We've done a 5 hour drive to Galveston multiple times. Had one time when traffic in Houston was stopped due to a wreck & ended up driving through town. It delayed our port arrival, but still made...

Try doing a search in the Cabin thread - it's posted at the top part of the Carnival board. If no one has posted info there, you can try googling the ship name & cabin & see what comes up.

My PVP told me that we could add the TBA person whenever we wanted, but to be aware that if the ship reaches capacity, you will no longer be able to add. So, even though there is a bed available in...

Magic & Breeze require a card for the lights - we use an old cruise card from another line. That way it can't be confused with the current card. We leave it in the slot the whole week anyway & just...

Not really - I like to socialize, but I also enjoy spending time alone with my spouse. Plenty of time outside of dinner to socialize. We've been seated at 2-tops as well as 4-tops when traveling...

We take one of those 99 cent travel corkscrews. It goes in checked luggage for airline, but we carry our luggage onto the ship. I found the little corkscrew difficult to use, so I may take a bigger...

We had headphones on Magic in May. Gave one set to our grandson. The other is still in the box in hubby's office.

Good info, shof! I had not even noticed excursions on the Hub app since we typically book in advance. I'll keep that in mind for the future.

We've brought pre-packaged cajun trail mix for a snack & protein bars for scuba trips, but never anything that wasn't packaged. No problems with either of those. Unless you just have cravings for a...

Pre-booked excursions have to be paid at the time of booking. Excursions booked on board are charged to your onboard account. So, your credit would be sitting there to go against anything charged...

Magic is now electronic - loved it. We ordered one photo & had it sent to my phone. I was then able to airdrop it to the couple we were traveling with and upload to my computer. If we need a...

We had a party of 6 on Magic and Freedom and always went around 5:45-6. The only night we waited more than a couple of minutes was 1 elegant night & it was 20-30 minutes. We grabbed a cocktail from...

Seems like with ATD, it is hit or miss as to whether you will be in the dining room when they dance. But yes, they do dance for ATD.

I like the bitter & blanc, but when I've had baked Alaska, it seemed it was nothing more than spumoni ice cream with some type of meringue shell. I just wasn't impressed and never got it again.

croooze, the reason we take a card of some sort for the lights is this: If I go to the room for just a few minutes, I don't want to have to take off my card (yes, it's usually on a lanyard) and...

We've only been waitlisted once, but when we boarded, we had been assigned to late dining. We just went to the maitre 'd after we dropped off our luggage. He was not able to get us into anytime...

I don't know if there is a spreadsheet, but the first post has the template for filling in information. If you're looking for info on a specific cabin, you'll have to do a search on the thread.

We almost booked a cruise on Sunshine but ended up going on another ship. The cabins we were thinking about booking were both balconies & had no mini fridge. I always use the goccl site to be sure...

When we were booking our future cruise, the PVP didn't know for sure when they would be released - he told us December or January. I sometimes think they get no more information than we do.

When we booked our 2019 cruise, it was either late December 2017 or early January 2018 before it was available to book. There were some cruises for that month that were available earlier than that,...

We usually only travel once yearly & have not had usb plugs in any of the hotel or ship lamps. I think it's a great idea, as I like to have my phone beside the bed so I can see the time when I wake...

For those asking about Magic, they still had the old lamps when we sailed in May. We had to bring a charging port from home.
