    Anyone Ever Stayed In Cabins On Deck 4?

    We had one last year and we loved it. The only problem we had was people thinking we were trying to cut the line to get off the ship when we were trying to go to or from our cabin to or from public areas candi
  2. I was there in 2010. That was on of the best things we did on a 6 week long vacation Candi

    Babysitting Question on Carnival Pride

    For the convenience of our guests, Camp Ocean offer Night Owls for children 6 months to 11 years, allowing parents time to enjoy the nightlife without having to worry about their little ones. When? Night Owls is available each evening from 10:00pm-1:00am. Night Owls is not available during the hours that Camp Ocean is closed or during their scheduled activities, which typicallyrun from 10:00am-1:00pm, 2:00pm-5:00pm and 7:00pm-10:00pm. How much? $6.75 per hour plus a 18% gratuity, per child No discount for additional children Fees are due upon pick-up and paid via Sail & Sign Card directly to the Youth Staff on duty. Cash is not an acceptable form of payment. Any child left past 1:00am will be charged double (for the time period beyond 1:00am) and will forfeit Night Owls privileges for the remainder of the cruise, if the policy is abused. There is more information on the website. I did a search and found it easily. Unfortunately you can only use the service for your baby in that 3 hour period. Candi

    Soda For Breakfast

    When I was on the Star last March, the atrium bar was open early. I think 6:00 or 6:30 am. O'Sheehans was open but the bar wasn't open until 9:00. If you eat at O'Sheehans you can get soda. I did this a couple of times. Candi

    Alternatives to NCL?

    In regards to entertainment, you said you like the live music rather than the production shows. I find the I like Carnival for the Piano Bar and other live music. I like NCL because I can usually find some time of live entertainment somewhere. Hope you find what will work for you. Have a great time. Candi
  6. I got mimosa's the last morning and my friend go bloody mary's. They told me cut off time was 9:00 am. Candi

    When are cabin rooms assigned?

    I have booked guarantee cabins in the past, all but one time I had my cabin number before I sailed. The one I didn't have was given to me at the pier and they tagged the bags for me. Last time on Carnival, we got upgraded on the morning of sailing so I had to have the porter fix my tags. Candi

    Roll call

    Thank you Candi
  9. I started a roll call for my October 7, 2019 Jewel cruse on December 27, 2018. I just noticed someone created another roll call for the same sailing last Saturday. How do I get these merged together. I'm sure the other person didn't see my post, but to avoid confusion I would like them together. Thanks Candi

    Carnival vc NCL

    On Carnival you can pick early dining, late dining or anytime dining. If you have anytime dining, it's basically like NCL you go to the dining room that is assigned as anytime dining and they either seat you or give you a pager so they can let you know when your table is ready. I also read recently that you can reserve through the hub app and they will let you know when to come to the dining room. Candi

    You can go before your check in time if you are Platinum. It doesn't matter what your check in time is. Candi

    Carnival vc NCL

    I have sailed both. I have never seen Carnival offer the drink package as a promo. I usually sail with a friend and on NCL for two of us I believe it was around $2000.00 for an inside room with all the fees and taxes and gratuity for the drink package. I like Carnival, but most of the time you can't beat the price of NCL if you take advantage of the drink package promo. On Carnival we pay for the drink package and the only upside is that all beverages are included. Water, vitamin water, speciality coffees, soda and alcoholic beverages. You have a 15 drink limit per day on the alcohol, but unlimited on everything else. Food is subjective, but I will say I prefer the food on NCL. I always find something I like on Carnival, but feel NCL has better choices. I have been on 16 Carnival cruises and 2 NCL cruises with 2 more NCL cruises booked and 1 Carnival cruise booked. If you have other questions please let me know. Candi

    Best Airport to fly for Port of Los Angeles?

    I have a friend who flies down from San Francisco twice a year. He flies into Long Beach if it is economical. This March I told him to do LAX as it was a lot less money. In October we are flying to Vancouver for a cruise that ends in Los Angeles. He is looking at both LAX and Long Beach. I told him to pick the most inexpensive. If it's a few dollars more for Long Beach that is what he will do. Long Beach is so easy to get in and out of and not far from San Pedro hotels. Candi

    Return to Ship from Ports- 2 hours?

    That is usually at the port of embarkation. When you are in port they will tell you what time you need to be back on board. Candi
