  1. Grandmanurse you and I may be sisters from another mister! Both lightweight drinkers and lovers of bread!!!
  2. LOL- yup that's me! I'm a happy drunk on one drink, then it's time for bed!
  3. I've experienced weak drinks a few times, when I've ordered the slushy type drinks that tend to be made in bulk... on our last cruise I ordered a pina colada from the atrium bar, and DH & I sat there drinking our drinks. I asked the bartender a few sips in if he had even put any rum in it and he kind of laughed and said, hey- maybe I forgot! He took it back and remade it. OH MY LORD I almost lived to regret that decision! The pina colada that I got back was almost clear, other than the crushed ice, there was so much rum in it! I am a lightweight in the drinking department, so that one drink did me the whole night! In fact, the same bartender came back when I was halfway done and topped it up with more of the fruit juice and it still tasted strong!
  4. My countdown clock was visible in my posts yesterday... and I've seen all the other changes that were made in that last update a few months ago, so this doesn't seem right.
  5. Since when? Mine was working up until yesterday...
  6. The Spa on Magic... we had a spa balcony and it was really convenient and so relaxing!
  7. Can someone from the CC Admin team help me with a question? Our cruise, Carnival Vista, June 15, 2019 has reached 26- almost 2 weeks ago... how soon should we expect an email confirming that we've reached the requisite number and that a M&G is definitely going to be planned?
  8. I used my hotel card key from the hotel I stayed in the night before the cruise... our room steward used a folded business card all the time the cruise before that.
  9. If you're referring to Cruise Bar Cash, it can be used for the purchase of any alcoholic beverages from a bar, or bar service (MDR for instance). I don't know about using it for the Cheers program, but I do know that I had some Cruise Bar Cash ($10 voucher) and they wouldn't apply it to soda purchases so I ended up having to buy a drink (a real hardship, I know LOL!) What I prefer to do is buy standard Cruise Cash, which can be used to purchase anything you put on your S&S card...
  10. Carnival's site does not indicate the letter needs to be notarized.
  11. BTW here's the link I found on the Carnival site: https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2544/~/minor-guest-policy
  12. According to what Carnival says, yes, all you need is an original letter signed by her parent/guardian indicating they give permission to allow her (her full name as outlined in her passport, I'd presume) to travel with you (again, your name as outlined on the ID you're using) on this particular cruise (Carnival xxx out of xxx Port) departing on xxx and returning on xxx. It does not need to be notarized, which is what my friend was asking.
  13. I just looked this up on the Carnival site for a friend: Traveling with a MinorWhen traveling with a minor where one parent or both parents or legal guardians are not cruising, we strongly recommend bringing an original signed letter from the absent parent(s) or legal guardians authorizing the minor to travel with you. This will expedite processing by the Department of Homeland Security.
  14. ahhhh- how I love my fellow Cruise Critic members for making me smile! But I have to get back to work so I'll just say... Hello Goodbye (sorry- just had to get in there!)
