Default No more "Capers"!

Just returned from "Carnival Liberty" and the daily paper is no longer the "Carnival Capers". From now on, it's going to be "FUNTIMES". It's laid out a bit differently, and frankly is much easier to read, and find the activities of the day, and the times of those activities. We were told that last week was the first time "FUNTIMES" was published aboard "Liberty", but that it was here to stay. I suspect that it will replace "Capers" across the entire fleet.

"SKY"

Wow..I think the idea of making it user firendly is great, and long overdue, but the name change is puzzling to me, when it is sooooo identified with Carnival, and, branding is so important..that said, I'll get over it

Default no capers?

Cruise on Fantasy in November, brought some home for a friend to overlook for the cruise on the 18th of February. Now I got something to look for when sailing on this cruise. I guess I will have to study this news on another level

Just got home from our B2B on the Ecstasy. The Fun Times are what we had on our cruise. Guess it is fleet wide by now. It is easier to read, and not so much non-essential info. Got stuck in Dallas last night. Lots of wet snow. Made home though. Resting up for work on Mon.

Oh good. When I saw the title I thought it was gone. But it's just revamped. That is great. Although INHO I do think it's wrong renaming it.
