  1. I drink water. I do bring my own mixers to put in a bottle of water.
  2. I will be on the same cruise. I'm booking flights through Carnival. That way if the cruise is cancelled, they have to cover flights, too.
  3. Try a cruise out of New Orleans! So much fun watching those big ships turn around in the Mississippi River!
  4. Once we scheduled for a cruise and did not have the choice of early dining because Plats and Diams had taken them all. No FTTF either. So, we took YTD. It was okay. But much prefer 6pm.
  5. I've found food pretty consistent. Only place service was inconsistent was in MDR. That depends on training and time of service. I've been on small and large ships. If you have new staff still training, they can get orders mixed up--or you might get cold food. That happened to me once. I sent it back and was brought a hot plate by a head waiter who apologized. If a crew is nearing end of contract, they do move a little more slowly--but they are exhausted. I try to cut them slack. They work hard and ridiculous hours. I try to tip well. I'm in a service field myself. I know what it is like to work long hours for little appreciation.
  6. It's SWAG. Like when you go to a convention and vendors give out SWAG. Sometimes SWAG is cool (one vendor gave out crazy socks this year). Sometimes SWAG sucks (I've got way too many crappy ink pens). Take the good SWAG. Donate the crappy SWAG. (Need to bring those ink pens to Goodwill).
  7. I admit to being a beer snob. I don't drink American domestics. I'm really spoiled here in New Orleans with the variety from our local breweries, all of which are carried in local markets. I did see Abita Amber last year on the Carnival Triumph (out of the Port of New Orleans and before her makeover). I'm really looking forward to tasting the new Carnival brews next month on the Carnival Glory.
  8. Just read the article. He was found by the pool. He was probably up on the Panorama deck or Jogging Track and fell to the Lido deck.
  9. Got a "guaranteed" upgrade only once. We get to the cabin, which was an Oceanview (we originally booked inside cabin), and it had all this swag for Carnival Players Club. I guess someone in the club cancelled last minute. But, great swag! And FTTF debarkation was thrown in!
  10. November cruise coming up on the Carnival Glory: -New BBQ on second story of Red Sail (Panorama Deck). -Lobster Roll from Seafood Shaq -Night snuggling on Serenity Deck -Waterslides! -Afternoon Tea -Spiked coffee -New Carnival Brewery Beers -Behind the Fun Tour (never before on this ship) I'm a regular at the Alchemy Bar and always trying new foods at the MDR. Have done Steakhouse and Behind the Fun before on other ships.
  11. I always have extra Mardi Gras beads. I put those on the door or mail box.
