Look through the pictures that were taken of you on the ship before the last night of the cruise, otherwise, there's a large crowd to fight through on the last night.

Sleep in, order room service for the continental breakfast and then head to the late breakfast (my wife's choice). Wake up and have the early served breakfast in the main dining room, come back to your stateroom, take a nap then wake up and have the late buffet breakfast (my choice :) )

If you can carry your bags on with you, I would recommend this over having the bags delivered. We like to do this so that we can unpack quicker and get out an enjoy the daily cocktail special and hit the Burger Bar and enjoy the delicious food.

Wear a watch. Take a power strip because there is only a spot for one item to be plugged in at a time. There is a outlet in the bathroom but its built into the vanity above the sink and faces down towards the ground so gravity will not let you keep something plugged in for long.

On the final day you can go to the lido buffet and have breakfast while waiting to get off the ship. if you take your time and have breakfast and get off the ship at about 10, quicker through customs and parking lot. You do not feel like your getting the bums rush to get off the ship.

To get to the Serenity deck go out the back of the Lido Buffet and go down a flight of stairs.

Try the Mongolian Grill - I think you can get this on many Carnival ships now - by far the freshest food available - you choose what you want, they cook it right there. Caters to allergies as well, which is a great plus.

Cayman Islands - You do not need to book an excursion here - take the tender and walk - you can grab a taxi or even a mini bus and they will do a tour for you! We had a blast!

Any time dining - great option and the seats are located by the windows! Lido deck - get there for about 10 - still ample time for grabbing a seat. Chef's Table - if you like food, this is for you!

If you like the outdoor activities without a crowd - get to mini golf at around 8ish - that goes for the ping pong too - no one there, nice and clean and not too hot yet!
