  1. My Kroger here in Atlanta has them-a variety pack wrapped in cellophane. Also has the cups. I didn't realize they weren't available everywhere. I usually bring protein bars, granola bars, etc. Plenty of packaged snacks available.
  2. I don't understand why you can't just go to the your local grocery store and buy the mini boxes of cereal to take with you. I always travel with snacks because of flight delays and other mishaps.
  3. The sugar donuts. I rarely eat donuts at home so while on Princess I get one every day they're offered. (not every day, unfortunately)
  4. My friend is on the Elation tomorrow out of Port Canaveral. They are driving down from Atlanta in the middle of the night. I would hate for them to get all the way there and then be told the cruise is cancelled. The ship returns Monday at 8AM at exactly the same time the hurricane is hitting. What will Carnival do then? Keep them out to sea for an extra day or 2 ? This is her first cruise and she's very upset. She called to see about cancelling, but Carnival told her she will lose all her money if she does since they haven't cancelled it. (yet)
  5. our cruise is the beginning of November and I just booked it yesterday. It said only 6 were still available.
  6. This is the Ecstasy in Jacksonville, to be specific. So you're all saying I should show up around 10:30 and may be on board soon after that? Then FTTF is worth it to us. Thanks everyone!
  7. We are booked in a suite and I was very upset to find out that our cabin would not be ready until 1:30 PM. So I purchased FTTF. I checked in this morning and find that the check-in time is 11:30 a.m. till 12 noon. Does this mean we won't be on the ship until around noon? If so I just paid $80 for FTTF for only an hour and a half of not carrying my luggage around. Not really worth it to me. I thought we might board around 10:30 or 11 so all those hours would be worth it. I usually cruise on Princess and I can get into my room immediately so I'm not used to this. It's stressing me out way too much!
  8. Thank you both. I purchased it.
  9. I just went to purchase FTTF and it says there are 6 left for 12:00. Were there earlier times and I missed out them? Does this mean I can't get on until 12? If so I might as well not buy it and just wait for my room to be ready at 1:30PM. Thank in advance!
  10. Last year on a cruise to Cozumel we did a tequila tasting excursion. We discovered 1800 Cristalino Anejo and loved it! We are doing a short cruise to the Bahamas this year and wondering if it can be found there so we can bring more home. Anyone know of any places that sell it?
  11. I agree, but I'm not spending $80 just to drop my bags after spending so much on the suite itself. We don't have any use for the other FTTF perks.
  12. Thanks everyone, I guess we will be carrying our bags around all morning. Suite passengers are treated much better on other cruise lines.
  13. Princess is $34 one way.
  14. I've been reading through the posts here about boarding times. From what I understand the order of embarking is: Wedding parties Diamond and Platinum Suites FTTF I don't care about wedding parties, but I read that Diamond/Platinum guests and FTTF have their cabins available as soon as they board. But I haven't heard that about suites. Do suite guests have to wait until 1:30PM to enter their cabins? Some of those suites are a lot of money and I would think they'd be ready early too. If it matters, I'm asking about the Ecstasy. Almost time to pick my boarding time and I don't want too early in case I have to carry my luggage around. I really just want to drop bags off, couldn't care less about using my cabin early as we go to lunch and check out the ship and get to the cabin much later. Thanks!
  15. I am not normally a "privacy freak", but for some reason this has always bothered me. I cruise with my mother sometimes and no one needs to know there are two women in the cabin. She couldn't care less. I often wonder why instead of Ms. Mary Smith and Ms. Susan Jones they can't put M. Smith and S. Jones. No one needs to know my first name of that I'm a woman, but yet with the last names on there employees can make sure they have the correct cabin for deliveries. Seems simple to me.....
