Carnival Dream - Live - Aug 26-Sep 2 - NOLA to Eastern Carib., Fun Times, Menus, etc

Recommended Posts

I didn’t book any excursions. Everything I did was on my own. If a ticket was required, I bought it at the time of entry.

 

I book my own. You may want to talk to someone who has TA experience. I looked into them once. They couldn’t offer a lower price than carnival but they could give more OBC. At the time the best TA offer was a price $20 more than carnival with $45 more OBC...so I just booked on my own so I wouldn’t lose control of my booking over $25.

 

I always book carnival when I can get $50 obc. So either an obc sale or within 2 weeks of my cruise. Once they coincided and I was able to stack them and get $100 OBC. I had to call carnival to do that though.

 

Thanks for this information. I would visit this

Website and enjoy others tell their stories of their fun times and learn so much. I always wanted to go but was never able to until now. :):)

Thanks for the review. It was very entertaining and informative. It gave me some ideas for my cruise on the Glory.

Bucket,

 

Finally came across a solo guitarist. Is this the one?

My husband and I sail on September 23, your reviews will help a lot. He has never sailed and I have only sailed one time 16 years ago. Thanks so much for all the effort you put into your reviews, they were really fun.

Hey, I haven’t called them all out, but I’m catching what you are throwing out. Cruise critic gold! I dig it.

Everyone I just realized there’s something important I intended to post but totally forgot about once I got that first funship in my hands. I always see people asking about arriving at the port early. See this long line that spans four frames? That’s the early arrival line.

Just curious, for our November 25 cruise on the Dream we have an arrival appointment time of 11:30, which was the earliest available to anyone. In the past we have arrived around 10am and boarding usually starts at 11, 11:15. Will we have to wait outside if we arrive at 10 for this cruise?

I picked my time as soon as they were available and 11:30 was the earliest available to me. I arrived at 11:30. I assume you'd be standing in that other line if you got there early. I don't know when they let people from that long line in. They weren't letting anyone in from that line when I was there.

I went back to look, but didn't see where you discussed embarkation, other than your gangway videos. How was it? If you arrived at 11:30 did you just walk on through to the ship? Were there any lines at check-in?

Walked in, went up stairs, went right through security. They sat us in zones. I was in zone 26 and I think they were on zone 21 when I sat down. It wasn't a very long wait between that time and boarding. Looking at the time stamp on my pictures. I was actually on the Fulton Shuttle at 11:45. Through port security at 12:03. Boarding at 12:15. And sitting in Pasta Bella at 12:22.

How far in advance can you pick your arrival time? We cruise the beginning of May 2019

Put a reminder in your calendar for Feb. I have reminders on all of mine since we have to wait until 90 days out now.
