Re: Elation

I just read it again, do you mean $62.00 each way or round trip? If it is round trip, $150.00 each way is probably not too bad, and you would have the convenience/security of being with Carnival...

Re: Elation

We live in Houston so I don't know. But try port of galveston.com or look up car services/taxi's houston in google. I would think you could just get a limo or town car to drive you and just pay a...

Re: Re: Soda card - price increase

We bought them for our 2 girls as soon as we boarded. For us it was more than worth it. They used them all day, and needed them at meals as well. Even with the increase, I feel it is still worth...

Re: Re: Cozumel - not to impressed (Carlos & Charlies)

I kind of gathered from posts here and on another cruise board website I frequent that it was a party place. Noone ever talks about the food, just how wild and how much fun it was. But, on our...

Re: Question for ladies, Regarding shoes

First of all, cut the evening shoes down to one formal, for both nights, and one nice heel for more casual nights. Then you only have 2 sets of high heels to worry about. I pack flat shoes, like...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Tipping?

That's touchy here. We had an NCL cruise booked and for our 11 year old is was only $5.00 per day. Carnival is the same for over 2. The gripe here is children can make as big or bigger messes. ...

Re: Re: Ice bucket

Ours is quite large, but did fit through the exray as a carry on. We didn't carry it filled with us, just cushioned our wine in it. It never leaked with the ice in it. We wanted a make shift...

Re: Re: Re: Re: towels

I always overpack--didn't want to lug beach sized towels for 4. Also didn't want to wash, therefore you would have to reuse them for 1 week. Carnival gives you great big, nice beach towels, in your...

Re: Re: $200 hold?

Has anyone confirmed the hold stuff?? By the time they add the tips and a few purchases you are at $200.00 We were over $200.00 with just our tips. I think once you start charging, you are kind of...

Re: Re: Tipping?

Paul,
At any time during your cruise, even the last night (I think there was a time limit, but pretty late) you can take off the automatic tipping, get envelopes and do it the old fashioned way. ...

Re: Re: no iron???

I heard steamers are fine--try that. I tried that Downy wrinkle free stuff everyone suggests here, but it doesn't really work!

Re: Re: Staterooms

If it is a true triple, you will have a pull down bunk. As other posters said, these are great. They don't take up any room and the kids love them, they are big and look comfortable. We met many...

Re: Spirit cabin 5216--big enough for 4?

We were just on the Elation. It's a different class of ship. Our room had 190 square feet. I did not feel it was big enough for 4 of us and would never get one room again. Maybe a suite. But...
