I was on the "Big Red Boat" and Carnival at least 4 times. Unfortunately, who knew I should be remembering dates??!! I never guessed that it could get me into platinum status with Carnival now.
I think it was about 15 years ago that I did that cruising. At least 3 times with Carnival Im pretty sure.
Yes, the price was right. 2 for 1 $99 fares plus port tax and free on your birthday, you just paid port tax.
After that I found a job and never knew until this past year that those cruises on Carnival could have helped me now.
It was not the best ship, but the shows were still good.
