If you get the drink package, specialty coffees are included. If you don't, you will get a punch card with your first coffee. I think it's six coffees and the seventh is free.
Enjoy your cruise!

Right, booking last minute they offered us free drinks and two specialty dinners for $700 more, so we passed. But we did get a great price for the balcony room.
Diamond on Carnival tried NCL Escape
This, of course, is our opinion only. I wrote pros and cons. Spoiler alert...lol...
Carnival won, but there were many things we loved on NCL and for the right price, we would sail them again.

Thank you both! Got it!

Where do I notify Carnival of new phone #?
I can't find where to put a new phone number. We are cruising during hurricane season and thought it best to give Carnival a number in case we're en route and they need to contact us. Thanks in...

You are out of the main traffic. When you arrive, there are people everywhere directing the cars. There's only one entrance. You go through a seemingly crazy maze of traffic cones...lol...then some...

Platinum can board whenever. They make you pick a time, but priority boards first. We were on the Ecstasy last week. We got in the parking line at 10:50 and were in our room at 11:30. It went very...

The Sunshine is one of our favorite ships too. We are sailing on her again in a few months. The Havana area is so nice...behind the lido...extra seating and a large bar. There are two extra omelet...

I believe they were open daily, but short lunchtime hours...maybe 12-2 or so. Nice on the first day because it was practically empty up there. There's a drink station too with coffee, water, tea and...

We used butts up last month. We did not have to carry our tubes. They were wonderful and we had a great time...I'm over 60 and had no problems at all. I would recommend wearing a pair of old sneakers...

We got off the splendor a couple weeks ago. Enjoyed it immensely. I did miss having guy's burgers, but the barbecue place up above lido was really good. The pink decor didn't bother us...lol...the...
