Having never cruised before, I really don't have anything to compare with. But, my husband & I are going on Carnival Triumph in April & we are getting a cabin with a balcony. It is costing us $2353 with tax! That is about $1200 or less per person. You get a balcony with it! You can get airfare, but,' I ' found it WAY cheaper! DO get the round-trip transfers to & from the airport, even if you fly in the day before & stay longer after returning-it is $40 for 2 RT. They pick you up & take you exactly where you need to be at the port!
This is for a 7-day cruise to San Juan, St. Thomas & St. Croix.
It sounds like it will have a great party atmosphere & there are casinos, etc.
Sounds like something you would like. I plan on not sleeping much & partying all nite-even tho I am a 43 year old 'hag'!
I want to feel young & this just may be the cruiseline to do it on!
I heard that the other Carnival ships are more laid back & more family oriented than this. Yes-unfortunately-there are children on board the Triumph (sigh!), but, I guess less than on the others!
Hope so! (Sorry, don't mean to 'offend' anyone. My feelings is this-
cruises are for adults. Not children. Just my opinion.)
ANYway, if you go with Carnival Cruise Lines-ask for Jenny Dyson.
She is our agent & she is GREAT!!!
Good Luck & happy cruising!!!
