Hi Rob. Are you and your wife getting excited about your cruise? This will be our first cruise. My husband and I, and my sister are going and we are all really excited. Is this your first cruise or just your first on Carnival? I know it's an older ship and smaller but since this is our first I figure we won't have anything bigger or better to compare it to. I'm really looking forward to it!!!!! Thanks for replying. I guess we'll see you in Tampa on the 23rd.
