Welcome to the CruisingTalk family, Tricia, its wonderful to have you here with us & I hope that you'll feel happy & comfortable with us :joy:This is my first post here
We book Carnival for a few reasons....first being that my husband's aunt made us :roflmao: She booked it for us, and paid the deposit. She has been wanting us to go on a cruise for a while now. This cruise was pretty convenient because it leaves from Norfolk, VA, the terminal is maybe a 10 minute drive from our house, so its easy to get to, and I think a great way to break us into cruising.
I heard Carnival is great for kids too, that Camp Carnival is a wonderful program. We will be cruising with our son, who will be 2.5 when we cruise in October 2012, so we wanted to make sure it was going to be a great experience for all of us.
The price was really good too!
We have a bon voyage thread here onsite, so do feel free to add yourself to it and just before departure - usually a week - we will start an individual bon voayge thread for you for everyone to wish you a happy cruise
Happy Posting :joy:
