I would like to say that I just returned from my 2nd Carnival Cruise (Victory & Paradise) and I was always able to find deck chairs no matter what time I went on deck. We always found 3 together for my daughters & I.
The cro Carnival crowds were a great bunch of people on vacation having fun! We did not encounter any drunks or loud room parties. Both cruises were a delight from beginning to end.
I'd sail Carnival anytime!
