  1. I know this post has been up for a while, but I've been looking at these 2 ships as well. I've been to Alaska on the Eurodam once, and it was amazing. I may book that again. The Emerald Princess is quite a bit bigger, I think about a 1000 more people. I don't think every trip on the Emerald Princess gets to cruise Glacier Bay, which was a highlight on our previous trip. We were not that in to the entertainment on the Eurodam, but the trip is port intensive, and we struggled with the time change so we didn't stay up too late. The roof was closed over the pool on the Eurodam, but I didn't see to
  2. On another travel site, the 11/14 and 11/28 cruises are listed as "Sold Out". I'm not sure about the others.
  3. The only real "happy hour" I've encountered on a Carnival ship, is an occasional one in the Red Frog Pub. They had half price drinks on embarkation day and I think one other time during our cruise on the Legend. I hope that I'm wrong and Carnival has some provision for the ships that don'r have the Red Frog Pub.
  4. Looks like you got off to a good start! The view from Animal Kingdom looks awesome!
  5. They seemed to have plenty on our recent trip on the Legend. I would not worry, maybe they were just short on that particular trip.
  6. I didn’t even think of calling the Hotel Director directly. I guess you can always learn something. I know they can’t do anything for me, but I still feel like I was never heard on board.
  7. The poster did go to Guest Services. How much of a cruise should anyone give up waiting in line there? We went 2x and spoke to our steward about an issue on a recent cruise. After that, I gave up. I did not pay with the goal of standing in line at Guest Services. I made my feelings clear in the survey, but I will write Carnival If I don't hear back soon.
  8. The décor is artistic, not pin-up. The ship was very easy to get around, and the public spaces seemed well laid out. I rarely felt crowded. We were forward on Deck 4 and felt that everywhere we wanted to go was easily accessible via the stairs or a nearby elevator.
  9. You can do San Gervasio on your own, if you don't want to take a tour. We like visiting ruins and had a taxi driver take us, prices are on the taxi stands. The driver waits and brings you back. It's a lot of walking and the ruins are not as spectacular as other sights. You can purchase the services of a guide, but we just used the provided maps. We've visited Paradise Beach a couple times as well, it's fun. If you dock right downtown, the people watching is usually good.
  10. We just did this tour and had a great time. They take you out right from the property. We went a little past the Fantasy Island resort and then entered the water with the guide. I'm not an experienced snorkeler, a decent swimmer. The guide, Alex set an easy pace and pointed out lots of sights to us. We saw blue tang, a barracuda, sergeant fish, and many more. I would guess that we were in the water for 45 minutes or so, but I'm really not sure The boat (captained by Daniel) was never very far away either. The people at the Hangout were all very nice, it was our favorite excursion on that cruis
  11. We're just back from a visit to Roatan and went to Daniel Johnson's. I can't say enough good things about our visit there. We saw the sloths and monkeys and then went snorkeling. We were cold and wet, it was raining like crazy and cool for them, so we just went back to the ship, but the driver would have taken us wherever we wished. Everyone there was very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
  12. We just got back from a cruise that stopped at Roatan. I would definitely contact Daniel Johnson’s monkey and sloth hangout. We had a great time there and they offer beach time and snorkeling in addition to the monkeys and sloths. Everyone involved was very friendly and we saw them interact with small children. Daniel and his team made sure we had a great day! https://monkeyandslothhangout.com/home/
  13. On at least one of the Cruise Elegant nights there is usually an opportunity to meet the Captain somewhere on the ship for a photo and a quick word.
