  1. They did not sell any transportation passes onboard when we were on in June.
  2. We cruised out of NYC in late March a couple of years ago. Embarkation day was freezing, the first sea day was too cold to go outside, by the 2nd sea day it was warm enough to be outside but not really to swim. That said, we're sailing on the Pride in 10 days and looking at the cold days as fun indoor activity time. I'll report back how the covered pool area/water is!
  3. Hmm.. I love the sun... But hopefully we can get some extra towels to cover the chairs or something!
  4. We're in aft 6264 in less than 2 weeks - I'll let you know!
  5. Sorry to bust in here... Anyone know what the situation is on the Pride? We board on the 20th and I'm wondering how aggressive we'll have to be to stake a claim on seats at the sports bar. How big is it?
  6. IMO the crappy thing is how they're doing it. After we booked and paid for our cruises (in July for us) they can't raise the rates. However, it's somehow ok to raise price or change just a lot that was in the original price of our cruise fare and extras. We prepayed gratuities, purchased social media package, Cheers, FTTF, and made reservations for the Chef's table. Some of these we got in before the price hikes/ changes and some we didn't. I don't care about room service but I do care that Carnival doesn't seem to be give a crap about honoring what people thought they were buying. Not grandfathering people in that have already booked and paid for their cruises - for MANY things, not just one or two is just shady. That is the reason that I will think twice before booking again.
  7. Take care of her - we board when you return! 😉
  8. Having sailed NCL the past two times, I'm really looking forward to Cheers on our upcoming Carnival cruise because there is a LOT more included. I am going to live it up on fancy coffee, bottled water, maybe even a milkshake or two!
  9. Thanks for another great live review Sid! I'm sorry that your reality is crappy right now but I'm pretty certain that there are bigger and brighter things out there for you. Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  10. Allstate insurance has 10% cards! Just ordered them to pay for our cruise & cheers. It adds up - saved $270. Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  11. I try to prepay as much as possible. Drink package, gratuities, any excursions, specialty dinners, celebration packages, etc. We usually get on board credit of some sort that we use for any pictures or gift shop spending and bring $500 cash for tips and port spending. That way there's very little question as to budget. Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  12. Do they run out often? (Allstate) How long do they take to arrive once you order? Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  13. It would be awesome if they let you get unopened beers! Has anyone else done that? Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  14. Thank you for the advice, I will definitely do that. Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
  15. We're going on our first CCL cruise in 15 years and I have to admit that this is a bit of a turn off. We are very neat but love the twice a day service. I will feel uncomfortable asking for it because I don't want to be a bother. Sent from my SM-N900V using Forums mobile app
