  1. We went to Cagneys for the first time on the Getaway in 2015. It became one of my favorite meals. I then had Cagneys again on Getaway in 2016 and it was good but not as amazing as the first time. My third time was on my honeymoon last December on the Jade (Dec 14 on a 10 night so not sold out and not busy). They COMPLETELY messed up our meal. Brought the wrong steak for my husband and brought my steak well done when I ordered Medium Rare. The sides came out well after I had finished my steak. I was just on the SUN a few weeks ago and went to Cagneys. It was awful. My steak came out medium well but cold. Again I ordered it medium rare. I chalked it up to being a 3 nighter where the quality may not be the same. I do have it booked again for this December on Escape.......fingers crossed it is somewhat better. I don't know if the Free At Sea has made the difference in lackluster quality and service.......
  2. I have cruised several times in 8738 on Getaway as well as once in 8712. I have 8738 booked on Escape, Breakaway and Encore. There is not much difference in balcony size actually because 8738 is a secret large balcony. However the bridge is not far from you. 8712 you do not see straight down into the water if that is of concern to you. There is about a 1.5 ft metal deck.
  3. Some of my favorite cabins have been the BX category on the Away ships 🙂
  4. It was the most amazing day and setting. I think our resort total was like $2500 and that was for champagne toast, rum punch, wedding cake for 35, 1 changing room, archway, speaker and use of resort. Here is the link to our photos - if you contact Bohio please let them know Shanny & Sean referred you. https://www.facebook.com/pg/beyondtheseewarrick/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1944829015822092
  5. I went to pay for my social media package today for my sailing next week and noticed at check out it went from $4 a day to $6.80. Did I miss an announcement or do you think it is a website glitch? Looks like the other packages went down in price.
  6. Does anyone have a recommendation for a Booze Cruise in Nassau?
  7. We are cruising Conquest Nov 18 and formal night 2 is definitely on Thanksgiving. They will do the traditional Thanksgiving menu as well as the "fancy" menu.
  8. As long as you have a receipt confirmation of booking, you will have a room. On my first Carnival cruise, I booked at GTY and did not get the assignment until the day before.
  9. I just gave up 6 slots for our upcoming Conquest cruise, so do not be discouraged.....you may still get in!
  10. I am sailing with a group of 50 for our wedding on the Conquest. I have extreme claustrophobia and abhor muster drills. Can someone tell me where Station C is?

  12. I am cruising with 50 people for our wedding in November. The dining is all linked for our group. Does anyone know what the table sizes are on Conquest? Trying to figure out if I should link specific cabins together for table seating?
  13. First of all I want to thank everyone who posts fun times and information for those of us planners. I am getting married on the Conquest Nov 21 of this year on a 6 day Eastern going to Nassau, HMC, Grand Turk and Amber Cove. It is Thanksgiving week and I am sure will be a sold out sailing. We are cruising with 50 people total, many who are newbies. Does anyone know which nights are Chef Table? I have seen the very recent Fun Times and no mention of the Chef's Table anywhere. With a huge group, I have lots of things planned and wanted to make sure it is not going to conflict. We have a reservation for 14 but no idea what night. We are all in early seating MDR, group cruisers - do they normally put you all in the same general dining area? Anything we should not miss while on Conquest or in any of the above ports? I am putting together an itinerary for our guests but would love to give them some other options should they not want to partake in the activities planned. Thanks all in advance
