  1. Why didn't you take the FCC on your Sunshine trip and then have 600 in OBC for your Horizon cruise next year?
  2. So far during this virus, we've rescheduled a April Conquest sailing to September which we now doubt will take place, taking the refund on our July Sunshine trip and booked a Horizon cruise for September 2021. We're all over the map on this right now.
  3. I have grilled cheese sandwiches with American cheese all the time. Love 'em. The grilled cheese I had from the deli on the Horizon in March was....well, I don't know what it was, other than it was terrible.
  4. Carnival Cruises plans to restart cruises from Galveston, Texas, and Miami and Orlando in Florida, on Aug. 1, an announcement released Monday said. All other sailings in North America will be suspended through Aug. 31. Eight of Carnival’s ships plan to return to the sea in August: Dream, Freedom, Vista, Horizon, Magic, Sensation, Breeze and Elation. The first sailings will visit the eastern and western Caribbean as well as the Bahamas. Four-day cruises from Miami to Key West, Fla., and Cozumel, Mexico, start at $139 per person on Aug. 6 and 20. Four-day cruises from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas and Princess Cays starts at $149 per person on Aug. 13 and 27. https://www.latimes.com/travel/story/2020-05-05/carnival-plans-to-restart-cruises-from-u-s-ports-in-august
  5. Hi all, just rebooked 2 balcony cabins on deck 7 on the Horizon.7286 and 7288. Those were the only 2 cabins next to each other. They are adjacent to the IMAX theater. Should I be worried about hearing noise from the movies while in our cabin, especially at night? I called and tried to have them moved but was told nothing else is available. Anyone have experience with rooms outside the IMAX theater? Any help,is appreciated.
  6. I thought I read a similar article but having that said, I just booked August 2nd on the Horizon and I have a balcony and inside cabin. It was a re-book from my June 27th Panorama cancellation. If you have a PVP call them and see if they can extend your final payment. Mine is being pushed off until mid to late June.
  7. I thought I read a article that said on the beginning cruises they would not have anyone in inside cabins. Does anyone else recall this? We have 2 insides on the Horizon on aug 22 and final payment is quickly coming up.
  8. Announcement made this morning says that all Carnival cruises have been canceled until Aug 1st. Then only 8 ships will be sailing. https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/update-carnival-cruise-line-service-pause-extension Aug 1st: Galveston: Carnival Dream, Freedom and Vista Miami: Carnival Horizon, Magic and Sensation Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Elation Not the news that we wanted to hear! I have a feeling that there will be more cancellations in the future.

  10. Wanted to say thank you to the OP for posting this as I still have not received my official cancellation email from Carnival for my June 27th sailing on the Panorama. Having that said because I saw this I already placed a hold on a 6 day sailing on the Horizon out of Miami. Now I have not read the entire thread other than about the first 10 posts, but what my PVP told me that they will be sailing the ship at 50 percent capacity so they are only doing holds for less than 24 hours. I needed this so I can check my work schedule. We'll be getting $600.00 OBC for our two cabins as well so that $1200 should pay for grats and our drinks. Take care everyone.
