  1. that was the first thing i noticed as well 😎
  2. there's no cash on the table so i would be hard pressed to think any of the ship's personnel could say or do anything about it. now if they witnessed the exchange of money that would be a different question. never even occurred to me to get a live game going somewhere else other than the casino. great idea!
  3. my list pales in comparison to everyone else's don't hate - hah! 1 Mariner - our very first cruise ever 2 Liberty - sailing in 9 days whoo hoo! 3 Harmony - only 366 days to go!
  4. is it really a typo? I prefer my shites to be as comfortable as possible LOL😁
  5. yes, you are allowed to bring 2 - 750ml bottles of wine per stateroom.
  6. my wife and i have the drink package but will still bring on our 2 bottles. It's more of the convenience of having wine we both know we enjoy for in the evenings on the balcony or while getting ready in the room without having to run out and get some from the bar. nothing worse than getting stuck with a skunky wine at the end of the night, so we play it safe for those occasions. I've inadvertently turned her into a wine snob (as far as our expenses go) and she's particular as to what she likes so we've gotta keep momma happy! she never poo-poo's my uncontrollable cigar purchases so far be it for me to keep her from wanting something from our little top-shelf wine cooler lol
  7. Dropping luggage with porters then meeting with them first and checking in at a later time would be a safer and possibly less stressful idea. If I got on the ship, i wouldn't want to get back off LOL. Certainly don't want to deal with doing boarding 2X. not to mention Murphy's Law once you got back off to meet family.
  8. i say slap em with a huge fine but keep them coming to the US ports. Any absence of Carnival in the US market place, while highly unlikely, will probably cost us more money simply from Royal taking advantage of the extra business gained from it all.
  9. never even occurred to me to do this. great idea!
  10. sounds like you found the perfect way to vacation. Regardless of the circumstances, more people need to take your attitude to "stop and smell the ocean". While my wife and I have always been landlocked in our professions, we truly find solace in the sea. Plus it's just fun as hell!
  11. saw them at a local liquor store here in Dallas but from what i've heard, most chain liquor stores should carry them. I've always had a bottle for guests to add to their coffee but haven't seen these until recently.
  12. any idea if they have Rumchata or any knockoff's available on LIberty? If not, saw these "creamer cups" (its simply the same stuff from the bottles) that I may try to take onboard with us. would work out great in the room for my wife's coffee.
  13. you are correct, i had totally meant to reference the taxes. i shouldn't work and post at the same time lol
  14. For Royal, you can absolutely use your drink package immediately however TABC law limits cruise ships to only sell alcohol made in the great state of Texas while in port. once the ship has moved into international waters, full bars open up. ' Carnival on the other hand just chooses to hold off all together with their drink package making their CHEERS begin on day 2 (You don't pay for day 1). you can still purchase drink by drink, but they too have to follow the same TABC laws mentioned.
  15. If you are wanting fruity AND sweet, i also recommend sangrias, most moscato's, prosecco (it's a sparkling wine) and some rieslings. if you don't want them so sweet, but more crisp and fruity stick with pinot g's, sauv blanc and chard. on a different note, you can't go wrong with most of the fruity, non wine, drinks the bars will serve. Mojito's are great refreshing drinks that typically top my list throughout the day as well as Lava Flows and Mai Tais!
