Default First Time Cruiser with a Question

So i here there is something called a caper and i think this is a list of events on the ship. Is that right? Does it cost extra for the events listed on the caper? And is there a difference between a Caper and an Itenerary? Thanks for the help.

The Caper is basically the daily newspaper on the ship. It tells all events for the day, meal times, shopping items and information about your port of call.

Cruise lines usually have a new letter that is placed the night before in your cabin that will outline the next days events and if you are arriving in a port there is usually information about the port. Included also is arrival time and most importantly departure time from that port...what time you must be back to the ship so that is doesn't sail without you

Hi
Yes bingo is extra. The capers will be put in your mail box beside
your door or in your room every evening.
They also have a meeting before every island that you should
go to so you know whats going on at each island and they will
tell you all kinds of info needed if you are on your first cruise.
please ask questions so you dont miss out on anything fun.

Have a wonderful cruise.

HI AT,
If there is any activity that does require a fee, it will be stated in the caper. Most things are free, but some may have certain operating times, etc.

I believe the capers are placed on your bed when your sheets are pulled down. Either way, you will have it the day before..

Capers are very helpful especially at days at sea.. you'll never have to be worried about staying in your room having nothing to do just check your new caper each day and it will tell you the event what time the event is and where it's located. there are so many things your caper will have including things for teens, adults, and kids.

Also for teens and kids check at there clubs.. usually there papers like the capers that list every event for the entire cruise that the kids or teens can particpate in based on there age!!

Have an a-m-a-z-i-n-g cruise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
