As most have stated, we send cottons, t-shirts, shorts, jeans, and polos. We don't send delicates either. They may do a fine job with special instruction but we don't want to risk it.

We once boarded late due to mechanical problems but I think we boarded closer to 3:30-4:00. We were given a credit of $12.00 PP, which wasn't enough to cover a sit down lunch, but a nice gesture...

I agree no one should lie and risk getting hundreds more sick. I do think if the cruise line made it possible for them to reschedule without penalty if they were sick, (requiring medical documents...

Our last couple of cruises we had "casino cash" waiting for us when we checked in at the cage in the casino. They also had "drinks on us" cards waiting for us the first day. The previous cruise to...

Who really cares. If you are in the priority area, you could be #1 or #50. Does it really matter? Is there a benefit to being 100 yards ahead of someone else? Sounds silly to me.

Probably not, since dining times are usually established prior to boarding. Even last moment changes on board will depend on availability. Already assigned dining time would of course not be...

Agreed! FTTF means I get a couple of perks I didn't before. Room ready and early luggage.

We not only would, but have, and have a B2B booked on her again in September. We loved that cruise!

It's so silly the perception of some due to the sensationalism of the news and other media. ...

If we were in the position that we needed it, we would purchase FTTF. Years ago, they had a program we bought into before we achieved platinum to enable us to go to the VIP lounge and also offered...

I live in Sunny Arizona so the weather isn't really an issue. What gets us stirring is the offers I receive for a 45% reduced price from the Carnival Players club. It isn't really all that so to...

I just happened to click on this link and just couldn't stop reading until I read all posts!

I am really sorry that the OP missed his cruise with his family but I am sure life's lessons will...

-Carnival passengers are everyday people, not smug and pretentious as you find on other cruise lines. it doesn't matter where we are today, hubby and I began life in blue collar America, and we...

We have been on the Legend 6 times and the Dream 2. We much prefer the Legend. It seems much less crowded and the crew seems to be "friendlier." Not that the crew on the Dream wasn't friendly, just...

It would seem to me that if the toilet paper holder was in a position that was hard to maneuver and was sharp enough to cut deep enough to need stitches, that would have been a safety hazard and a...

Though we seldom receive one, that is refreshing to hear, but to be honest, Carnival knows by now probably that I will let them know one way or another that I enjoyed my cruise or if I had issues via...

If you have become accustomed to a balcony, it might be difficult to enjoy your cruise without one. I know over the past three years we spend even more time on the balcony because we want to enjoy...

We sailed the Triumph in Sept. and loved her. We just didn't like the shorter cruise. We will sail her again if we can take a B2B but no more 5 day cruises for us.

Drinks are not free. The pit boss does have somewhat of a budget though and could choose to buy you one from time to time if you have been playing awhile.

I am assuming this is your first...

Sure you can. We do it all the time. Sure we prefer a suite, but a extended balcony will do just fine if the price isn't right.

We feel if you really want to enjoy a suite on Carnival, you have to get the Grand suite. The OS just don't offer that much more for the price. The Grand suite has a much better space and room.

So glad to hear you had a wonderful cruise.

The Legend is our favorite ship (we have sailed her 5 times already) and we have a cruise booked in April. Our biggest concern was that she might have...

I am so glad to see some of you getting a break. I got an offer (that I had to look for in my VIFP location, no letter) for a good deal on a interior room. Obviously they don't do their research. ...

As a Long time Carnival cruiser I have to say that the new menus are exciting to us. We don't cruise for food, but do appreciate quality of food. Over the past few years have noticed, like most long...

If they could somehow incorporate their loyalty programs they could avoid the risk of the switch in brands. After the Triumph situation I was pretty much forced to take RCL because my vacation time...

If there were deceased to debark, I can understand why they would want to get back early.

There isn't a whole lot of time between turnarounds, You have cruisers debarking at the same time cruisers...
