Carnival Cruise Lines Breaking News!

Carnival Cruise Lines to start charging for room service .....?

Image result for carnival cruise announcement
Carnival has announced it will start testing a 24-hour room service menu onboard several ships—but premium service comes with a fee. Why would you pay for room service I ask myself, this is a very big new problem for Carnival. If they announce this they will have alot less passengers and their reviews will have less stars than normal. Carnival is on the edge even without this fee, with their numerous problems at sea. If I was Carnival, I would not do this. Why are they doing this ? Because they have lost alot of money to repair ships and from the angry people that were stuck at sea who sued them? Norwegian Cruise Line is also jumping on it too, but why? They may have a few problems here and there but why do they need the extra money?  There have not been any disasters... stuck at sea... loses of power.... fire,  etc. What is going on behind the desk of Frank J. Del Rio, CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line? The move comes just a few days after rival cruise line Norwegian announced it would be adding a service charge to room service orders, reports Cruise Critic.
The new menu will feature a diverse range of items including sushi, chicken wings, fried shrimp and pizzas, ranging in price from $4 to $7. Carnival is hoping to offer cruisers better quality and more choices when it comes to ship dining. Free selections will still be available around the clock which include hot and cold sandwiches, salads, desserts and breakfast pastries, according to Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen.
Interview with v3 cruiser in fox news ;“What a shame if they start charging for room service items. I would be okay with paying for hot items though! Most of the food we can get from the lido when its open so it seems like we are being charged for something we already paid for in our cruise fair.''
The new menu will roll out on three Carnival ships-- the Imagination, Conquest and Pride-- on April 12. Customer feedback will guide the cruise line in determining whether or not the pay-per items will be rolled out to other ships in the future. I will be taking a survey to see what kids and frequent cruisers, knowing about the extra costs think about this.  Will they still be happy cruisers?

A friend of mine kindly gave me all her ratings of the Veendam. It was a 7 day voyage in Mexico.
Here are her ratings:

Ship  9/10

Food    7/10

Entertainment  5/10

Port Excursions     8/10                                        Image result for Veendam

Cabin                  7/10

Service                  8/10

Activities               6/10

The entertainment was dull, it was not as exciting as other cruise lines, that is what Holland America struggles with. The food was good but one meal was way too salty and chewy. Fantastic ship! The ship was not too big, not too small, just right.

Full Record of Costa Concordia

As you remember the Costa Concordia ran aground and almost sunk. What happened was the Costa Concordia hit a rock under the water and tipped over and started to slide down the small trench that was right underneath it. They decided that they would put 4 blocks underneath it to ship it on its last voyage as shown from these pictures.

The Great Mail Race 2

Yes I just received a package from carnival with a fun ship Freddy stuffie and 13 buffed up photos of the Carnival fleet. I'm still waiting for Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and Aida. It's so exciting
waiting for all these packages!!!!!

Quantum of the seas

The new ship Quantum of the seas is amazing. Truly amazing. It is scheduled to be in the Bahamas area for the next 5 weeks, that is good because when you go to links galore you can watch Quantum of the seas arrive and depart from a live web cam! Sadly Quantum Of the Seas is going to be leaving for china in may, china is becoming a very large cruise ship destanation! It will be replaced by Anthem of the Seas in the bahamas area.
