  1. I am going to echo what everyone else said. Cancel the expensive Carnival transfer, and grab an Uber or Lyft. It's much cheaper, and quicker.
  2. Keep the cabinet door open that the fridge is in, and it'll stay very cold. If you keep the cabinet door closed, the same hot air recirculates and the motor cannot get cool. If you allow cooler/fresh air to circulate, then it gets cold.
  3. Before January 11th you'll have Mat Seguin as the CD and Gustavo in the piano bar. After January 11th you'll have Dave "Davey Wild" Wassertrom in the piano bar and Kyndall Fire as the CD.
  4. I'd get a villa, rather than a cabana. I love the villas. That way if it's the forecast you keep imagining or just cool all-together, you can sit in your villa, relax in the hot tub while looking at the tropical views.
  5. That's correct. I think this all transpired starting about 2-3 years ago, but could be wrong on that.
  6. That's correct. The "welcome home" offer is up to 20% of ES rates, 50% deposits, up to $50 OBC or $100 OBC on a suite.
  7. Yes, there have always been kids in our groups. Minimum age is 8.
  8. We always do YTD and have seen plenty of tables with much larger than 9 people. In fact we sometimes have some friends of ours join us for dinner making us an 8 top with no issue. You just show up together at dinner and all sit together. Just like any land based restaurant.
  9. Faster to the Fun is not offered on Carnival Journeys departures, cruises in Europe, nor on cruises from the following home ports: Honolulu, Norfolk, Vancouver, San Diego and San Francisco. It will be offered on the Carnival Panorama, starting with departures in February 2020, Carnival Radiance, starting with departures in January 2021 and Mardi Gras, starting in 2021 (date to be determined). https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1374/~/faster-to-the-fun-(fttf)
  10. Ditto, we always get FTTF with a suite. I like my cabin being ready when I embark to drop our sodas, wine and luggage off rather than lug it around until 1:30. Then of course that line at guest services...
  11. Definitely. Be sure to get to the airport early and also get to the port city the day before your cruise. But I agree, Cookie is amazing. He was actually trained by Ben Lambert. Ben trains a lot of the cruise directors from what I've heard.
  12. David is amazing. We do private tours with him and absolutely have a blast!
  13. $95 per person. It's fun and worth it.
