  1. My feelings exactly....first cruise with the entire family (10 of us) in May and spent over 10,000, which is a lot of money for us. It was everyone’s Xmas present. We are hoping Carnival makes the decision to offer a cruise credit, which we are fine with, and we don’t lose that money. We having been cruising with Carnival over 15 yrs, twice a year and if this ends bad we will be done. I’m so sad for my kids and grandkids about this 🥺
  2. Perfect! Thanks! I don’t know why I couldn’t find that.
  3. Taking the whole family on Pride in May. My 2 young grandsons drink a lot of milk. Can my daughter and SIL take 2 12 packs of Horizon boxed milk instead of soda? I know they have milk on the ship but more than once I’ve poured spoiled milk on my morning oatmeal 🤮
  4. I too would like an update on Taino Beach? We are going in May. How far from cruise port? Kid friendly? Food?
  5. Anyone know if Ken will be back from vaca by May 3rd on Pride. He’s amazing in the MDR! Awesome voice 😊
  6. How do we know if our cruise will have an 80’s party or white night? Some cruises we are on do, some do not? Taking the adult kids and grandkids on Pride in May and they would love to bring outfits along for these parties but it’s a waste of precious packing space if they don’t have.
  7. I had no idea. I always make homemade cookies to snack on in the plane then I throw them in my carryon and take on ship. 26 cruises and never questioned 🤷‍♀️
  8. Grand Lucayan Radissan or Taino Beach with grandchildren (ages 1, 4, 6 and 10) + the grandkids parents so 10 of us. We are looking for beach fun to tire the kids out 🙂 only in port (on Carnival Pride) from 8:00 to 1:00 but we will be ready to get off and let the kids enjoy the water. It sounds like both are about a 20 minute shuttle ride. Any thoughts?
  9. I have used a TA for 15 years and never received any perks....no onboard credit, nothing ever waiting in the room, no urgency when I make special requests. I'm jealous of all you ppl that have great TA's. I have switched to just booking directly on Carnivals website. It's so easy and I can pick my room and my dining time.
  10. Did they refurb the rooms or are they still the Carnival peach? We go in May. I love the ships with the updated rooms. Even paradise was updated when I went to Cuba in April 😃
  11. I have read MANY posts on the "best" beach in Barbados and have come to the conclusion everyone likes something different. And one person's best beach may not be the next person's 🙂 So I have decided on Brandon's Beach for me and hubby. Anyone know if you need to make reservations ahead of time or you can just show up? Our ship gets in at 8:00 so we will be fairly early.
  12. Wow...thanks! As many cruises as I have been on and I never knew that. Worked great and I found out what I needed:)
  13. Anyway I can tell how many can be in a room without having to call my TA. We have 3 oceanview rooms booked with kids/grandkids and I would like to move 1 grandkid to a room that has 2 in it. I need to know if that room has a trundle or bunkbed to make that possible. Thought maybe a site somewhere would show that??
  14. Just a side note: This is a completely paid cruise for all the kids and grandkids. The only cost they will have is the balance of the sail and sign card. And yes, all of my kids, and maybe even more so the grandkids, have been begging us to take a family cruise. I didn't want the BF to feel left out cause I really do like him......I just wish he would have felt comfortable telling ME and not my daughter since she feels like she's in the middle now. My 10 YO grandaughter will be over the moon though since she will get to room with her fav Aunt!
  15. Thanks everyone for your responses....I'm starting to feel better. I also CANNOT for the life of me figure out why anyone would not want to go on a free cruise. Who would be on the fence over this???? The "surprise" is at Christmas(and no, I will not do this way again) and the cruise is not till next May 2020. We are on Pride out of Baltimore so we can all drive to the port. AND we are going to 1/2 moon AND I rented 2 cabanas. Sigh...these kids don't deserve this.....me, hubby and Alchemy from now on
