  1. We always pack crackers for cheese on balcony before dinner. We also pack a gallon size zip lock bag to put some cheese from buffet in to put in the room fridge. Works great. Enjoy.
  2. We are booked too! Does anyone know if this is "Jersey" week in 2020? (ie: week in November where a lot of public schools in NJ and other states have a lot of days off?)
  3. We have room 10342 for Nov 7th cruise. Can you tell me our bed location. We actually prefer bed by bathroom unlike many others. Appears to be a good location especially since it was the same price as regular balc when we booked? Thanks for the video and all the hard work it took to pull it together.
  4. Yes, I was able to get it connected with a little effort and hand manipulation with the input ports on the hinged side. Actually, used my camera to see behind TV and see where ports where, then reached back and connected without having to move TV much at all. It took me a few minutes to find the right place without being able to actually see them. I have not heard of any metal bars being placed over the actual inputs. I have not been on Anthem since November, so it could have changed.... Maybe go to the "meet and greet" roll call board and ask someone on a soon to depart cruise to take a picture of the TV back, etc. to confirm?
  5. Anthem Nov18, Balc cabin 9160 with Sofa by balcony, port side. TV was on left when entering the room, bed on right. The connections were on the side where mounting bar was so not as much rooms as if it tilted the other way, but we were still able to connect cables with a little effort.
  6. Yes, you can access it. You need to bring a universal remote to change the input on the TV however. Worked like a charm.
  7. The parking garage is right next (almost attached) to the terminal. So, after dropping your husband of, you will have a very short walk to meet him. Have a great cruise.
  8. Correct. Does NOT have to be a parent or guardian. Relatives are A-OK. The age of the child is what determines how close the room needs to be to the relative.
  9. As long as you are dry and covered up, all is good.
  10. Suggest posting in the Florida Departure board as there are many suggestions, etc. there. Have a great trip.
  11. This does stink. If you still want to cruise, in 2 rooms, consider Carnival. Their policy would allow it given you are a relative. Just an option and may not cost you any additional money.
  12. Yes, if purchasing the deluxe package, both people, if over 21, must purchase. Some people have been able to purchase the refreshment package for one of the people based on medical reasons instead of the the deluxe package. Also, double ck cost, as most times the listed prices per day is before the automatic 18% gratuity, but UK/Canada website might be different. I do not believe if purchasing the refreshment package, both must purchase however....others will know about that.
  13. For us, spending close to $900 or an additional 45% on our cruise is just not worth it. I will save that and go on more cruises or take new excursions. To each his own...but I know I am a cheapskate.
  14. To add, the disembarkation process can begin at earliest 30 minutes after docking. This does not mean you will be off the ship, through customs and in a cab/transfer within 30 minutes of docking. Just didn't want to confuse you. Yes, Carnival has self-assist. You can line-up/wait in a designated area. Also, depending on day of week, Orlando can have LONG check-in and TSA lines.
