That "sea legs" feeling after you return is pretty common, and won't last very long. Thanks for the information. "Shout" is a GREAT show, and It's sad that you missed it. Good excuse to book again I guess.
We have a family reunion cruise every year, and lots of times the grand kids, or cousins come along. The kids are usually having so much fun with the ships activities, (club 02, Circle "C" etc.) that we have trouble dragging them away to come to dinner. Carnival really does have excellent programs for almost all kids.
