My apologies for being behind in my podcast listening, but over the weekend I heard the episode where Dustin took the DCL trip with his roommate. Throughout the podcast, several remarks were made implying that Carnival Cruises are where you want to go for wild singles partying, doing body shots, etc. I know that Carnival has had an incredibly difficult time shaking that reputation, which apparently was true many years ago, but it simply isn't true today. We have cruised 3 times with Carnival and found them to be extremely family friendly. Our only other cruise was with Norwegian and we were very disappointed. Carnival beats them by a mile in food, service, entertainment, etc. We have never cruised with Disney and I'm sure it is top notch, but Carnival is far cheaper, much more affordable for most people. The kids' clubs are great. Our daughter always had a terrific time with them. We even met some DISers as a result of our one cruise. When we got home, I made a cruise photo my sig here and someone recognized us. We were on the same cruise together and she actually had pictures of me because her husband and I had played a trivia game together. So please stop the Carnival bashing. They are not the party ship they were 20 years ago. They are a great choice for singles, couples, families, whoever.
