Sounds like a very neat experience that would be good for our family ranging from 6-63. Couple questions if you don't mind: is ferry terminal within walking distance from cruise port? Do you recall...

I will be on this sailing and we are a group of about 40 coming from DFW (we're the crazy dog group, promise you'll know us by the end of the week lol.)

Most of our group is flying into Ft....

I would just find a nearby lot with a shuttle. Park the Uhaul in the lot, and then every person is responsible for getting their own luggage onto the shuttle and then onto the ship. Then as they get...

The advantage to prepaying is so my entire vacation is paid in full before I ever set foot on the ship. No surprises at the end and no more money to pay. Of course, I have to monitor my spending on...

Thanks for the reply! Would you choose one over the other if given the choice? Price and other factors appear to be equal.
Is "Star fish snorkel" the same as "Barrier reef?"
Sorry if this has been posted, I could not locate a search feature on this board.

Looking at tours for our stop in Cayman. Have always done Captain Marvin's and was wanting to book them again (if...

Question on the "next cruise" certificates - on Carnival you would put $100 down to reserve, then when it came to booking you would get $100 off the price PLUS the $100 on board credit, thus...

It may not be foolproof, but I thought generally if your cabin is forward of midship, you get the forward dining room, and if your cabin is aft, you get the aft dining room.

I work in a field where I have someone covering for me while I am out, but the flipside is that when that person is out, I cover for her. Which pretty much means whenever she is out, I work two...

I think that since this is a summer cruise, it can be done. Other families will bring their children so she'll likely make some friends. Maybe take a peek at the roll call and see if anyone else has...

It's not that your way is a "hassle," they just have a way they do it because it's more convenient that way. Many people who say they'll tip in cash are really going to stiff on tips, and there are...

You could also create a little door sign and have everyone put it on their doors to show you're all in the same group.

Order something from the formalities shop. I have heard good things about the...

I would suggest the standard Jamaica/Cayman/Cozumel itinerary that leaves from Galveston. Magic is a new ship, and if they wind up not liking it, they probably won't like many of the older (non 2.0)...

My experience with disposables is that our honeymoon "swimming with dolphins" photos suck because of some fog that got in the camera, right in front of the lens :(

Yes, but only because we cruise in a large group of friends. Even then, we know where the other one is and when we'll be meeting up again. It's usually the girls at an activity, the guys running up...

I would suggest the following:

1. Invest in real walkie talkies.
2. Use the phone in your stateroom to leave each other messages about where you'll be and when.
3.Write each other notes and...
Wait, wait, wait.... now you're saying you've had...
Wait, wait, wait.... now you're saying you've had FOUR bad cruises? Well, no wonder you're done with Carnival!



Oh ok, the first three were good after all...

They could just as easily do this by their inventory numbers (which they keep impeccable records of.) Number of sodas used at the end of the week divided by the number of people who bought the soda...

You probably shouldn't read review threads at all then, if you seriously just think "that's nice, who cares?" to all of them. Why do people write reviews at all? Because they want others to share in...

Yeah, except I don't buy that even within a fleet, everything is exactly the same. The offering itself, yes, but the preparation and the outcome, no.

I also doubt he would be guaranteed hair on...

So if the others were fine, and it's only this particular one that was disappointing, is it fair the OP is deciding to give up the entire line? Why is option 3 not try a different ship in the fleet?...

My favorite excursion, and one we do EVERY time we are in GC (through Captain Marvin, but that's another thread lol.)

To clarify, it's on a shallow sandbar, so "swimming" with them is a misnomer....

Don't think anyone was flaming you specifically. You asked and were told yes, you can remove them, but know that those same people will also be waiting on you in other areas of the ship. And even...

Captain Marvin's half day in Cayman. Have never done anything else while in GC, will continue to do this in the future

Chankanaab is great in Cozumel if you want to do dolphins/sea lions/manatees....

Prime rib
BBQ ribs
Cheese plate (blue cheese... drool...)
