Default Oh my, I didn't know that when I booked!

Well, I just realized that Ash Wednesday falls in when I will be on the Conquest Feb 3-10. Feb. 6 is ash Wdenesday and we willbe in Montego Bay that day. I never thought of that when I booked, but someone pointed it out to me. It looks like the cruise will be extra special. I don't know if they will have a theme party or not to celebrate before we are all supposed to fast (ya right, me give up something for 40 days..NOT!).

Woohoo, I'm looking forward to the fun!!!!! I am sure Camp Carnival will do something special for the kids (my niece is coming with us).

I don't honestly think this will be celebrated at all, anywhere onboard. Why not just check with your ta, so you won't be disapointed. Not sure how they would do this with so many people with different religions onboard.

I agree with Trip.

Look at the silver lining, you will be on a cruise ship on Fat Tuesday!!!

You most likely will not "get" ashes, but you could begin Lent with making some small sacrifices during your cruise. Or, better yet, perhaps an act of kindness or two.

I agree, you don't have to fast from food. How about just spread some extra love in honor of lent.

It won't bother me at all if nothing is done. I am there to have a realxing vacation away from the cold, but it's a DRY cold, Canadian winter. As for the good deeds, I always behave better on the ship because Canadians are supposed to be nice.....I'm nice at home, but I don't tolerate some pan handlers or teens (who should have been drowned at birth) well at home..I can be rude, in a nice sort of way, at home.....
