Carnival wouldn't stop there on Christmas if there was nothing to do. Some private tour operators and shops will close, but for the most part things will be open, tours will run, etc. For most of the locals the quest for tourist cash outweighs taking the holiday off.

kagmarshall- Like Dave said.. most likely, if the cruise ship ports, the locals will be their trying for your tourist cash.

But if you want to know for sure, their is a "contact us" link on the website here and you could write to them and ask if the falls will be open. That way you will know in advance and can plan accordingly.

Some outside tour operators are in fact closed Christmas day for the falls tour. You can also check with Carnival's Shore Excursion Dept. The email address is: shoreexcursions@carnival.com

No, they shut the falls off on holidays.

Sorry, I couldn't resist!

To be safe on holidays, I'd book all my tours through the cruise line since they will be running.

kagmarshall...

we haven't put the deposit down yet but we are going on that same cruise. It seems like a great itinerary. Is this your first? Email me if you want any info. It's our 11th. I'm SURE all excursions and businesses will be open and available to take US dollars!!

hi steve

I used to work for carnival many years ago

So now that the children are growing up 13, 15, 16 we decided to start taking cruising vacations. We have only been on the glory easter 2006 loved being a passenger for a change. Any way looking forward to our chistmas cruise. Good look with your booking.

Booked and done!! There's only one problem..it's depressing to go to the Carnival webpage for the HEY STEVEN ONLY ____ DAYS UNTIL YOUR CRUISE and see over 200!! Patience!!! By the way...anyone ever eaten in the supper club? Is it worth it??
