  1. If you enjoy standing in lines and being packed into smaller spaces - then the Horizen is for you. I would, however, prefer the Breeze. or any other Dream class (or Spirit or even Conquest class) over the Vista or Horizen.
  2. Or make the elevators only available for people with bonafide handicap parking registration.
  3. I know a lot of you will disagree, but I would like them to get rid of the new cakes for lunch. The icing is like Crisco or lard and they are devoid of flavor. Maybe keep two or three cake choices, but on my last Journeys cruise (14 day) that was virtually all they had for dessert. I really missed Key Lime pie, and other old items. I think the way Holland does the buffet was great. They served you your food, made you a salad, brought drinks to your table, etc.
  4. I would think that the Fantasy class ships would have a great amount of appeal to those (such as myself) who want to avoid crowded huge ships or ships that have been refitted to cram in moe people. Even before the COVID-19 issue, I was through with ships such as Sunshine and Vista.
  5. Maybe, but prices are not determined as much by company coast but by supply and demand. If you have basically the same number of cabins (supply) and demand falls (which it surely will), then prices might actually drop.
  6. We are scheduled for June 11 a TA cruise. Really doubt if we will make it.
  7. We noticed the same thing on a Journeys cruise on the Breeze. Due to a ridiculously long time to eat in the MDR, we spent the next 12 nights eating on the Lido deck. There was always a line for the buffett, deli, pizza BUT never for the seafood. We did not eat tere once - and we really like seafood. There was just too much for free to justify spending money on that.
  8. We were on the Miracle back in May. Four cabins. We (Diamond) were on board around 11:20. One cabin of friends (FTTF) were on about 11:30. Our final group of friends (Zone 6) were on at 11:35. They were NOT, however, letting people in who had later check-in times.
  9. I am. I foolishly booked a transatlantic (which is filled with sea days) on this ship in June. I actually thought it was a new ship when I booked it. I am not looking forward to being crowded together with less space for 13 days. I swore I would never sail the Sunshine again, but I am hoping that they will learn from their mistakes on the Sunshine and Sunrise.
  10. The coffee shop closes early - about 9, and does not open again until later in the afternoon - so get your caffeine fix early.
  11. Maybe she is positive that she hates the new ship.
  12. I like the chess set - I play my grandson on it all of the time. The baseball hats were nice too. Last is Lanyard
  13. I hope that you are wrong about the Rasiance! I booked a transatlantic for next June and I do not think I could take 13 days of crowding and lines like that. Am seriously thinking of cancelling.
  14. Hopefully they will realize some of these shortcomings by the time they build the Radience. I went on the Sunshine and decided NEVER AGAIN. It seemed like Carnival wanted their guests to wait in lines. We love the comedy shows, but had to skip most because all f the seats were taken. We could not find private spaces to sit and talk, and Lido lines were terrible. After reading about the Sunrise, it seems as if they did not learn. Hope the Radience is better.
  15. There really is not much difference if they have an early check-in time. On our last cruise (we are diamond) we went with two other groups - one with an earl check-in time and another with FTTF. We boarded after a wedding party and went to our rooms first. We all had agreed to meet by the Pizza Pirate as soon as we got on. After dropping off our stuff, we went to the meeting place and both other groups were already there. The FTTF people got on about 1 minute before the other group. The new boarding system is so much more efficient!
