  1. Interested in investing, but have a question. If I bought stock now, would the OBC benefit apply to cruises already booked or only future cruises?
  2. Terrific! Beautiful pics! Fingers crossed for the same beautiful weather.
  3. I recently decided to splurge and upgraded our cabin from a balcony to an Ocean Suite on the Radiance in September. I've seen several OS suite video reviews and am excited with the larger bathroom and spa tub. Are there any other "perks" associated with a suite booking? I think I read (can't remember where) that suites include priority embarkation and debarkation. Is that "for real"? :) Is there anything else I can look forward to? DH's health is not what it used to be and this is likely our "last big fling" before we settle into pottering around the house, so I'm trying to make this experience truly memorable. One other thing: I may have found the last remaining starboard suite. Since we're cruising out of NYC, I wanted to make sure to have a ring-side view of the Statue of Liberty as we sail away. Will we be able to view from our starboard balcony? Thanks!
  4. I've searched, but can't find what I'm looking for. I've noticed that Carnival has different cabin classes - 8B, 8C, 4E, etc. Is there a "cheat sheet" that shows how Carnival rates each of these classes? Is one supposedly better (or worse) than the other? I understand that - theoretically - balcony is "better" than interior or ocean-view, but are there cabins within those categories that are "better" than others? TIA
  5. DH and I have this cruise booked for September 27th this year, and we're really looking forward to it! Hubby can't stand the heat, so couldn't talk him into another Caribbean itinerary. This itinerary - Boston, Portland, Halifax, & St. John - looks to be perfect!
  6. We're on the September 27th sailing. We're flying into NYC the day before, staying in Manhattan, and catching a Broadway show - Chicago!
  7. I'm loving your review. DH and I are sailing on the Radiance out of NYC in September, and I'm really excited. I especially love the sail away pictures. I booked a balcony on the starboard side just for that view!
  8. Sorry - we're on Carnival Radiance, departing from NYC.
  9. DH and I are booked for Canada/New England cruise from NYC in September. We're also flying in the day before. I've booked Carmel for transportation from LGA to Manhattan. Cost is +/- $60.00, which includes tolls and gratuities. I haven't yet booked transport from the hotel to the port for the following day, as I don't know yet what my check-in time for the cruise is. If the trip from LGA to Manhattan goes well, I may use the same service for the quick trip to the cruise ship the next day.
  10. Thanks everyone! We're really excited!
  11. Thank you! That's what I was thinking we'd do . . . hit the shops and find the Freedom Trail. - I just wasn't sure about the docking situation. I'm sure we'll enjoy your city. :)
