  1. With the exception of a couple options on the Pano, Carnivals food is a joke. The Pano buffet was barely anything to write home about. Okay, what...a burger place, some bad mexican food. Same MDR menu for ages. I wasn't hard to see Royals options on Anthem blows away anything Carnival offers. Oh wait, you can get a tired lobster roll for $20+ as well on Carnival. I am sure Emril's tired cajun cuisine and Shaqs chicken will both be hits with the fat masses.
  2. I don't know if the Panorama would be considered a "big" ship. Was on it and it felt the opposite...cramped. We've never had that issue with other ships, Carnival or otherwise. I did see Ben and David's video on the Anthem of the Seas and just the buffet alone looks amazing.
  3. CA resident and San Diego native. Nope, there will be no more lockdowns. The state governor is facing a recall and he will not dare do that again. He's said as much. Right now there are throwing thousands of dollars at getting people vaxd. Litterally throwing money at them. I heard yesterday that shop owners could give out coupons for getting vax'd. They get $200 and the vax'd person gets $50.
  4. In this video of the Oasis of the Seas, you can see what looks to be a single Concept2 rower. It comes into frame at around :29 seconds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aC6XUtqSMi4 In this video of Anthem, you can see a Concept2 rower at the 2:42 mark but it looks like an older model... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc1B0omI-A0 Regarding linking to your performance monitor...like a Strava unit? Not sure if the models on board, if they are older, would support it.
  5. The parking "woes" have increased since the addition of the Panorama. Previously it was just two smaller class Fantasy ships and parking was never a problem. Granted those two ships are gone but now the larger Miracle will be there in addition to the Pano. If the lot is full, the attendants will direct you to an offsite parking lot in downtown LB and there a shuttle will bring you back and forth. But yeah, good question about the parking expansion. It was supposed to happen years ago.
  6. Yes! The wife and I enjoyed taking the Inspiration and Imagination from Long Beach every month or so for their 3 or 4 day cruises. These were older Fantasy class ships and you're right, after dinner the casino bar on those ships were always packed. They generally had the house band playing right there as well.
  7. Yeah, the removal of the bar seems to be universally panned. I can't believe a bar did worse money making-wise than a few slot machines.
  8. "Passengers told Insider that they cruise to disconnect and get off of their phones. For some, it was frustrating to have to rely on an app for their vacation." This is what bums me the most. I am COMPLETELY absent minded and would probably lose my head if it weren't attached to my body. Add in Cheers and I can fully anticipate leaving my phone on the pool deck, at the buffet, at the gym. I dunno, maybe I would do better with a small tablet or something. I am in IT and I cruise to get AWAY from technology! But not a bad article. You really don't see positive
  9. Right. My wife and I enjoy latte's with vodka or rum in them.
  10. I guess there are still things to do for the kiddos but I saw a youtube review of a recent sailing and they stated the kids club is closed. Not sure if that is still the case but I would want that open before I take my kids on a cruise.
  11. That's some hyperbole there! Cruises have already had multiple Covid positive tests. They are quarantined and let off at the next stop.
  12. I can see both sides and will be popping the popcorn in anticipation of both sides on here debating. I am in CA and I have to believe the NCL cruise here in Nov will require to be vax'd but who knows. I hindsight, I am surprised Disney never balked at the FL law and yet has been doing fine without asking.
  13. Sure, that was more than likely their perception. But now aren't the lines allowed to increase by 20-30% every 30 days" Would seem next month the capacity will almost assuredly be increasing.
  14. For those of your on these early cruises....what capacity are they running at? Some are saying Carnival is going at 100%
