Cruise ship company Carnival (NYSE:CCL) will be reporting earnings tomorrow before the bell. Here's what to look for.

Carnival met analysts' revenue expectations last quarter, reporting revenues of $5.41 billion, up 22% year on year. It was a mixed quarter for the company: While the key volume metric of passenger cruise days unfortunately missed, Carnival still beat analysts' revenue expectations.
