  1. We interpret the OP differently. They said they checked the ratings on many hotels. The ratings said the (many) hotel(s) had the problem, so yes, I added the s to hotel to clarify for those who interpreted as you did. Obviously they would not pose the question here if they had only checked the rating on one hotel.
  2. Not just one hotel. Many hotels’ ratings points to a pattern.
  3. Is it "standard industry practice" to pre-pay gratuities? (I don't think so-just an option) Or is it "standard industry practice" to tip for unsatisfactory service? Or to tip prior to service?
  4. Only the dedicated will find it. Persistence
  5. Well, when you know where it is, yup, there it is. No cursor on my IPad. Lol Thanks all.
  6. Those are where I have been looking. So is it the unnamed bar in the casino area?
  7. Where is the Alchemy Bar on the Legend and what is a good location to find updated deck plans?
  8. Could, not would, but rarely a nightmare. Inconvenience, delay, PITA maybe. What can be done ”no big deal” for a few people is not the same as 900 at once. Simply finding air reservations for 900 people would have been problematic.
  9. You need to call back and request a PVP to straighten this out. I know that if things are new to us, we sometimes don’t ask the right questions or hang up the phone too soon, thinking we have the only answer. And the rep very likely did give you incorrect info. But you should be able to explain that and get this cruise rebooked with the FCC. Good Luck Then start reading the Carnival threads as many things are different between the cruise lines.
  10. It is a listed side effect, common or otherwise. Irrelevant if it happens to you.
  11. Doesn’t have to be common for it to happen to people. There are many drugs which list possible side effects to be exactly what the drug is designed to prevent. Everyone is different and I will listen to my pharmacist over any RN.
  12. 4J would be comparable to 4B as they are both interiors but the question was if they could move you from cat 6 to cat 4 and those are not comparable even in the cruise lines eyes. They won’t move you from a balcony to an inside for instance. They can move you within a category or up a category but not down. ——Although maybe they could-they won’t.
  13. I’ll never get $1800 OBC for a cruise since that is all I usually pay for the entire cruise. See these ads for online TAs offering “up to $1000 OBC”. That is if the cruise costs over $10,000 before port fees and taxes. You have to spend a lot to get much.
  14. Thing is, assisted living pays for a lot more than you would get on a ship. Consider a retirement home at a lesser cost but unless you were willing to live on the ship full time, you would still need to pay to keep your retirement home room available. You don’t just sign up for those part time. Usually a waiting list.
  15. Not only more convenient but sometimes wiser to manage your own payments and reservations (spa, excursions, etc). IF you would need to cancel, refunds will come back to you directly.
  16. When do you get the immunization and when do you get sick? Might be your timing of too soon or too late. Or you’re just going to get it.
  17. Recommended by end of Oct. That’s over a month away and yes, immunity does wane by the peak of the season which is mid Dec through March. Newer versions of the vaccine are exactly why you should not rush to get the first available immunization. You don’t keep getting multiple shots as they are developed. Children who need two doses should of course begin early enough. The older the person, usually the less immunity they develop from the immunization thus you will want the peak to coincide with the peak flu season. Get mine early Nov and have never had the flu. I also work at a famous medical institution which recommends waiting. Yes, there are areas of the world where the season starts earlier or later and you should be cognizant of that when traveling. Also not all sneezing and coughing is “the flu”. There are many other respiratory illnesses.
  18. If you have My choice, it will automatically alert you of any shipment on the way if you set up alerts in your account. Ask it to alert you when anything is shipped and again when there is delivery info.
  19. Way too early for a flu shot—unless you are going to be away for more than a month. People are in a rush to get their shots too early and have little protection when the flu season actually strikes in force
  20. Financially only. Four adults in a connecting cabin or under the pool deck—no thanks
  21. WOW again! Solo seems best for you so why have tablemates? The subject of solo sailing has never come up with me and I spend lots of time around the ship without a companion. Well, there was the one time a guy 20 years my junior asking if I was alone but I’m pretty sure he wasn’t about to warn me of dangers. Told him I wasn’t alone and we had a nice chat at the bar.
