click23 Posted September 26, 2013 #1 Share Posted September 26, 2013 My wife and took a cruise on the Carnival Sensation two years ago and loved most every part of it, but we really did not care for Freeport. While she loves the beach, we prefer history and scenery over activities, going to St Augustine next week and would take that over Panama City every time. We are looking at taking another cruise next year, late summer/early fall time period, and have decided to stay with Carnival for this trip for a variety of reasons. We want a 4-5 night cruise with at least two stops, other than Freeport. For budget reasons we will drive, based on that I have narrowed down the ports to Charleston, Jacksonville, New Orleans, and Port Canaveral. We also want a Fun Ship 2.0 ship, so that leaves us with the Carnival Elation(getting upgraded early next year), Carnival Liberty, and the Carnival Sunshine. While the Carnival Liberty and Carnival Sunshine have stops in Freeport, but they also have two other stops, so we will just treat it as a day at sea. Here are the itineraries we are interested in: Carnival Elation - At Sea/Progreso/Cozumel/At Sea Carnival Elation - At Sea/Cozumel/Progreso/At Sea Carnival Liberty - At Sea/Half Moon Cay/Nassau/Freeport Carnival Sunshine - Nassau/At Sea/Grand Turk Island/At Sea Carnival Sunshine - At Sea/Key West/Nassau/Freeport Just looking at some thoughts on these ships and itineraries. Another consideration would be that we would have 2.5 year old daughter going with us. We found out we were expecting after booking the cruise. I have read wonderful thinks about Camp Carnival, but I am worried on what to do when we are at the ports. I know most shuttles and buses do not have seat belts, so I am not sure if we should bring a car seat or not. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
