Never been on a cruise, looking to take my teen boys this spring - Have researched Carnival and prices look good, but would love suggestions for which ship, what there is for the teens to do (they will be 14 and 17) Suggested itineraries? Suggestions on rooms? Off shore excursions? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!!!

Always have taken Norgeweigen cruise but My son and I took a Carnival cruise yrs ago The only thing I can reccomend if your boys drink soda you should look into a soda pkg.for them
Also depending where your going the excurions are always more money from the ship When you dock at ports there are always tours taking from the dock If you do it that way make sure you sign up with a
few couples saves money that way and its safe too But we have taken them that the ship offers too

My husband and I have been on 5 curise and really would love to another one soon

4 . "When did you book the excursions? (if you did any?)"

Still havent clicked the button to purchase the cruise -- wondering if the excursions come up at the time of booking or after? What about excusrions from the dock that arent part of the ship? any info on those?

Any suggestions on rooms/floors/etc? Definitely doing a balcony, but other than that??

Even if you want to book them thru the ship when your on board you will have plenty of time too

We went on ours April of 2015
What a blast..we have all teens here to...they loved the free 24 hour food room service-teenagers can never get full!! Also the dive in movies at night..to the teen club,vide arcade to making friends..they enjoyed some of the shows,they love the entertainment in the open area at night from karaoke,bingo to trivia and dance contests to pranks on guests..The mc was so amazing and so funny also could relate to all ages.
Hubby and I loved trying the different food places on board,the shows,dress up night,family time,alone time,the mc,relaxation,the fun,hot tub, casino,shore excursions..we are hooked!!! We also met a lot of great people.
We went on the carnival conquest..some shore excursions we did was zip lining across the jungle, they loved it.They recorded it on their go pro.plus swimming with dolphins and stingrays..a bit pricey but well worth it...we r planning our next one w extended family as we speak...u might want to book the more popular ones right away...sometimes they fill up fast or if u wai till u get on board they r full..I heard a bunch of people complaining..
There r still things you can buy on ship,they charge everything to your room key..so we always set a budget and prepay..for pictures,duty free shopping on board etc...
Also soda is not included or alcohol however you can buy a soda or Alchol pass(my husband is a soda addict so his unlimited soda pass was I believe 50- dollars)...water,juice tea r free...we stopped in key west as our first port, so a bit pricey but a lot cheaper than the ship so we bought a variety of drinks back to the boat...we also saw people boarding w drinks water etc....
All in all we feel it is a great value for a nice vacation..feel free to email if you have any questions. You will love it!!!Gale
