Spur of the moment Key West/Nassau Christmas Cruise

First Carnival cruise for us.  I am comparing this cruise to three other cruise lines that we have been on with groups and just by ourselves.  Enjoyed the smaller ship for five day cruise. Food was great and staff/crew worked well with passengers.  Christmas cruise very family oriented.  Great to see how well staff worked with children on this Christmas voyage, incorporating children in shows, etc.  Entertainment not as professional like big productions performed on larger ships, but the eight singers/dancers had beautiful voices and personalities that worked well with the passengers.  Even performing in the Atrium surrounded by passengers.  Loved to do the Electric Slide with them!   Relaxing week...just what we wanted for our Christmas get-away!


Hope to cruise the Caribbean on a larger Carnival ship.
