Carnival This was another great cruise that I recommend for almost anyone. There were
some things that I missed from the older ships, but there were many more things
that I liked. We all came away happy and full. We had great weather the entire
week. I can’t say much for Nassau, but it’s nothing that Carnival can control.
The other two stops were awesome, and everybody had a really good time. I liked
the ship, and would definitely recommend this cruise. There are some people who
judge Carnival harshly for being the “Wal-Mart” of cruises. I prefer an analogy
that I read in another cruiser’s review; that going on a Carnival cruise is like
going to your friend’s house. The ships are nice, but not super fancy, so your
kids can run around without you worrying that they will break something. The
crew treats you very well, but not like royalty. The food is great, but tailored
to the masses. I like that! I’m a blue collar kind of guy, and I don’t want to
have to wear a suit on vacation, or worry about using the right fork at dinner.
If you are looking for an ultra premium cruise, then Holland America or
Celebrity Cruises can give you that. If you want a high value, reasonably
priced, fun and relaxing vacation then Carnival is for you. I am a confirmed
Carnival fan, and I plan on taking many more cruises with them. We are booked on
the Paradise in February 2008 and the Carnival Freedom in December 2008, so I’m
sure to have more positive reviews then.
