  1. Are shots included in the Deluxe Beverage Package? If so, can you order a shot and a beer? Does Royal cut you off like Carnival?
  2. What do you take off? I believe they open the beers..
  3. Hello! I will be sailing on the Sunrise on 5/27/19 - getting off as you are getting on 6/10/19! We booked this cruise on Black Friday and Early/Late Seating were both waiting list only at that time... We are Gold on Carnival after this cruise will be Platinum so IDK if loyalty helps us clear the list faster but by the first week of December we got the email with our desired seating. What level of membership are you?
  4. Hi All, We will be traveling to Half Moon Cay for the first time on the Carnival Sunrise in May... Has anyone been there recently know if they still offer a drink package for $25 (15 drinks) as stated below on cruise critic? Also, wanted to know about the HAL kids club and does it apply to Carnival sailings? Is that secure kids programming similar to Disney's on Castaway Cay? Good to Know You'll pay extra for alcohol, even if you have an unlimited package booked on your ship. A Half Moon Cay package is available for about $25 that gets you 15 drinks for your day on shore. Passengers can rent private air-conditioned cabanas or two-story beach villas if they want to escape the crowds, but these can book quickly as there might be other ships in port at the same time. Many expenses -- such as drinks, activities and souvenirs at the line's island shop -- can be put on passengers' onboard accounts. However, for purchases at the straw market, you'll need cash. Also good to know for families with kids in tow, there is a Club HAL kids' club on the island, for parents who want to make sure their kiddos are enjoying some supervised time on shore, while they lounge one-on-one (or visit the massage cabana).
  5. Hi All -- We will be on the 14 Day Sunrise (Triumph) to Panama from NYC this May... We are squeezing 4 into an interior on Deck 6 so I would like to bring along some heavy duty magnets to hang my shoe organizer etc... Are the walls and doors on the Triumph metal? Also, do they allow Command Strips on Interior Walls or only on the doors for door decorations? Thanks!!!
  6. Hi All-- Would anyone have any recent Fun Times from the Triumph? Thanks in advance!
  7. Thanks all we just took advantage of the extended Cyber Monday Sale and pulled the trigger! So excited... 14 Day round trip from our home port NYC to Panama Cruise. Now only 178 days to go! I am just worried I'll be hooked to 14 day cruises from now on! I see B2Bs in my future...
  8. Hi -- My husband and I are considering a 14 Day Panama Cruise from NYC on Carnival Sunrise May 2019. He is concerned about being bored on the ship that long -- Do they have different shows -- he thinks the will repeat the headline shows... ? Also, will they change up dining menus or repeat? How many formal nights?
  9. Hi -- we are not new to Carnival but it is our first time cruising Carnival with our girls (ages 6 & 8). We took them on DCL last year and it was FABULOUS so I hope our upcoming trip on the Horizon lives up to their standards! ;) We are planning on doing the 8:15pm dinner seating ... Just wondering do they give out crayons & a coloring sheet to keep the kids busy until their food arrives? I am debating on whether to bring my own activity book for them... We really enjoyed Disney's dine & play program where the counselors would take the kids to the kids club around 9 after they ate so the adults could enjoy a leisurely dinner.
  10. Thanks and any idea if they allow them in the "Hot Tubs"?
  11. After 7pm when the pool opens to the public... is it still 12 years old+? We have a well behaved 6 year old & a 8 year old but we'd love to check it out in the evening.....
  12. Would anyone sailing on the Horizon during the first few sailings PLEASE post their Fun Times and the children's activities would also be greatly appreciated if possible!!!! Thank you in advance!!