  11. Dear Carnival Cruise Line Guest: During this pause in our business, we have continued to assess the environment to determine whether our plan to resume operations beginning on June 27 is feasible. While we are beginning to see positive signs that the country is returning to some level of normalcy, the point at which we can begin sailing is uncertain and we are making plans for a phase-in of service later this summer. We are taking a measured approach, ensuring we are well prepared to support all public health and regulatory requirements prior to resuming service. We are focusing our return to service on a select number of homeports where we have more significant operations and that are easily accessible by car for many of our guests. Starting up with limited operations will also allow us to focus our resources on implementing new operational protocols prior to a broader roll-out across the fleet as travel and commerce continue to recover. Given this protracted delay, we unfortunately have to cancel your scheduled cruise. The key elements of this announcement: All cruises from June 27 to July 31 will be canceled Beginning August 1, we plan to resume cruises on the following ships: Galveston: Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista Miami: Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation Other than the above referenced service from Galveston, Miami, and Port Canaveral, all other North American homeport cruises will be canceled through August 31 All Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises from Seattle will be canceled, as well as the Carnival Spirit Vancouver- Honolulu cruise on September 25 and the Honolulu-Brisbane cruise on October 6 All Carnival Splendor cruises in Australia from June 19 to August 31 will be canceled We remain strongly committed to being a partner with government officials at the federal level and with officials in the local communities where we homeport our ships. We are also working with the destinations we visit to ensure their readiness and support. We will take all necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we bring our ships to in order to maintain public confidence in our business. We will use this extended pause to continue to identify and implement additional protocols so that we can safely welcome our guests back on board. Nevertheless, we apologize for disrupting your vacation plans and appreciate your patience as we work through these decisions. As we have offered previously, we are providing two options for you, including a bonus value incentive package that has proven very popular with our guests. We hope you will be able to rebook your vacation utilizing the incentives we have developed in recognition of your loyalty. We have fully automated your ability to respond with your choice online, avoiding the need to call us. We urge you to carefully review this information and follow the online process. Like many other companies, our offices remain closed at the direction of local government. While our customer contact center team is now working from home and taking calls, technology limitations continue to impact productivity and our level of support. This announcement is also likely to continue the extremely high call volumes that limit our traditional levels of resources and responsiveness. Calling us will not expedite your request at this time. In addition, if you booked through a travel advisor, they are fully equipped to help you with this process and will also be able to rebook another vacation with your future cruise credit. This letter supersedes any previous offer received. Carnival will honor this offer for any guests who were previously booked on these voyages and canceled their booking on or after March 6, 2020. Please make your selection using our online tool here – there is no need to call. Please note that whichever option you select will apply to all guests on your reservation. Given how fluid the situation is, we have extended this offer until December 31, 2020 for you to make a selection. After that, you will automatically receive a Future Cruise Credit*. Regardless of the option you choose, your taxes, fees and port expenses, Carnival Vacation Protection, pre-paid gratuities, pre-purchased Carnival shore excursions, beverage and Wi-Fi packages, and Fun Shop purchases will be automatically refunded to the original form of payment. If you purchased your own flights for getting to your cruise, we encourage you to contact your airline or travel agent about your options as the airlines are also working to accommodate their passengers. Please continue to visit the link below to learn more about how we are addressing COVID-19 and get further updates on our operations. Again, we apologize for this inconvenience because we know how much time and effort you put into planning the perfect cruise vacation. We want to get back to cruising just as soon as we can and we’ll be here when times are better and be ready for your return. Please continue to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Your health and safety are important to us whether or not you’re on one of our ships. Thank you for your support. Sincerely, Christine Duffy President, Carnival Cruise Line
  12. Bummer, however I thought the June 27 date was a tad unrealistic. *According to Carnival, the following ships will be the first to enter service, beginning on August 1, out of these ports: Galveston, Texas: Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista Miami, Florida: Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation Other than the above-referenced service from Galveston, Miami, and Port Canaveral, all other North American and Australian homeport cruises will be cancelled through August 31. All Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises from Seattle will be cancelled, as well as the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise on September 25 and the Honolulu–Brisbane transpacific cruise on October 6. All Carnival Splendor cruises in Australia from June 19 to August 31 will be cancelled. https://cruiseradio.net/carnival-cruise-line-resumes-service-august-1-limited-capacity/
  13. Has anyone stayed in this room? Pros? Cons?
  14. Thank you everyone for your great input and suggestions! We watched a bunch of room tour videos and decided to go ahead and give the balcony a try. We ended up choosing deck 7 (thank you for the idea about being sandwiched between other room only areas of the ship!) and decided on a room a couple down from the very back of the ship. Even if we feel more movement, we love the look of the views from back there and there is not much directly above or below. Plus we will be very near camp ocean. We are hoping our next cruise to try a cove balcony. I will miss the spa area though! I bought a pass on my last cruise on the Horizon and utilized the showers and sauna a lot. And it is true that it would make showering with the 4 of us easier! I don't think I will splurge on this one though in addition to the balcony. We will definitely be utilizing the hub app, thank you! Our 11 year MAY have a phone by then. She is very responsible and mature for her age, but we'll see. We were contemplating walkie talkies as I'd seen that suggest somewhere.
  15. We have our 26th cruise booked for October 3rd on the Horizon. I have 2 payments left to make on it. We are crossing our fingers and hoping that we will be sailing. It's my belief that it isn't whether or not Carnival will be ready to sail. It's whether or not the islands and ports of call are ready for us! You have to admit that some of these countries don't have the capability of solving the virus problem and will need assistance from those that do. And that won't happen until the USA has taken care of its citizens first. Let's hope and pray that a vaccine will be developed and given to all of us, and those in other countries, so that we can set sail again soon!
