Bike on a cruise
 
I noticed a man carrying a bike off the ship assuming that he was going to go biking on the island. I was wondering what arrangements can be made to take a bike on a cruise. Does the bike have to be kept in the cabin or is there storage space for bikes on the ship. Thanks in advance.

It would have to be kept in your cabin - you probably saw a crew member with a bike. I have seen that too and that was my assumption.

Bonnie,
That person you saw with the bike, could of been a crewmember?? Not sure the policy for bring bikes, but I would think it would be easier to rent one on an island or do a biking excursion?

I'm almost positive that anyone you see with a bike is a crew member.

This is from Carnival's site, but I think you'll find it on all cruise lines:
