This is our first cruise, and we don't really fly much either. We are driving down from Fort Worth to the Celebration July 26 in Galveston. Does it matter how big your carry-on is? I have a little rolly small one, that would be good for carry-on, but I didn't know if Carnvial is picky about particular sizes or not? It is just your standard looking carry on size. Can anyone help? Thanks and Happy Cruisin' Ya'll!!
I found this on the carnival site:
For security purposes, Carnival limits the size of hand-carry luggage to 11"X 17" which is the dimension of the opening of the X-ray security machine (similar to those at the airport); there is no measurement for length as the hand-carry luggage will lay flat on the conveyer belt. Luggage larger than 11"X 17" will not be permitted through the security machine and must be checked-in with a curbside porter. Once on the ship, the luggage will be delivered to the guests' stateroom by 7:00pm that night.
