15th Anniversary trip

When we cruise we always take the kids with us. In fact, we take the kids with us everywhere we go. I don’t understand how some parents always leave their kids behind when they go places. Your kids are your family! That being said, my wife and I have not gone anywhere alone without our kids in 15 years with the exception of a concert trip here and there but...

Pre-cruise planning We booked this cruise in January 2017. I emailed my PVP at Carnival and told her what I wanted and we booked it. I always book through her because she lets me know of cabins that aren’t on the Carnival website. She knows the type of cabins we like and helps me get the best one. As soon as we booked it, I went ahead and started watching for...

Belize

Belize is one city that I wasn’t excited about visiting because of all of the bad things I had heard on other cruise websites about how dangerous it was, how bad it was, etc etc. I am the type of person who doesn’t let others opinions influence mine and 99% of the time I am glad of that. This is one of those times. We were scheduled to be in port from 8a...
