Carnival- liquid Creamer? and Formal night?

Recommended Posts

Hello! First time cruiser here! My husband and I will be sailing on the Carnival Sensation Sept 6th from Miami to Key West/Cozumel

I have two questions......Does anyone know if I can bring on board the little liquid cups of shelf stable coffee creamer?

Also, what night will be our formal night? I was told could possibly be our night in Mexico but since our sailing has the Cozumel plus and we are slated to be in Mexico 12pm to 10pm I thought that would be unlikely?

Thanks in advance!!!

Why would you want to bring your own creamer because the ships have their own non-dairy creamers and they have half-n-half for your coffee. But, it's your trip and you can bring it if you want to.

 

Usually dress up nights are on the 1st & last at sea days. I doubt that they would have it on a port day. not enough time returning to port until dinner.

I also LOVE the French Vanilla and Irish cream(yum!!) coffee creamers BUT I'd worry about HOW too pack them (perhaps, in metal crush proof containers ??) because IF something happened ?:eek: It definitely would be a MESS ! I think the carry-on would be the safest. At lest YOU are in control of said bag till you're safe in the cabin.

I use ziploc freezer bags. They are heavier weight plastic and typically have double ziplocs.

 

And I double bag anything that would be a real mess.

On several cruises, I have taken the individual sized liquid hazelnut creamers in their original box and put it in my checked bag. I've never had a problem with the creamers breaking during the flight. More recently, I have switched to the hazelnut powder creamer that's in a plastic container that I put in a gallon plastic bag, and it goes in my checked bag. The creamer works just fine in my coffee and there's no worry about it spilling during the flight. I take a couple of small plastic bags, and each day, I pour some of the creamer in the bag and take it with me for my coffee.

I also like the hazelnut powder and will mix it with the original. I just wish they had the powder in Irish cream flavor, I've tried the dark brown liquid but it's not quite the same.

You leave Key West at 1:30 pm so that will definitely be your Elegant night. You leave Cozumel too late, and the next night is the last night, which is never the Elegant night. EM

I wonder what the Customs officer would think if, when he opened you suitcase, he was greeted by a gallon bag full of white powder?:evilsmile:

(Not to worry though - they would test it before coming after you)
