  1. Thanks to all for your responses.....hopefully we will find the game somewhere on the ship.
  2. Will we be able to watch Sunday football on our 12/14 Equinox Cruise? Where? Specifically the Bears/Packer game.
  3. Do you use a credit card or number to open and close the safe on the Liberty?
  4. Should your drink pkg "classic" show somewhere on your Express Pass? Do you receive your Sign & Sail card when you check-in at the Port or is it outside your cabin when you board? What should it say on your card to denote you have the classic pkg? Cruise Critic people are the best.......
  5. Four of us sailing on the Equinox - all have the Classic Beverage Package - on 3 of our Xpress Passes along side our Elite is the word "Pearl". What does that stand for?????? Should I be concerned that one of us does NOT have the word Pearl on their Express Pass?
  6. Have been on Celebrity many times, but in the past were given the Premium Drink pkg. but, this time only the Classic, so some clarification would be appreciated. I know you can upgrade a drink & pay the difference over a certain $ amount plus 18% gratuity and I understand the classic cocktails will be made only with the liquor offered in the classic pkg. My question is exactly what mixed drinks are included?? Martini - Manhattan - Old Fashion -Margaretta - other drinks made in the blender etc.
  7. Thanks everyone for your advise to just relax & take photo at check-in.
  8. Can someone help a computer illiterate ....... trying to get my on-line express pass, but it wants me to update a photo. I don't have the ability on my computer to take photo....can I use my Ipad? If so can you walk me through the process.
  9. Sailing on the Paradise 4 nt cruise 10/17/2019. Questions for any recent cruisers on this ship. I know they have drink specials at the Casino bar on embarkation day....are they available any other days? Does the Paradise have the Red Frog Pub? & if so do they offer the Fish bowl drink & if they do, what is the cost? Can you order a pitcher of Margaritas? & if so where & when?
  10. Thinking of booking this cruise, but read somewhere, can't remember where that the Eclipse was going in for extensive rehab in March of 2020. Concerned it may not be ready for service by the sail date of April, 2020. Anyone know if that is the rehab schedule?
  11. Just off the Carnival Paradise & we had 2 cabins - booked my husband in one with grandsons & I in the other with a grandson (for the perks). On the ship go to guest services and they will switch....no problem.
  12. Granddaughter forgot a couple things (just clothes) in our cabin U97 on the Paradise 7/11 cruise. Any way to get them back?
  13. Going to be docked at the Carnival Cozumel pier on Saturday 7/13th. Husband has walking issues....do they have some type of transport from pier???? & then back to ship????
  14. Looking for info about luggage valet......how does it work? how do you sign up? etc.
  15. What is strange about: (not the whole post just the jest of them) 1st post read: Just wondering do the men have to wear long pants on the elegant night or will dress shorts be OK 2nd post read: Wow! a simple yes or no would have been enough. I asked the question because I had told my grandchildren I didn't think they would have an elegant night on a 4 day cruise. 3rd post read: We are a group of 10 - 8 grandchildren(between the ages of 17 - 26) Trying to save space in our 2 cabins with 5 in each cabin. Can you explain why this "story keeps getting stranger and stranger" - just started out a simple yes or no question, then people seemed to need more info....so I added my reason for asking then everyone seemed to think I was talking about little grandkids so wanted to clarify. Have to say I'm a little hurt at your remark that it keeps getting stranger and stranger. We are a 75 year old grandmother & grandfather in 7th heaven because our grandchildren are all joining us on this cruise. I was just trying to make sure what I had said about no elegant nights was correct. What I thought was a simple question. In my past experience with Cruise Critic I have always received helpful responses, especially from the Carnival site.
  16. Didn't mean to start a controversy.....just wanted to clarify for my grandchildren what they need to pack. I guess I wasn't clear - just didn't want to be turned away from the dining room. We are a group of 10 - 8 grandchildren and Grandpa & Grandma. The grandchildren range in age from 17 to 26 so not little kids. We have two Grand Suites with 5 of us in each cabin.....since five in the cabin, space will be limited & I was trying to stress to them to PACK LIGHT. No problem with the girls, they love to dress-up - the boys & grandpa not so much. I did stress to the boys that collard or button down shirts were needed for the dining room & shorts that require a belt. I think I will just leave it at that.....and since no other people will be at our table I'm sure not one will be offended. Now my pet peeve is seeing people in the dining room wearing baseball caps, but to each his own.....we are on vacation! This cruise was the Number One item on our bucket list. Spending 4 days with all our grandchildren. We feel truly blessed that they all were able to join us for this cruise.
  17. WOW! a simple Yes or No would have been enough. Yes, I know the definition of "dressy" & I never meant to suggest it is "difficult" to put on a pair of slacks...........my question was for my grandchildren....and "just thought I would clarify". I told them I didn't think they had any "dressy" nights on a 4 day Carnival cruise & was just trying to verify what I had said. Guess I will think twice before I post a question on Cruise Critic. What would have happened if I had asked about smuggling alcohol???? Just Kidding....Just Kidding.
  18. Just wondering.....tried to use Search to find but no luck. Do the men have to wear long pants on the Paradise 4 day cruise on Elegant night or will dress shorts be OK. Also, what time is the Family Comedy Club show? Trying to plan a dinner time.
  19. What pier does Carnival Paradise dock in Cozumel?
  20. Any suggestions on the best way to get 10 of us from the cruise ship to Paradise Beach and what the cost would be....
  21. Thanks for the review. We are a family of 10 going to Paradise Beach in July. Looking for suggestion of how to get from the ship to beach and the cost. I know you said it cost $15.00 each way but was that per person or for four. Any idea if we could get One 10 person van?
  22. Can someone advise if you have to use a card to open the safe on the Paradise? Do you have to use your card to turn on/keep on lights? Also, can you open the divider between balcony cabins?
  23. Thanks - appreciate the update on the iphone jacks and outlets - Will keep my fingers crossed that the balcony door between cabins can be opened - thinking it might be a way of communicating with each other. As for the extra inside room.....already broke the bank with the airline tickets HA!HA! I have mentioned to them over & over "Pack Light". Pretty sure the boys will adhere....it's those girls I'm worried about.
