  1. I know this is a long shot, single gay guy here going on a Carnival cruise, I know...lol going on a short cruise with a good buddy of mine, just curious to see if any other guys were gonna be on board.

    Did Carnival Raise the Price of Social Media Package?

    I was getting ready to pre-purchase mine for my upcoming cruise in February and noticed the increase too. I dont mind the increase as long as they improve it so it actually works and doesn't constantly shut down or go painfully slow!
  4. So me and my friend like to cruise a lot. We just got back from doing a 4-day out of Jacksonville on the Elation to the Bahamas. WHen we got back, I checked both our offers, and he seemed to have gotten a Premier cruise offer. (Im not surprised as he likes to play blackjack). We are looking at a couple different cruises, and I was curious. It says he gets the Drinks on us card the first day along with a couple other perks like priority boarding and luggage. Does the drinks on us card also include his guest? I was reading other message boards and they said YES, 1 guest gets it too? Im keeping my fingers crossed (yn)because if you all give me good news, I'm most likely going to book it. I got the DOU card once back in 2015 or so automatically one other cruise because i think I did good on the slots one previous cruise. Never got it since. lol
  5. I like soda now and then, but I really want the juice for mixers in case I get an alcohol package. The 6 they give you probably won't be enough for me for a whole bottle of liquor, plus I like to make different types of drinks.
  6. Hey there, getting ready to sail on a 4 day cruise on the Elation here in 2 days! Have 2 questions. I am kind of interested in the bottomless bubbles package, but not 100% sure. I see its the same price regardless if I purchase it online or on the ship. Can I purchase the package any time during the cruise? So say I decide the 2nd night I may want it, can I get it then? Also, is it any cheaper buying an alcohol pacakge from the funshops online Vs. waiting til you get on board? I've never ordered any packages from funshops before. Thanks

    Unfriendly gays on cruises

    Funny you mention the Elation because I was on it about 2.5 weeks a go and same thing. It's a shame.
  8. I don't want this to sound like a rant, but it kinda sorta is. Has anyone noticed the influx of unfriendly gay couples on cruises? I mean I can sort of understand why a lot of gay couples are unfriendly or maybe dismissive. Maybe they are on a honeymoon, or just want a vacation together without any other men in the way, but it just sucks when you try to interact with other gay men on a "straight" cruise, and they just put their nose in the air at you. Maybe it has to do with the cruise line? I was on a Carnival cruise about 2 weeks a go out of Jacksonville, FL. I saw very few gay couples, but the ones I did see, they were just all snobbish and dismissive. I just thought to myself "Umm guys this is a Carnival cruise, don't know where the snobbish attitude is coming from". Who knows, maybe I booked the cruise for insecure gay couples? Maybe Carnival specializes in a different type of gay? It was a shame. The LGBT get together, NO ONE showed up except me and one other gay man. Of course we were both single and we chatted for a while, but he turned out to be a weirdo....Im guessing there just isnt a lot of gay men who travel with Carnival....and of course its easy to figure out why..... I went on a Norwegian cruise in 2015 and I met the coolest group of gay people. We had a group of us who got together every night, a couple times for dinner, it was the coolest thing ever. No one felt insecure or stuck up....it was awesome....but idk, this last cruise, just was bad. So I'm probably going to be told its Carnival...and Im sure thats a big reason why.

    Carnival Elation Cabin E187

    LOL too funny Im actually staying in this exact room next week on my cruise. So how was the room?
  10. Booked a last minute cruise here in 2 weeks. I know this is probably a lost cause since most gay men I know don't cruise carnival but might as well throw this into the mix lol. Single gay guy here, looking for friends to hang with, or more....
  11. Thanks for the answers everyone. I already booked the cheers online. I also saved 50 bucks cause I got a 500 dollar gift card for 450. Basically almost covered gratuity. Whoop whoop!
  12. Ok, so I hope I am not asking a question that is asked all the time lol. This is my 8th cruise with Carnival, but the first time I ever purchased the Cheers package. Will you be able to use your cheers package right away when you board? I typically like to get up on the Lido deck and start celebrating right away. lol
