Never say never! I'm actually looking at the 6niter Carnival Freedom.

If I'm having a bad hair day on the ship I'll wear the funnel hat!

You would look good in it but you have to get a swimsuit that matches it!

My Heart will always be with Royal but I'll try Carnival, Princess and HAL sometime down the road.

This is my breakdown 90% of cruising will be with Royal and 10% with other lines.

Well, let me count... I have done 14 with RCI, 2 Carnival, 1 Regal Empress and one Premier so that is 14 to 4 or 28% other and 72% Royal Caribbean. I guess I am a 75 % er.

Dave, I also went on the Regal Empress years ago. It was a weekend party cruise to nowhere out of New Jersey. More like a booze and gambling cruise. Bob

I did a similar cruise to no where from here. I really enjoyed the history of the ship and exploring it. I was a step back in time. Really cool.

Yes, Coconts was a crazy place. It was off season but I am sure during the season it gets pretty crazy. All the photo albums of free tequila winners and the panties and bras from the rafters prove that! 8)

Believe me, these are not temporary tattoos. And they ARE taking a bath! These are typical Carival cruisers.

Carnival Freedom is a great ship I loved it. I will go on Royal if you go on Carnival. Actually I think the Mariner of the Seas has my name on it. My co-worker is trying to get me on a Freedom Class ship, she doesn't know the name. If it's Freedom of the Seas I could say I have been on both Freedoms.
