  1. We submitted ours last night and have not received one yet either.
  2. Ha! That’s my family in your photo of the “Hop On Hop Off” bus line ....this backside view of myself is encouraging me to get my butt to the gym 😂
  3. We just cruised over NYE and the HUB app worked great most of the time but I think it was “user error”. The app has to be running for messages to come through. I think my daughter is in the habit of closing all the apps in her phone regularly so messages weren’t getting to her until she opened up the app.
  4. Thanks! I didn’t see the option anywhere on the website (or maybe it’s user error). You’re right, that’s a little bottle. Carnival sells 750ml bottles of vodka and we just mix it with the lemonade they have on the lido. We will just pay as we go 🙂
  5. We will be cruising with Royal Caribbean for the first time in a few months and have five port days and 1Sea day. When we cruise with carnival, we sometimes purchase a bottle of liquor before we cruise and it’s in the state room when we arrive or we order through room service when on board. Does Royal Caribbean do the same thing? With so many port days and excursions that include drinks, it doesn’t make sense for us to purchase the liquor package. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
  6. We will be sailing on her in 84 days, so I’m really happy to read your review, even if it was almost a year ago. We’ve never sailed with RCL so I was a little skeptical about going on one of their smaller ships but your review gave me peace of mind. Our good friends are getting married in Barbados, so it should be a great time 🙂
  7. I don’t why I wrote that. Lol. I guess I didn’t understand what the assigned seating comment had to do with the original post about dress code. I’m not sure why we didn’t have assigned seating on the Breeze, but that’s nice that it was part of your experience. Ours was set up in the entryway of the galley next to the salad station. It was very hard to hear the chef describing the dishes and they kept apologizing that it had to be move to that location with the waitstaff constantly walking past us. We still had a great time though.
  8. We did not have assigned seats, but good for you I guess 🤷‍♀️
  9. You will be amazed how clean the galley is. I have a whole different level of respect for what they do back there.
  10. When we did the Chef’s Table a few years ago, we dressed nicely and I wore open toed sandals. Their rules may have changed since then and it may be because of the Health Department. Most, if not all, commercial kitchens require closed toed shoes. The other thing I wanted to say is that in our group, we had one gentleman that wore a t-shirt, short and tennis shoes as he had just won the chefs table dinner in the casino. He was maybe in his 50’s and was cruising with his mother. When we went to sit at the table, nearly everyone sat at the opposite end from him. I was sad that he was given such attitude by the others that were in our group so I sat across from him. He was incredibly kind and owns a company in NYC. He told us that he had been on more than 60 cruises with Carnival and about his favorite ports and excursions. It was fascinating to listen of their stories about all the transatlantic cruises. A goal of ours, for sure! So while this post was originally about shoes, I’m saying, don’t judge a book by its cover and make sure your shoes don’t have slick bottoms. 😉 You’ll love the dinner...enjoy!
  11. According to John Healds page, there is no issue with it's seaworthiness. So hopefully the repairs can be done at sea and in ports. Fingers crossed!!
  12. From John Heald's page on Facebook: "Carnival Glory had an allision with Carnival Legend this morning in Cozumel. Carnival Glory was maneuvering to dock when it made contact with Carnival Legend which was already alongside. We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship. We have advised guests from both ships to enjoy their day ashore in Cozumel. There is one reported minor injury of a Carnival Glory guest that occurred when a group of guests were evacuated from the dining room on Decks 3 and 4."
  13. Well *****! We are supposed to leave on her for New Years!
  14. Last year, they had a special dinner menu and had hats, crown and noise makers for every guest in the dining room. They had a balloon drop in the atrium at 11pm that had New Years wishes written in them by the guests, although I heard they weren’t doing it this year. At midnight, they have a huge deck party and passed out lots of free champagne, glow sticks, glasses and other free stuff. The count down was awesome with the horn going off. It was our favorite cruise so far and we are going again this year! Go on one if you can!
