  1. You have to go to the “Rewards for good” part of the site. Then “Redeem”. The gift cards will be there.
  2. Both the $500 and $100 cards are currently available on the AARP site.
  3. I’ve been enjoying reading your STT review on your website, and I have to admit that although I love this forum, I am really enjoying the format of reading only your story as it relates to your trip. I certainly don’t mean any disrespect to this forum (heck, without it I would’ve never even found your awesome reviews), but it’s nice to read the review without everyone’s comments in between. Thanks for all of your fantastic reviews. I always look forward to reading them.
  4. Ugggg. This is the week of the year I would normally cruise too, but since I don’t usually book more than six months out, I didn’t have anything booked this time. I did, however, have to cancel a land vacation to Tampa which would’ve been for five days over last weekend. I’m ready for Covid to go bye-bye.
  5. Although I’m not friends with any shipboard staff, I do follow several of the entertainment staff on social media. Several of them have gotten jobs on land. Don’t know if it’s just temporary until they are called back by Carnival, or if they have no intention on returning to ship life. It’s so sad 😞
  6. So I just read on John Heald’s page that they indeed took the schedule down to redo it. I feared that they took it down bc they know more than they’re telling us regarding cruising resuming. I hope I’m wrong and that cruising does resume in August as they have told us. I think we all need a vacation after living through this.
  7. Does anyone have the link to the Carnival CD schedule? I have the link saved (airtable link) but when I click on it, I get a message that says the link is not available. It was there recently because I was looking at it. I wonder why they would remove it altogether.
  8. Well that’s a bunch of bu!!sh!t. What recourse do you have at this point? I think at least the author of this article should be notified that they are providing false information.
  9. Sid, this is a great distraction. I think you could rewrite the phone book and we’d read and enjoy it 😀
  10. Did you happen to get a picture of that? Would love to see it 😀
  11. Funny you should say that (remembering months later that you didn’t get any) because on my last cruise, there was no towel animal on the first night (this was on Carnival). I mentioned to the room steward that I missed the towel animal, he smiled and nodded.....and I had a towel animal every night after that 😀
  12. That is a great page. And you turned an otherwise crummy situation into a fun time (at least for us readers of the page) 😀
  13. Now that they are able to debark everyone, it’s like “get out of here NOW”. Honestly I’m surprised they didn’t start shooing everyone off earlier than that.
