I have ask my travel agent, who specializes in cruises only, to never never every booked me on a Carnival cruise again. We had sailed other line before and certainly others after and I understand your reason. Our mistake as well, it was spring break and a brawl would have been an improvement. One cabin of four young men got so drunk and stick we didn't see them the rest of the cruise. The ship had propulsion failure. We were standing on the balcony and dodge a cocktail glass dropped from above. We were told NO more times than we can remember by staff and room steward and also where to get our own ice for the cabin. Please give Celebrity or Princess or NCL a try, you deserve a second chance to enjoy true cruising.
