Default We're back from the Holiday.

We finally got out of town on Southwest and made it to the ship on time, no thanks to AirTrash airlines. The cruise went well except for my bout with either too much sun and beer on Thursday or Montezuma's revenge, don't know which one nailed me but Friday was spent in bed all day cramping up and sitting on the toilet.

Not too much of a loss though since we were in some pretty rough seas and the weather was terrible. We didn't know until we got back about tropical storm Matthew, which was the culprit.

It was a pretty good trip and we even caught our 10:25 a.m. flight out of New Orleans. And I was amazed that our ship board account for the two of us was under $500.

Regards,
Thomas

Refresh my memory Thomas, which ship, where to, and how 'bout a review and pics?
Sorry about that "revenge" thing, sounds awful!

donna (DUH!! I just read again "Back from the Holiday" I guess that was the ship, not just the vacation!! !)

Welcome back Thomas and Mrs. Thomas! Was it a good trip EXCEPT for that revenge thing? Poor Thomas!

Was this your bil's first cruise, or is he an experienced cruiser?

Give us details when you get a chance.

No, Dorothy it was BIL's second cruise and again he removed the tips from his account. But unbeknownst to him I gave the waiter $10 each night for him and his girlfriend.

Being a smaller ship, and one of the oldest in Carnival's fleet, the ship did not have all the amenities we've come to expect. But for overall satisfaction it was a good cruise, the food was excellent, the staff treated us well, and the rooms were clean for a ship this old.

And the casino is one of the friendliest I've ever seen. <wink>

Regards,
Thomas

Welcome home, that was nice of you to try and make up for your bil tipping, or lack there of.
