So far all the cruises I've seen are using the "people to people cultural exchange" category. So tours are about history or meeting local people, touring local businesses, etc. A day at the beach does not count.
I'm pretty sure that visitors will be using #5. That's how all of Carnival's excursions are classified. CCL usually overnights, which works out for people who want to see the sights. The people to people activities are usually 6 to 8 hours in length.
