  1. Loved it on dream and if Mardi Gras has stupid deck 5 around the ship, a cove balcony is the superior choice to 1) getting to enjoy the water and 2) not getting blinded by deck 5 lights.
  2. LOVED everything about it! We would not do an aft. But an aft wrap we would absolutely consider versus a suite depending on cruise. With our friends having the room next door and with opening the balcony divider, it was an incredible amount of space.
  3. I haven’t seen tuxedos and long dresses on the last several cruises, nor military uniforms either.
  4. I dislike Conquest class ships. The layout is the pits with traffic jams and congestion. I had a nice time on Valor though despite that.
  5. We saw tons of jellyfish. I had surgery one month ago, so I went to no shows (we had late dining and I was exhausted by the time it was over) and I didn’t leave the ship in progreso. So I don’t have many pics on board, and I’ll end with some steak house food porn. Conquest class is my least favorite class of ship because it has traffic jams and feels crowded. I prefer Fantasy class and Dream.
  6. Finally we saw some sea life from Our balcony. Fish and even a pod of dolphins!! I managed to catch a photo of one.
  7. We went to Cozumel first where we paid $800 to to the passion island VIP private cabana excursion. We enjoyed ourselves very much (my 2nd time to passion island). It was my birthday cruise, so my MIL sent a fruit basket and my daughter sent chocolate covered strawberries. The LSU game was on in the sports bar and the saints game was on the big TV by the pool but it rained so we went and watched it inside one of the suites.
  8. Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed my 7th Carnival cruise (8th total). We did aft wrap 7440 and our friends did the room next to us, so we had the balcony divider opened which was an incredible amount of space!!! We had 8 total people with the other two mid ship in suites.
  9. The rowdiest drunkest Cruise I went on, complete with puke in the hallways, was the 7 day Pride of Hawaii (ncla) cruise around the Hawaii islands, which was neither short nor cheap. Meanwhile, Carnival 7 day out of New Orleans has been downright respectable.
  10. Just got off Valor cruise. Elegant night looks no different than any other night. He can wear dockers and a short sleeve button down Hawaii type shirt and be much more comfortable. We traveled with a retired colonel and no way was he bringing his uniform. Elegant night does NOT require a suit and I saw not one this cruise.
  11. Oh and as an aside, California had their first pediatric flu death the other day. The child had other medical conditions as well.
