  1. The color of your luggage tags are based on your deck, not category you are in.
  2. Sorry, Yes you get access to the Havana Cabana area. You also get one free bag of laundry, bottle of water and that's about it.
  3. A met a Cruise travel agent while I was in Myrtle Beach this year. I decided to try her and book a cruise with her. The rate I got from her was the same rate as on Carnival's site, but she gave me a $200 onboard drink credit. She'll be sending me my luggage tags already printed out and checking for rate drops. So far, I am very happy with her! I'm cruising next month and I booked via a Carnival rep. The whole booking has been a disaster. The cruise fare went down by $500 and when I called Carnival they would not honor it because they said I booked under a special rate. When I asked 'how would I know that, because nothing on my booking says what rate I was booked under. She told me I should have looked on the their website. I asked her if I was booking with a Carnival rep, why would I have to go online? I have booked many cruises directly through the website and never had this problem. Since the balance needed to be paid in a few days, I paid the entire amount when I booked. The rep told me he could only give me late seating for dinner and I told him that wouldn't work for me because I'm diabetic. He told me that in that case there would be not problem. Paid for the cruise and hung up. He called me back a few minutes later to tell me I might have to take the late seating. When I told him that I get sick if I wait too long for dinner, he told me I could eat at the buffet or order room service! He told me I needed my doctor to fax them a letter stating I was diabetic, my booking #, sail date, ship name and my husband's name, and they might switch my dinning. I call my doctor right after I hung up and the office told me she wasn't in and she would do it the next day. The next day I called Carnival back and the lady on the phone told me they had already lifted the waitlist because they received the letter from my doctor and that I had priority seating because we are in a suite. A few hours later I get a call from my doctor's office saying they were about to fax the letter over and wanted me to confirm it was the correct information before they sent it. So, when Carnival said they received the letter, they actually received nothing.
  4. I was on her 2 years ago. It has been my least favorite ship. I was excited to cruise on her because everyone seemed to love her. My husband, sister and brother-in-law was also on this cruise and we all felt the same way. While something is not our cup of tea, everyone what their own opinions. We were on the Conquest a couple of years ago before she went in to be refurbished. She needed a lot work! Even with all the cosmetic issues, it was one of our best cruises and we would sail on her again in a heartbeat. Don't take to heart what everyone is saying, go and have a good time! Book some spa treatments for her onboard...and a new purse before you go will do Magic!
  5. We have been on the Explorer of the seas. It was a very nice ship!
  6. I cruised out of San Juan on the Fascination about 20 years ago. I can't believe this same ship is still doing this same cruise. I wish Carnival would replace her with a newer ship. We no longer choose to sail on the Fantasy class ships.
  7. I am wondering the same thing. Our cruise starts on November 30 and ends December 8.
  8. Our grand suite on the Horizon gives us access to the Havana pool area!
  9. Could you be referring to the 'Havana Cabana Suites', which has 4 cabins? 2 on each side between the Havana Balcony suites. They are a lot smaller than the Grand Suites.
  10. We would much rather fly into Hartford, CT, coming home. It is a 15 day cruise. Maybe rent a car and drop off near the port in New York and have a family member pick us up in Hartford.
  11. We will be doing a repositioning cruise that starts at the port in New York and ends in Port Canaveral. We live in Connecticut so we'll be driving to New York. We are thinking about parking our car at JFK and taking an Uber or Lyft to the port. How easy it is to get to the port from JFK? Does anyone know of the approx. cost? Thank you Kathy
  12. In less than three hours my twin sister and I will have been around the sun 61 times! Happy Birthday Sid! I am enjoying this wonderful review and will be on the Horizon in another 9 weeks! My twin sister ( Eva) will be on her in Feb., she is also enjoying your review.
