  1. RCL offers the exact same OBC for Shareholders. I own stock in both companies. I've owned the CCL stock for much longer and the value on it hasn't really increased. Bought RCL stock 3 years ago, and it has sky-rocketed for us.
  2. Yup! Every passenger can set up their own credit card for their charges. When we did my daughter's girl scout cruise many years ago, each person set up their own online account. No need to worry about Grandma running up a casino or booze debt on your dime!
  3. The fee is for the whole cabin, not a per person charge. Still, at $120 for the cabin, I don't see the benefit to it. As someone else said, as a shareholder, go ahead and keep buying it! I'm ready for an increase in my dividends.
  4. If the OBC is part of your booking, it will be divided equally between the first 2 passengers.
  5. I've had my CPAP for 20 years now, and have taken it on about 13 cruises. While I use distilled water at home, I actually use either tap water or the free bottled water I get on Carnival in it. A one week cruise will NOT cause enough of a problem with your CPAP. Trust me! If you absolutely feel the need to use distilled water, order it from Carnival to be delivered to your room. Definitely have an extension cord with you to use. The ship will not be able to accomodate every CPAP user with one onboard. I always have a 10 foot cord packed in my CPAP bag for traveling. Quite a few hotel rooms don't have a convenient outlet for me either.
  6. The showers are really part of the gym, not the spa. They are pretty good size and available during any time the gym is open.
  7. On our last few cruises, the only dining option was always Late dining. My preference is Any time dining, but will accept early if we have to. Being a diabetic, I usually stop by the dining room upon boarding and put in my request for either of the other two options. I can't wait that late to eat and have my glucose levels plummet before dinner. If you have a medical reason, they will generally try to accomodate you. This is why I wish Carnival would post a 4th option, for those who have no intention of eating in the MDR because they prefer the casual nature of the Lido deck. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the same table in the MDR empty every single night, What a shame that the table wasn't made available to someone else.
  8. The ES will only apply if there are still cabins available in the same category you booked. If you booked an 8C, and now they are sold out, you don't really have an option to claim a lower price for credit.
  9. If you want to get in and out quickly, I would suggest you take a look at the menu on the Hub app or posted outside the MDR BEFORE you go there. Arrive there early to get to your table quickly. As soon as your waiter arrives with the menu, tell him/her that you are ready to order. On our last Spring Break cruise in March, we were in no hurry to get through dinner, but we were generally done between 7:00 and 7:15 each night. If you skip dessert, you'll get out quicker as well. Just because the kids program opens up at 7:00, doesn't mean you have to be there right at that time.
  10. I would hate to be stuck on an elevator for even 5 minutes! Now, the guys only shared about a minute of their video. I'm curious why the one Carnival worker appeared to be casually standing there taking video with his own cell phone. I'm sure they wanted to be sure they had their own video in case a problem came of this.
  11. If your girlfriend doesn't drink, it might not be worth it to buy Cheers since both of you in the same cabin would have to buy it. They won't let just one person buy the package.
  12. This was EXACTLY what I was thinking as well. If the same waiter was using their Folio number, I would think that Carnival would want to know about it. I'd be pretty mad if it was happening to me as well.
  13. You'll want to find out what time and where to be to request Tender tickets. We were just in Belize last month, but didn't book any tours this time. I'm not a fan of the tender boats in Belize because it's a good 20 minute ride. Keep in mind that folks who are Platinum, Diamond or have FTTF will have priority over you. If you had booked your tour through Carnival, that would have given you priority. On our cruise, I believe the first tenders started around 8 am. It was probably around 10:30 when they announced that tender tickets were no longer required. Go to either guest services or the tour desk on your first sea day to find out what you need to do. They should be able to tell you what is the earliest time you can pick up tender tickets, where to go and if you all need to request your own tickets, or if you need their S&S cards or what. Don't wait until your ship is anchored in Belize to find out. Most likely one of the lounges will be where you go to pick them up. You might also want to be sure your tour will wait for you if you aren't the first one off the ship.
  14. Just got back from the Freedom about 3 weeks ago. It's a Conquest class. The Aft pool is NOT adults only. Commented on John Heald's public post app-facebook John Heald Conquest, Glory, Valor, Liberty, Freedom, Splendor and Victory all have the aft pools now as family friendly pools. Conquest will get a stunning new Serenity deck during her October dry dock. Like · 181 Replies · 69 · about 2 years ago
