Rides Carnival Cruise Ship
|WHY Cruise? First off, livestock guys and gals need
down time to let their muscles relax and recooperate. BUT, even when you
are on vacation at home your still carrying haybales, buckets, checking
on livestock (worrying) etc. Cruising allows your mind to almost
completely turn off both the mental and physical stress of tending to
livestock or ranch duties. The only thing you have to do is relax and
enjoy yourself cruising to your destination where horses on the beach,
jungle and ocean await you. These horses are well cared for with onsite
vets who take care of them like family.
Secondly, people seem to naturally bond by sharing an ocean going experience and by day 2 most everyone is greeting each other in hallways, nodding to one another in restaurants etc. Speaking of FOOD its everywhere and ALL FREE! Even room service is 100% free. All types of deserts and healthy non spicy food as well as spicy international foods. Their is also lots of entertainment on board inlcuding a world class comedy club, dance clubs, video arcade, Las Vegas style shows, track, putput Golf, Shuffleboard, basketball courts, 14th floor viewing platform, 7 HOT TUBS, large pool AND a long windy SUPER SLIDE! Unlike other ships this one you can walk all around the outside of the ship on many levels of balconies. Speaking of balconies superb dining on the back of the ship off either of three large dining balconies. NOTE: if you like playing cards and dominos we have a group that meets 6-8PM before dinner to play games on the rear of the ship left balcony. Usually only a few people are back their and it is very quiet being an OVER 21 only area.
|If you read the NO PASSPORT statement required above it will make
more sense when you look up in the left hand corner and see the card
attached to the lanyard. This is the card you get at checkin. It is
called a SIGN and SAIL card. You open your cabin door with it and it and
only it can be used for purchases on the ship. Dont worry, ALL FOOD,
water, assorted juices and tea are free on the ship but Beer and Soda
are extra and requires the attendant to swipe your card. You can also
use this card to get stuff at the ship store such as toothpaste, suntan
lotion, jewelry etc. They have some really nice duty free stores on
board. The sign and sail card keeps you from having to carry around cash
or credit cards as most people are in bathing suits so this is a really
secure way to have cash but not worry about losing it.
Speaking of Lanyards (see red card holder upper left) at checkin all you are given is the card and most people are scrambling to find a lanyard when they get on the ship as most people bring their own. If you want to have a Horse Riding Lanyard like the one above it helps you find other horse folks on the ship and allows them to spot you as well. Plus tons of other merchandise and info shown further down this page can be grabbed by reading the ON BOARD CRUISE ASSISTANT listed below in the cruise dates section. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LANYARD: You might think its no big deal and you will just carry your card in your pocket but once you get on the ship a strange thing happens... gold, silver and diamonds stop being the talk of the ladies and are replaced instead by WHAT lanyard your wearing! If you have something unique everyone wants to know where you got it, what you do etc. It becomes a great conversation starter to meet new people. PLUS this will introduce other people on the ship to the Horse Riding Excursions and get more people to ride with you. The more the merrier on these jungle and beach rides.

|ON BOARD CRUISE ASSISTANT|
|YOU GET Custom Cruise Ship Map - designed by and for our
group it shows the main areas that me and my buddies use the most while
on the ship and how to get to those areas quickest. A small easy to use
cheat sheet that is VERY helpfull when you need to find your way to the
evening dining area for example and cannot remember if Inspiration
Dining room is your assigned dining area or the Imagination Dining room
and how to get to either. Most people are fumbling around the first few
days trying to figure out the lay of the land but you can expedite your
daily routines with this easy to use route map.
Your Own Cruise Assistant - if you have questions about the ship, activities, things to do, how to get to them or want advice on offshore excursions I will be on the ship to answer any questions. I travel on this specific ship many times each year and enjoy passing on travel tips unique to this ship such as use buffet dining in rear of ship and carry your tray through rear doors and you will find yourself dining 8 stories above the ocean on a large relaxing balcony that most dont figure out till their second trip on this ship. Additional tips such as in progresso go to the red sand bag tent when coming off the ship and ask for Maria. Her girls give an amazing massage on the beach under a canopy for just $20 an hour! HORSES? Fantastic horse rides through the jungle in Cozumel ending with meals provided in cabana on the beach OR you can choose horse rides on the beach, in the ocean or take a horse drawn carriage through the streets of Cozumel. TONS of horse related things to do in Cozumel.
THINGS TO DO in MEXICO - once on the ship you may want to attend the excursions presentation showing you all the excursions available plus a desk with tons of color brochures to pick and choose your day trips when the ship docks at one of two ports on this trip. The info packet we send you will contain all the options and which ones we recommend and why. Although they are ALL well managed, very safe and a blast we prefer things like horseback riding through the jungle and massage under canopy tents on the beach. Your welcome to go with me on any these trips knowing your getting the best bang for your buck. While I recommend doing all these trips once you only get a limited amount of time in Cozumel before boarding the ship to sail to Progresso therefore I give you the most detailed information possible to choose which horse events you want to do while in town.
WORRIED ABOUT BEING SEASICK? - I get a little motion sick doing certain normal things on shore so you can imagine the first time I cruised how worried I was about getting sick but was amazed cruising had no effect on me (other than relaxation). These ships are so HUGE that even four foot waves have little effect on them and most waves at sea are small 1 foot or smaller so 90% of the time you forget your even on a ship till you notice a window and see the ocean outside. Even if you are one of the very few who get seasick they have a tiny patch that is stuck behind your ear and the few who need this patch end up having a great time on the ship.
