If you do opt to bring a bottle Downy Wrinkle Release, be sure to put it in a zip lock bag. The first time we brought one (several years ago), I put it in my suitcase without putting it in a zip lock...

We cruised on the Vista this past April. Overall, I didn't much care for the way this ship is designed and laid out. I'll be quite honest, I wasn't particularly "wowed" by the Atrium. The design and...

Oh, yeah. "Galaxie". Well, that was my senior moment for the day.:o

We had a cove balcony on the Vista. #2396, Port side, sort of mid section. It's the last cove balcony before the Family Harbor section. We had no noise from above, but we did have some noisy...

I had a Ford Galaxy many many years ago. A lot of fond memories. The back seat was big enough to, er, umm, never mind.:o If Carnival was to name one of their future ships "Galaxy", I wonder if Ford...

While some ships already have this system in place, it hasn't gone fleet wide just yet. When you check in at the home port, your passport photo is scanned and linked to your S&S card. The primary...

If you're still following this thread, try calling Carnival Customer Service at 1-800-764-7419. Maybe someone there can give you the correct information.

I've read that you need to check to see if there are any restrictions at each of the ports you'll be visiting regarding drones. Some ports (not sure which ones) have banned their use. It will take a...

Personally, I like sea days, and try to choose an itinerary that has a good mix of ports and sea days. A port intensive cruise can be very exhausting, at least for us. Maybe those that complain about...

If you have ever looked up ANY recipe on line, baked goods, chili, meat loaf, etc., you've no doubt found numerous variations. The same would hold true for cocktail recipes. I wouldn't be afraid to...

"Decorating Your Stateroom Door and Stateroom

We recognize some of our guests like to decorate their staterooms and we, too, love seeing your...

Correct. I'm not sure why you'd want to put canned beverages in your checked luggage. Considering the way that bags get tossed around, why risk the possibility of a can (or two) getting ruptured and...

No. However, there's a well known trick that many of us have used that works pretty well. When taking a hot shower, hang the item you wish to steam (on a hanger) on the inside of the bathroom door...

I think on most ships, there are free lanyards in the casino. However, from what I've read, there are apparently a few ships that don't have them. Sorry, I don't remember which ones. If you're hoping...

Are you trying to choose a cruise based solely on the ship? What are the choices of itineraries with the ships listed? What time of the year are considering? Food is subjective. What one considers...

Using a debit card for S&S

Don't do it, unless you have absolutely no other option. If you do opt to use a debit card, make sure that all checks have cleared, as well as any other recent...

This pretty much sums my thoughts and opinions on the Vista. I didn't like the fact that the Aft pool was not "adults only". I, too, have no desire to sail on the Horizon. Bigger is NOT always...

We've been to the D.R. twice. First time was at La Romana, and last year at Amber Cove. Our daughter and one of our nieces went with us. Not my favorite island, and in no big hurry to go again....

Yes. We've cruised on the Liberty twice. It's my favorite ship. If the Conquest class had cove balconies, they'd be the perfect class (for me).

We've sailed on both the Breeze and the Vista. Given a choice, I'd prefer the Breeze. There were elements of the Vista I didn't care for. I didn't like the seating in the theater for the live shows....

Since the Horizon is a sister ship to the Vista, the layout should be nearly identical. While there are some cove balcony cabins located below the galley, there are some that are not. Studying the...

We've had a cove balcony twice. Once on the Breeze, and once on the Vista. We didn't experience any ocean spray either time. However, on those occasions when the crew washes down the sides of the...

First, it would be helpful that you put a title relating to your post in the subject line, rather than your avatar name. Have you talked to a travel agent in your area? She/he would be able to help...
