Carnival Cruise Tips

-Parking is located on 23 33rd street (lot A or B). Fours days of parking is $45 dollars and goes up depending on the amount of days (leaving from Galveston, TX).

- Check in a few days prior and print all documents needed from your cruise account.

- Put your own luggage tags on. Trust me it will make your check in faster.

- Download the Carnival hub app ahead of time. You will thank me later! It is amazing!

- There's no iron in your room

- There's only one outlet

-Bring your own toiletries

-Bring your own towels

-Use the towels in the room for outdoor activities ( you will need to use them for the seats outside)

-AFT= back or the boat

-MID= middle of the boat

-FWD= front of the boat

-The "fancy" food in the dining hall is nasty

-Buffets and Guys burgers is good

-There is unlimited ice-cream

-The juice is nasty. It tastes like it is mixed with too much water.

- If you want anything other than juice, tea or water you must purchase the "bubbly package" or the "unlimited beverage package".

-Bring your own blanket and pillow if you have sensitive skin.

-There are hidden adult 24 hour “hot” pools.

-The comedy show is funny. If you volunteer they give a lot of prizes! They have a PG version and rated R.

-Bring your own iPad or tablet with pre downloaded movies (the tv in the room has like 5 channels)

-Most kids stay in the pool for hours with no potty breaks equals one thing.... Which can only mean one thing... URINE!

- Brunch is really good. I recommend the bagel and salmon with cheese eggs or the pancakes with hash browns/ bacon.

- Cons: the pools are always full. Even the small adult whirl pools.

- Be friendly you may get lucky and make friends with others that have a beverage package 😏

- Room cleaning is an extra change. Put the Snoozin sign out and you can avoid this!

- Be mindful it's a family cruise... leave your thongs at home lol. You will be surprised how many I saw.

Hope this helps! Have an awesome summer!
