Valor has an aft adult pool - I believe Dream does not. I haven't been on that particular ship, but others in her class do not. What I like about the Dream class ships is the outdoor area on deck 5...

We've not had any issues in the dining room - still the same waitstaff setup. Our favorite has been John Alex & his team on Freedom in the YTD room. We requested them every night. He's a great guy...

We were waitlisted for YTD once and when we got to port, found they had put us in late dining. We went to the maitre d when his station opened and asked if there was anything else. We still...

We are the same way - always turn out the lights before leaving the cabin. The reason we leave a spare card in the slot is so we don't have to take our s&s card from around our neck if it's on the...

Not all balconies can be opened to each other. If the balcony divider would cover the door, they will not open it. Once they are opened, they are latched in place, so your steward would have to...

Some use magnetic strips, some have a keypad. I take an old princess or royal caribbean card to use for the safe and/or light switch. The light switch needing some sort of card is another thing...

Every time I've sailed on this class of ship, it's been outside. Kind of miserable when it's hot outside.

No problem mixing & matching & I wouldn't worry about taping up the cardboard carton too tightly - our neighbors had their carton opened and had to put it in a tote bag to carry the cans on board. ...

If you have the Carnival credit card, they will automatically credit 10% back for your excursions booked through the website. Plus you get double points on any Carnival expenditures - the booking,...

I always do this to check to be sure it will seal. No strap, just put on my face and inhale through nose. If it stays, I have a seal. I get them to seal ok, but still have problems once I am in the...

michiele, be sure you are not price matching to a guarantee price where they select the cabin. I usually do a mock booking for the same deck to check pricing. If it pops up saying cabin will be...

Pyrate, yes, that was exactly why I used the term supposedly - I see the bin, but have no way of knowing what is in it.

As far as the full mask snorkels, I have seen people using those & have...

I think my hubby & his buddy went with Oasis Divers in Grand Turk. They are housed at Jack's Shack. They had booked the trip through the ship, but stayed on the dive boat to be dropped off with us...

We've used the gnome to book cruises on a couple of occasions, as they were offering onboard credit that Carnival was not. My preference, though, is to book directly through Carnival so I have...

I've seen them before as well - seems it was only a basic snorkel. Not sure if they still sell them or not. I use the excursion provider's equipment when snorkeling and diving. They're supposedly...

It's always been my understanding as well that steamers are not allowed. We've used the ironing board in the self service laundrette before. If you're concerned about ironing a delicate item, you...

Cayman is a tender port - I wonder if the tenders don't start running until 8? I wouldn't worry about it since your excursion doesn't start until well after that, though.

Actually, I have. In 2015, 3 cabins booked inside at $280pp 7 nights on Magic. Couple #1 got a call to upgrade to a balcony for a little bit of extra money. It was a really good deal, so I called...

If the credit card doesn't offer automatic travel insurance, then it's worth a try to call & try to rebook for a later date. There could be change fees, but still better than losing everything paid....

I would go with cash. A note of appreciation would be nice as well as a note to management.

You might try asking a different Carnival rep. There are certain offers that are good for up to so many cabins. Our PVP was telling us about a rate on one of our cruises that could be applied to...

And you get to use the priority line at guest services.

Here is some additional info on the trolley.

This was our experience. We waited in the priority lounge - our 4 friends were in the FTTF area. We went ahead & checked in, but stepped aside at the Welcome Aboard photo spot so we could all take...

I always submit the price protection form. It may only be $10, but it could be another $10 next week, month - if there is a concern that I may lose OBC, then certainly I would call my PVP to be sure.
