I've been trying for two weeks to sign up for the Meet and Mingle on the 1/13/18 Miracle Panama Cruise. The page lets me complete everything, but our sail date is not listed to select. I have sent three emails to the link shown for help, but no answer yet!! Can we just show up, or is it that important to sign up ahead of time??

There will now be Official Meet & Mingle Parties on board your 7-day or longer Carnival cruise!

Enjoy!

I’m having the same issue... maybe there’s not the minimum 25 people signed up? And there isn’t one for our cruise dates?

Question I just went thru and signed our entire group up for the M&M by each stateroom for our cruise . Will Everyone get an invitation in their staterooms? I am the only one that is a CC member and I am the leader of our group cruise. We have 9 rooms total.

With my cruise less than 14 days away, I don't see a way to sign up for the M&M on the site. If pre-registration required to attend?

May 9, 2018 is not listed for Carnival Horizon for Cruise Critic Meet and Mingle. Can someone fix that? There are 116 signed up but it is not a choice now.

On our Dream cruise on January 7, we signed up for the Meet & Mingle. We got invitations sent to our cabin. It was also listed on the paper copy of the Fun Times but not on the Hub Fun Times. I coerced about 11 or 12 members of my group into attending. There was one other couple there. The meeting was in a hard-to-find reception room. There were pastries, cookies, tea and punch on a side table. We were in a big empty room, so we pulled up chairs into a circle. A waiter said that the cruise director and a ship's officer would be attending. Neither showed up. We waited around for about 30 or 40 minutes. I was embarrassed that I got people to attend.

Which is why they are wasting their time supporting it.

They send a paper invite to the cabins who registered during your cruise. We received ours the day before. So you will have to hope that someone in your cruise group posts this information to you group Facebook page, if you have one.

We attended our Meet n Mingle 2 weeks ago on our cruise. We were all expecting it to be held the first sea day, but NOPE - happened wednesday (over halfway through the cruise!) on a PORT day, 30 minutes after the ship left port at 5:30 PM. So basically the attendance was pretty low since some people were still showering and cleaning up after being in port all day, and out of the ones who were there half of us had to leave early because of 6pm dining times. They provided some tea, lemonade, and water as well as some cookies and pastries. A ship officer and our CD stopped by. But honestly, it was kind of a waste of time. This either needs to happen on the first sea day or not at all. I won't go to another one.

Editing to say ours was held in the piano bar.

On the February 10th sailing of the Sunshine, our M&G was held on the 1st sea day at 1 PM in the Red Frog Cantina. It was well attended, since our group from another social media sight also had our M&G at the same time. Since many of us were in both groups, it worked out well...

We sailed on the Carnival Breeze on 2/25.
Signed up for the roll call but did not sign up for the meet and mingle since I had read about people not showing and did not want to be "one of them".
I didn't see this as an issue since the minimum had already been met.

Decided to crash, so when we boarded on Sunday I went to Guest Services and asked for info on the meetup.
She wrote all the details down - Monday 10am - 11am at the Piano Bar. 37 people signed up to attend.

I also saw it listed in the Fun Times as well.

We dallied at breakfast and didn't get to the Piano Bar until 10:15.
A nice sign showing the room was reserved for the Cruise Critic Meet and Mingle was outside.
There was a lovely setup with a variety of juices, coffee, tea, sandwiches and pastries.

2 older couples (in their 70s) were over in the corner playing a card game.
We asked if they were there for Cruise Critic.
They said no, but that there had been 3 Cruise employees there until a few minutes ago waiting to serve our group, but since no one had showed after 10 minutes they left and told them they could use the facility.


My wife and I waited for about 20 minutes (during which time we unwrapped the snacks and helped ourselves.)
By 10:40, some cruise employees showed up, saw no one was really there and began dismantling it.

VERY disappointed that out of 37 people, only two party crashers bothered to attend.

My wife commented that this must be what people were talking about, and how if she was Carnival she would be pretty upset that they had gone to all the trouble to lay out a nice setup and no one bothered to show.
