And why? My husband and I have been on the Glory and the Valor and we are looking at booking a cruise this year, but don't really know what to go with. We are looking at one on the Triumph based soley on itenerary. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I love the "Miracle". She's a Spirit class ship, perfect size, excellent staff with superior service, great entertainment and just refitted. Give "Miracle" a look. You won't go wrong.
I've been on the Fantasy, Elation, Celebration, and Valor. Thus far, the Valor by far. My least favorite is the Celebration (short deck & hotel like lobby) was the worst to me.
I'm going on the Liberty, March 1, 2008. I think this will be my new favorite.

In Sept, we cruised on the Conquest, and lopved her. The last Carnival cruise I had sailed on was in 95, on the Fascination. We loved this newer class of ship. The Farcus interiors are not for the timid, but like on all the ships we have sailed, once the fun sets in, who looks, or cares ....It all becomes part of the fun atmosphere.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Well, my favorite Carnival ships prior to my cruise in June were the Valor and Glory. In June, we sailed on the Liberty and this is now our favorite ship....beautiful, clean, great service from all staff members, great food in the formal dining room. Our cruise was an 8 nighter that included Antigua and Tortola, they were breathtaking and the snorkeling in Tortola was one of the best I've ever been on. We sailed on a catamaran to a cove where pirates once hid their treasures in the caves, the fish and water were spectacular.
I love Carnival Spirit and Carnival Pride, both ships of Spirit Class and easy to navigate.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
We have been on the Elation, Celebration and Conquest.
We love the Conquest and we are taking her for our 3rd time.
Big, Beautiful and Fun. Very affordable for a family of 5. Taking the Graduates this year as a graduation present.
All the ships have their special appeal.
Galveston port is also only 10 hours away.
My wife and I have been on the Destiny, Miracle and Victory. We really loved the Destiny but it was our Honeymoon and our first cruise. I would say the Victory was our favorite, especially the Seaside theatre because I got to see my New England Patriots play on it . The Destiny and Victory were very similiar. I wasn't crazy about the decor of the Miracle although I have no other complaints. The ships are like children you love them all just the same.
Cruising.....The only way to travel
