Tips for using Carnival Fun Times to plan cruise days?
Here are my favorite tips for using Carnival Fun Times to plan the cruise:
1- Start Early
Start reading the Fun Times as it’s distributed. Evening or early morning is my favorite time with my morning coffee.
It’s a great way to get a head start on planning the day’s activities.
2- Highlight Must-Attend Events
I use a highlighter to mark the high-priority events, whether a show, themed dinner, or any special activity. This ensures you won’t miss out on the highlights of your cruise.
It’s my favorite and always working tip.
3- Consider Dining Reservations
As I already mentioned, a few restaurants on cruise ships may require a reservation.
If you plan to dine at one, checking Fun Times early is recommended to secure your spot for a hassle-free culinary experience.
4- Balance Activities
Always keep a balance between different activity categories. Whether it’s dining, entertainment, games, or relaxation by the pool, manage your time to experience various activities during the cruise.
5- Check For Updates
In a few cases, there may be updates or changes to the eMagazine schedule for various reasons.
Throughout the day, refer to Fun Times for any changes, helping you adapt your plans accordingly.
Is There A Digital Version, And How Are Updates Provided?
Yes, Carnival Cruise Line also offers the digital version of the Fun Times through the Carnival Hub app.
I prefer reading the newsletter instead of accessing it from the app. But you can also have it at your fingertips.
The changes in the physical newsletter are done by distributing the new ones among the cruisers. But in the digital one, Cruise Hub supports real-time updates that automatically change the schedule, activities or dining options.
Panorama January 20, 2024, Fun Times
I’ve mentioned a picture of 2 days Fun Times of Panorama on January 20, 2024. With these pictures, you can clearly understand what the newsletter looks like and what’s inside it.

A Carnival Fun Time is delivered to your stateroom daily. If you want a copy, consider heading to the guest services desk or the common areas.
Is Funtime Newsletter Free?
Yes, the Fun Time is free and compulsory. It’s given to the guests to plan their daily cruise activities, including entertainment and dining options.
Does Carnival Hub App Requires Internet?
No, Carnival Hub is operated on the cruise ship’s WiFi and doesn’t require any internet package. Just turn on airplane mode and use it.
What Does Page 5 And 6 Contains?
Pages 5 and 6 feature some Fun Facts and important details of any Port Scheduled for that day, including Port Emergency Contacts.
Hopefully now you should be all cleared about the Carnival Fun Times newsletter and how to use it for planning daily cruise activities.
