Default Anyone ever sail the week of Thanksgiving?

For this cruise we booked that week and I was wondering if they acknowledge the holiday on board at all?

We sailed out Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) from New Orleans on the Sensation (2004). There was Turkey and dressing for dinner, but nothing much else special...as best as I can remember. Still a nice day.

But then any day on a cruise is a nice day!!

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

We were also on the Sensation Thanksgiving 1993. They offered a traditional turkey dinner, but I don't recall any other special activities. We were in port at Grand Cayman that day too!!

Have a great cruise,

Have cruised with Carnival 3 times during Thanksgiving week. They did have a traditional turkey dinner but not much else will remind you that it's Thanksgiving. Not that that's a bad thing. Have fun!

thanks for the information. I was hoping for the dinner, but hey as long as I don't have to cook or clean up then it's a treat either way. Sounds like they do the turkey which is all I really want anyway so YIPPEE

We've cruised several times over US Thanksgiving, and it's always a good time. A nice family and friendly atmosphere onboard, and not as tense as I find Christmas cruises to be.

They do offer turkey dinners, and trimmings... but oddly when we've done them we've seen very few people ordering the turkey. Perhaps it's because of all the variety available on the menu.
