By Timothy from NY - I absolutely love taking vacations. It's something I do at least twice a year, and I’d honestly say it is the only thing that keeps me sane. Although it'd be difficult to choose a favorite destination for a vacation, I can certainly say that taking a cruise will surely result in a worthwhile getaway.
I have taken many cruises on Carnival cruise ships, and they are by far the greatest thing this earth has to offer. My favorite part of being on a cruise ship is the large variety of options. Some days, you will be decked near land to go and explore new and exciting countries, and other days you spend the day at sea relaxing aboard a majestic ship.
Although the particular destination doesn't truly matter as much to me as the journey; I had such a great time in Jamaica, interacting with the locals and trying new things. There are literally endless possibilities, and the only downside is that you usually will have one full day to do it.
After that, it's time to board the ship and sail away. That sudden realization is usually made better by the unlimited free pizza and ice cream that Carnival has to offer, as well as daily shows and performances for the guests. I'd say that any vacation aboard a Carnival cruise ship is a great vacation idea.
