  1. Is there a dress code? Is this the same restaurant that serves the sushi? I guess I don't know where this is located.....
  2. This is all good to know, as our shuttle is at 10:05 a.m. and I would rather be on the ship than outside waiting on the curb. Plus, I can sleep in a little later.....Thanks to all!
  3. I'm just wondering what time they actually kick you off the ship on the last day of the cruise..... Thanks
  4. I am in the casino alot, but am not a high roller. I play quarter slots, quarter video poker, occasional $1 slots, sometimes video poker triple play with a $60 buy in.....our last cruise was Saturday to Saturday and I earned my 1500 points about 1:00 a.m. on Friday....
  5. What is CBP? Maybe it will help that we are Platinum?
  6. Thanks for the replies. I ended up booking Galveston Limo, as they have an 8:05 back to the airport. We are flying out of Hobby. The lady said we should make our 10:40 a.m. flight. Does anyone know about what time they start letting you off the ship if you take off your own luggage? Thanks for all your replies.
  7. We used Galveston Express on our last cruise out of Galveston. They were great! However, this time, they won't be able to pick us up early enough on our last day to make it in time for our flight out of Houston. (They don't do a pickup until 9:00 a.m. at the port and our flight out of Houston is at 10:40 a.m.). Do you have any recommendations for a shuttle service from Houston to Galveston (and back) that will drop us at our hotel on a Friday night and pick us up at the cruise port the next Saturday and take us back to the airport? I would just like to hire someone that has a good reputation. Thanks
  8. We would like to book the Cozumel Dolphin Swim with Unlimited Food and Drinks for $125 pp. Can anyone tell me what beach this is located on? How far from the Carnival pier? If you have 4 people in your party and only 2 want to swim with the dolphins, but the other 2 only want to go along, is that possible? How would that work? Thanks, Deb
  9. Does Carnival still dock at the same pier they have been using for at least the last 10 years. We will be catching a taxi to Chankanaab and I just want to make sure that we won't be on the other side of the island, instead of just 4 miles away from the beach. Thanks
  10. Do you have small children going with you? We just did the Breeze in April (husband and I in our 50s) and we had shore excursions set up for all 4 days in port and I found it exhausting! I think the port days were all right in a row.....
  11. I have always gone to the casino cage and the fun money was loaded on to my card, which meant you had to play with it in the casino. Never have I been given cash.
  12. I just booked the Vista today for March 2020. I booked an Ocean Suite for my husband and I and an Interior for our girls (21 and 30). We were hoping that they could be across the hall from us; however, the ship was so booked we barely got rooms at all. The girls are maybe 9 doors down the hall. What I'm wondering is if there is a way to go to the Carnival website and see what rooms are available (thinking someone might cancel and I could get them closer to us). I know this isn't a major biggie, but just thought it could be something I could check every once in awhile. I know you can do a "mock" reservation....will that work?
  13. We have sailed out of Galveston once. We stayed at an Embassy Suites, I believe. We did not have a car, as we took some sort of shuttle from Houston and there was noplace near the Embassy to walk to for dinner (although there was a grocery store). It looked kind of cute when we were taken down by the pier the next morning....are there some things to do down there and a nice place to stay? We have a 10 a.m. flight from Milwaukee on Friday and will be getting to Galveston early enough to actually do something besides just eat....so looking for a nice hotel and maybe a grocery that sells liquor....thanks
  14. Buy some wine when you get to your port city. Bring it onboard. If you're very nice to your wait staff, you may not get the corkage fee.
