  1. I just booked cabin 7449 & it leaves from Port Canaveral in Feb. 2020. There is what looks like stairs at the end of the hall beside this cabin. No one at Carnival or my travel agent can tell me what is there. Do you know? Does this ship feel crowded? People seem to say they lined up for everything & getting food when coming back from shore excursions was impossible, either venues were closed or unbelievable lines.
  2. So the price is $350 more for the 2 of us. The amount of time in each port is very similar. The Breeze is Port Canaveral & the Conquest is Miami. Coming from Vancouver B.C. getting into Miami would be easier even with the connecting flight. How do I get from Orlando airport to Port Canaveral ? Thank you for your thoughts regarding the comparisons.
  3. Since we have never been on either & they both do the same ports in Feb 2020, San Juan, Turks, St Thomas, HELP, which ship & why?
  4. I too have been to that area & can not remember how to get back there again. If you rediscover please message here. Thanks
  5. We got Thinksport especially for Hawaii. It passes all their new rules, doesn't smell bad, easily absorbs into the skin & I am a blonde, blue eyed, fair skinned Canadian! Last cruise to Hawaii my reef safe sun screen was really difficult to apply & left a white residue.
  6. I was looking at the Panorama Havana cabin 5220. It is an extra $950 for the cruise I want to take compared to a regular balcony & I am trying to decide if it is worth it. From what I can calculate there are about 63 Havana cabins using the area. Would that make it crowded? Can you do any swimming in the pool or is it a plunge pool? I also read somewhere about reserved seating by the pool. It sounds lovely, but bad balcony neighbours, traffic after 7pm on the walkway, or a noisy nightclub at night, could ruin the experience. Any info is appreciated.
  7. We also have a late flight (10:30pm) We thought we would take the luggage to the airport & check it , then rent a car or Uber & sight see for the day. Apparently most airports/airlines allow up to 4 hours ahead of flight time. Also try this. https://www.baggagestoragehawaii.com/
  8. Having done this trip twice in a rental car going to Hana & back gives you more time at each of the stops. The original plan by the ship sounded sooo rushed! Bring your bathing suits so you can take a dip at the black sand beach & good walking shoes if you decide to take a short hike which we also enjoyed. We did do the backside once in a rental car & although I am glad we did, I would say for the optimum once in a lifetime trip do the one way there & back. Hint: Go to Hana directly enjoy the drive & then backtrack to stop at the sights. Not only are you opposite the main traffic both ways, but you can guage your time better! Leave as soon as you can, get a picnic lunch to take with in Paia on the left hand side of the road as soon as you enter the town area, about $10 pp & they sell CD's & give traffic weather info. ENJOY!!
  9. Just an add on...Snorkle Bobs rents equipment at seveal locations on all the islands & you can return it to any other location any island.
  10. If it has to be Kaui then for beginners Poipu Beach in Southern Kaui is a good place. Calm water, lots of fish, walk in from the beach.
  11. So my travel agent said no it is for 2 people only. Apparently in all my searching I had come across some erroneous info which is why I was double checking!. Thank you Host Clarea your help was appreciated.
  12. Cabin 9248 is listed as 4B but there are no markings indicating anything special about the room. When booking I counted on a sitting sofa, coffee table, 2 night tables, dressing table & fridge & the 2 beds that could be made into a king.apx. 200 sq ft & a balcony 45 sq ft. Yet when looking at other places & info it says sleeps 5.😵
  13. Thanks that is the way I read the deck plans but then how would it sleep 5?
  14. I booked 9248 & am concerned if it has a Pullman. Does anyone know? Also a picture would be so much appreciated!
  15. Well that is distressing news. We are doing our 3rd Vancouver to Hawaii in Sept. The other 2 cruises were with Carnival & we sailed by the volcano on the Big Island each way so both sides of the ship got to see the lava flows. We always stoped in Kuaui as well. We did both an April & a Sept.cruise. We did not see the Napali coastline however.
