Excursions

 


At the beginning of the cruise, Carnival will have an informative talk about all the ports of call and excursions. I highly recommend attending it. One thing to be aware of is that if you take an excursion through Carnival and it's running late for some reason, the ship will wait for you. If you're not on a Carnival excursion and you miss the ship, it's going to be an expensive mistake -- and we'll catch up with you at the next port! ;o)

PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO
There are (39) excursions that you can take in Puerto Vallarta. Wow! I've done the "Mismaloya City Tour" and Jeff has done the "Off Road Bicycle Adventure" (both were good).
