Question regarding excursions

Recommended Posts

This is going to sound silly but I have never been on a cruise before so I really don't know. I booked an Excursion through the Carnival website for a snorkeling session. My question is, does the Excursion company provide things like a mask, snorkel, and fins? Or is that something that we have to purchase and bring ourselves? It does not say either way on the Excursion description

Agree that if it is a snorkeling excursion they will provide whatever equipment you need to snorkel.

We are water rats so we always bring our own mask and dry snorkel. We know ours fit well and we don;t like wet snorkels, too easy to swallow water. FYI, a dry snorkel has a little ping pong ball on the top of the snorkel and does not allow water in.

I would be very leery of using equipment that you have no idea on how they clean it

I am a senior who only snorkels once in a while on a port visit.

I have used equipment provided by the tour company each time and have lived to write here about it.

I have no desire to buy and bring my own equipment. Up to you what you choose to do but you won't die or get sick from using the equipment that is provided for you!!
