james22 - The gang is right on the money on this - the ship you are on will instantly become your favorite -the minute the first libation hits! But we all have memories of a favored few that we hold dear!Certain ships have an endearing ambiance beyond any humble words I can write..and each for a different reason!
A good clue is how many repeat passengers certain ships have. Already a few have been named -you might just consider giving each one a try! They are all wonderful!!!
My favorite - the Mardi Gras has long since passed to Carnival heaven -so...I just have to keep looking!! I know...it is a tough job..but somebody has to do it!!! (sigh)
