We have a sail date of May 18, 2019, so still quite a ways out but just curious, when does Carnival usually post the excursions, FTTF, etc?

I think spring of this year is a reasonable guess. I believe they negotiate annual contracts with the excursion vendors.

I am checking daily for our April, 2019 cruise, but don't really expect to see anything until March/April.

I am also checking for April 2019- thinking they may offer them one year in advance possibly.

I've generally seen them come out about 6 or 8 months prior to the cruise.

We booked in December '16 for our cruise coming up here in April and the first excursion showed up almost exactly 1 year before the cruise - but it was the only one for a few weeks and then there were 20 or so for that port (Grand Cayman). Excursions for Limon didn't start showing up until the end of July.

started at over 500 days until cruise and now we're down to 37 and these are the longest 37 days in eternity apparently.

I'm booked on a cruise in December and the excursions are already available. Maybe different for different itineraries, or just because we are within the 1 year window as was mentioned.
