Took my mother in law and two sons (9 and 10) for spring break vacation. We had an awesome time with plenty to eat,drink, and do for everyone!! This was our first cruise so I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do. I would probably book less activity on excursions and just get off the boat to sightsee close to port as it is nerve racking and a bit too much to do when trying to fit so many activities into short periods of time.  However, excursion employees and Carnival do a great job of helping first timers get where they need to be and when. I booked our cabins on the 6th deck thinking that would be centrally located and easy to get to. It was a good location but next time I will book deck 7 or higher because the 6 th deck is above all the nightclubs and the noise was a little bothersome. If you are not a light sleeper it won't be a problem as it is not really bad but next time I will choose another deck.  All in all it was the best time we have ever had and my kids are already begging to go again!Happy

A bit noisy on deck 6 but understandable that it can't be avoided and we enjoyed all the fun on deck 5 so a small sacrifice!!
