Come to think of it, last time I went was in April too........maybe we were on the same bus-ride to Hell? Or as the guy behind me called it, The "Hell bound Bus"

I have a mug from Hell that was pushed back in the cabinet, I just realized a few days ago that it was there.

It is looking more and more like we will NOT be going to Hell after all........The horse Ride on the beach looks more fun, and since we found out in the other post about the all u can drink thingy on the cruise, I want to be on the ship as much as I can to get my money's worth.

Yet another reason I will not cruise again with Norwegian.

I was on a luxury cruise last summer that was all inclusive. People would have a cocktail or two before dinner, a glass or two of wine with dinner, maybe a night cap after. On sea days people might have a glass of wine with lunch, but it was rare to see anyone drinking before cocktail hour unless they were at a wine tasting. No one had the "I need to get my money's worth" mentality.

My feeling was that being on such a beautiful ship, going to amazing places, and being in the company of interesting people was enough to justify my expenditure. I can get drunk at home, I didn't find the need to do so on vacation.

Carnival is doing the all you can drink thing.

The reason I will probably buy into it is because
1 I cannot get drunk at home. I am either working, on call, or taking care of the kids. That being said, no drinking is allowed. IF I get one pint of Guinness a week, It is a rare treat.
2 I am taking vacation with the idea that drinking WILL be a part of it. I usually drink 5 or 6 alcoholic beverages a day, startinng after lunch by the pool (usually not with lunch though) and prgressing through the evening. By having it paid for, I can have as much as I want. (I think they limit you to 10 a day though)
3 People are more interesting when I am drinking. Or less annoying, I am not sure which.

I wouldn't sail on carnival if it were free, but to each their own.

Or at least not too far from Hell.
I went to Hell once befroe, other than a lot of bad jokes and hearing everyone in the tour group laughing at everything the tour guide was saying "This is the place we call HELL. It formed long ago" There was not a lot to see and do, I got a HELL postcard and mailed it to myself (signed "the devil")
No real reason to go back to Hell.
Did not see anyone I knew there either

^^^^THIS LOL

This thread is too comical. I didn't know you could go to Hell and get out and come back any time you want to. Now I wanna go and see just to say I went to Hell

Lines, crowds, belly flop contests, crappy food, nickel and dimed for everything, brawls in the night clubs, slobs in the dining room, garish decor, tiny cabins, that's a good start.

No wonder they try to sell it for cheap. I've never been on a cruise, but I have been looking in to one for me and my daughter. Could you recommend one that is fun for 27 year old and 9 year old young ladies?

Disney. Worth waiting and saving an extra year if that's what it takes. Distant second choice would be Princess. There are no other lines I'd recommend unless you want to go luxury.
