Pack light; you don't need much. Bring a outlet strip as there is usually only one plug in the room. Book a gourmet restaurant one night! Read the nightly/daily bulletin for the next days activities. Take lots of pictures on your camera as the photos cost you a lot of dollars. Be nice to the staff and they will be extra nice to you. Bring a few good books (or download them) and relax while you watch the ocean go by. Bingo is $$$$$$$. People watching is cheap!

Hi Chairman,
There are many great excursions in those ports...What kinds of things do you enjoy doing?? Best bet, go on the Carnival web-site and read through all the different tours and figure out what is best to do at each one...
