Thank you all for your information! I have read the roll call pages and asked the questions I had over there. I have also posted some concerns that I have. My major concern is that my family tends to be more reserved than what appears to be the norm for Carnival. One person on the roll call said the cruise is a drinking event. I'm a little concerned about this because we do not drink and we would prefer to limit our daughters' exposure to drinking as much as possible. I want to ensure we will have plenty to do that will not go against our beliefs.The best info I can give you is board the ship with a positive attitude and that is what type of cruise you will have. Don't waste your time sweating over all of the things that you have read that could go wrong. Will it all be perfect..... good chance no. Deal with those ON BOARD at the time they happen with Guest Services. Don't let them build up and stay on your mind the entire cruise.
Will there be drinking ? Sure. Let your daughters see the few out of control (if you can find them) and use that to reinforce your beliefs with your daughters. Visual experiences are some of the best forms of education.
Come back and tell us your experiences and opinions.
