Usually they have a cocktail party about an hour prior to dinner and usually (but not always) of formal night.. They serve drinks and snacks. They give away some gifts for most cruises, furthest traveled ect........ It's fun and hey - it's free drinks!

This party is usually held on the first formal night and is held just prior to dinner. The attire ranges from semi-formal to formal. Carnival serves various appetizers, including meatballs, mini quiche, won tons, mini egg rolls, and chicken strips. They also have servers carrying trays of various drinks. You can also go to the bars where the drinks are being served and order drinks directly from the bartenders. They're a fun way to get a start on your partying for the night and meet some fellow cruisers.

It's called the Repeater's Party on Carnival, and it takes place on the second formal night. The first formal night is always the Captain's Cocktail Party where you can meet the captain and have your picture taken with him if you like. They serve drinks and appetizers for everyone.

As you enter you are asked to give your invitation to a crew member at the door. They then enter all the invitations in a drawing for an expensive bottle of champagne. It's not the cheap stuff that they give away for everything else. The band plays and you can dance if you'd like, and they play a video explaining the history of Carnival and how it's gotten to where it is.

Dusty, you'll be able to bring in your friend if you want, and you don't need to make special arrangements with anyone. Just bring her with you and they'll allow her in. It's not that big a deal.

the invitation left in our room said you could bring a date. it was actually addressed to our teen daughter, but my hubby & i went instead. we really were not past guests at the time, but didn't realize she could go due to her age. it's actually for any age i guess, b/c there were even young kids there. of course, they had punch, not booze! i tend to think that our whole family could have attended, but the kids probably would not have been interested anyway. they did have a live band playing a variety of music.

Free drinks ... hors 'doeurves ... live band ... dancing ... and a free bottle of that el cheapo champagne to one lucky past guest. As for attire, you'll see everything there ... from dress-up to deck clothes. It's a good time not to be missed. And, as always, bring your own fun!
