Travel Tip

Airlines have gotten better at ensuring your luggage arrives when you get to your travel destination but sometimes things go wrong. It is always a good idea to travel with a carry-on packed with some essential clothing. That way, you would have something to wear in the event your luggage is delayed or lost.

Have a safe and enjoyable Carnival 2018!
