  1. Anyone know where to obtain the list of available karaoke songs on Independence of the Seas, in advance? I've seen the catalogs on MSC and Carnival, and most were quite old songs, or ones I've never heard of at all. Would like to see the choices on Independence ahead of time, if possible.
  2. Yep, the story lives on. I thank you too for sharing the lessons. A very good guide for us.
  3. This is a list I made last month when I was searching for a cruise: Grease, Aqua: RCL harmony, independence Brat Pack: NCL Escape Jersey Boys: NCL Bliss Flick: Carnival Vista Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor: NCL Breakaway Starwater: RCL Quantam Vroom: Carnival Victory Far from Over: Carnival Valor Mamma Mia, Blue Planet, Aqua: RCL Allure Cats, Aqua: RCL Oasis Million Dollar Quartet: NCL Escape Magic To Do: Emerald Princess Columbus: RCL Harmony Burn the Floor: NCL Epic Saturday Night Fever, Aqua - RCL Liberty We Will Rock You, The Gift - RCL Anthem of the Seas Hairspray, Aqua - RCL Symphony
  4. Well, I am the O.P., and I have experienced a horrible sailing on Carnival, that's why I asked the question. I went on a weekend cruise from South FL on Carnival, and it was a horrible experience, mainly focused on sex and drinking. The pool parties and pool games consisted of young men and young women in their swimwear doing sexual movements on the stage, answering sex questions into the microphone, tons of sexual innuendos, and the cruise directors challenging the competitors to demonstrate the "best" dry-humping in front of the 500+ people watching the pool competitions. It was disgraceful. The low-level Carnival ships are abhorrant. That's why I'm asking about this 1996 ship supposedly rated #1 by US Travel. This would be a multi-generational trip, and I don't think the grandkids need to see the sex games...Capiche? I want to know if that was isolated to Fort Lauderdale, or if that's a California staple, too. Also, within any cruiseline, there's a massive difference between their older ships & newer ships.
  5. I tried to msg you but CruiseCritic says I'm not allowed to send msgs. Here's the ranking: https://travel.usnews.com/cruises/best-cruise-ships/carnival-cruise-lines-288/
  6. Trying to get a handle on the cruises out of Los Angeles. When I was researching Carnival on the US News travel website, I learned they rank "Inspiration" as the #1 Carnival ship. (It's sister-ship, Imagination, ranks #24 out of 25 Carnival ships.) Launched in 1996 & refurbed in 2016, is it at all possible that Inspiration is actually #1? Am trying to plan a multi-generational outing for a very rare occasion, everyone is hard-up for $$ so I'm seeking a financially conservative option for a cruise...but don't want a ship equivalent to Majesty of the Seas. Anyone know if #1 is a deserved ranking for Inspiration?
