  1. We sailed out of San Pedro last April. Luggage was a breeze except a hiccup when we got off the cruise in Fort Lauderdale. There was a woman directing porters to passengers in Port Everglades and we got a porter right away but another person who worked at the terminal came over and tried to take away our porter. It didn't work and we got out of there and to our car just fine. P.S. I am NYTBL. Enjoy cruising. I'd like to take a cruise some day with other TBLs.
  2. I got a lead to this internet article which confirms the drydock facility at Grand Bahama is open for business and confirmed the Carnival Ecstasy is scheduled to drydock there October 6 to 16. So Ecstasy wasn't scheduled for PC October 9 despite what crew center said. https://www.cruisehive.com/grand-bahama-shipyard-in-freeport-resumes-dry-dock-operations/34449
  3. Thanks for the lead, after looking at your link I came across this on the same website: https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/21511-grand-bahama-shipyard-open-for-business-2.html That appears to answer my question about Freeport being able to continue drydock activities.
  4. New Questions: Can the New Grounds Package be purchased beforehand using complimentary OBC? Can you purchase the New Grounds Package after the first day of sailing? How does one purchase the package once on board? Passenger Service Desk?
  5. I've read that Ecstasy is due for drydock October 6 to 16. Having been to Freeport Bahamas, I've seen carnival ships in drydock there. I have a few questions about this drydock. 1. Is the info about planned drydock dates for Ecstasy accurate? 2. Is the drydock planned for Freeport? 3. Is Freeport able to handle ships for drydock after Dorian? Thank you.
  6. Lots of detective work being done here. I'm not sure I'd want to be on a murder mystery cruise with you folks!
  7. Thanks for double (triple??) checking our posts. I now have some info that I should disclose to those reading this thread and may be relying on one of my prior posts. I previously posted that it seems that Carnival Ecstasy will be in drydock October 6 to 16. From prior trips to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, I am aware that at least some Carnival ships drydock in Freeport. I don't know if that is where Ecstasy is scheduled for drydock and if so, I don't know if the facility in Freeport will be up and running after Dorian. I may start a thread on Carnival's board and see if anybody there has up to date info about Ecstasy and the drydock. At any rate, I don't think Carnival could create a cruise itinerary for Ecstasy and fill it at such a late date. Maybe they can drydock her at any number of facilities in the US.
  8. Yeah, but it was after a few Long Island Iced Teas...
  9. I was referring to the poster that claims no passport is needed to fly back into the US. He apparently used a passport in Toronto in order to fly home. I guess his advice that no passport is needed didn't even convince him before he went to Toronto. Not only is getting a passport not a waste of money, it's worth its weight in gold.
  10. Why did you bother to bring a passport if you don't need one? Seems as if the cost of the passport would be an awful waste of money if you didn't need one.
  11. Time will tell... No matter what, you created a thread that kept us busy.
  12. It would be helpful to know what your source of information is. It could help to clear up any misunderstandings.
  13. The link I posted only shows Crown Princess at Princess Cay on October 9. I posted the link for https://www.cruisetimetables.com/#destports . Are you looking at crew-center.com? I didn't post that one. I suggest going to the 'horses mouth' and check Carnival's website directly. You won't find any Ecstasy cruises between October 5 and October 16.
