Most recent cruise was last September,2000 on the Carnival Victory 5 day to Canada. I was one who use to shun Carnival but not anymore. Cabin was great which was inside and traveling alone was not bad as I had the whole cabin to myself. I felt the food was good and the entertainment better than what I have had on past cruises on Celebrity.
I feel as the ships get bigger and bigger the cruiselines are quickly become what the old airline Peoples Express was to the masses,cheap travel,with discounts just to experience a cruise where you get more than you've bargained for as people go on a cruise...ie...people who shoud not cruise do cruise. When the ships got bigger the intimacy of the smaller ships went overboard to say the least.
