Hey! I am going on my first cruise May 7 and would like to know the must things to do onboard ship and anything you can tell me about the Carnival Fantasy ship. We are leaving out of New Orleans and cruising to Cozumel. It is a 4 day cruise and I am very excited!!!
Don't try to preplan what you are going to do on board. One of the joys of cruising is being spontaneous. You will get a "newspaper" every day called the Carnival Capers, which will list all activites, shows, dining, etc. Just pick what you want to go and go do it!
However, one thing heavily overlooked is the free sushi bar, usually from 5-6 p.m. (If you like sushi.) But, the first thing we do on board any ship is walk around and explore it, so that we have some idea where things are.
Have a blast!
Not a chance on the fugu. Besides, no matter how tasty, even in Japan, in restaraunts with highly trained chefs who only do that particular dish, a few people a year die from eating fugu. Even minute particles can be fatal. Cruise lines want you alive to cruise again.
