Default PLANS FOR THE NEWEST CLASS OF CARNIVAL SHIPS

Since Carnival has the rep. for "fun ships",does anyone know if we plan to install any rock climbs, wave pools, or skating rinks like Royal Carb.??

Looks like you have to hit these like a 50 person excursion on a 2700 person ship, thanks, because that wave pool really was a callin'.

Don't they nickle & dime for many of these eccentric amenities( rock walls, wave pools, ice rink)? At least on Carnival there are few things that are extra. Supper club, coffee shop,ext

I was on the Explorer last year, and my kids loved the ice skating rink, rock climbing wall, and inline skating. There were plenty of opportunities to use these facilities, and there was NO charge.

There are no extra or hidden charges for the rock wall, ice skating etc.

Our kids enjoyed ALL the extras on the Explorer and it wasn't that big of a deal to many that the hours are limited. I'm sure it has to do with staffing other places on the ship since many of those people do other duties as well.
