it depends on how long you are going to be in port. And don't forget...if they say the ship leaves at 4, that means you have to be on board at 3:30, because at 4 they're pulling away! And I think you wanna save at least SOME time for just walking about the town! Usually best to do only 1. And most of em are at 8 or 9 am anyway.

It can be done as I have done it. My two cents of advice would be to make sure that both excursions are booked through Carnival to insure your timely arrival to the vessel. Otherwise, you take a large risk of not getting back to the ship on time, especially if it is a port that you have to tender back to the ship. You are on a great ship and I hope that you get everything you desire out of your vacation.

The times the excursions leave can change without much notice too. That could easily put a kink in things.

travel dancer, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

I would concur with the good Dr. and Larry.

The ship will wait for ship sponsored excursions.

Welcome to the world of cruising
Great choice I think carnival is the best cruise line for your starting cruise.
As for the excursions here are my recommendations:
• Always book, specially since you are new to this world, thru Carnival more expensive but you can feel secure since if the tour delays the ship will wait fro you if you do it by yourself there is the risk of losing the ship and they don’t wait for anyone…
• Do one excursion not for the time, for you… I always book only one excursion so I have the time to do some shopping by my own is more relaxing. If you do two excursion most of the time you will be with the stress of losing the other and will spend most of your time like during traffic rush hour.
• Remember the most important rule of cruising HAVE FUN!!!! If you are rush thru it you will not enjoy your cruise and the very first cruise is the best one believe me you will like some time to adapt to this new way of life LOL.
