Ally turned 10 on this cruise and we gave her sign in/out priviledges and she pretty much had the run of the ship. Did you feel comfortable with your son having that independence on Carnival? I know there are a lot more singles/ partiers/ couples, etc, on Carnival than there are on DCL so that's why we felt pretty safe with Ally and her friends roaming around the ship......
Yes I did feel ok, I was hesitent at 1st since there wasnt any bar codes on them to scan, so when he left his club that was it. Unlike Disney (thanks for reminding me Kara) when he checked out then they would at least tell me via the pager, P has left the kids club getting pizza then going to the room (which gave E and I a good heads up ), he knew the rules, be where he told us he would be. LOL. He made friends so there was a group of them always together, even some girls.. lol. And when we checked in J they took your SSC (for regular play time or pay for play time) and wrote your number in a "book" and you literally signed them In and Out. They were quick I will say and not many kids at any one time so the process was fast unlike disney where I had to wait for eons at times.


That is so sad!!!! Sail Away really got me excited and totally into vacation mode. Did anyone wave at you with giant "just got caught in the heavy magnetic door" gloved hands?????
HA no but some people on the Oasis did.. so lil hands on a big boat lol

I agree with what others have said. Disney is all about kids and we definitely pay for it..... Just not on an hourly basis.....
I will say J did enjoy it and it was more structured after the 1st night, they didnt play movies everynight thank goodness or I would have been really mad. Heck I would just lock him in our room to watch a movie if so

Oh yea!!!!!! It almost feels better to be bad than to "legally" bring on the booze on DCL, right????
yes and no.. we were happy (and proud they made it on, but were scared to buy too much incase it got taken then pissed we didnt buy more when it did. Mickey I thank you for letting me take on a bottle per day to contain my needs lol

Our dinning room was the Posh (Spice?)
So did you eat in same dining room every night?
what would I do without you Kara... Yes Same Dinning Room Same Table Same Servers, same seats (no they didnt make you sit that way my family did LOL). I like the excitement of Disney moving to different dining rooms. I cant talk BAD about Posh spice but would have been nice to see Sporty once. They do have a Steakhouse for $30 extra per person. We opted out this time. But the table next to us went one night and they said it was to die for. Live and learn, said you cut it with a butter knife. Its not adult only kids can go but they say the service is even slower then normal and they dont speed it up as its part of the ambiance.

So the kids WERE allowed to order from adult menu? We just read somewhere that DCL is the only cruise line that allows that.... hmmmm.....
Oh ya, and vise versa, E orderd chicken strips as an appy from them one night.

I remember back in the "day" when cruising first became a big deal, that it was all because of the food and the shows...... So sad the shows aren't all that - however, it saves that crazy running from dinner to show to clubs, etc. What is it? The stilleto 5k?
ya there was no 5k on this cruise.. except for one time back to port.. but it was a flip flop 5k.. but Im skipping ahead....
You crazy Californians!!! We were in the same part of the ocean the same week and I never even pulled out my sweaters!!!! Silly west coasters......
hey anything under 75 is cold for us lol time to breakout the hoodies

But if it were still 1980 the food and shows would be better.....
ya but then our pics with the hair and clothes wouldnt be lol

Poor Freddy........ So far he's just inexpensive, but is he "cheap?" The ship looks great though, how big was that one in comparison? More more more!!!!! I'm jonesing SOOOOO bad and I've been on websites every night trying to decide do we cheat on the mouse next year or wait two years so we can afford the Mouse again?????
It felt the same... to me. but apparently its a tad bigger.

Enjoying the TR. We're going to be booking a Feb 2012 trip on the Carnival Magic in a couple of weeks.

I've heard more good than bad about Carnival, but it's nice to hear from someone who is not a Carnival "fanatic".

Even though Independence was a LOT bigger it actually seemed very similar to DCL since it is set up similar to the Magic/Wonder. We adjusted to it almost immediately!

Post Sunday 3-27 Sea Day

G,T,L
(Gym, Tan, Lunch!)

Well 630 am wake up call got hung up on and I passed back out. Which by the way isn’t a cute mouse telling you lots to do.. No just some automated chick voice not really that thrilling. I will give a point to Disney but either way wake up calls are no bueno lol. I had the coffee and juice being delivered between 7-730am and at 730 on the dot I heard a knock at the door. I jumped out of bed, and got it. Took my coffee and Danish out to the balcony and enjoyed reading my book (Nickolas Sparks, The Guardian) listening to the quiet ocean and 4 cups of Kahlua infused coffee with French vanilla creamer that I bought at Publix .

Its not a vacation until you start your day with a coffee and Kahlua. (Thought of you every morning El!)


