I don't think I could have said that any better myself! I agree with everything you said 100%!
We leave on cruise #6 just 20ish days after you get on Breeze
Carnival is the only line we have been on and we love the more laid back, be yourself, type of cruise. After all, Carnival are the "Fun Ships"
and we wouldn't want to be any more upscale than what Carnival already is. That is NOT who we are. As far as cruising on Carnival is concerned, our opinion is, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". We currently have no interest to cruise on any other line. Every time we go on a Carnival cruise we feel even more "at home".
"Tingly" moments? Hmmmm, I would day the first sunny day I get chance to sit on our balcony and listen to "Mexico" by James Taylor on my iPod (Even if we're not on our way to Mexico
I would say the best feeling though is day one when we get on the ship and order our first umbrella drink at the bar! At that moment every worry disappears, work and any problems are all forgotten and I say to myself, "Ah, the vacation starts NOW!"
