OH YEAH!!!!DO I need to bring a Formal Dress ( like a homecoming Dress)???? HELPPPPP ME PLEASSEEEEE!!!!!
Hey Carly. A cruise is fun! There is sooo much for you to do if you are a social person and not shy! Carnival Pride is a great ship and I know others have been on her and can tell you more about the ship.
I have been to Mexican Rivera with Carnival too and it was a blast. And you being 19, you can drink and party all night! You don't need to bring any fancy dresses, just something formal if you prefer. Just bring some warm clothing incase the weather turns bad, but bring tee-shirts, shorts, tanks, and don't forget a swim suit!
I hope that helps. If you have any more questions AIM me at daswimma100.
bring anything u would normally bring on a vacation to sayyy the beach? and yes if you're gonna bring formalwear it should be like a homecoming dress....and about flying...i love it but u shouldnt worry about anything...youre on vacation!
Hey!! You're going on the same cruise as me, Carly! You have to calm down. Cruises are supposed to be fun, and the plane ride is nothing to be scared of. You should bring a camera on the cruise. That's what I'm doing (so if you a short guy always carrying an Olympus camera around, you know it will be me.) You aren't going to be bored. As long as you participate in some of the activities, you'll be fine.
Cruises are so much fun...don't worry. Bring an underwater camera and don't forget lots of sunscreen. I've never been on Carnival but there's always a lot to do on the ships. Bring a formal dress for the Captain's dinner and thats all ya need; maybe a nice skirt or 2 for dinner on the other nights.
About the plane......bring gum for you ears on take off and landing and you'll be fine.
Hope this helped!
If you have any questions IM me at rciprincess214
Yeah dont worry at all!
I was on the Pride and its amazing... Let me know if you would like to see some pictures... Its a fairly new ship, so you have nothing to worry about. As for meeting people, you will mostlikely meet lots- no matter how shy you are. Trust me, YOU WONT BE BORED!!!
Ask anyone on this site- I doubt they have ever gone on a cruise and absolulty hated it!
Oh and as for the plane, I dont care for them either- but think about how much fun it will be when you finally do get there!
i think going on vcations and to strange places nd not knowing what to expect is the best part! cruising is so much fun! its like a floating hotel.....i might think tgat like u might feel left out or alone on the cruise because of the size but there is so many things to do and so many people! just bring shorts, capri/floods, flip flops!!!!!, bathing suits, and lots of shirts! dont be a fraid to over pack =)
