  1. Can't wait to hear more stories (true or made up)! LOL! I have been checking into cruisecritic every day to read your updates. You really do have a big fan club!
  2. So has anyone just bought the Ultimate Arcade pass and shared it with their spouse? I am assuming you can share it if you can swipe it three times every three minutes. Also wondering if you play games like foosball and air hockey, it surely includes both players as that is how most video gaming places operate. I am departing on the Norwegian Jewel in a few days and was wondering if their selection of games is smaller since the ship is smaller? For our 21 day cruise, it is showing $161 for the pass. If you could both use it, it would be well worth that price.
  3. I have booked three cruises with the Free at Sea promotions and been able to use my shareholder benefit on all three.
  4. Thanks for the information. I know at other cruise stops we have been able to use the beach at hotels if we purchase drinks but the loungers are typically only for the overnight guests. I may look into the day passes. Are they typically busier on cruise port days or should I just visit on one of my days that I am staying on Moorea?
  5. We will be staying on Moorea for 4 days after our cruise in March. I know the Hilton sells day passes with lunch included but I was wondering if you would be able to go there and buy a couple drinks at their bar and snorkel.
  6. Our cruise from Sydney to Papeete has already dropped $200 per person since final payment a month ago. We still have almost 90 days to go. I went ahead and did my one time upgrade (plus a small amount of $) last week from inside to oceanview because I wanted a certain area of the ship and those cabins are now sold out. Our cruise has actually dropped $600 per person since we booked it last summer. I think it depends how well the ship is selling. This one is a repositioning cruise so we fly into Sydney and out of Papeete which requires higher air fare for most. We used frequent flyer miles. You can go online and do a "dummy" booking and get an idea of how many cabins are available. They usually only show 15 cabins in each category but if they are starting to sell out, there will be less than 15 cabins. You can look at these cabins and see if they are ones you would want to be in. What is the itinerary and date that you are looking for?
  7. Norwegian has raised the price again. Our cruise is in February and the 3 meal package is $118.
  8. If you look under the research tab at the top of this page, then tap reviews there are several recent reviews there. You will have to tap ships and then find Carnival Sunshine. The reviews are either really good or really bad (some on the same sailing). We will be sailing on the Carnival Sunshine next week. I am getting excited!
  9. I ordered my cards on December 13th. The AARP site said they couldn't guarantee delivery by Christmas. I received them 4 days later.😊
  10. The last two winters we have taken 16 day cruises combined with land vacations and was gone a month. The time goes by fast! If you wasn't bored on the last five day cruise, I am sure you will enjoy the extra two days. The other plus to it is you will be able to explore some new ports!
  11. I am going on a Carnival cruise January 12, 2019 and it has been sold out for weeks.
  12. I have booked TBA three times. The first time I booked balcony guarantee on Carnival and got a balcony on the lido deck (exactly where I would have booked it). I was assigned my cabin about 30 days before the cruise. Last year, I booked a balcony guarantee on Norwegian. I was assigned a balcony cabin the very next day (about 60 days out) towards the aft of the ship. Very happy. I currently have a TBA ocean view booked for January. Still waiting to hear my assignment but probably won't hear until some time in December.
