Carnival is geared for young singles and families.  I cannot sit by the pools bec. The music is so loud.  It is hard to find a quite spot without piped in music blaring.  I do love the prices though and am at Platinum Level.  I am just careful about the dates I travel to avoid too many kids.  Don't get me wrong.  I love kids and get along well with them.  I just don't  like when they are unsupervised and unruly.  I will speak nicely to them if I encounter poor behavior.  I just don't feel it is my job to correct them.  I used to be a teacher.  Gloria
