More bad times for Carnival!

Looks like you pays your money.... you take your chance....

Republican Richard Nixon had a tape gap longer than that. No big deal.

Just off a Carnival cruise this morning, on another one tomorrow, and another nother one next month.

Now why someone would pay for a hamburger on Royal when they could have a superior, and free, Guy's burger on Carnival, is beyond me. I guess some people have too much money.

Default Hamburger

I agree with you on getting on a Carnival cruise ship today and next month and whenever, but you lost me when you said why pay for a hamburger on RCCL and get a free one on Carnival. I get free ones on RCCL all the time, even in the MDR. Don't have to go to Johnny Rockets to get one. Get at lunch and in the evening free, ready to sail anytime.

Can get them in the MDR on Carnival, too. I was playing off of the OPs screen name.

A 12 minute power out - you joined this site to post that? I don't read the UK papers, based on the accompanying photos that it is one of the scandal rags I have heard.

You don't need to pay for any food on Royal. I just got off the Oasis of the Seas today and we did not pay for any food.
And believe, we ate quite well.

Food is free on every cruiseline including Hamburgers....It's the cruisers choice if they want to pay for speciality dining.

Exactly! I have never paid extra for food on any cruise. And for our last several cruises I even get free booze.

I would say that this is "yellow journalism" at its best. Using pictures of the electrical fire 15 years ago in a story about a twelve minute power loss is ridiculous.

There will be a large number of people who will just read the title of the article, look at the pictures and believe there was a massive fire.

Yes: Many people do just that.

Take care,
Mike

Ok, the bottom line is no burgers are free. They just are prepaid for by you and everybody else.

I never miss the diamond lounge for a couple cocktails and some fun talking to the other diamond members and the staff. It really sets up a nice, fun evening.

On our recent cruise we met some really nice and interesting people.

Manuel,

On the Liberty Of The Seas this past December I sailed alone on B2B cruises. I really looked forward to the conversation in the diamond lounge every night. I met a some great people!

The Liberty of the Seas has a great Diamond lounge. I have sailed on her twice.

I guess we've taken this Carnival thread about as far off topic as it can get, since it is now about Royal Caribbean diamond lounges.

So....I am going to close it down and wish everyone - both Carnival and Royal Caribbean fans - a great next cruise!
