  1. Thanks for the feedback everyone. It sounds like it was less a one-off experience and something that is at least somewhat prevalent. Good to know!
  2. I still got them made custom, but I got major attitude from the deli guy every single time. Even when there was nobody else in line. I did try the pre-made buffalo chicken wrap but it was so soggy from being premade it was inedible. The difference? Mustard and mayo seeping through the premade wrap. That's what I have an issue with, along with not being able to add the ingredients I desire, without getting attitude. It also wasn't just me, one day the lady in front of my ordered a gluten free reuben with sauerkraut on the side, it took 15 minutes and the sandwich still came out wrong.
  3. Hello recent Carnival cruisers! I'm just off the Miracle, and the Carnival Deli is my *favorite* place to eat, besides the steakhouse. I should say though the Deli really disappointed on my cruise last week. As in, I love a freshly made turkey wrap with tomatoes, onions, pickles, and mayo, which takes all of like 30 seconds to make, but I got major attitude every time I wanted something other than the "premade" turkey wrap. What have you all experienced on recent Carnival cruises? Are the premade wraps the way of the future? Or was my experience a one-off?
  4. I feel like on my last Carnival cruise (which was 3 years ago) I got a little grief, but I just went back the next day and finished applying them. This was after I tried applying them via the kiosks...which never worked.
  5. Get the balcony. It's still a vacation - why make it more stressful? Instead of getting Cheers, maybe think about getting bottomless bubbles - that way if you do mixed drinks (e.g. rum and coke, jack and coke) you can order them separately, only paying for the shot, and mix them yourself! Whatever you do - enjoy!
  6. Check shorter cruises, I know we're doing Bermuda on a 5 day on NCL in the fall.
  7. I went on an NCL cruise and one of the people in my party was gluten free. I would highly recommend NCL from that perspective - they did a great job working with her in terms of meal planning - in the MDR as well as with specialty dining.
  8. It's up - we booked the Encore for October 2020! It is leaving from NYC. Hope to see you onboard!

    Bermuda help

    Hi all! I need some help... We're planning a cruise to Bermuda. It's a sea day/bermuda overnight/sea day back. The thing is, I think 5 day cruises are too short in general, and even more so when I have to fly across the entire country to do so. BUT I like being on the water and moving. We could do a 6 day which is sea day/bermuda/bermuda/bermuda/sea day. Is there enough to do in Bermuda to stay occupied for 3 days? Or am I going to be sitting on my balcony, staring at the same scenery for 3 days? I have been looking for a B2B, a 4 day to add to the 5 day, and I'm not having much luck. Thanks!
  10. Hi all! My cruise buddy and I are looking at going on our 2nd NCL cruise next year. We're normally Carnival cruisers, but after our Med cruise we want to try out NCL again! However, our balcony room was TINY compared to Carnival's balcony rooms. In looking at our potential itineraries (NCL Gem to Bermuda), it looks like there are balcony rooms and mini-suites which are a bit bigger, but then a huge jump to penthouse rooms. Is there are "regular suite" type of room? We're not a family, it's just me and my friend, we just want a bit more room to stretch out. We couldn't use our couch at all in our balcony room on the last NCL cruise. Any suggestions/information are appreciated!
