You can adjust your prepaid gratuities anytime after they post to your sign and sail card before the last day of your cruise on debarkation day. It can't be adjusted on the day you leave the ship. This is in regards to a Carnival Ship.

Alrighty, thanks very much!

If you prepay or pay the standard gratuity on your account at departure it gets divided amongst the staff at a pre arranged percentage per staff member...if you choose to do your own gratuities I would suggest bringing envelopes and giving it to the staff as you see fit...if you do not have gratuities removed by the last night it will automatically be added to you account

First time cruiser here and I prepaid my gratuities, so asking for a friend...., Is tipping the 90.00 per person mandatory and can it be changed if you feel like the service wasn’t satisfactory. We have a difference of opinion on this and we want to know if that amounts goes to strictly house keeping/ room or ALL areas of service on the boat as well? ( like in dining halls) Thanks in advance for any advice! ..... hooray for 10 more days!!! 😍

They may lock the Cove Balcony rooms during high seas, but I think this is very rare on the Dream’s itineraries

CandiMancil

Oct 08, 2018 - 3:29 pm

Awesome thank you

ShawnaNonna

Oct 08, 2018 - 2:47 pm

They never locked them. We were outside in the middle of night every night.

CandiMancil

Oct 08, 2018 - 1:59 pm

Anyone who gets a balcony room. Do they lock the doors at a certain time and then open back up in the morning? I know they lock them for high sees just wondering it they do nightly?

ahottoddie

Oct 08, 2018 - 1:10 am

I like the Barrier Reef with Starfish Island because they take you straight from the ship...no tender in to the mainland then boat back out...much better use of time

richardsons816

Oct 07, 2018 - 6:02 pm

I think we have a beach party booked

richardsons816

Oct 07, 2018 - 6:01 pm

richardsons816

Oct 07, 2018 - 6:00 pm

richardsons816

Oct 07, 2018 - 5:59 pm

We are doing the beach party in costa maya, tubing in Belize and zip lining in Honduras. 2 adults, 2 kids (6 & 8)

richardsons816

We are doing the tubing through the caves

hannahrenea365

Oct 07, 2018 - 5:10 pm

Is there a specific snorkeling excursion or are just any of them good

ahottoddie

Oct 07, 2018 - 2:52 pm

Best snorkeling I have ever done, but have never done the Great Barrier reef

hannahrenea365

Oct 07, 2018 - 2:47 pm

I have heard that’s a good one.

Bnance509 I figured that's why I needed to book an excursion

bnance509

Aug 31, 2018 - 2:43 pm

We have nothing booked yes. Cozumel has like 6 ships we may stay on board or just off the ship. Way too many people.

bnance509

Aug 31, 2018 - 2:41 pm

My hubby wears a back pack so we can put sub screen & hats / sunglasses in. I carry a cross body purse for the other items.

Bring your sail & sign card and a towel and $$ for extras on excursions...not much else necessary

What did you decide to do

jrosebrat55

Aug 26, 2018 - 9:58 am

I booked through deb with Carnival

vettie850

Aug 25, 2018 - 7:39 pm

Hi I booked through Carnival. What do you do

jrosebrat55

Aug 25, 2018 - 12:49 pm

Vettie850. Did u book through ship or outside

jrosebrat55

Aug 16, 2018 - 8:52 am

I asked this. The port in NO does not.

upton

Aug 15, 2018 - 8:19 pm

Question about parking at the port. Do any of the garages near the port offer free parking for handicap? I know some ports do like Charleston.

upton

Aug 15, 2018 - 8:15 pm

We are staying at Days Inn Grenada. It's not a 5-star but it's decent. $145 park your car for 7 days free and they show you to and from the port

jrosebrat55

Aug 15, 2018 - 9:41 am

Has anyone taken a ferry over to visit playa del Carmen on their own? Or on an excursion? Thoughts or advice appreciated. Guess we will do ruins in Costa Maya.

jrosebrat55

Aug 13, 2018 - 11:17 pm

Done. Very exciting

River boat in Belize and dolphins in Cozumel. I just cancelled what we had in Costa Maya. Everything just seemed to ruff for mom

jrosebrat55

Aug 04, 2018 - 5:07 pm

I have been trying to research Halloween festivities and so far looks like our cruise may have one night

I was wondering if anyone on the Dream out of New Orleans on Oct 21 2018 would be interested in doing a bit of casual touring together as a small group in any of the ports. Not excursion but checking out local areas shopping etc. Safety in numbers.. Fun to have people to play with. It is my sister and myself.. The more I read about all the options I also like the idea of a casual experience.

