Thanks for your responses
Yes, we know it's a short cruise & no, we don't plan to compare it to our last cruise. Mostly it came about as my husband & I and my brother & his wife were talking about getting away for the weekend just the adults and just the 4 of us. We've been looking into various places to rent/stay at and this cruise ended up being pefect for us... just a weekend thing, we don't have to drive 4 or more hours to get to it (my house is less than 5 min from the port), and for the 4 of us to go, it's cheaper than the 4 of us to rent a house or really nice hotel somewhere, pay to get there, pay to "do" something (like shows or other activities) and our food costs. for us, it seems ideal, however, YMMV.
Having never sailed carnival before, we would (and do) appreciate any tips from "veteran carnival sailors"
