Carnival's daily newsletter is being revamped to Fun Times. Read about it here.

Yes, John posted a sample on his blog yesterday. I can't say for sure that its much different than the capers were, it looks more like a little re-arranging and then a re-naming to me. I don't know why they needed to rename the Caper paper, but I guess they are pushing the "fun" image as far as they can and "caper Papers" seemed to imply something else???

We won't get to see one in person until June, so I reserve full judgment until then.

Well the current Capers is multicolored (or at least bi-color) I supposed they have color copying facilities on board. I wonder if the majority of it will be static (like opening times, food venue information etc) and they can then print that up in large quantity and only have to print the new/changing information portion on the ship.

And you just know it is going to be a long time before they stop referring to it at the Caper Paper....its like attempt to rename the supper clubs to The Steakhouse... everyone still calls them supper clubs....

They probably use shells that are pre-printed in bulk and brought on the ship. Good point Jim. Some of us have been calling them the Capers for so long it will be hard to change. I always save my originals in the cabin, then get a carrying around copy at the lido bar. It will be strange asking the bartender "do you have a fun time". I hope they still have the tear away "Today at a Glance" section.

Same here, I still call the Guest Service/Info Desk the Purser's Desk too. The renaming of the Supper Clubs to the Steakhouse has never caught on with me either.

Me too. I think they are going a little too far with changing things so fast. They should implement the new lay out first, then slowly change the name in my humble opinion.
