Review summary

I talked to a lot of people that were first timers and experienced cruisers; to the man, they prefer the quality of Carnival cruises for the price; however, even if you can afford it, you'd have to pay significantly more to get just a little bit more luxury.

FTTF (Faster to the Fun) is definitely worth it and getting on and off the boat
