I am looking to bring my own pinot grigio on board because I hate the only one Carnival offers, Danzante. And believe it or not, the pinot grigio in the box is much more palatable than Danzante. :o
Has anyone tried this......
Some wines come in 1 quart boxes, which are quite small. Has anyone had success in bringing a couple of these boxes on board in their luggage? Thanx for any advice on this.:)

We were on a South Pacific sailing on the Millie and had the aft cabin. Balcony was 75% covered and it was huge. My only problem with it was we found we experienced much more motion while sailing,...

In January, we had the same long wait for our flight after a cruise. However, We found a service that will hold your luggage. They were at the US AIR terminal at Fll airport. They only charged $5...

Is it true that the "martini flights" are now $18? Also, will they be included in any of the packages?

I hate to disagree, but our experiences have been quite the opposite during the last couple of years. My husband only drinks bourbon on the rocks. He now has to order, and of course, pay for a...

You certainly said a mouthful!!! In fact, I really wonder where they get those mini cosmo martini glasses from!!!!! When they first brought my cosmo to me in that incredibly tiny martini glass, I...

Oh, Yeah!!! It's just too bad cruise lines now hardly put any liquor in them!!!!!! Who wants to pay high prices for drinks with no discernible booze in the glass????:eek:

It's also funny how this came about at the same time Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean went public and were now on the stock exchange. It's called Corporate Greed, which is why our country is in...

You think????? I seem to recall that prior to cruise lines raising drink prices and then pouring pathetic amounts of booze in them, practically NO ONE ever even considered smuggling booze on board. ...

You wrote "in case Carnival management reads this thread." I wouldn't be surprised if Carnival management STARTED this thread. What better way to find out all the tricks, old and new, being used...
Will you give your luggage unlocke???
Was wondering how many of you fellow cruisers will be giving your luggage to the pier porters unlocked as Carnival is now requesting we do. Personally, I don't feel comfortable doing that and would...

Unfortunately, Azamara has NEVER delivered what they have advertised on many levels. However, the powers-that-be keep trying to entice the public to see how good and improved they are now. Fool me...

I just puchased the TSA luggage straps with combination locks for my upcoming cruise. After you lock the combination in, the TSA can open the lock with a key. There is a keyhole on the side of the...
Note to Globaliser
Knowing how wise you are in all your advice on CC, I am happy to see that you concur with my assessment of the situation. Thank you for your valuable opinion. :)

My sincere thanx for everyone's kind responses. I certainly don't believe that any of these locks or methods will stop a thief nor do I ever put anything valuable in my luggage. I merely wish to do...
Note to Rugrats
Unfortunately, the locks are built into the actual hardside suitcase and can't be removed. I'm not familiar with your suggested strap ties that they use as handcuffs, but do thank you for your...
Note to Sargent Schultz
I wasn't aware they had such a product!!! Thank you oh so much for enlightening me. I truly appreciate your advice.:)
Tsa lock won't work on our luggage???
We were just given a couple of pieces of luggage that have only combination locks. As such, we cannot utilize the TSA locks we have always travelled with. What would you wise CCers suggest? Do we...

We are long-time cruisers of both HAL and X. In the past, we have always loved service, food, entertainment, etc. on both. But after sailing on the Oosterdam last year, we have kept away from HAL...

We also were on the Carnival Splendor 3 months ago, and the food was excellent. Much better than our South Pacific cruise on the Millie. In addition, the entertainment blew X out of the water. And...
