  1. Spending a few days in Charleston before cruising. I'm trying to figure out if there are tours that take you directly to Fort Sumter instead of just passing by it by a boat tour. Thanks.
  2. We were also on this cruise. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it! Personally, I had a great time! It was my first time on Anthem but not my first time cruising. Now, I'm following in your footsteps....going to fold the second batch of laundry!
  3. We also got off on the 18th. We had a blast! Simon was wonderful and the rest of the staff was attentive and pleasant to deal with. I actually appreciated the decor except in the room area. Loved the spaciousness of the room and the closet space, but the bathroom and balcony definitely need to be redone. While I was ok with the pool area in the back of the ship, I also thought the pool itself needed some updating. This was our first Carnival cruise and although I was skeptical based on the reviews I was glad I went. I will definitely look into other Carnival cruises based on my experience here.
  4. We just got back from NOLA....Had dinner at the following places....Vacherie and Dickie Brennans. It was during Coolinary Week so the prices were a little more reasonable. The food was absolutely delicious in both places. We had Sunday brunch at Court of Two Sisters. It was a jazz brunch and the food was very good. I tried turtle soup and it was so good that I had seconds! I hope you enjoy your stay!
  5. I am not as concerned about the eating as much as I am about the tours. The tours look very similar except for the eating. I was really wondering if anyone had experience with both tours and if there was a difference other than the food.
  6. We will be on the Anthem's 11/3 sailing out of Cape Liberty. Thinking about doing the Boston/Lexington-Concord 7 1/2 hour tour. I noticed that there are 2 different tours...one stops at the Oyster House for lunch (included in excursion fee) while the other has a stop at Quincy Market for lunch on your own. The difference in price is substantial and I was looking for some feedback on this. Thanks in advance. Shelly
  7. Has anyone used Advance Check In to transport your luggage from the hotel to cruise terminal so that you could do some sightseeing? We will be spending 4 days in NOLA prior to boarding the Triumph. We were thinking about going to Mardi Gras World before boarding the ship but weren't sure what to do with our luggage. Saw this company and was looking for feedback if anyone has any. TIA.
  8. Looking into some things to do while in NOLA in August and came across the hands on cooking experience. It seems that it has gotten great reviews on Trip Advisor, but was wondering if anyone has had their own personal experience with this. Thanks.
