Question Quick Q's


I'm going on the Carnival Valor tomorrow (Dec 26 - Jan 2) and i got a few questions.

1. I'm kinda shy, but like to meet new people. What should i do?

2. Is there any special events that occur on New Years Eve?

Thanks Alot

Hi Andrew, welcome to Cruisemates !

The best advice is to just go up to people and introduce yourself. Do not miss the teen events on the first night. It's always awkward at first, but everyone will feel that way, not just you. By the end of the night and into the next day you'll most likely have a great group of friends established.

I've never been on Carnival for NYE but I have been on another cruise line. There will most likely be some kind of countdown to midnight, deck party, and various other things going on around the ship. I just got off Carnival Liberty and some of the crew was telling me how much fun NYE is on a Carnival ship.

Any other questions feel free to ask.

Have fun !!!

1. Reaffirming what Rebecca said... You have to put yourself out there. Say hi to randoms... guarantee it will all work out. But you have to be willing to let go of the shyness. Remember that your experience is only a week long and its unlikely anyone will remember anything too bad (if you really mess up socially). Otherwise, once you start meeting people, you'll get into it and you'll be fine.

2. Of course! Can't say I've done an NYE cruise, but check your compass and the teen events and meet up with your new friends and plan something too.

Welcome to Cruisemates.

Go to the teen events at least the first night and just start introducing yourself to people. They also do some ice-breaker games.

I've only cruised during summers, so I don't know what they do for NYE.

And since you're on Valor, especially if you're from New York, check out the "Bronx Sports Bar" onboard (NY Yankees themed).

Past Cruises (all except one from NYC)
Carnival Triumph to Canada: August 1999
Carnival Victory to Canada: July 2000
Celebrity Zenith to Bermuda: July 2001 AND July 2002
Celebrity Galaxy to Caribbean (from Baltimore): July 2003
Voyager of the Seas to Caribbean: July 2004
Crown Princess to Caribbean: July 2006
Carnival Victory to Canada: August 2007
Carnival Miracle to Caribbean: May 2008

Staten Island Ferry, I mean what else in NYC is free?
