8 Tips for Your First Carnival Cruiseby Kayla Becker | February 04, 2017
1. Do your research.
There are 25 ships in Carnival’s fleet, and they’re not all created equal. Check out what’s offered on your ship before you board, so you’ll know what to expect. The new Carnival Vista is decked out with an IMAX theater and an onboard brewery, for example, while an older ship that’s more budget friendly will have fewer bells and whistles.
