  1. Disney is a great line and I think it is worth the extra money and when we can afford it, we'll do it again. With that said, there has been nothing wrong with Carnival (can't wait to get on another one of their ships)! We enjoy it almost as much Disney! With Disney, we were not able to do all the activities we wanted to do because there was so much to do, until 11 pm, that is. Carnival had the better nightlife. Regardless of what you choose, remember, the best cruise is the one that you are currently on!
  2. We're thinking about those above us and hope they have listened to their State Emergency people. Forecasters said we would not get too much where we live in NC (about 70 miles from the coast), but it has been windy and rainy enough for over 24 hours to cause some power outages and some branches (and trees in some are areas) to come down. Please take this seriously if you are in the path of Irene, as there have been 5 people who have already died.
  3. Thanks for all the info! That's why we love you guys!!!
  4. It has been a while since we have been to Cozumel and Grand Cayman and we cannot remember if we need to take a cab at either port or if the ship docks near the shopping areas. If anyone has been recently please let us know. Thanks.
  5. I was in Charleston a few years ago for a US Women's soccer game and love the city! It really is a nice place!
  6. Maybe Wilmington, NC will try for Carnival if they have to leave SC.
  7. On my wife and I first cruise (our honeymoon), we we're seated at tablemates with a newlywed couple who complained about everything! This was after they informed us that they found out about the cruise a day before because it was a gift from their parents! My wife and I had to save for about a year to take it! Everywhere we would see them, they we're constantly complaining about the food at dinner, the weather, the crew and just about everything under the blue sky! While we have run in to other complainers since then, that couple is the one that sticks out in our mind the most!
  8. Bernard's Tours is the way to go (we've used them twice). It's the only way to go, IMO! Have fun what ever you chose!
  9. In the summer, we have booked a few days before a ship leaves and have not paid very much at all. We really don't care where the cabin is or it's category (or most of the time, where the ship is going), as we just use it to sleep and shower. I guess we'll ask someone on board our next cruise how they got a last minute call, if we run in to anyone else. (Hope this make sense, as I am starting to get a migraine)
  10. My wife and I are getting ready for our Summer Break and have often wondered how some people get calls from the cruiselines for last minute cruises (i.e., get a call on a Tuesday/Wednesday, on board on Friday). Any answers would be great!
  11. We board our cat and rabbit at our vet ($10 for cat/ $9 for rabbit (they say she's a pocket pet)). The cat knows when we our getting ready to cruise, as she hides the moment she sees the suitcase!
  12. Go with the Buffet! It has everything you would get with the plate. Come to think of it, since I have been here the past 6 years, I can think of no one who has ever just bought a plate! Enjoy!
  13. On WMBFTV.com, have changed the story from last night and now state that everything appears to be OK (Charleston-based cruise ship appears free of virus-http://www.wmbfnews.com/Global/story.asp?S=12194391). I'm sorry for any confusion caused, I was only stating what the News here had said.
