Just a note on the Captian's cocktail party vs the farewell party. There were two captian's cocktail parites. One before each dinner seating. If I'm understanding correctly there is only one hour long farewell party on the last night and the ad is buried in the capers so people won't notice it. I understand what Carnival is doing they are aiming towards dumping the farewell party altogther it is a cost cutting measure. Better to offer $1 off drinks and get the bar revenue then free drinks.

I enjoy Carnival and all cruiselines have been cost cutting because of the decrease in cruise price. But please be aware that is what Carnival is doing. Carnival is taking away one of the parties with free drinks.
One part age; three parts liquor!
