  1. I am pretty sure it is a full charter. They usually sell out. And the New Kids aren't so new or kids. They are around 50 years old now.
  2. What airline are you flying on? I know Southwest has EarlyBird check in you can pay for and they check you in 24 hours before your flight. You can then get your boarding passes at the kiosk at the airport.
  3. They were there earlier but I just looked and now I can't find them anywhere either. Makes you wonder if it was a mistake when they were there. I saw someone post that the e-cards they received didn't have a pin number. Maybe they pulled them because of this. I hope it isn't a permanent removal.
  4. Unless things have changed, Carnival goes out of Old San Juan and RC and Celebrity go out the Pan Am Pier. At least that how it was for my cruises out of San Juan on Carnival and Celebrity.
  5. coevan: Go to the top of the page and find coevan with an arrow for a drop down box Click on the arrow. Click on Account Settings On the left side of the page click on Signature Now make sure you have a green check box next to View Signatures. If it is grey then slide it over turn green If you have View Signatures then I would say there is a glitch in the system and you should contact the moderators to see if you can get it fixed. Edit: Of course you must be logged in to do this and to see the signatures.
  6. I didn't receive the email confirming I used the offer either. But my husband received an email for his use. You can check under "Savings" and see if it shows that you redeemed the offer. Mine showed up there a day before the credit appeared on my account.
  7. We stayed in cabin 11241 on the Magic and didn't have any noise. It is under the Spa Reception desk. We have booked cabin 11239 on the Breeze for a b2b in 2021 because the only available cabin on deck 12 was 12008, and we didn't want to take the chance of hearing noise from the gym for 14 days.
  8. If you are flying into the port, than New Orleans is a lot easier than flying into Houston and getting to Galveston. You will find that most people on the cruises out of Galveston drive to the port. That's what we have done every time.
  9. I take the Taxes and Fees to be the "Taxes, Fees and Port Expenses" that are in addition to the cruise fare which is also in your quote. When you look for fares the amount you see is the cruise fare. As we all know there is an additional amount to pay which is the "Taxes, Fees and Port Expenses". This is specifically stated as "Taxes, Fees and Port Expenses" by Carnival. If you look at your confirmation you will say those exact words used under Cruise Charges. It is the separate line from "Cruise Rate". If gratuities cannot be used for gratuities then they would have to separate the drink prices and apply only the price of the drink to the OBC and charge you separately (not to OBC) for the 18% gratuity. Anything could be considered a fee. The price of your drink is the fee you pay to get the drink.
  10. Has something changed? My OBC has always been applied to the gratuities before. Nowhere in your quotes does it say it can't be used for gratuities. I have heard some lines don't allow it. I read someplace that NCL doesn't allow it. Don't know for sure since I haven't cruised with them. Now if you have an OBC credit that is specific to one thing then it can't be used for gratuities. For example, Carnival has offered an OBC for drinks as part of a cruise fare. Then that is all it can be used for. But general OBC (even offered as part of the fare) can be used for gratuities unless there has been a recent change.
  11. In general this is the meaning of the categories: 1 - Is generally cabins with 2 beds that can't be combined to make a larger bed. Sometimes upper and lower bunks. On some ships they can have portholes. 4 - Inside cabin PT - Porthole cabin - official porthole cabin. About the size of the ocean view but with portholes. Beds can be configured as 2 twins or pushed together for larger bed. 6 - Ocean view 7 - Balcony on some ships 8 - Balcony For the letters the lower the letter (A) the lower the cost and supposedly the less desirable cabin. Generally on a lower deck or forward or aft. So a 4A would be a inside cabin most likely on the lowest passenger cabin deck.
  12. I believe on the Splendor all the porthole cabins are far forward on decks 1 and 2. Cabin 2220 was the porthole furthest back and it is still loud. Just be aware. We happen to like them since they are similar to an ocean view but with a porthole instead of a window. We booked them often when they were priced for the same price as a 4A. But Carnival changed their price and now we haven't booked them.
  13. I have been in porthole cabins and 1A's with portholes. I was in cabin 2220 on the Splendor. As with all of these cabins you will have times when the waves are crashing against the hull. I can't sleep without using ear plugs. Even with the ear plugs in I can tell when a wave crashes because there is a definite vibration. But with the ear plugs I am able to sleep well. It seems like we had more crashing sounds when heading south away from Florida. We didn't have much noise at all heading north back to Florida.
  14. I have noticed that sometimes when you use an offer is disappears from "Added to the Card". Other times it is there until the credit appears. If it disappears, sometimes the day before the credit appears you can look under savings and you will see that it has been redeemed. Your credit usually shows up the next day.
