  1. That is also the beginning of a fiscal quarter allowing for start up costs to be in one quarter ... restaffing and ordering of supplies, final tuning of ships, etc and the beginning of profit making in the next quarter. I don't know about Carnival but many organizations also have the end of their fiscal year Sept 30th.
  2. Last position per this tracker was near South Africa https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:412402/mmsi:353479000/imo:8711344/vessel:CARNIVAL_ECSTASY
  3. Universal in Florida opened on the 5th.
  4. We currently have cove balconies booked for our Feb and Sept 2021 cruises. We prefer those balconies but will be calling to move to Deck 7 balconies instead. Plan is to not use elevators but to use the stairs to get around. Better for the health and more of an opportunity to social distance. two flights down to 5, 3 up to the Lido deck
  5. I am in a different situation. I booked two cruises in 2021 with gift cards. First one is February. It is all refundable but if I cancel I get gift cards back which will do me no good if I decide that I no longer want to sail, or if the cruise line has health/age restrictions that one of us cannot pass.
  6. The order is not an absolute 100 days it is an OR situation From the order "This Order shall continue in operation until the earliest of three situations. First, the expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that COVID-19 constitutes a public health emergency. Second, the CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific public health or other considerations. Or third, 100 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register." https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2020/s0409-modifications-extension-no-sail-ships.html
  7. Check to see what kind of OBC you have... some kinds are refundable. For example if your TA gives you OBC it should be refundable. Spend only the nonrefundable credits and you will get the rest refunded. If some of the excursions you have booked are still available when you get on board you can cancel the prepaid ones and re-book them. Remove the prepaid gratuities and pay with OBC. I have gotten cash by using the slots in the casino.
  8. I have left a surprise of goodies for hotel maids when I was flying and had a few cans of soft drinks or snacks I did not want to take on the plane. We often do a goodie bag for stewards of "hot" chips or "hot" candies.
  9. My offer was loaded in the past two hours and I grabbed it for a cruise I have booked in September. Figures I had just ordered $600 in gift cards that I will have to book another cruise to use 😀
  10. I found where I got the clue that there might be a change... from press release, John Heald, on 11/13/2019 " Pepsi has also pledged to work with Carnival in our ongoing efforts to reduce single-use plastics on board as we move more beverage products to aluminum, glass and soda dispensers where space and access allows. " ... it is on the "FB" ... you can read it by googling "John Heald coke pepsi"
  11. I should have phrased that as COULD not may. Since Carnival is doing a big push to minimize waste, with the change to Pepsi it could be where they changed to fountain on their drinks. Just a thought on my part.
  12. Currently the bottomless bubbles is canned drinks. That may change with the chance to Pepsi products.
