Looks like we will not have a Meet & Mingle party. Just checked & we are 13 short: "The current party tally is 12. If the party reaches a tally of 25 Carnival Cruise Line will hold a Meet & Mingle party onboard!"

Looks like this board never attracted a lot of cruisers. The other unmentionable site has over 230 users I think, but mostly excited posts about the last few count down days, how much drinking will be done, ... As for our family of 6 adults & 2 young boys, six ready to board for clean fun on their first sailing!

On elegant night there will be some dressed to th 9s, tux & evening attire. I used to wear a suit & my wife in a smart dress or pants suit. Now we go smart casual and fit in with the majority of the diners, I do sport a tie but no jacket.
If you are comfortable with going out on your own in port, go for it. We have done so in all 3 stops we are making this trip. This time we will do the ship's excursion at Grand Cayman, mainly to get priority on a tinder, ship does not dock there. This, by the way is our favorite port for this cruise. We will probably book with independent operators at other 2 ports.
