Thanks Luci, it's good to see your back! You have so much valuable information your a cruise expert, that you can help a lot of people here. Thankyou Marty also for the cabin info, I might even try the top bunk one night just to compare with the sofa bed. I'm actually excited about trying a new cabin catagory now! In the future I'd like to try an aft balcony, and a french door cabin they have on some Carnival ships on the lifeboat decks. I hope our shower is ok, and our ride is smooth. We once had a storm at sea and it was actually exciting watching the waves splash our windows and the lightning, though I took an extra dose of Dramaine that night!
