Carnival This was another great cruise that I recommend for almost anyone. Since it was a last minute deal, the price was fantastic. You really can’t beat a four day cruise for less than $200 after taxes and fees. A November cruise is great because there were very few children and teens (big cheer!), and it wasn’t oppressively hot. The ports were great and the ship was in superb condition. 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 already booked on the Carnival Glory for a seven day cruise in 2007, so I will hopefully have another positive review then.
