  1. We are scheduled to sail aboard the Horizon on October 3rd from Miami. 124 days from today. We hope! Our son and his fiance are scheduled to sail on the Magic that same day. We're all staying at the same hotel the night before our cruises. God willing and the creek don't rise, we'll be there ready to set sail.
  2. What I do is to go to Guest Services and ask to see what the menus will be for the week. Then I look them over and see what meal that we don't particularly like. Then that will be the night we go to the steakhouse. You can make reservations after boarding the ship. This has always worked for us.
  3. Thanks for all of the inputs that you all offered. I made reservations with SAS for transport. $15 pp
  4. My wife and I will need transport from Port of Miami to the airport in Ft. Lauderdale, and I need some recommendations. Which transport service is best or recommended? We will have plenty of time to get to the airport. Just need dependable means of getting there. Thank you for your input.
  5. My wife and I will be needing transport from the Port of Miami (Carnival Horizon) to the Fort Lauderdale Airport on October 3rd. Any recommendations on which transportation service to use? Jiffy Jeff will not do one-way transport, so they're not available. Thank you for your input!
  6. When my wife retired, we took a 15-day cruise out of San Diego to Hawaii and back aboard the Carnival Spirit. It was, by far, the best cruise that we've taken so far. We spent 2 days in SD prior to the cruise and loved this wonderful city. So many things to see and do, plus the best people we've ever met! This was the last cruise that Carnival sailed from here. I sure hope that they will return someday. The cruise was 4 days at sea, 7 days touring the Hawaiian islands and then 4 days at sea again. It was fantastic! I even surprised my wife with renewing our wedding vows on a beach on Oahu. She was totally surprised! Complete with a Hawaiian marriage license. The cruise did have a couple of incidents that we weren't expecting. On the 3rd day at sea, a young man decided to jump overboard in broad daylight. The ship turned around and was able to locate, and rescue, the guy. He survived and was taken ashore in Hilo. Then after leaving the islands and heading home, we had to turn around and head to Honolulu to drop off an ill passenger. Other than these two incidents, the cruise was absolutely fantastic! We met some really great people and played lots of LRC games during the 15 days.
  7. My wife and I will be celebrating our 45th anniversary aboard the Carnival Horizon October 3rd sailing. We are looking so forward to sailing again, our 22nd cruise with Carnival.
  8. My passport renewal application was received on March 2. I have not received my new passport yet. It shows "Being Processed" on their website. Maybe with more and more offices opening up, they will send it to me before my October 3rd cruise. Heck, I can't even renew my license plate on my car, as the County Clerk's office is still closed.
  9. I miss the West Indian Pumpkin soup. OMG...that was so good! And I can't stand to eat pumpkin anything! I miss the grilled chicken and steak sandwiches they used to cook on the Lido Deck. The Caesar salads are the best! And my all-time favorite is the Grand Marnier Souflee! At least 2 or 3 when having them. And I will be celebrating 20 years as a member of Cruise Critic next month!
  10. Hopefully...Oct 3rd on Horizon. Our son and his fiance sail on the Magic the same day. We're all staying at the Crown Plaza in Miami the night before our cruises.
  11. We are scheduled to fly into Fort Lauderdale on Oct 2nd, but we are staying at the Crown Plaza in Miami. The airfare was over $190 per person difference. What is the best and economical way to get to MIA airport from FLL airport? The hotel has free shuttle from MIA. Thanks for your input!
  12. We're scheduled to sail on Horizon on Oct 3rd. I'm seeing nothing available on this cruise. Every cabin shows sold out. I just wonder how my cruise might be affected? We've got 2 more payments to go to be paid in full. I booked it a year ago.
  13. My wife and I have sailed on 20 different Carnival ships, and 3 RCL ships. Horizon is up next for us on Oct 3rd.

  15. Announcement made this morning says that all Carnival cruises have been canceled until Aug 1st. Then only 8 ships will be sailing. https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/update-carnival-cruise-line-service-pause-extension Aug 1st: Galveston: Carnival Dream, Freedom and Vista Miami: Carnival Horizon, Magic and Sensation Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Elation Not the news that we wanted to hear! I have a feeling that there will be more cancellations in the future.
