone for years for our travel insurance.
  25. It really is nuts, and all the construction has made it SO much worse. I should post on the port board every time 45S is closed down because of some huge accident, but I don't have time to post that often! Just last week the northbound side was closed for a long time because of some rollover accident, and once I couldn't even get off the island until close to 9pm (I get off work at 4:30) because the causeway was completely closed. I have anxiety attacks by proxy every time someone posts that they're flying in day-of their cruise, lol. We only live less than 30 miles away, and it makes *us* nervous driving in the morning of a cruise!! We get up stupid early and keep a sharp eye on Wayz that morning. And side note to your side note -- You might want to look into Lyft instead, as they're the only ones authorized now to be at the cruise terminal. 🙂
