Default Specific Cruise Details

My wife and I are taking our first cruise on February 27 (Valor), and we have yet to receive any specific details regarding our cruise such as what specific entertainment will be offered, how to make reservations for the upscale reataurant on-board, the dates of the formal nights, etc. Is this normal? We are one month away from the cruise and are getting concerned that we missed a letter or were somehow forgotten. Any help would be much appreciated.

That is normal. You don't really find out that info till you get on the ship. If you want to know in advance, as some people on here who have done your same cruise. Have a great time!

They should include an information packet in your Documents that will also tell you the why's and wherefors and other general information. As to any questions, we right here can answer many of them. For reservations you need to either go to, or call the specialty resteurant and make them yourself. Do so as early as possible to ensure you get the time and day you want. The fromal nights are often the second day and the next to the last day but much depends on the intinarary and days at sea etc. This information will be posted in your "Carnival Capers" the daily newsletter that you will recieve in your cabin the night before. The entertainment will also be announced at that time. You will have two productions shows with the dances etc involved and the other nights will have entertainers that are brought onboard just for their show as well as some things the CD might throw in, and a passenger talent show. There is other entertainment, games, etc all throughout the ship every evening and during the sea days all day long. The Capers will provide you with the time schedule. Old capers do not help much as the are, and do change somewhat every cruise.

24 cruises and counting!

Once you get on board the ship, you will receive a Carnival Capers every day that have the full schedule of everything going on that day (including entertainment and formal nights.) On our 7-night cruise on the Victory in December, formal nights were the 2nd and 6th nights (Monday and Friday) (not sure if this is typical of all 7-nighters). You will not get this information in advance, so you didn't miss anything.

Can't help you with the reservations (the Victory didn't have this).

Why don't you just go to www.carnival.com and look there? If you go down to FAQ at the bottom of the home page there's loads of info or click on funships and choose your ship it'll show a lot more info.
