Royal Caribbean would be my next choice also. Carnival I never wanted to go on that cruiseline.

Then another Carnival ship, the Legend had to cut their cruise short due to 'technical problems' causing the ship to not have good propulsion.

When news of this broke, it came out that the Carnival Elation had the same issue earlier this month.

This all following the high drama of the Carnival Triumph that went on for days, the fire on the Splendor a couple of years back, and of course, the Costa Concordia that the Captain ran aground and then abandoned ship with passengers still onboard. (he 'fell' into the lifeboat and couldn't get out)

All in all, it's not a good time for Carnival.
That's not good. I'd be starting to ask questions if I was a Carnival shareholder or something. Maybe it's coming back to cost cutting on maintenance?

Carnival has really started to market itself here and now have sailings from here. I've heard it's more of a 'fun' or party ship so it's not something we are interested in at the moment.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited about cruising the Caribbean! Looking forward to meeting everyone! My husband and I (Tom and Pam) will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We don't have our stateroom # yet as we booked a GTY. This will be our 4th cruise, and definitely the longest. We would love to join the secret santa, but not interested in the fe.

So glad to have you join us! DH and I will be celebrating our 35th onboard! Ours is the 8th! This will be our 11th cruise, we are hooked but good! Can't wait to meet you! I think the Secret Santa sounds like lots of fun, but maybe we should call it Secret Mickey?

Welcome aboard. In case you didn't see it, there is a link in my signature to our website with info about the group. There is also a facebook group set up and you can find the link there as well.

Sometime in the next week or so I will set up a secret santa sign up on the website once I work out the details on how we will actually do the exchange. I am trying to avoid another group gathering.

Nice to have you aboard! I'm Angie and my main squeeze and traveling companion is John. This will be our 4th Disney cruise. We've been on about 25 cruises altogether with several cruise lines. Love cruising!
