Have you ever traveled somewhere and wish there were things you knew beforehand so you could get the most out of your time? Recently I went on a weeklong retreat at sea and it took place on the Carnival Cruise Ship Paradise. Even though I have cruised many times before, it was never on a Carnival Cruise Ship. So you don’t waste time on your next vacation, I want to tell you how to get the most out of your time on a Carnival Cruise Ship.
How to get the most out of your time on a Carnival Cruise Ship so you can maximize your fun!
For people who want to stay connected while at sea, Carnival provides a discount if you pre-purchase your Internet plan. I recommend saving time and money simply by visiting the ‘Manage My Booking’ tab on Carnival’s site to buy a plan that will keep you connected (as best as possible) for the whole cruise.
Know What’s Happening on the Carnival Cruise Ship
Download Carnival’s HUB app before you board. This app will be your best friend and will definitely help you get the most out of your time on the ship and allow you to experience all the fun.
To use the app is free on board, and you will be able to see what’s happening, food and drinks, deck plans, check your account balance, view photos and chat with other guests ($5.00 fee).
You won’t have to miss any of the food, fun, events and information the cruise has to offer thanks to this app.
How To Spend on the Ship
Get the most out of your time on a Carnival Cruise Ship by not stressing over money. Sign up online, pre-cruise, and activate Sail & Sign®, which is Carnival’s cashless on board credit program. This will allow you to charge onboard purchases and gratuities directly to your account without having to carry and fumble for cash or credit cards around the ship.
Enjoy a One-of-a-Kind Culinary Experience
Since you are on vacation, why not enjoy a unique and incredible culinary experience while on a Carnival Cruise Ship. Make a reservation for The Chef’s Table, which includes an exquisite multi-course private dinner hosted by one of the cruise line’s master chefs along with a private champagne reception plus a personalized tour of the galley.
I unfortunately had to miss this delicious experience during my recent trip on the Carnival Paradise, but check out the experience firsthand from my friend Michelle of Honest & Truly.
Visit Multiple Islands
Take advantage of the fact that you are cruising around multiple islands and book an excursion or two directly through Carnival. Let Carnival handle all the planning so you can enjoy the entire experience.
During my recent cruise on the Carnival Paradise, a group of us went on a Catamaran in Grand Cayman for an unforgettable swimming with the Stingrays experience that I will never forget.
My friend Sharon of Cupcakes & Cutlery and I easily booked an excursion, pre-cruise, right on Carnival’s site for a champagne catamaran cruise in Cozumel. We had a fabulous girls day out and really got to experience Cozumel in an exciting and memorable way.
