Default Questions about Entertainment aboard?

I'm taking a Carnival Cruise in a few months and I've got a nagging question. I know there is plenty to do aboard the ship, but what if you just want to stay in your cabin for alittle piece and quiet and watch TV. What kind of TV do you get out in the middle of the ocean? Also, are their newspapers on the cruise ships or do you have to wait until you go into port to pick those up?

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.

There is a 'newspaper' each day. It is an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper that has all the headlines and short stories. You have to go to the Purser's Desk to pick one up. Or if you tell your cabin steward at the beginning of the cruise, he would probably bring you one each day.

My suggestion to you is to take a long a bunch of your favorite magazines, a good book or two, and a traveling backgamon set. This way you will be well prepared to vegg out at the pool or in your room. While on the Triumph a few weeks ago, at all times there were a great amount of cruisers absorbed in a good book with a delicious drink in hand or fast asleep with the great lido deck music in the background and of course always a bunch of people up and dancing. As far as t.v. CNN once in awhile and some reruns here and there.

They also have internet stations on board for $.75/minute or $.99/minute, depending on the ship yuo're on. You can get the news that way, or read or send e-mail. It's cheaper than calls back from the Islands. Mel
