  1. I booked early saver and didn’t complete the specific names for months. However, all names were added prior to final payment which is what 1 CSR said was required. That worked for me.
  2. Depending on how you use them and what cards you have, Chase offers fantastic value. Amex can too, especially international flights to Asia, but domestically Chase is better. If you use points strictly for Carnival, cash back cards would work well. If you go this route, you should be including your partner and getting multiple cards/sign up bonuses. I’m surprised WavyChicken hasn’t commented. She’s uses Barclay’s Reward Boost portal (via Carnival Card) to buy many items to increase her Carnival points. It works for her.
  3. It hasn't been 4 years but 3 years for us. My MIL died and my wife was adamant we do 1 last family cruise. Five of us as well, all daughters, 21, 19 and 17. We are also taking my mom. Doing NYE Panorama (her 4th cruise, I think) out of Long Beach. We used to do Disney, then Universal and Carnival (but more Carnival). We've always had a great time.
  4. Exactly. They want to stay away from mom and dad and end up terrorizing other adults. 😜 👿
  5. We had both a Cabana as well as an interior on our med cruise. Fortunately, the Cabanas weren't selling well so I paid a small increase for 1 Cabana (and kept 1 interior). I really liked the Cabana but I wouldn't pay the extra fee over the interior despite liking the Cabana. There was hardly anyone in the patio area and walkway, even other Cabana cruisers were typically absent. But I enjoy the Havana deck area that comes with the interior so the extra money for a Cabana would be saved for either excursions or a down payment on another cruise.
  6. What you list above is the main reason FB is taking on more Carnival info and we are losing it here.
  7. You marked the wine, you got what you wanted. Not all cruise lines are far all people. As you know, you’ll enjoy other cruise lines better and Carnival is too full as it is (my opinion), so its a win win.
  8. Less storage than other ships but otherwise, if you can do 4 in another regular interior, you can do the Havana. Just pack very light. I'd do that in a heartbeat. When I got tired of the other 3, I just head out to my very large balcony, pool and hot tubs.
  9. We showed up at 10 am as everything with was running on time. We waited in the holding pen for a while but got on earlier than planned.
  10. Be thankful I didn't share my toenail.
  11. Guest Services, if you're going to do it on the ship.
  12. I get dinged in and head right to guest services, it’s the first thing I do. Apply gift cards and/or room swap/get keys squared away on our room swaps. There’s never been much of a line that early. Many seem to be headed for food or walking around in a state of confusion.
