My husband, Clyde, and I will be there somewhere. No room assignment yet. Was hoping to track it down today but no luck. How about you? Do you know your cabin, and if so, how did you find out?

We have been on two other cruises. One many years ago on the Big Red Ship, which I believe was later purchased by Disney Cruise Lines. May not be around any longer. Then our second cruise, about 4 or 5 years ago was on RCC. We have always had a great time and keep wondering why it takes us so long to book another. So this will be our first time experiencing Carnival. Look forward to seeing you on board. We should set a time and place to meet for drinks.

Ok, I hope this is the right bar. I read somewhere recently that there is a great bar that is in the back of the ship where you sit and look out over the water. From looking at the ship map, I think this may be on the Lido Deck, next to where the Pizza is served. Want to try that? We are open to suggestions. Name a time and place.

At least you guys have found others going on the same cruise. I still haven't found anyone from any of these boards that will be on the Sensation with me in 2 weeks!! The 2 months will actually go by pretty fast for you guys. I was just looking at my countdown clock remembering when it said like 145 days and now I'm finally down to 21 days. Going shopping in a little bit to get a few things actually. yay! :o)

Hockeyluver, I see you're surviving the No Hockey Season. Guess it helps that we have something to look forward too, eh? Its so sad though. I remember looking at the Redwings schedule seeing what games I would be missing while on my cruise, and hoping that maybe I could catch a game on espn in my cabin or something. But now I won't be missing any game at all! They should be playing the Caps on the day we leave for our cruise, and Columbus that Saturday. So sad Anyway enjoy your cruise!

We have an early seating. Didn't know there was more than one early seating. I don't know what the second early is but it sounds good.

How about meeting right after the life vest demonstration? We could head to the bar then and have a little time before dinner.

sounds good do you know where your cabins are yet? We will have to send our two teen daughters off to explore the ship. The bar at the back on the Lido is that correct?

Yes Kim the lack of hockey is horrible!! At least i have my OHL (Ontario Hockey League) to watch. We have season tickets to that and will miss 3 games while vacationing but I think i can handle it . How true about not worrying about missing the Wings games while on the cruise. When we were on the Legend last year we didnt even get to see a game in the sports bar!!! That was very disappointing!! Enjoy your cruise, want to hear a full report when you get back!!!

Hi Dee,

I have read about the Kelly method - but how do you go about doing it - where do you start? How do you know what room to start with??

Still don't know where my room is - when do they tell you?

Thanks, Sue

The Kelly method was a long process. I couldn't believe I was spending time doing it and not just waiting for our docs to arrive. Actually, I called Carnival and they said with the guarantee cabin, you would be assigned a room at boarding, so I imagine this could be subject to change but I would think the change could only be for the better.

I have a Carnival Cruise brochure. Actually, I have two. My older one shows the cabin layout and cabin numbers. They are extremely hard to read and I ended up buying a magnifying glass so I knew what cabin numbers to search for. I then went deck by deck using the Kelly Method. This involves signing into the Carnival website and pulling up your reservation. Then you go to the gift section to send a gift to your room. Any gift will do since you will never complete the process. It will ask for your booking code and your cabin number. When you enter the wrong cabin number it will respond with "incorrect booking code or cabin number". You continue until you get a response that tells you no gift can be sent to a guaranteed reservation. Contact your Carnival representative -- or something along those lines. I booked an outside cabin so only searched those. It at least eliminates about half of the cabins. Put the deck code and cabin number, i.e., E78 or M142, etc.

If you don't have the patience or you have more sense than I, just wait for your docs. They will probably come in the next week or two from what I'm reading on the boards.

yes that is when we do the doc dance sometime around the middle of november you can start waiting impatiently for them. Since we have assigned rooms no need for the kelly method with us. You on the other hand should give it a try but since you booked a single guarentee start there first. and good luck!
