8) Dear Jikan11,
Best Wishes on your upcoming wedding.
#1 Air conditioning: You will have 2-3 adjustable vents in your
stateroom. As far as the dining room and lounges, I always
have a sweater. Sometimes, it is a little too cool.
#2 Penthouse suite: I have stayed in the PH on the Sensation, a
sister ship to Inspiration. The jacuzzi tub is big enough for 1
person. There are not many outlets. 1 or 2. Be sure to take
a power strip for more plug ins and a bunge cord to help hold
the balcony door open.
#3 I take my soda along with me. 20 oz bottles in my suitecase
works fine. Water, juice, coffee, tea, lemonade are free.
You can also purchase soda while in port.
#4 I have not used the internet while on board. Carnivals website
has information on this.
#5 Tipping: I just have them put on my sail and sign card. If
someone deserves more, I give it to them personally. As far
as the Maitre'd goes, if he stops by our table more than once
during the cruise or assists us with table reassignment, we
will tip him at the end of the cruise. We had one Maitre'd
get really rude, so we did not tip.
#6 My comments: Take along a roll of duct tape. Sounds crazy
but you can use it to repair torn luggage, makes a great strapless
bra, and you may find other uses. the power strip and bunge
cords are musts. Also, take advantage of free room service. All
you have to do is tip ( usually $2-3). Carnival has a nice room
service menu. We have a picnic on the balcony or bed.
I have cruised 6 times and leave in 9 days for another Carnival
fun cruise. If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
You can email me or I will check this thread.
Again, Congratulations to you and your intended.
