No surprise here that Florida Today reported that Carnival was named Best Value For the Money by a major online cruise consumer publication.  It recognized its frequent fare sales, host of dining and entertainment options and obviously it's low base prices.  Even with low prices, it still delivers a great vacation.  Cabin prices can be as low as $75 pp per day.   I know that I have sailed for $55 pp per day on their shorter cruises.  These shorter cruises make cruising affordable for families.
