  1. Thank you so much. This was my understanding as well, but I wanted to confirm. Again, my thanks!
  2. Like most of you, my September cruise was cancelled this morning however, this is my first cancellation. As expected, there's the future cruise credit plus $300 OBC (this was a five day). I am considering rebooking but wondered, if it were to happen with the next booking as well, would the on board credit be cumulative? If I rebooked the same itinerary for a later date....say December...and the December cruise was cancelled, would I have $300 on board credit or $600? I apologize if this has been discussed in other posts. I read for a while but didn't find the answer. Thanks so much for your patience with the question! Thanks! Michelle
  3. Here’s another strange thing...my husband and I had two different prices listed on the website for the same dates, same ship, same cabin, etc. We called Carnival and we were told that sometimes “specials” would be offered, but not the same things to everyone. I thought that was very odd.
  4. We were on Horizon in January and the SkyRide was open on the first day. We had the best luck avoiding a long wait when we went earlier in the mornings.
  5. Sounds like you're going to be sailing the week before me!
  6. Thanks again for doing this review. I’ll be on the Sunshine in one year. Kind of a long wait........
  7. I absolutely agree! Thanks so much for taking the time to do this review. I’m thoroughly enjoying it and I hate to see it end!
  8. Oh no!!! I can't wait to hear the rest of the story!
  9. Thanks for getting back with me about the Sky Ride and taking pictures. Maybe I can get someone close by to take a picture, as I have no way of mounting my cell phone on me. 🙂 That is interesting that they did the flaming Baked Alaska, instead of the candles. I remember seeing it done years ago, but not hear lately, only the candles. I'll tell you something else that was very interesting years ago that happened, where the ship started moving real bad with waves. I actually have a very good picture of me pouring champagne (this is just before the incident happened) in this TALL GLASS tower, made of champagne glasses. It really was a sight to see. 🙂 A few years later they had the champagne tower, but much shorter, and using plastic glasses. After doing it with the REAL glasses, and the tower being real high, it just didn't seem the same, but I did understand why they changed it, which made sense ----------- (I copied the body of your message and am pasting it manually.) I would have loved to seen the champagne glass tower! I have certainly never seen that before. The flaming Baked Alaska was surprising. There was an announcement saying they were bringing back a tradition and then the waiters walked out with the desserts. In the photos of the waiters, you can see one of them holding a Baked Alaska but you can't tell that it's on fire. I wish the photo had turned out better. I tried blowing it up but you still can't see the flames. There is actually a camera mounted on the Sky Ride. If you start the ride on the OUTSIDE track, it will take your picture just after starting out. There is a sign that tells you to "smile" so you know when the camera is coming.. If you want that photo, it is for sale (of course!). We didn't even attempt to find a way to take the cell phone, only the Go Pro.
  10. Thanks so much for the review and the awesome pictures! I just booked Sunshine for February of next year so I’m definitely following your report.
  11. Thanks so much for sticking with me to the end! Lol. Ron, my husband, took the Sky Ride pictures. He used a Go Pro and it had to be physically attached to him. They allowed him to use a wrist mount. They also allowed a shoulder or head mount. The same was true on the ropes course. They would absolutely not allowed traditional cameras or cell phones. Most of our pictures were taken on cell phones. yes, they were actually flaming this time. I can’t recall ever seeing anything but the candles before. It was impressive! i know what you mean about praying for health and protection from sickness! We always sail in the winter so I usually begin the extra vitamins, Airborne and lots of prayers about Thanksgiving. I’ll be looking forward to hearing about your March cruise!
  12. Would you feel comfortable putting your email address here?
  13. I had one more thought....if you’re like me and love a busy itinerary, our favorite itinerary is the Southern Caribbean out of Puerto Rico. The downside is that the ship, Fascination, is the sister ship to Sensation, which I know you said you didn’t like.
  14. We had an interior. I've done pretty much all types of cabins but I just don't spend much time in the cabin so I usually go with the interior. Also, I love how dark it gets in an interior so I can sleep well. We had no problems at all. We just returned on the 25th and I posted my review with lots of pictures and the Fun Times here on Cruise Critic if you might find that helpful. We did the six day itinerary.
