  3. from my experience of having the specialty dinning on various ships: one key card is swiped at check in, this is usually to make sure you have a reservation and your party size then towards the end of meal, towards dessert the waiter/waitress will ASK for everyone card where they will process everyone order to the correct card. for those that have the dinning plan, your receipt at the end should say 0.00 cost and those that do not have the plan will have to pay whatever the total price is
  4. matt mitcham is the cruise director for the mardi gras, he should be on for the new years cruises
  5. i've been cruises were we backed in at nassau. it depends on the captain and the sometimes the port official
  6. You might of gotten lucky and your cruise/booking was still grandfather in when the booking 9+ months in advance gave you double points. this happen to me and it bumped me up a latitude level
  7. i am hoping it will be the magic too. i already cruise on the sunrise last year. i want to sail on a different ship
  8. I have a journey cruise booked for May. the pricing goes up and down like a normal cruise. depends on how well the sailing is selling out
  9. your excursion ticket should be used as a tender ticket the last time i tender to GSC a few years ago, you were able to book tender times via the app and on the touch screen tvs
  10. with your time dinning, the dinning room usually opens around 5:45/5:30. check the fun times for the exact time. make a reservation around that time and you should be fine. the best part with your time dinning, you always get a table for 2. if you do set time, you might be at a table with others
  11. i wonder how long it will take carnival to get rid of the plastic water bottles and use the cardboard cartons that NCL is starting to use now.
  12. it is a seasonal port that is only used a few times in the spring and fall months. the full schedule should be out soon. most likely when they release the nyc 2021 sailings they will include the norfolk sailings too
  13. I am hoping for either the Vista or the Magic. I do not see Carnival keeping the Sunrise in NYC for a 3rd year. They usually change the ships every few years
