Did you know that carnival has a cool tool for arranging that type of cruise? Here is the link to that page.

We did one when we went on the Glory. The oldest was 80 and the yougest was 8. We had a blast. We all had balcony cabins and we had the steward unlock the partician doors. It was like having connecting cabins.

Have a great time.

I would ABSOLUTELY book with a travel agent. They will get you a better price than booking with Carnival, and arrange group amenities for you.

Know Carnival's price, and then look for quotes from some travel agents. If the ones who quote you aren't lower priced, you've simply not found the right agent.

Use an agent with email contact and a toll free phone number, then anyone anywhere can book into the group easily.

and don't forget since I live down the road about 30 miles, that I am your long lost cousin on your father's side, that your mother never talked about and I would love to finally meet the rest of my relatives at this reunion

thanks so much for the suggestions i will do both ! and venice you can come on down, we have roots in MS and everywhere. we are planning to go on a 4 day Bahamas cruise out of Florida and then spend for days at Disney World. So the travel agent may be best because people want me to figure out the options for Transportation from the airport and train stations. i know mears does a lot of transport and i know you can book through carnival. we are going in december of next year when we are going but i would like all the info together by Jan 2010.
