First relax! Enjoy the time away.

You do not have to stand for or buy every photo they take!

Set a limit on the casino playing and stick to it.

You don't have to leave the ship. You don't have to buy an excursion.
If you know, after researching the options, of something you would like to do locally, book it ASAP either thru the ship or independently. Keep in mind that stuff happens and you may miss a port or have bad weather. Excursions bought thru the ship are refunded immediately if the port or weather cancels. Independent bookings may or may not refund your $.

They have drink specials and cards to save $ on. DOTD (drink of the day) are fine. The have "bucket of beer" specials that sound like the way for you to go. If you have a preference on a beer, you may want to bring "a reasonable amount". If you are flying to the port, buy the drinks in the port city you sail from. Don't try to pack it on the plane.

Drink prices vary by day and location purchased. They have a party on the last day where the drinks are free for an hour or so. There is a (I think) 15% gratuity on EVERY drink so keep that in mind as well.

If you search for "Capers" or Carnival Capers for your ship either here on Cruisemates or on the net you will be able to see the drink specials and daily events to keep you busy.

Come back here and write a review of your cruise when you get back.
