Really should depend on who we’re playing. If you are an eagles fan you should always go for the afc team against an nfc team. Rams next week...pick a favorite. Cowgirls at the end of month on SNF...be a big Saints fan. 

As an Eagles fan and a Saints fan, I always go for those.   

As an Eagles fan and a Saints fan, I NEVER go for the Cowboys, Falcons, Giants.  

And, NEVER EVER the Patriots....

bam.

fire started.

Loved following you on your cruise. We are staying at Prytania on the 27th and parking at Fulton. What time do you think we should get to Fulton to get a good parking spot. Does the terminal open at 10:30? Thanks

Just staying one night at Prytania? I think they let you park there for free during the cruise if you stay two nights. Anyway...I usually would try to get to Fulton 30 minutes before I want to be at the terminal. So if you're trying to get to the terminal at 10:30, I would head to Fulton at 10. I think it's open at 10:30. I'm not a D/P/FTTF guy. The earliest arrival time I get is 11:30...So I'm never there before 11. They are always boarding when I get there so I think 10:30 is good.

Do you have a recommendation for somewhere to eat Friday night. Hoping to be checked in by 5pm Friday.

 

Let me add, my wife only likes grilled chicken or steak but I can eat about anything.

 

Thanks

Yes sir. My wife is very picky about what she eats so if you have a recommendation that has a good steak or grilled chicken that would really help. I love about anything that could be put on the table in front of me.

Your hotel is not far from a Houston's and from John's Steakhouse on St. Charles Ave. 

 

You could even walk.

You're like right next to Lula's. You may want to check out their menu and see if it'll work for you. The owner there worked at Commander's Palace which is one of the biggest restaurants in New Orleans...where Emeril worked before he opened his own restaurant. Lula's also makes their own vodka, rum, and gin if you're into that.

I always get the drink package. It’s easily worth it to me. Just the two bloody marys I get in the morning and three alchemy drinks I usually get before dinner pay for the package. Everything else is gravy. It really depends on the person. This is one area where it’s better being solo because I don’t have to worry about someone else getting the package and whether or not it will be worth it for them. A lot of times couples will debate it because one will drink enough but the other won’t. I have had cruises where I drank enough to cover two packages though...my Dream cruises last year were like that.

I was really close to the bridge and I wasn’t telling the captain he was #1

If he backs in now, maybe the pilot doesnt have to take her out to sea?

 

Just guessing - Saving money on pilots

Greg, I know we all miss cruising, but I also miss reading all your reviews. I guess I may have to go back and reread all of the reviews I’ve already read. Boy, I wish we could cruise soon, but Im afraid my 14 day Journey cruise to Panama Canal on the Freedom in January will be the next on the chopping block. I had my B2B on the Magic in April cancelled, and I transferred all my FCC to the January cruise. If this one gets cancelled, I will transfer all FCC to my B2B on the Mardi Gras in January 2022.

Thanks! I sure hope we're cruising by January. It's weird not being able to really plan anything for my cruises. I have Freedom and Mardi Gras next year as well. Hopefully far enough into the year to be safe. Panama Canal is on my list. It would have to be the 9-day partial for me though and everything would to fit just right with the dates...one of these days...

Yes, very weird. I usually have purchases for my cabin made by now, along with all my excursions booked. I have nothing done for my upcoming cruise. I just can’t plan, and that’s very depressing. But I do have $1200 OBC that Carnival gave me for the cancelled B2B cruises, so I will just book onboard if we go.

That's a nice bit of OBC. I'm going to have a total of $850 on my Alaska cruise if it sails. But looking at the excursion prices, I'm going to be able to spend that easily.

Since I have learned by reading here that you are the NOLA Guru, I have a question for you.  We will be sailing out of NOLA in April, 2021 on this same itinerary.  Is there a restriction on when alcohol can be purchased onboard?  Like, when we're X miles down the river or not until we're in the Gulf, for instance?  We've done this trip before but I can't remember the particulars.  Thanks!

You're talking about buying alcohol at a bar onboard? If so it's as soon as you board.

And if you have cheers, you can use that right away as well. Some ports like Galveston don’t see cheers the first day but in New Orleans you’re good.

Very true Greg. BUT.....one can still get a drink while still on board in Galveston. It just gets charged to your Sail & Sign card. I had a Funship Special(my drink of choice on our cruise)

Yeah I’ve had plenty of drinks the first day in Galveston. I didn’t say you can’t drink the first day in Galveston. I said you can’t get cheers the first day.
