Back to the fan and power strip issue....

Not so at all. If the items in question are in good repair there won't be any issues.

Heeleys wer prohibited on the OLD list. Carnival must not have enforced it if they were onboard.

You're not going to believe this...you can only take on two bottles of wine, you can't take any other booze at all. Those beards....must be trying to get us to cruise elsewhere.
What's next no luggage at all?

I would LOVE to believe that but they DID take a curling iron from a passenger last week, BEFORE the new rules were in effect.

Believe me, I don't want to burn up in my sleep, but I think they overdid it this time. Lots of covering their own a$$.

No worries. I'm going to use the white noise app on my phone and leave my fan at home when I leave in a couple days. Not taking any chances....

LOL! Who's is going to determine if they pose a fire hazard Boy that has cover my butt written all over it.........


Notice the red! No one uses hair dryers that are that weak, that is the complaint with the ones on the ship to begin with.

Nope. None of the rooms on Ecstasy have hairdryers. Pack your own or you'll save LOTs of money on pictures like I did.

Confiscated Items
• Alcohol (hard liquor)/sealed, unopened bottles
• Beer/sealed, unopened bottles/cans

Prohibited Items – will be disposed of prior to boarding
• Alcohol in unsealed containers

So are they saying we can't bring our alcohol on board, but we can drink it all while in line to board? That'll make it a FUN embarkation line!
