  1. There are two MDR on the Horizon. The aft (Meridian?) both levels used for YTD. You check in on deck five at a desk not at the dining room entrance and they will tell you which level to go to, or check in on the App. Not sure if you can just go to the dining room and check in--probably. Mid ship MDR (Reflections?) is used for set time dining.
  2. Fair enough but if they have read all the comments, they would know. But, as we know, many people don't read through. Additionally, "passport" means the original (to most people) and "copy of passport" means a Xerox or photocopy--paper or electronic. With birth certificate there enters some confusion as you can have a "copy" or a "certified copy" which sometimes get used interchangeably--or understood interchangeably.
  3. Well of course, Not JUST a copy. In addition to passport rather than taking BC and an electronic copy of BC along as suggested by others
  4. We just take a copy of passport—which also goes ashore with us instead of the passport.
  5. You don’t live in MN where it also took 3 months to get my DL (enhanced—this the ID requirements). Believe me I argued with them about the passport being proof of BC after two months had gone by before they told me that.
  6. Why would you take a birth certificate if you have a passport? Much less also electronic form to have someone print out. There’s over-kill and there’s ..............
  7. You can do it at checkin. Usually no lines either
  8. I say cash account and then add them at check in. Seldom a line for that these days with the instant checkin if using cc. You can always add cc then too.
  9. I find the provided liquid just fine for my hair. But I never use conditioner and use the soap dispenser at the gym. I have straighter hair that doesn’t tangle and I don’t abuse it with perms, treatments, or hot irons anymore. I color it myself which actually makes it softer. Everyone differs
  10. Correct but—women’s swim suits do not have pockets and about 1% of cruisers carry a purse or fanny pack. I hate lanyards so carry my card on a wristlet coil. Very easy to use for the door or remove for purchases.
  11. Didn’t you just ask this question on Thurs and got answers? I’m a planner too but over planning every detail will drive you crazy and diminish the fun. Go with the flow a little and have a good cruise. The other 7 will thank you for it.
  12. After closer look, I am wondering if the price match you suggested would work. Carnival exc says “speedboat for 30 minute ride on the new river lagoon”. That does not sound like what I have heard it was previously or the site you posted. Maybe we will just go to Xuantunich if the river portion has changed for Lamanai. Anyone taken either of these excursions recently and can comment?
  13. Well that would be silly but Carnival rules or Carnival following federal law doesn’t matter. Some people just seem to think they are above it. I’m special, therefore............
  14. This thread is getting WAY off topic. You are not going to change Carnival’s rules about smoking on the ship.
  15. Thanks. Probably easier these days to move between tables as well with gratuities not having to be handed to “your” wait team on the last night. Can’t count on our TA for anything but maybe I can get the bride to push her a little.
  16. We have a group of 40 or so for a wedding and although the couple has late seating (with their 6 children) some guests have chosen YTD feeling we would all be at random location assigned tables at late seating. The groom has expressed thoughts that we may not all see each other all week if at different dinner times. My questions (I am not the planner but we have a TA) : If the cabins are linked I assume we will at least be seated with someone in our group but will the tables all be together? Might we be on different sides of the dining room anyway? If we are together, is it acceptable to change around to different tables each night as long as we only use our group tables? Could we end up with different waitstaff and how would they view that. Checking when we embark with all the cabin numbers probably will not happen as that is when the wedding takes place. On the Legend if that matters. We will opt for late dining IF we have a reasonable expectation of being together and able to “mingle” . Otherwise prefer YTD. Yes, I did ask this question before but it was an add-on to an old post and got few responses.
  17. Unless it is the thinly veiled reference/description of a psychopath.
  18. Not enough people dressed up? TeeHee
  19. I’m guessing the OP has a TA like mine. Booked via phone but had to ask specifically for her to send and invoice—to which she replied she was going to wait until all the group had booked to send them at once, a month or two later. When she did send it at my second request, it did not look like this—just cabin number, price, deposit, and dining time. I had already logged into my Carnival account to find the booking number.
  20. Exactly. Kids don’t ask for cabin upgrades or OBC to cover disappointment. After the initial disappointment they say, OK what else can I do instead and move on.
  21. Don’t get your hopes too high. The view is about what you get doing the ropes course, meaning you can look down on people walking or golfing below you. As for thrill — well, it’s pretty tame. Just something different to do once to say you have. That’s all. Cool but not thrilling.
  22. Disclosed. How? I have never seen a disclaimer on their website when booking that there are even big issues like propulsion problems on the ship so you may want to rethink booking several months from now. When researching your choice, you might have browsed this website for ten minutes and known about the problem. And why give a credit or good will? Have you ever gone to Disney parks and found every ride open. Not me. Try asking for a credit for that. And no one called you crazy. They just said in their Opinion, it would be crazy to book a cruise entirely based on a minor activity. You did now explain it was not based on that but it was the deciding factor. You don’t have to justify yourself, but when you come on here only to complain, you set yourself up for replies. Actually, the obstacle course next to the sky ride is more fun and lasts a lot longer. Hope your kids are old enough to enjoy that. At least go on it yourself as it is a blast. And I am 72 years old.
  23. It can even be a bottled water plastic bottle as long as you empty it.
  24. Good idea to calm down first and think about what would actually “make it right” for you. Expressing anger to the agents never gets anywhere. First, find out if your cabin reservations were linked in their system. Not just we made them at the same time and asked they be connecting, etc. IF they were not linked, they would have had no reason to assume you wanted to be next to them. If they have assigned you a new 3 person cabin and the next door cabins are reserved, they can’t just move one of them for you. But maybe there is some way they could incentivize them to change cabins. Or there may be another 3 person available that would work better. They just need to know what you are wanting. I can tell you are being reasonable and tell your husband to be “MN nice” when he talks to them——from a fellow Minnesotan with a short temper. Lol Too many come on here wanting things to be “made right” expecting that to be loads of OBC or free upgrades.
  25. Maybe your cruise insurance will cover the “cancelled transportation”. Such amazing sense of entitlement. Lawyer? Free excursions? Upgraded cabin-4 days before cruise no less. Did the letter say “we planned this weeks ago but waited to tell you to annoy you”? Anyone who plans a trip based on one MINOR point probably should not even consider cruising as so many things can happen to change plans.
