It really is good advice to join an email list when it comes to airlines, cruise lines etc. I just got an email that Carnival is having a 12-hour sale with rates as low as $249pp for a three day cruise! Having literally just returned from a Carnival Cruise on Sunday, I can tell you that this is a GREAT deal! You often forget that the price includes room, food, beverages (alcohol extra and besides good to give your liver a break now and then), entertainment (we saw a fantastic comic), activities, water slides, pools, nice gym with sauna, great steam and jacuzzis, shows, ports of call where you can pay for excursions but don’t have to, and also ROOM SERVICE.
Oh and I forgot my favorite part – FREE daycare at Camp Carnival. My daughter loved it and most days it was open from 10am to 10pm with a 2hr break. The cost of daycare alone is worth the price of a cruise.
Where else can you get all that? NOWHERE!
Actually the best part for us was not having to fly anywhere as Carnival (and Royal Caribbean) both sail out of Baltimore – a very easy 30 minute drive.
So GO – book yourself a fun weekend on the FUN SHIP!
