So I have read about this thing called a cabin crawl. What is it? How do you become part of one. Also, so all ships have a time for CC members to get together. I started the roll call for our cruise but I'm sure there are more that aren't on the roll call. Just want to meet other people who love cruising as much as we do. Thanks for any information!I wondered about this too! I imagined it was something that "groups" travelling together did...Our cruise is 3 1/2 wks away and our roll call only has 4 ppl so far!
We were lucky on our last cruise and had a GREAT roll call. Our Roll Call arranged our Meet and Greets, not the ship. We had 3 on our last cruise. The first one was on the Lido deck at sailaway. The second one was in one of the conf rooms (Carnival took care of that for us) where we all met and had a gift bag exchange. The last one we met for drinks in one of the bars. It was LOTS of fun and we have made lifelong friends!!
So far, on our upcoming cruise in November, we have like 4 people too. Hopefully it will get more active as the cruise gets closer!

Once, on my way to a dream, I got lost and found a better one.
and if you only and a few in your roll call, it may not happen
What you want to do, is make plans to meet each other say on the morning of the first sea day/ Lido aft area is good.
That would be your Meet and Greet.
If you want to do a Cabin crawl, you need people to volunteer their Cabin.
If you can get an inside, an Ocean View, a Balcony, an Aft Balcony, and a Suite...then you will have a good crawl in terms of seeing other types of Cabins.
On ours each Cabin offered snacks (some went to the Buffet line and got stuff) or a drink (Smuggled booze I am sure) Or Champagne, because we all got some for being a CC group.
and we started at the inside Cabin (Mine) and Ended in the Suite.
It is very fun.
We also did a poker run once with it, everyone put in a dollar, at each Cabin, the host would have a deck of cards,
so you would take one card from each cabin host. at the end, who ever had the best hand won, all except $5, that went to the worst hand.
Another Idea, is a Bar Hop...this way you get to see all the lounges of the ship.
we played a trivia game at each, not everyone bought drinks, but plenty did.
But with the Trivia everyone was involved and having fun drink or no drink.
Here again, you don't have much time. someone needs to make up the trivia games and lead the thing.
Sports bar, sports Trivia, and piano bar, Music trivia and so on.
Hope you have a great cruise!

You can do a search also & when you get the Island Hoppers you can see what we are doing & how. Briefly
5-7 cabins offer to be hosts & serve refreshments & snacks & have a deck of cards from their hometown, state, province country.
Participants sign up (ours was $5 per person)including the hosts
Hosts go first from cabin to cabin then 20-30 minutes later the participants go in groups of 5-10 depending on the number of people you have, to each cabin lowest to highest (predetermined) & get a card have a drink a munchie & gab for 5-10 mins then move on as a group.
Best poker hands win (the pot divided up)best 3 hands all done at the last largest cabin.
Organizer collects the money, hands out the prize envelopes & prints out the poker hand score sheets for cabin hosts to mark who picked what card at their cabin & sign it.
Just that easy
