my wife and i am going on the glory in feb 28 of 2010 this will be the second cruise with carinval
what i like to know is does anybody know what the pictures cost about like when you board the ship and the ones they take at the ports and formal night pictures
and do they still give you lemonade to drink if you don`t want soda
because on princess all they offer was either coffee or ice-tea or ice water
it has been about 6 yeas since we been on carinval
and does anybody know what the bingo games run now
Yes the lemonade, ice tea, coffee, & juice is free and all you can drink. We sailed on her May 2008. It was our favorite cruise to date. The 5x7's were I believe 15.00 and the 8x10's were 21.00. I purchased online at the Carnival web site ahead of time the photo coupons at 15.00 each. I usually buy enough to pay for our pictures I purchase. You do not save any money but all I do is present the coupon at check out when we chose our pics and pay for them that way. They are found on the cabin desk when you first enter your cabin. I always buy one pic going on or off the ship at a port and two at formal night and use the coupons to pay for them all. It just takes the edge off any bill we would have at the end of the cruise.
I was on the Glory last week and the embarkation photos are 6" X 9 " and were $ 8.99 each. The same applies to the gangplank photos taken as you disembark at the ports. We had one 8 X 10 made and it was $ 21.99
I can't comment on the bingo as I stay away from that.
As to drinks, at breakfast in the buffet there was orange, apple and a mixture of passionfruit / guava juice called passoguava or some such thing--which was actually quite good, and of course coffee.
At lunch there was 2-3 types drinks which included lemonade and of course, coffee again.
Hope this helps. As you are going in Feb. of '10, there might be some increases but at least last week that was the prices.
Have fun !!
