Shouldn't trust them and have avoided their cruise lines for years as they'd poisoned me with bad fish years ago (anitbiotics several months - never sued but probably should have). Risking one more time July 21st - 28th with my youngest in university before she uses her summers off to wrap up school.

What's the best disposable cell to use on the ship (track phone, net 10, etc). Best wifi for laptop when abroad (Belieze, Carribean)?  Anyone else going with their kiddo(s) on this date/ location?  Paranoid about taking Carnival too?  Thx much for the "heads up" on BEST cell /portable wifi signals on cruise ships - much appreciated!  Linda :)

WiFi is s a univrsal standard so any good wifi adapter will do, or take a cheap tablet with it buit in; about as cheap. The ships have Wifi and a computer lab.... internet is about $0.75 a minute so beware. Some cafes onshore will offer free WiFi.... check

 

Phones... depends on actual ports of  call....   some Caribbean Islands require a world standard phone (eurpoean) and roaming charges may apply and be expensive. Digicel have cheap cell phones and SIM cards for GSM phones.

Just returned from a 7 day on the Carnival Valor out of Perto Rico. Was reduced price and excellent vaue for money, plus it's a great way to check out a p[rposed new sailing area (sailboat) cheaply. Not for Everyone depends on time ans actual cruise. Need more shoplace on hot mail.

I always look at reviews on trip advisor before booking a holiday. Gives you a good idea what a place is going to be like. I've not been on that cruise ship but I have been on a few others and generally they are very strict with hygiene and food safety. I'm sure you will have a great time.

I've been on a few Carnival cruises and they have all been OK but 5 days is about all I can manage. An ardent yachtsman. John

I've taken that particular cruise out of Houston and I had no problems whatsoever.  That vast, vast majority of cruises are very good experiences for people.  Wishing you lots of fun.  Bon voyage.
