I've been reading this board for about a week and thought it was time to say HI. First time cruiser going on Carnival Paradise Sept. 30th. Have really enjoyed reading all the advise from here and have learned alot about do's and don'ts of cruising. That's it for now, but be assured I will be lurking around looking for more advise!

Here is a link to a section that has tons of great tips for first cruisers, hope you enjoy them:
Well Candy, we welcome you aboard our ship! This is a great site to find pretty much all you want to about cruising. The staff is always available and willing to help answer any questions you have, heck, it's what we love to do when we aren't cruising! <G> You will love the Paradise! I have posted some photos of this ship in the photo gallery from a brief tour we took on her a few weeks ago. My best friend is the Shore Excursion Manager onboard that ship and you will get to meet her when you sail. Tell Tracey you read Cruisemates and that I said to treat you right! She is a lovely lady and full of great information.
