Those 10 cruises, must be completed by the end of this year or after that it is 75 days.

I echo from many of the above posts....more bang for the buck. However for my next I will try another line just to do something different but feel certain I'll hop right back to Carnival.

More bang of the buck is what I feel Carnival has that others don't have. We are doing our first RC cruise next month only because it's a fundraiser for our daugther's school. I'm not saying that anythis is wrong with the other cruise lines. I just feel that Carnival has the best value going.

Very good fares for a brand that, today, is in the same league with its sister brands Holland and Princess.

I'm not saying Carnival is the same, just that the fare difference can be stunning, and the experience isn't necessarily tremendously different, depending on what an individual cruiser values.

Having sailed both the Carnival Freedom and Carnival Dream in the past couple of years (both twice, back-to-back), I have to say nobody does lunch like Carnival. The choices are beyond superlative.

Then they fall flat on their faces at dinnertime for choice. That is both the strength and the major fail for me.

Actually, the new rule is they will do you laundry 3 times (for each platinum member-so 6 between my wife and myself) on a 7 or more day cruise. Usually not a problem, although it would have been close on last year's Australian 16 night cruise. However, my wife is an expert at stuffing their laundry bags so tight that they have to send it back in two bags!
