  1. Rumor has it that the ArriveCAN requirement will be gone before our cruise. I sure hope so. One less thing to worry about just 3 days before boarding. You can read more in the rumor forum.
  2. Next cruise will put us at D+. It only took us 23 years and a pandemic with double points. Don't see Pinnacle happening in this life time.
  3. Dang it! I just bought and received my test kits for my up coming cruise.
  4. Ten day forecast ending 7 Oct. Highs low 70's, lows mid 50's. Unless the pools are heated, too cold for this Southern boy to be in the pool. Sounds like great hot tub weather.
  5. We cruise on average every other year. I have not had much luck with future cruise on board. Usually the next itinerary I'm interested in is not published yet. You can get a future cruise certificate while on board that may help if your undecided or awaiting the cruise calendar to be updated. Not sure they can help if your already booked.
  6. Did Halloween some time ago on Radiance out of Tampa. Grownup Halloween party on the pool deck complete with costume contest. Teen club did a haunted house for the Adventure Ocean crew. Adventure Ocean crew trick-o-treated in the shops and other venues with the staff. Halloween themed photos with kids and with grownups. It was a lot of fun for the whole family.
  7. Got my block on Allure October of last year. I had to ask the loyalty ambassador for it.
  8. Leaving in less than a month on AOS for a 9 night Northeast cruise. Thanks for everyone's input good and bad. Never cruised on Adventure, never left out of Cape Liberty, and never done a Northeast cruise.
  9. I respect that people may have the "worst cruise" ever, but what thing or things made it so.
  10. Looks like a full ship. All cabin types showing sold out.
  11. Check in now open. Earliest boarding time available is 11 am.
  12. Our first time cruising on Allure several years ago, I loved the donuts and made a point of going down to the Boardwalk most mornings to eat one or two. Last year's trip on Allure, I tried one once. Not the same.
  13. If you have not done the NASA tour, do it and thank me later. As a Disney fan, I find your enthusiasm commendable. The trip is doable. I like the idea of hanging at Disney Springs for several hours. Free parking, lots of fun things to do there and great dinning. As for going in a park, 4-5 hours seems like a lot of time, but not really. I vote NASA, closer, less expensive and you'll have more time.
  14. The last couple of cruises I've taken I had to go to Guest Services to get the envelopes. There was a time that the envelopes where for service above and beyond and I think if you gave one to a crew member they could take it to their supervisor and get a reward of some type. The print on the envelope stated sometime to that affect. Those envelopes I have not seen in a long while.
  15. I had the same experience on my last cruise.
  16. Cruising to Canada in October. Should/can I complete the form/app now and update it closer to our cruise?
  17. Congrats. We will be D+ after our next cruise. I plan to stop chasing status after that and cruise more in less expensive cabins.
  18. Reminder that winning a bid for a suite and you are not currently booked in a suite does not give you double CAS points.
  19. Yes, but hit or miss. I've gotten a few over the years.
  20. Which ships currently offer Casita rentals?
  21. Flying the afternoon before the cruise. Flying out at 11 am from Newark after the cruise. Will we have enough time to get to the airport with getting in at 7 am?
  22. https://www.live5news.com/2022/05/25/south-carolina-ports-announce-end-carnival-cruise-contract/ Looks like the proposed cruise terminal is dead in the water. Pun intended.