I let the boys keep sleeping, don’t they look so peaceful


So once I was fully awake from my coffee intake I decided I better hit the gym. Normally I go walk around the ship and just take pics, but I had been working out hard prior to us vacationing to lose 30lbs (yea me! Still lots to go but it’s a start) So I packed my workout gear and wanted to stay on top of my workouts. I changed and off I walked to the gym/spa on deck 12 (we were on 6) you would think that would be workout enough.

It was a small gym and packed.


8treadmills, a couple elliptical, some weight machines, a whirlpool and then some cycles but you have to sign up for the class to use those. I hoped on the tread and set off to do my 3miles. The gym is at the front of the ship so you feel ever move… and the tv screens are like 5inches from your faces so as your watching the water then the tv your moving side to side.. Its horrible lol Me and the dude next to me kept laughing and grabbing on to the rails. Best part is you don’t have to put and incline cuz when the ship goes up on a wave its like and incline then when it goes down its like your running down hill LOL. If you ever want to see how it feels, just get super drunk, put on a blindfold and go running around the block.

See I have proof, well I was in the sauna here. It has a great window view and is super relaxing.


Once I was done I went back to the room to shower and get ready, E decided he was going to go running at the gym. Told him to watch out for the hills lol We missed sit down breakfast so I woke the boys up and we went to the lido deck for buffet breakfast. I will give Freddy a point here. As there are multiple buffet lines 2 on each buffet with 2buffet so 4 lines total (go to the ones in the back they are always shorter) where the Magic is only 2lines 1 buffet.


I had an omelet and some potatoes… not a lot and it was pretty fast to get and not to packed. But the outside deck by now was already packed around the pool. Chair hogs get there early! Once we were done eating P and I dropped J off at his club for 2 hours of fun. Camp Carnival for the 6-8yr old were having Mummy Wrap and paper ball war. Basically kids team up and they wrapped a member like mummy’s using TP. (sure hope Tito doesn’t use that in our room after LOL) Then Head to Head Challenge.. Sorry I forgot what J described it as and when I asked him now he couldn’t remember LOL. After we dropped him off P and I went back to the room to meet up with E. He finshed his run, showered and changed and we went to find the "secret deck" on 7. Ended up not being too secret and not to hard to find. Sort of miss seeing a hidden Mickey here.


We saw something in the water at the front of the ship come to find out it was whales but we were never close enough to get a good pic, just splashed in the water.

Guess a whale doesn’t “splash” though huh?


Oh ya they gave P this bag and some headphones that say Circle C (too bad we didnt have an ipod to go with them LOL)


If they had some deck chairs there it would be nice and quiet to read and relax


P had highlighted his Fun times guide to do the Digital scavenger hunt , Shout about (scream your answer to trivia ya that’s productive how bout we raise a hand LOL) video game free time (wow free this ship knows what that is?) Hip hop dance class, & Karaoke Craziness but he ended up wanting to stick with us (another point for this awesome kid) so I talked E & P into going to the movie quote trivia outside the casino bar. We did pretty good got 15 out of 20 correct. It was all ages too so P knew some also. But were totally beat by a team that got all 20 so no Gold Ship on a Stick for us (that’s your price for winning most games or participating in thing a 24k gold plated ship on a stick LOL). (stold this one off google)


When that was done we went to find our pictures from last nights dinner. They don’t have any package deals like Disney does (1point for Mickey) so its an arm and a leg for each picture. We got the embark pic and then the pics from dinner I hurried and took pics of them, then we trashed them cuz they werent that that good. P and I have this down to a science he’s my look out. E ditches us as he wants NO part in breaking the rules LOL. (oh sure but stuff some rum in a shoe and Im the bomb LOL)


Got to admit this is a cute one but not for $9.95


OMG totally forgot, best part is they have a pirate come around for pics on the 1st night, omg he was the cheesiest thing I have ever seen costume and make up looked no more then put together for $5, heck J could have done a better job.

The four of us cracked up so hard at dinner last night at him.


He’s no Capt Jack that for sure.


Anyhow pics, they had a deal buy a 6x8 get a photo book holder for $5 instead of $8 with purchase. So I went for it.

After that went up to get J from Camp Carnival and who do we happen to see… FREDDY. I begged P to take a pic and he said NO. I was upset as he promised on this cruise he wouldn’t be like the last where he never wanted to take pics. So I said fine whatever.. And just as I was about to click it… guess who popped in.


