Default I'M BACK!! =)

I'M BACK since this morning! Already having cruise withdrawal, but I just had the most amazing 5 day cruise. It was wayyy too short (I'm used to 7 or 8 days) but it was probably one of my favorites. I went on Carnival Inspiration. It's a smaller ship, but the port of Tampa is super convenient for me since I live about 45 minutes away.

The ship was clean and the majority of the staff were great. I made some really amazing friends and still had time with my Dad during the day.

Since my 18th bday was the first day of the cruise the Club O2 director let me stay, but she didn't let any of the other seniors that were 18 stay even though some of them were in a group mixed with 17/18 year olds for a senior trip. They were guys so I don't know if that changed it in her mind?? Oh well, I got to stay. LOTS of people were trying to sneak in when they found out I was there and 18. Club O2 was crazyy! There was a TON more teen drinking than on a summer cruise. I don't drink but bottles were being passed before the club every night. I felt so bad for our Club O2 director who couldn't figure out who was supposed to be in the club and who wasn't.

Overall an unforgettable trip thats for sure!

Any other questions on anything I will answer.. I'm sure I will write more later and give a link for some cruise pics.

Welcome back!! Glad to hear you had fun

And as for the drinking, I can tell you from experience that spring break cruises are notorious booze cruises. Last cruise I took on spring break, by the end of the cruise, our group of 30 or so had gone through upwards of 20 or 30 liter bottles

The Club O2 director had a list of everyone under 21. I wasn't sure of what to do but when people were coming in on the first night she wanted our sail and sign cards to sign us in and sticker our cards. I gave her my card and didn't say anything. She just said "Oh happy birthday Lauren" and handed it back. Everyone else that asked she told that unless their 18th birthday was today they had to get out. I got luckyy!!!

As for pictures... they are all up on my myspace! I will get them on facebook soon as well.

Your cruise director shouldn't seperate you since you are traveling with two people who will be in Club O2, and the fact that you are a girl (sorry guys it's a double standard).

NEW pics of facebook now too!! There are the two links, because I couldn't fit all the pics into one album.

Mexico is fun! It was my third time there and every time I go it is looking nicer and nicer. It's definitely a tourist attraction.
