Default Carnival cruise line having another banner day

The Carnival Triumph broke away from its moorings and drifted into a cargo ship. Mark Richt has clearly lost control of Carnival Cruise lines.

We were considering another cruise sometime soon, but probably won't book with carnival. On a related note, we are in ocho Rios Jamaica now at a beachs resort. Don't want to complain too much but be very careful with your expectations when booking beaches. My wife and I have been to sandals at Antigua but this is our first trip to beaches with the family, kids and friends. Major quality diff between the two. Overall still nice but very compact and a tiny beach. I'm talking pitching wedge long at best. They overbooked and gave us a different room than the one we had confirmed. Capital one helped pressure the parent company to make that right. Good place but nowhere near what others are like. The wait staff and help are very helpful though and have helped overcome everything else. Kids love it.

Haha...got an email from my travel agent yesterday...7 night Carnival cruise starting at $299. For anyone that's never cruised, that's an insanely low price. Hmm, wonder why?

Hmmm....maybe those uppity Peninsula folks are onto something. Get rid of Carnival, then get a decent cruise line in Charleston. Something tells me with all the mechanical problems Carnival has had of late perhaps that has something to do with the amount of soot?

They're looking at getting some different cruise lines to come into Charleston. But the problem the ships don't go anywhere our of Charleston because of the distance. Plus the prices are actually higher than if you sailed out of Fla.

Some ships do go places out of Charleston. My parents took one to Grand Cayman out of Charleston. Now I can understand if you want to go to the lower Carribean to go out of Florida, but if you just want a quick trip to the Bahamas, Bermuda, or upper Carribean, it can be and is done out of Charleston. Charleston is a good port if you just want to do the "long weekend" cruise, and that is what they cater to.

Norwegian is that deal. I've been on 2 Carnival Cruises, a Royal Caribbean, and a Norwegian. Norwegian was definitely the nicest of the 4. The Carnival had a ton of stuff going on but the quality of the ship definitely wasn't near the RC or Norwegian.

I can vouch for Princess Cruises. Wife and me went on one of their Caribbean cruises for our honeymoon and loved it. It was an older boat, but you could tell they spent time, effort, and money in keeping it nice. Food was great too. There weren't a lot of younger couples though, so it made for some awkward dinners when we were sat with a few older couples.

We're thinking of taking another cruise later this year or sometime next year. If we do, we're probably going to go with Royal Caribbean as we've heard great reviews from everyone we've talked to that have used that line.
