We had an 8A on our recent Fantasy cruise and we loved it. On our cruise before that we had a balcony but rarely used it. Our girls LOVED the big portholes to sit in. We'd definitely do another 8A. ...

We have two girls - 4 and 2.5 - and I just can't see spending this much for both to attend. YIKES! We could even afford it but I guess I have a "cheap" gene that won't even let me consider it. ...

Looking through old navigators I've seen the Disney Junior dance parties listed. I think my 2.5 year old will like something like that.

We've also said no more short cruises on CCL. We took a 5 day last fall and even though we didn't have the exact issues the OP did, we saw enough to make us want to avoid anything under 7 days. Of...

Oh and our travel agent requested a high chair when we booked and it was at our table the first night.

We were given a crib not a pack and play on the Fascination last fall as well. It was smaller than a normal crib, like half the length/width, higher than a pack and play, and had linens.

You are such a breath of fresh air! I often feel like Disney fans can't admit they Iike any other cruise lines, or say anything remotely positive. Our next cruise is on the Disney Fantasy so I've...

We cruised last fall with our almost 3 year old and our 17 month old. The room steward put the mattress for one of the bunks on the floor at the foot of the big bed. Sure, there wasn't any room to...

On our last cruise my step-father came with us. He is in a wheelchair and has only one leg. In Nassau, we didn't do an excursion but I can tell you that he was able to use his motor scooter on the...

On our last cruise our DDs were almost 3 and 1.5. We used a crib for the 1.5 year old and our room steward put the upper bunk mattress on the floor at the foot of our bed for the almost 3 year old....
Bermuda - Grandeur of the Seas
Are the kids services open while in port in Bermuda? And is the babysitting service - in cabin or group setting - available while in port?

Thanks!

I'd rather take the stairs but on our last cruise with our two daughters (2.5 and 1) we had to use the elevators a lot (thanks to the stroller and tired little legs). I didn't think the wait times...

Definitely depends on your zone. On our recent Fascination cruise we docked late due to fog and things were pretty confusing for everyone. They called self-assist forever then suddenly Carnival staff...

We were able to fit our two large suitcases, one carry on suitcase plus our umbrella stroller under our bed and there was still room for more.

Oh my goodness. This thread just makes me so sad. My dad was handicapped (one leg) and my step-father is also handicapped and in a motorized chair. I would be incensed if I overheard anyone make...

Yes, airplane mode prevents incoming texts etc. I used airplane mode on my phone on our recent cruise and it was super convenient.

We've only done early traditional but were planning to do anytime dining on our next cruise since it seems like it will be easier with kids.

I will say that if you want to take the Carnival shuttle to the airport you shouldn't waste time. By the time we got off the ship almost two weeks ago (the Fascination) and got our luggage and...

We were on the Fascination 2 weeks ago and agree, no more short cruises, only 7+ days. We had a good time but it wasn't great. There were always lines at the grill on our cruise too, I found this...

Considering the Fun Times usually states "cruise casual" as the MDR dress code for the evening, dressing up isn't required.

I agree the water on board is fine (and I'm picky about water!). We did buy a big bottle when we got off the ship.

I saw flip flops in the MDR and all other areas of the ship on our recent cruise. Heck, I even wore a pair myself (Reef brand) with jean capris one night. Oh the horror! *gasp*

Lol.

I can answer one question, specifically #7: just got off the Fascination on the 4th, was traveling with some family, including my handicapped step-father. He was always helped by a Carnival employee...

I loved the WCMC on our first cruise but was disappointed on our second. It was a runny, soupy mess.

My favorite meals were the chateaubriand and the Mahi Mahi - both great. Also loved the crab...
