Default Which would you choose?

Out of all of the carnival ships that leave from Florida ports, which ship is your favorite and why?

(Inspiration seems to be a board fave!)

Also, would Splendor be a bit much for a first time cruiser? The ship looks awesome, but having never cruised before, not sure if I am setting myself up for "overkill" on that one........... Just wondering!

Thanks in advance!!

Splendor would be a great choice. Just keep in mind that if you book one of the older ships later the ship itself might not be quite as nice. Splendor will only be in Florida for a short while so it might be a good idea to grab it before it goes to the West Coast. 8)

Inspiration! Just returned from a 5 day "Inspiration" cruise, and it was GREAT. Super ship, excellent crew, wonderful C.D., superior food, and entertainment galore! What's not to like?

Dave, you probably won't believe this, but the lovely Mrs. Jones' (Vita) camera BROKE! It wouldn't focus at all, and Canon just returned it to us after "fixing" a recall, so I guess, back it goes. I've owned Canon cameras for a long time, but this may be the last one. (I'll keep my old 35mm AE1 however. It still works after 40+ years.
I'll be talking to you.

Ken, I have one of those Canon T-70'S that I bought back in the early 80's and it still works fine. Bob
