I'm also planning a cruise for my 9 & 12 girls and myself. I have it narrowed down to 3 options with the ships being Carnival Triumph or Elation. My question is I also plan to spend our time together and not putting them in camps. This is my 2nd cruise, their 1st. I'm torn between choosing a 4 day with a cabin with a balcony (really cool!) or going for the additional day w/ just regular oceanview. I'm also having trouble deciding between ships: ports are same.
Any suggestions for helping with these decisions? I haven't asked them b/c I wanted to make this a surprise. Maybe I should just ask them?
