Congratulations. It will be relaxing to know that you don't HAVE TO do everything the 1st week. You can see the shows at your own pace and participate in many more things. You'll love it!

Back to Back Carnival Valor in December! We have never booked 14 days before, I hope I don't get sick of it.
I am sure this far out, you have the same cabin for both legs. If not definitely call Carnival or your TA.
One of the best parts of a B2B is watching everyone lugging their carryons with sad faces, while you have another cruise ahead of you.
