Boasting balmy breezes and jumping to a bouncy calypso beat, Nassau promises sizzling fun in the sun. Half Moon Cay is Carnival’s private island and is an idyllic, sun-drenched hideaway where you can play in the turquoise water and enjoy the white sand beaches.

As you pack for this cruise, take the following tips into consideration.
- Please install the Carnival HUB app — a must-have for iPhone and Android devices — prior to arriving at the cruise terminal. Once you are on board, connect to this app using the ship’s free Wi-Fi. For a $5 one-time fee you can text with other guests on the ship and NOT incur cellular at-sea charges from your carrier. The app also keeps you up-to-date on ship events, lets you view dinner menus and tracks your expenses going to your ship and sail card.
- Carnival provides beach towels, so save your luggage space.
- Bring your own tumbler for your favorite beverage or water.
- Bring spending money for souvenirs at the ports of call.
- To use debit and credit cards, please call your bank and let them know you will be out of the country.
- Ironing stations are available on each floor of the ship.
- Bring and use ear plugs if nighttime noise bothers you.
- Check with your cellphone provider for plan options while at sea or in any ports.
- There will be one formal dinner; cocktail dress attire for women and sports coat attire for men. The other dinners will be casual dress.
- For the first day of the cruise, pack a small carry-on bag with your travel documents, a change of clothes, a bathing suit and/or workout clothes and any medications you may need. This will allow you to enjoy the ship while you await the arrival of your luggage at your stateroom.
- Want to pamper yourself at the Spa? Make your appointments when you first board the ship; popular treatments and times fill up quickly.
