you are killing me with those pool pics....our next cruise is to Halifax so no pool time there--have to wait til Dec on Enchantment!
we cruise Royal Carib & Celeb so can't say for sure abt Carnival--when I look through the brochures the decor to me is a bit garish- I think Royal has the nicest ships--lots of brass & glass & great layouts with lots of places to have fun... In honesty though, the food while good is not excellent cuisine & the demographics of the pax lately are a bit differnet than in the past. Last trip, on Brilliance, the rap music being played in the shopping area really annoyed me. Over all though I think the descriptions above are apt--you will have fun but not a party til you pas out experience (IMHO)
