What's on "must try" list for your next cruise?


Recommended Posts

My husband and I were talking about trying some new things on our journey cruise on the Breeze this November. We have cruised on Carnival many times, but we tend to gravitate to foods and activities we are familiar with, so there are  many wonderful offerings that we have never taken advantage of. I am so excited by reading others' lists as it gives me ideas for what to try on our upcoming cruise! Thank you!

I want to try all the extra restaurants at lunch on the Horizon. We haven’t cruised in forever, and besides the steakhouse, I can’t recall having access to the bbq, Italian, wok, taco bar, or even guys. I’d also like to try brunch. I want to do the sky pedaling thing, putt putt, and I might try a slide if it’s open enough (I don’t like 100% enclosed tubes). I feel like it’s been so long everything is new, so I want to do it all 😁

Things to try for our next cruise?

 

Cheers! We typically don't drink that much, but between frozen drinks, coffee from the coffee shop, milk shakes, the occasional soda, we are pulling the trigger on it. So I guess Alchemy is also a must try.

Just off the Vista this weekend. First night we were exploring and went up to Serenity deck late at night. It was almost pitch black dark up there no lights and very windy. My hair blew in my eyes and next thing I know I walked into something and fell forward. Turns out I walked into, tripped, and fell onto a big square daybed. It was funny at the time until the next day I saw the big ugly bruises I had on my legs from hitting the wooden frame. The bruises got uglier every day and I had brought nothing but sundresses and shorts. Be careful up there at night!

Why is it embarrassing? Folks are on vacation and want to do other things. Having a base of appreciation for service people is one thing. People aren't required to stop their lives and say thank you over and over.

I never thought this was for non-vets to come and fawn all over vets. This is for vets to say hello to each other and enjoy some camaraderie. I'm happy you don't want to attend since it's not for you.

Bring your own sugar and/or waffle cones for the soft serve machine.  So much better than the cones Carnival provides. 

Put vanilla soft serve into the lido OJ or lemonade, or make a root beer float if you have a drink package. 

Visit the "secret decks", particularly during embarkation and porting. 

Try a new food you normally wouldn't order in the MDR.  If you don't like it, send it back for something else.  Or order 2 off the bat.  Order a 2nd entree as your appetizer or vice versa.  Get more than one dessert.

I appreciate this topic.  I'm cruising on the Legend in November and hope to do some of the things that are listed.  One I want to do for sure is the water slide.  I've never done one and I'm 58 years old.  Should be fun!

Two years ago on the Vista, this 53 year old tried the waterslide for the first time.  I had so much fun, I did it over and over.  (By myself because my group of ladies didn't want to do it.)  It was alot of fun!  Hope you enjoy it too!

Not sure if I missed a comment about adding peanut butter to the chocolate melting cake or the fact you can get a banana split from the kids menu at dinner.

 

saw this on last cruise and everyone in eyesight asked if they could also have these!

Where/when is this?  🤤

In my experience it's on the last sea day in the buffet. The chocolate isn't very good so I no longer stand in the huge line for any of it, but if you've never been, you have to try it.
