  1. It was almost a year ago I purchased our November 30, 2020 cruise, so we are down to 369 days now.
  2. Thanks - I sent a text to my husband and he said the same thing, so I did!
  3. I got an offer to upgrade. We are currently on the 6th deck, balcony, and the offer is for a balcony on either the 8th deck, the Lido or the Panorama. On either the Lido or Panorama, the room we were offered is right across from the elevator. We haven't done pre-paid gratuities and we've already paid. The upgrade charge is $24 (a day? I'm not clear on that). I ask you, the Carnival experts...what would you do?
  4. I booked last year on Black Friday with a $50 deposit, and like others have stated, it reduces the upfront cost, not the total cost (although they were running specials on the total cost, too).
  5. My hubs and I are shipping out in 508 short days (we're old, time passes quickly) from Miami on the Conquest, and I am having trouble deciding on a shore excursion for Cozumel. I would love to hear your opinions, I've been reading the reviews on the Carnival website but I'm having trouble finding a stand-out, must do excursion. I would love to hear from YOU about your Cozumel Carnival excursion experience, as well as alternative excursions you may have done. Thanks!
  6. I have no real memory of the boarding experience, so I assume it went smoothly, in both NYC and Port Canaveral.
  7. I have only gone out of Port Canaveral & NYC, and they were both awesome. In NYC we hit the Intrepid before boarding, so that was cool, and of course the skyline and the Statue of Liberty are just heartstopping. When we went out of Port Canaveral, there was a launch, so that was also a pretty cool departure!
  8. I'd be buying the food and other necessities for the cruise. Probably a land-based job, to be honest. Alternatively, I could be performing as a singer!
  9. We were on the Splendor with our kids and we played an epic game of of Monopoly.
  10. We reserved for the CT on our upcoming (644 days and counting) cruise. I plan to eat extremely lightly that day! I have been to a multi-course dinner in the past and finished everything but I was also drinking heavily (it was a beer dinner) and making bad choices because of that!