TommyDoran

Aug 01, 2018 - 12:22 pm

Hey everyone! My wife and I are also joining y'all. We'll be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary on 10/22. Also I heard that Carnival is having Halloween celebrations on ALL the cruises in October.

jrosebrat55

Jul 27, 2018 - 9:14 pm

Schew parking is costly. Any suggestions on decent but not high priced location to spend the night before and leave car for cruise?

jrosebrat55

Jul 27, 2018 - 9:07 pm

Yea we must plan a little meet up for sisters. We are in rm 9221

upton

Jul 25, 2018 - 8:08 pm

Another sister group here. My sister and I are cruising with you.

jrosebrat55

Jul 25, 2018 - 2:09 pm

I have a question about parking at port of New Orleans. Do they have handicapped parking and what is the cost? In port if Charleston if you have handicapped license or placard, it is no charge. Wondering how NOLO handles it.

jrosebrat55

Jul 20, 2018 - 2:35 pm

What excursions are u taking or if cruised before do you prefer?

jrosebrat55

Jul 19, 2018 - 6:35 pm

Yep. We did sunshine last November out of Charleston. Great food and staff. But the ship left a lot to be desired.

CandiMancil

Jul 19, 2018 - 6:24 pm

Sulphur Louisiana. Around the same distance to both ports, but the only way i could sail on the dream or a big ship this time was out of New Orleans

jrosebrat55

Jul 19, 2018 - 6:09 pm

I enjoyed Charleston. It was not a grand port. But I love Charleston And it is close. Miami of course is Miami..candiMancil where are u coming from

jrosebrat55

Jul 19, 2018 - 6:07 pm

How exciting

CandiMancil

Jul 19, 2018 - 5:56 pm

We will be on that same cruise!!

CandiMancil

Jul 19, 2018 - 5:55 pm

I've been wondering the same thing. I've been to the galveston tx port and it was great

NautiMandy

Jul 17, 2018 - 9:03 pm

We have all excursions booked except Costa Maya. Any ideas on what to do? (Aside from ruins or Tropicante)

jrosebrat55

Jul 16, 2018 - 10:03 am

Thank you

AnaJames

Jul 16, 2018 - 9:50 am

I'm going to try the Fulton Street parking. I think it is $13 a day for covered and $10 for not. With a shuttle to and from. Look pn line.

jrosebrat55

Jul 15, 2018 - 10:19 pm

I have never left from the port of New Orleans. What is the parking situation to leave your car? Cost? Convenience.. Any thoughts? Advice..

AnaJames

Jul 15, 2018 - 1:05 pm

I've tubed in the U.S. but not outside.

AnaJames

Jul 15, 2018 - 1:04 pm

In Cosamel we are doing a all inclusive resort through cruises.com. Haven't decided on Rotan or Costa Maya yet.

jrosebrat55

Jul 15, 2018 - 10:13 am

Tubing sounds way fun.

jrosebrat55

Jul 15, 2018 - 10:13 am

Funny we just put our rtic cups on the packing list. My son and I did. A movie on the serenity deck on the sunshine so I am really looking forward to it. Won't your butt get sunburned..😁 we are planning on doing the Ruins in Costa Maya.

AnaJames

Jul 15, 2018 - 10:08 am

We love the beaches and we are going Tubing in Belize with Butts up. Bring large coverer drinking glass to take along. The shows are great. Try anytime dinning. You have to go to the Serenity Deck for adults only. Very peaceful.

jrosebrat55

Jul 15, 2018 - 10:03 am

Thank you. I get excited just seeing a fish and my sister never has. So any beach will work. But never snorkeled in this area. So will check out Belize.. Thank you we are so excited

AnaJames

Jul 15, 2018 - 9:39 am

I hear that Belize is the best Rotan is next of the two. Mexico is next and not too colorful as the first two.

jrosebrat55

Jul 15, 2018 - 9:32 am

Where is best place to snorkel for beginners, at the ports we are visiting?