  16. Congratulations. We got an great upgrade offer on the Horizon. From an OV on deck 2 to a family harbor aft balcony on deck 2. Didn’t take too much thought, we took it. Our offer was from an e- mail.
  17. I was checking on our scheduled B2B Panorama for July and they are gone. You can not book Mexico till September. I am hoping as someone said that it is for capacity control. But this happened to our June Horizon cruise and then it was cancelled a week or 2 later. Not looking good! 💔 It appears you can book the Caribbean for August though.
  18. We spend time on youtube. Watched a few seasons of "the cruise"...because we were supposed to leave for miami today for horizon...we watch a cruise blog with a young guy taking a group on the horizon. It was well edited. I have read cruise ship confidential by bruns? First one good. Wife googled cruise ship.horror movies ..did not realize one of jason was on cruise ship..and then we googled comedies..lots out there but we finally pulled out movies of our cruises. My wife has weekly zoom cocktail party with her cruise friends from the breeze.
  19. Ok we all have them . The group tshirtswe purchased for now cancelled cruises. Post them if you want. I am supposed to be flying to miami right now for our cancelled may carnival horizon cruise. i was thinking that a group face masks might be the style on our next cruise.
  20. That’s interesting because I have the opposite. They have refunded the cruise but still waiting for Cheers and specialty dining. We were in the Horizon 3/15 but canceled 3/13.
  21. Hope that one doesn't come to fruition. Based on the replies on another about prebooking shows on Horizon quite a few CCL fans are dead set against that.
  22. I can't find anything on Carnival's site. My mother wants to go on the Horizon at the end of August and it's a stellar deal, but she's over 70 and I've heard other cruises lines are requiring a physician's note. I'm not sure if my mother would pass as she has several stents in her heart as well as AFib. Does anyone know any information? We are fine with booking a cruise in August as we live in South Florida, so pretty flexible if it comes to cancelling/rebooking.
  23. The reservation system started back in 2009 when the Oasis of the Seas debuted and it has continued on Royal with their other Oasis Class as well as Quantum Class ships. At this point it's 8 ships in total all with a minimum of 4900 passengers. NCL adopted this similar system with the introduction of their 2 Breakaway Class ships and the 4 subsequent Breakaway-Plus ships. These 6 ships have around 4000 passengers on them. Carnival has up to this point decided against making reservations necessary, but it really hasn't been needed since Carnival does not offer the Broadway-Lite shows that are comparable to the main shows on either of the aforementioned lines. It would be nice if Carnival offered a reservation system for it's comedy shows so that you would not have to wait 30-60 minutes ahead of time. We lucked out on our Horizon sailings in 2018 and 2019, but it was a different story back in 2013 on the Breeze. Maybe things will be different on the Mardi Gras since her passenger capacity will be much higher than the Vista Class ships.
  24. Oh thank you ALL for your responses. I am planning (was to do the Horizon on the 15th of March, but cancelled out because of the virus, and I really didn't want to do the ship in the first place, but was going along for the ride, as the expression goes) on booking the Fascination for either March or April. There are 8 of us that will be cruising, so I have a few questions. Cruzin Kristin, since you were on the ship during spring break time, I gather that was in March? Did you find it hard to navigate the ship, and did it seem real crowded? Talking about the balcony rooms, it looks like they are heavy to open/close? If you had a choice, would you still go for the balcony room, or get another room? I'm not much into balcony's, as I don't use them that much, but just wondered if there is enough room to navigate around, or is some of the room taken by the balcony? If there is no refrigerator, do they still supply the ice bucket, and also robes, if asking for them?
  25. Thread is a little old but I've got some updates. At this time there are only 3 ships on Carnival that have breweries. Vista, Horizon and Panorama. They are also the only ships where you can buy a growler. Cost is about $50 but refills for the cost of a pitcher is a winner in my book. Our steward was nice enough to keep it on ice for us in our room. My understanding is that you were only supposed to get them refilled on ships with breweries. But hearing that someone got one refilled on the Breeze is great news. The Mardi Gras will be ship #4 with the brewery. Colin Presby, the beermaster for all 4 ships, is a fantastic guy. Very knowledgeable and easy going. If anyone else knows about getting refills on other Carnival ships, please post. My next cruise is on Royal and I'm guessing that they won't refill my Carnival growler. Shucks.
