I have been on a number of cruises and chose Carnival for the kids.  The reason I did this is they had a cool water slide and mini golf that I thought they would get a kick out of.  I was right!  I have been on the other cruise lines and as it relates to service and food quality all were comparable, even though Carnival was less $.  I am glad I made this choice

Water was too rough to go. This happened to me on a Norwegian cruise too. Sorry to miss it
