For a first-time cruiser, all questions are good questions.
I travel with a group of interracial and biracial couples, singles and families. Our group has included African Americans, Caucasians, and Asians. We range in age from teens to 70+. We include married couples, families, and singles.
Some of our group have cruised on Royal Caribbean. They have not had any problems on that cruise line either.
My wife and I are from different backgrounds/races. We have never had a problem on Carnival. Nobody in our cruise group has encountered any problems. We have always felt welcome.
I have seen Asian guests on every cruise I have been on. Some cruises many, some cruises fewer.
You will notice that the crew on most Carnival ships is from around the world. On a prior cruise, our waiter mentioned that the crew came from 48 different countries. They all cooperate and work together to make the cruise enjoyable for us guests. I wish that the rest of the world cooperated the same way.
I love the diversity the ship offers. So go on your cruise and have a good time. Don't worry.
