Get ready to have a great time. Port Tampa embarking and disembarking were a breeze. Prepandemic.

Or any ship...do your research before sailing and know your ship and destination and by all means be cognizant of whom you share your cabin with or invite along. Being in close quarters is not the same as visiting someone's house that you leave after visit is over. My 75th was very heartbreaking and you don't turn 75 but once in your life. ... but loving the ocean..and Steel drum music...I still have those memories and those if being with my youngest same date birthdate mate, my little cousin and the rest of the Harris cousins. Those in my cabin was friends of a friend...

Allow plenty of time to eat as the dining areas were packed and tables could be scarce. But plan accordingly and enjoy the fine food!

I personally would go on board. I believe that now there are water slides so that is more fun, but the ship is very small and not very fun

Pay a little more for another cruise line

It’s a smaller ship, so it isn’t as crowded, and it’s easier to get around. Also, spring for the suite and stay on the Grand Deck. Can’t beat the views!

Get the WiFi package. You will thank me

Buy water bottles and do research on stops where you need to get Zone Numbers for boats to take you to shore.

Don’t do it. The boat is old and smells horrid.

Double check your purchase cart. I bought a few before the cruise that were not delivered. Carnival made it right but it took a while.

Get a porthole cabin for the price of an interior cabin basically

Make sure that you bring paperwork. Our itinerary changed after we left. Guest services was super helpful in allowing us to update our third party excursions. We also recommend that if you're going to grand cayman or any port that requires tender boats that you book an excursion thru carnival as they get priority for boarding.
