TV is iffy a best. Sometimes you get 3-4 US Stations, sometimes you don't (Reception is the problem). They do run 3 movies every day, staggered throughout the day. The only constant thing on the TV are the Videos (of events on the ship) from the day before. They also start up another channel with videos from earlier in the week about halfway through the cruise. Their's also a channel reporting temperature's, sea condition, location of ship.
No Newspapers on Board, other than Carnival Capers which is a guide to the following days activities.
