Tips on planning a successful family cruise from Carnival


If you’re planning a family cruise, Carnival offers some great tips to ensure you and your family get the most out of your trip! Try to arrive at the cruise terminal around 1 or 2 pm, the lines will be much shorter and you’ll likely be able to board quicker. When planning your day, make sure to check out the Fun Times daily newsletter, which lists all of the various shipboard activities for the voyage, including schedule for games, trivia contests, comedy shows and more (as well as newsletters for Carnival’s children’s programs- all fun, supervised and free!). The shore excursion team is another great resource to figure out which excursions are best for your family and learn all you need to know about various destinations. Oh yeah- and don’t forget to take advantage of the bottomless Bubbles program- which offers unlimited soft drinks at one all-inclusive price!
