  1. Hello, We will be joining you on this cruise. It will be myself, My husband, 14 year old son and my parents. Can't wait!
  2. I would go with the cheapest cruise fare. I don't usually consider a lower deposit a deal, imo.
  3. Deleted. If I kept reading, I would have received my answer.
  4. This was my thought. Maybe the TA (if you used one) is charging you for having to call to make the changes. I always booked with carnival and have never been charged an admin fee when doing an upgrade. The only time I was charged was when I had to cancel a cruise and we did es.
  5. I liked both, but they are different. With Vista the vibe and food is better imo. On Allure there is more to do and the shows are better. The included food on Allure was awful in my opinion. We are doing the Mardi Gras in October 2021 and Symphony in Nov 2021, with that being said I will be purchasing the udp. Also, I don't know if this would be a factor for you but I seem to spend more on Royal for things included on Carnival. They are both great ships and you can't go wrong with either.
  6. Can you use the ultimate dining package on a holiday like thanksgiving?
  7. I agree totally. However, your statement can apply to just about anything. A party, a rally, a re-election convention, church, flights, etc. No matter where you go or what you do, if it is in a group or crowd it can happen. With that being said life is continuing. Just about every state regardless of numbers are opening and they have said the economy will not shut down again regardless of what happens. The dollar is more important. Why should cruise lines be any different. No one is expected to abide by the CDC guidelines but the cruise lines. Why? Y'all this is just my opinion. After saying that, I do not go out unless I have to and when I do, I wear my mask. When cruising begins I will live vicariously through your reviews. I do not intend to start cruising again until Oct of next year, hopefully everything will be under control by then.
  8. I thought I read or saw someplace that cruises are now canceled through September 15. I could be wrong.
  9. That is not true with many people. I lifted and shifted my Harmony cruise in November to Symphony of the Seas November 2021. I was due almost $1,000 in dining, drink and internet packages. That was on May 20 and I still have not received my refund. I think all cruise lines are being slow in refunding money.
  10. 1. Value 2. Fun Squad 3. Food- I didn't appreciate this until I went on Royal. ( Don't get me wrong they are a great line but the food is terrible imo.)
  11. I can actually agree with this. However, I would go a step further and say when in .... do as ....does. So, if cruising from Japan and it is not customary to tip or it is considered rude (and the tip is probably included in the cruise price) then there should not be a tip. However, if cruising from the US then pay the tip because it is customary and therefore not included in the cruise fare.
  12. That's a relief. That is how my husband and son dresses, so it should be fine. Thank you!
