  1. Nothing for me. Maybe Carnival knows I've been cheating on them.
  2. As I understand it, each muster station has a particular number of passengers assigned to it, those fitting into a particular lifeboat. If the kids show up at the wrong muster station, the staff member will send them to their correct muster station. IMO, I'd do one of two things: Go to guest services and see if you can get them switched officially to your muster station or I'd let these teens go to their own muster station. I know if I were in your shoes, I'd hate option 2, but it might be the one you're stuck with.
  3. I use an agent for my Carnival cruises. I get mileage points using my airline credit card and this particular agency. For other lines, I email 4 or 5 agents I know of and ask for a quote for a particular sailing on a particular line. I just did that very thing for my Crystal cruise and was offered OBC (or rebate; my choice) by 4 of the 5 agents. I went with the highest bidder (and an agent who's been in the business for decades).
  4. It snowed out here in the desert and it stuck for that day and into the next. I don't get snow too often, so I had to get a couple of shots.
  5. I guess I just don't understand the concept. My first faux pas (which should be my middle name) was thinking the button was a coaster. The server hurried over, moved my glass and explained how it all worked. Naturally, I forgot to turn the button over all through the meal. I don't remember all the meats right now, but I know there were two I enjoyed and tried to get a second serving of one of them. I was pretty much told I couldn't get it until the chef put that meat out. I suppose that makes sense for this type of eating establishment. But for the uninitiated (me), I was a little taken aback that I had to wait for a while to get more chicken. The sides were just OK and nothing I'd write home about. There was a baby at the table next to us who was getting fussy and maybe that was the thing that completely changed the ambiance for me. I was ready to go even before the pineapple came out. On our next Crystal voyage I won't be disappointed if we miss Churrascaria.
  6. I predict the ship will be completely empty by 9:00.
  7. Interesting that those exact tubes were a dollar less on the ship AND I had OBC. 😍
  8. Thank you, ladies! The Rose hand cream reminds me of a lotion my mother used to use that she always referred to as "rose water." Like the L'Occitane, Mom would use just the tiniest bit on her hands and they became so soft! Maybe I'm just waxing nostalgic. Who knows? 🙂
  9. My concern was how much would be heard from at the end of the hall where the public areas begin. I have a feeling it will be fine. Wonderful, in fact. By, God, it'll be thrilling because I'm on a Crystal cruise! Down payment processed, countdown begins for the West Coast Wanderer on August 8, 2022. I know....that's a whole lot of Carnival before I get to board a Crystal ship again.
  10. What are your thoughts? Are the cabins noisy? I'm happy with an OV cabin if it means I can have another Lonely Mule.
  11. On our last cruise we had some OBC to burn and I ended up getting a couple of tubes of L'Occitane hand cream, Rose 4 Reines Velvet Hand Cream and Fast-Absorbing Hand & Nail Cream. I have fallen in love with these hand creams! A pea-sized amount is all that's needed for my really dry hands. I'm wondering if anyone has seen L'Occitane hand creams in the shops on your cruise line of choice. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled from now on!
  12. I guess I was just brought up to keep my feet off the couch, especially feet in shoes. But, in the case of a chaise lounge, shoes or no shoes? I can hear my dad saying, "Get your shoes off the furniture," so I'd have to take my shoes off before putting my feet on the chaise. Who knew it was wrong??
