Default Silly Question -- Monday Night Football on Valor



I'm new to Carnival and am sailing on the Valor this September. Since they just recently announced the football schedule, I see my beloved Vikings are playing on MNF while we're on board. I'm wondering if the game might be televised in the sports bar or something.

If there's a chance, I'll pack my jersey and face paint.

Cheers,

Angela

Having the same issue.....my trip is in December and will miss (although Tivo will be rolling) Cowboys @ Atlanta.....and Eagles @ Cowboys.

I'm on the Triumph and the Atlanta game is on a Saturday...!!!!

Such dilemas.....but the best part is we're on vacation. As long as I don't hear the scores until I see them....i should be good!

I haven't been on those ships, but on the Conquest this past Dec. What games were not on the room tv could be found in the sports bar. Four or Five tv's all with different games. It was great.

Have fun....

What kind of channels do you get on the room TV? Is the reception good?

I think it depends on the area you are cruising. We have been about to receive CBS, FOX, CNN, Weather etc.

I'd bet that you can see Monday Night Football on the Valor. It might just be in one of the bars, or lounges, but if they can receive it, it'll be on somewhere on the ship, even if not in your room. I know for a fact, that I've seen MNF on some cruises, including the Caribbean Princess, and some others!
Keep the faith!

They ruined our chance for SuperBowl glory in 1998. Never cried so hard in my life (except maybe while in labor). *lol*

SKOL VIKES!

Thanks Ken, I'm glad to hear you've seen MNF on some cruises. I'm crossing my fingers we can catch it in the sports bar, at least.

Appreciate the reply.

I hate to dissapoint you, but you didn't have a shot against my beloved Broncos that year.

The cabin TV generally gets ABC (from Erie, PA), NBC (from New York City, NY), CBS (from Nashville, TN), CNN, CNN international, CNN Latin America (in Spanish), TNT, and a couple other channels. They may retune the satelite to pick up other channels, such as trying to get Fox on Sundays for football. They also broadcast ESPN in the sports bar. Reception is usually good, but poor weather may hamper reception.

But a girl can dream right?? In my mind, I always envisioned us going all the way that year. I mean, at least that's how it played out in my head.

But, *sigh*, I am destined to have to re-live that &%$*# field goal over and over and over again for as long as I live. I see Falcons in my nightmares.



Thanks for the info on the TVs and stuff. I'm really looking foward to this cruise (been a loooong time since my last one) and it will be even better if I can catch the Vikes.

Have a good one,

Ang
