Carnival College

In Bahamas, Carnival, Carnival Cruise Line, Cruise on September 8, 2012 at 5:11 pm

We are very much in the middle of the ocean. We finished our day today at around 6:30pm. My bunkmate was very tired as she had been traveling for 30 hours before coming here, as were a few of the boys. We all ate dinner and then the boys went to the crew bar for a beer, my bunkmate went to our room, and I went to the gym. It’s harder to run on a treadmill on a cruise ship than one would think. Our orientation was great, they told us all the important things we need to know! Tomorrow we get our uniforms! Yay!! After the crazy Disney training I went through last year, the Carnival look will be easy. They even let you wear bracelets as long as they aren’t massive and dangly! Don’t get me wrong, it’s still fairly strict, just not as strict as the land of The Mouse! The whole layout of the ship is pretty amazing. There’s a whole crew deck where most of us live (the really high up officers live on a higher deck) and have our own dining rooms (mess halls) and lounge etc. We even have our own cabin stewards!! So once a day someone cleans our cabin, takes any dirty uniforms to be cleaned, and replaces our towels, etc. We pay him $15 every pay period (every 2 weeks). Totally worth it in my opinion!!

Today we are docked in Nassau, Bahamas and we can find free wifi by the docks so my bunkmate and I are reveling in the free internet. Then we have more classes in the evening and a hospitality class. Carnival College is a lot of fun so far!! I’m going to try to do as much blogging as possible, but the internet is not great (and very expensive) on the ship, so I’m writing daily and then posting whenever I can!! Our uniforms are actually pretty cute, we look very sailor-y. I like them!! I won’t be able to post photos just yet, but I think that when we’re back in the US on saturday I’ll try to get some photos up of our cabin and the ship and our uniforms!!
