Try everything! Even if an activity doesn't sound that fun or like you'll fit it, go anyways. The crew makes everything fun for everyone.

Rent a golf cart at Catalina Island to get around, well worth it. But if you do, reserve it in advance. You'll get it for 3 hours vs 2 hours if you rent one on site. The extra hour will make the difference and you won't feel as rushed to return it.

Be sure to go to the Deli for a sandwich, good Pastrami. If you want to see more of the entertainment go for the early seating for dinner.

First day we waited in lengthy lines for the outdoor buffet, not realizing that through the doors were line-free buffet stations. After that, had no food lines at all. If you have kids, the Carnival Imagination with full water park, is definitely the way to go.

Eat breakfast in the main dining room. Food is fresher than the buffet and there was no wait.

Bring a warm jacket as nights can be a little on chilly side outside of ship.

Get to know the boat layout on day one. There are some elevators that go to all floors, others only part way so you have to use the stairs. Elevators are slow to arrive, so have patience or get some exercise and take the stairs!

The Pride Dining Room is excellent and the wait staff is awesome. If you're picky about your food, probably the buffet would not suffice, but I used it for breakfast and except for the greasy bacon, it was fine. I recommend eating breakfast and dinner only. The buffet is open for lunch, too.

Don't forget to bring your passport, driver's license, and minimal clothes only. You only need to carry your ship's card on you while onboard, leave your wallet and other important cards in the safe inside your stateroom closet.

Try different foods, foods that you would not normally get at home. You can always get something else.
