  1. That's great news, I think Mobile is our closest port, and we enjoyed our cruise on the Fantasy.
  2. Looks like you got the cruise off to a good start!! I can't wait for the rest of the review!
  3. It could be that Carnival does not have an agreement in place with the Port of Mobile for 2022.
  4. There is a garage right next to (or maybe part of) the port building, as well as a viable alternative garage (Fulton Street Garage). I really enjoy the sail away down the river, and New Orleans is fun pre-cruise, but in my experience, bring your patience for embarkation - it has been chaotic on both our cruises from New Orleans. Oddly enough, disembarking has been very smooth.
  5. We took the same cruise last year on the Eurodam and I discussed the constant upselling in the MDR a couple times with the Assistant Maitre D'. He said they are really pushed to upsell people on the specialty restaurants and the dishes with upcharges. We had open seating but managed to sit with the same 2 teams all the nights and enjoyed both of them. Maybe there were fewer people using open seating on our sailing, because we had a great time chatting with the servers at dinner.
  6. I second this idea. My Father-in-Law had one and it was much easier than dealing with filling tanks, etc.
  7. I would think the ships will be pretty different. We love the Fantasy class ships, but the Sunrise will have some newer features. That said, we thought the Triumph was crowded, and they added more cabins during the refitting that made it the Sunrise. I would choose the Sensation.
  8. I hope you're recuperating at the Alchemy Bar while writing this. I think I need a drink and I'm just reading about this excursion.
  9. We cruised on the Breeze and could not wait to go back to the Fantasy Class ships. You might be pleasantly surprised. You won't have the outdoor movies, but it will not be as crowded generally, and we feel like the crew have a more manageable workload, so the service is more personable and better. Or you might not care for the smaller ships, but Carnival gives you a choice, and I'm glad you're giving the smaller ships a try.
  10. My mother just cruised from Mobile and was unhappy with the taxi situation, so she took the Carnival shuttle to the airport when she went home. I don't think she set her Uber app up, so I can't comment on that.
  11. We prefer the Fantasy class ships. We've cruised on the Triumph and the Breeze (when it was the newest Carnival ship), but feel we get better service and get to know more of our fellow cruisers, as well as the crew, on the Fantasy class ships. They may not have all the bells and whistles of the bigger ships, but they work for us.
  12. Our least favorite Carnival ship was the Triumph. I would have been hesitant to book it again even before it was remade with more passengers and less public space. It was too crowded then, I can't imagine it now.
  13. That does not seem like very much time. Were you able to see everything you wanted to?
  14. Thanks for the review. It looks like you had an eventful trip!!
