  1. Wow, that's a sad story for sure. Not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night so I think she should have been airlifted.
  2. Anyone read about this yet? I searched and did not find any other posts. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6891277/Passengers-got-stuck-Carnival-Cruise-ship-elevator-hour-banned-future-travel.html If I could surmise what happened, the six guys tried to pry open the doors. Not sure why the staff did not tell them to stand back and NOT touch the doors. Being banned seemed kinda heavy handed. I never been stuck in an elevator so I cannot imagine what that would be like. We take the Inspiration about three times a year and never have had any issues. We're on her in June and taking some first time cruisers. Any first hand accounts, rumor mill stuff etc etc?
  3. Instead of throwing out old used up workout clothes (even old tennis shoes), the wife and I save them and then take those on our cruises for when we want to workout. Then we just place them in a bag and put them in the nearest garbage after wearing them. Saves space for the return trip and makes room for any items purchased. *Don't worry, these are workout clothes that I would not even donate to GoodWill, Amvets etc.
  4. We've been buying Cheers and other lines drink package since they were all in trial\testing. We enjoy it, the freedom and the knowledge that I can have any drink I want and not have to worry.
  5. Could have purchased this... https://brazynlife.com/collections/frontpage/products/the-morph-collapsible-foam-roller
  6. I've never had a problem eating healthy on any cruise I've ever taken.
  7. No problem. Happy to help. Did you know there is a crossfit cruise?....https://wodonthewaves.com/
  8. I posted this link and some other info in your other thread. Hope this helps! https://www.cruisecritic.com/photos/ships/serenade-of-the-seas-282/vitality-fitness-center-214436/vitality-fitness-center--v10797296/
  9. I have noticed more and more gyms with C2's. Even the small little ship I take out of Long Beach a couple times a year has one. Looks like the Serenade does have a rower. Here is a link to the pics of the gym... https://www.cruisecritic.com/photos/ships/serenade-of-the-seas-282/vitality-fitness-center-214436/vitality-fitness-center--v10797296/ Word of warning though....any ship fitness area gets busy. My wife and I get there as soon as they open, especially on sea days. On days where you are at port, most people are getting off for their excursions so it will be not so busy. On port days, it will get more busy later in the afternoon as people return to the ship, usually around 3 to 5 pm. Definitely look up dumbbell and bodyweight routines.
  10. D'oh....you're right, got my ships mixed up...Not Dream but Miracle. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2018/06/28/carnival-cruise-line-miracle-san-diego-return/741547002/
  11. They just used about ten acres of land on a car rental lot. The land is there. If the city and or port is serious about the cruise industry, they need to make it as easy as possible to get parked and to the terminal. New Orleans, Long Beach, Charleston, NYC, etc etc ALL have dockside parking. If I came to San Diego and needed to bounce around to three different lots to find a parking spot, that would be the LAST time I come to San Diego. But alas, the Port is run by a bunch of monkeys and they'd rather have pie in the sky plans instead of supporting what is already there...Seaport Village anyone? And cmon, views of the bay? Look at all the Little Italy, hotels and new condos blocking the view to the bay. Laughable. And to remind you...San Diego is getting a Carnival ship here in 2020.
  12. Got off Imagination a couple days ago. The "playoff" games were shown on the tv's in the coffee shop and the bar in the back of the ship in the buffet.
  13. It's an absolute embarrassment (as a San Diegan) that the Port of San Diego cannot get a parking lot to adequately supply parking for cruise guests. I've always said the Port of SD couldn't manage a hot dog stand so I don't expect it to get fixed any time soon. They better get their act together though because the Carnival Dream starts two years of departures here in 2020.
  14. The wife and I break even by noon. It's not really hard to do....Mimosa or bloody Mary for bfast. If sea day...we will start drinking immediately and will generally have a drink every hour up until dinner then we will get ready for dinner and have a drink while waiting to be sat...then once we get sat...then more after dinner. It's harder on port days but we can still hit 10 drinks easy on sea days.
