Emerald (4/7)



  1. We're relative newbies as well, but happy to ratcheting up those numbers over the next few years.
  2. I'm curious about this as well.
  3. I don't care what the poll says, I'll never set foot on a Carnival cruise. Ever.
  4. The older I get, the less it bothers me to scooch by with a polite "Excuse me" as I move past.
  5. Not too many things get under my skin, but on our last cruise the folks in the cabin next door sat out on their balcony for hours at a time having long and repeated conversations on speaker phone with various friends and family. It made sitting out on our own balcony almost impossible. Even inside our cabin with the sliding door closed, we could still hear their conversations clearly. We'd never experienced anything like that before. Hopefully it won't happen again.
  6. Just booked this itinerary and hoping to meet others booked on this same cruise. We are Amy & Frank from Georgia.
  7. And once again, Europe goes on hold. Lol. An important family function has dictated that we switch up our scheduling for this summer. Someday we'll make it to Europe. Leaving roll call open for those who still want to connect for this cruise.
  8. Our online cruise planner doesn't have any excursions listed for Key West. Is anyone else seeing options for Key West or are they just not listed yet? It seems odd since we are only about 90 days out that there shouldn't be anything offered yet.
  9. Just booked this second leg of a B2B Alaska cruise. Looking forward to meeting others!

  11. Changes in menu don't necessarily equate to less options or a less enjoyable experience. It means "different" - not worse or better. The menus haven't even rolled out yet and controversy is already being sowed. The menus on cruise ships have changed more than a few times over the past 4 or 5 decades. I know people who still miss the midnight buffet. I'm sure those with special dietary restrictions (low-salt, low-fat, vegan, etc.) will still be accommodated, no one will rush you through your meal if you don't want to be rushed, and no one will prevent you from asking for a quicker service if that's what you want. I'm also sure there will be enough choices each night to satisfy beef, fish, or chicken preferences. On previous cruises, if there was a menu in the MDR that was less than exciting for us, we'd go to Windjammer, choose that night for specialty dining, or order room service. There are more than enough choices when it comes to food when you're cruising. That will never change.
  12. I understand the philosophy behind building bigger cruise ships with more options, and understand the popularity of those ships, but what about those of us who prefer the smaller, more intimate ships? As the older, smaller ships are phased out (as they surely will be) will any newer smaller ships be built and added to the fleet? Are cruisers like me going to be phased out as well?
  13. Can a coffee card be used with room service? For instance, if I want a cappuccino with breakfast, can the card be used for that?
  14. Thanks for the quick response, Matt! We'll be patient and see how things play out.
