Welcome to Cruisemates, Mcdowell.
My first piece of advice is to call a cruise travel agency, pronto, not dealing
directly with the cruise line to book. This way you will get all the info and guidance, to get you on best Carnival ship for you & your pals.
Also, make sure you are factoring in all the things that will not be included in the initial cruise cost. I hope you all get hooked! Let us know how you make out.
Trip, with her book & tea!
