  1. Just booked my first Carnival cruise after 10 cruises and two NCL's already booked. Wasn't even that cheap but still $1000 less than NCL, Princess and Royal Caribbean.
  2. Just booked my first Carnival cruise today. I saw on the Carnival website that you can apply for a Carnival credit card and if you spend $500 in the first 90 days they will credit you with fun points for $250. If I put this $500 toward this cruise do I get a statement credit of $250 or is this for another cruise to be booked?
  3. Can anyone tell me how you see a place holder? Do you have to go through all your e-docs? We have a cruise booked for Jan. 2021 which we booked in Oct. 2019. Or is it too early?
  4. I have only sailed on Golden, Grand and Crown and had a balcony on Caribe which I know is bigger. Are there any larger balconies on the Royal Princess? If not, which deck is best?
  5. Thanks for this. We will be on the 21 day Bliss Panama Canal in April and sort of felt we were being cheated with so many less ports than your Gem sailing. Nice to know at least one port we will miss is not that great. One consolation is we have another cruise booked on the Getaway in January 2021 that goes to the ABC islands. When we were on the Gem in 2015 we also didn't like the Chinese restaurant but tried it again on the Jade and the Pearl and was pleasantly surprised how much we liked it, being total New York/New Jersey lifelong residents who were raised on Chinese food in Brooklyn.
  6. Here in the USA the prices are still the same under the 30% off "sale". I'm definitely considering a cruise with another cruiseline.
  7. While we are on the subject of passport renewal, my advice is don't try to DIY by taking your own photos. Our passports will expire 7/31/20 so are in the process of renewing them for our 4/19/20 Panama Canal cruise. My DH, who is a little frugle, has been trying to get the photos exactly right but somehow they are coming out too dark, having shadows, paper looking yellow, size not perfect. It takes 6-8 weeks to renew and if they reject your photos you may have to wait another 6-8 weeks after retaking them. Go to CVS, Walgreens or your public library for perfect photos.
  8. I made reservations in the MDR for the first 3 nights on our 21 day Panama Canal cruise in April, just to see how it goes.
  9. Both the Carnival website and on line TA's say today's last day for $99pp deposits. Is this usually extended? Does Carnival ever offer OBC? Are there fare sales in January-February?
  10. Both cruises go to Half Moon Cay. One goes to Nassau and the other goes to Grand Turk.
  11. Looking at Carnival Sunrise out of NY for Sept. 2020. One goes to Bermuda and Bahamas. The other goes to Bermuda and Grand Turk. Which one would you pick?