We headed back to the room and got our swim trunks on and headed out to catch the hairy man contest. They should have called it the hairless man contest, as most the guys had NONE and they even had a young kid in there it was funny as heck though, kids were loving it

As we walked around a bit to find a lounge chair, we spotted Kid Rock lol


Eventually I found 1 chair hog less so I jumped on it and later the lady next to me left and E came over to sit down from being in the pool. He even rode the slide but I missed him. So yes Jen adults can ride the slide. We laid out a bit, got some bbq from the outside buffet, hamburgers, nuggets and fries. We had packed a bag with some sodas and our rum runners. Got cups and ice and had our self a party!


Not a drink of the day but it will do


This kid made his own slide on the bench (watch out for splinters lol)


Eventually after my nap I needed to cool down so I got a DOTD a Goomsbay Smash


At 3pm they were starting a weeklong Whodunit game. Like mystery theater. Then each day you would find clues in the Fun Times and at certain shows etc they would throw them out. I really wanted to do it.. And what happens I slept through it.. AND my cruise meet. I had been chatting on Cruise Critic with a handful of people (nothing like the DIS, hence why Im doing my report here LOL) and we decided at 2pm to meet up in one of the lounges and one gal who had cruised a million times had a direct email (stalker.. Or maybe it was like a direct line to Batman?) to our Cruise Director Ryan (Gopher oh wait that was Julie on Love boat right Kara? Lol) So I never got to put faces with usernames together. Eh I wasn’t too bummed though. Over a yr we only had chatted enough to make 10pages. To me that was month 1 on the DIS for our cruise meets thread LOL. Oh well I was more thrilled I had napped and already was half way tan to looking like Jwow! (towards the end of the cruise you can call me Snookie after all the food LOL)

E later moved to the rocking chairs on the bottom deck to cheer on his Longhorns (sorry I should crop that guy from behind E but had to show the reverse wedgie LOL)


To watch some NCAA basketball they had on the Iron Man Screen.


The boys and I went to play a round of mini golf. 1st we had to check out the clubs and balls. Back to the cabanna to sign in

My lil Tiger Woods


Ya I got to play 9 holes of golf in the middle of the ocean


And Ya I won… not to gloat or anything.. What Im competitive I don’t go easy even on my kids


Freddy got MAD points here. We all loved playing putt putt at sea 3 points for Carny since Disney doesn’t have anything like this (well on the OLD ships that is)

Have you been hanging out in my neighborhood watching me run???? Especially after my kahlua and coffee in the morning????

Guess a whale doesn’t “splash” though huh?


Seriously? WHALES in the Caribbean???

Oh ya they gave P this bag and some headphones that say Circle C (too bad we didnt have an ipod to go with them LOL)


Hey, all they get on DCL is a certificate at the end of the week......



Ship on a stick!

He’s no Capt Jack that for sure.


You got that right!!! Cause Capt Jack is REAL!!! REAL hot!!!!

After that went up to get J from Camp Carnival and who do we happen to see… FREDDY. I begged P to take a pic and he said NO. I was upset as he promised on this cruise he wouldn’t be like the last where he never wanted to take pics. So I said fine whatever.. And just as I was about to click it… guess who popped in.


OK, so if you wrap his, what are those things, horns? Anyway, wrap them around like Princess Leia buns (no not THOSE buns! Geesh!) and you've got a red/white/blue Mickey!!!!!!

We headed back to the room and got our swim trunks on I hope you wore a top with YOUR trunks..... and headed out to catch the hairy man contest. They should have called it the hairless man contest, as most the guys had NONE and they even had a young kid in there it was funny as heck though, kids were loving it

Looks like Kid has been cruising for awhile and NOT going to the gym, eh?

OMG golf at sea sounds so awesome!!!!! Yup, Freddy deserves those point, even without the Princess Leia buns (again, NOT THOSE BUNS!!!!). So far sounds like a great cruise!!!!!

We'll be playing golf next May 6th on the Dream- if you would join us, we would have the perfect foursome, we could play for tequila, LOL!! I'll be playing on Explorer with the kids, though, in August- I'm really looking forward to that. The pic with Freddy is a little Creepy, no offense- not the boys, just Freddy- I LOVE that you saw the whales, though- I can never figure out why we don't see them on a cruise- with all that deep ocean around! I have seen them on a small boat in the Caribbean while we were out with Thomas (Helloooooo Thomas! )
but never on a great big ship.

Their Pirate is soooo not Capt Jack!! OMG- you really all do look like you were laughing at him!!

Great update- I'm glad you're having so much fun!

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Hey I have one of those highly coveted, hard to get, solid gold plated ship on a sticks Got it for Name that Tune. I also was on the winning team for Family Feud, but they only had one trophy for the team so I took a gold plated medal instead so I could have one of each. Cheesy but very fun.
