Fascinating how some folks get the ORANGE card and others don't. What does that mean, and my question is, who gets them and who does not? We received our cruise documents last week for the 4/1 Explorer-Eastern Caribbean--no ORANGE card. I'll be there as early as I can be (driving from Orando after 2 days at Disney World).
I'm soooooo excited about the cruise; luke warm, at best about WDW. Hopefully after the 2 days at WDW my opinion will have changed about WD.
I know this will not be a good comment but remember there were a few changes in airlines because of the 911 incident
I suppose that RC is taking action about it,
I suppose you should not worry.
Is for your own good, it gives confidence in there company
To be at your cabin a little bit late is not that trouble, in any case you cannot enter your cabin until 2 pm, that the case on adventure of the seas, and have limited areas to go until they finish cleaning it.
I hope that carnival and the other cruises lines take similar actions I will not mind if it is for my own protectionů
We got our docs. No orange card but it states not to arrive before one in the booklet. We arrived "on time" for our Carnival and were an hour or more getting on. We barely had enough time to scarf down some buffet lunch, get to the room, get to the life boat drills, run back down to put the vests back up and bon voyage. Felt very rushed for the first day of a vacation... then you met these people who had been there for hours, napping by the pool- drink in hand. They weren't even handing out drinks anymore by the time we got on and we were "on time"
This time we are going to try our best to board by noon.
