Carnival Cruise Lines offers a fun cruise experience for extended families. My family and I cruised on the Carnival Sensation in March of 2013 and this is when I fell in love with cruising. We cruised out of Port Canaveral, Florida. Freeport and Nassau were two ports that we explored while cruising. When you are cruising with extended family, your cruise will be EPIC. We were a party of ten, ages 14-73. I never heard the words, “I am bored!” That to me, says our cruise on the Carnival Sensation was a huge success!
Five Days Of Family Fun Cruising With Extended Family
We boarded on a Sunday, and learned rather quickly that there would not be a lack of food for the five days we would be on the Carnival Sensation. Have you indulged in Carnival’s warm, chocolate melting cake?
It took the 14-year-old boy in our group ten minutes to find the ice cream machine! He stopped counting at 24 ice cream cones on day #3. Cruising with extended family offers insight into what foods family members appreciate. We learned during this cruise that everyone in our family loves ice cream.
Karaoke On The Carnival Cruise Ship
Carnival Cruise Lines offered a nice variety of shows, games, activities, and about anything you can imagine. Our family opted to attend a karaoke night on night #3. My boys (ages 17 & 22) and my nephews (ages 14 & 20) thought it would be fun to see their Mom, Aunt, and Grandma sing!
The Dixon Three debuted on the Carnival Sensation, thanks to four boys. Fun memories and a new arrangement of We are Family, by Sister Sledge, debuted that evening.
Crew Member Joe Provided Top Notch Service
Our waiter, Joseph, knew how to engage all of us during dinner each evening.
We opted for the 6:30 dinner each evening. The food was very tasty, flavorful, and never-ending! Again, it took the 14 and 17-year-olds in our group a total of one conversation with Joseph, to learn that they could order two entrées. If you have a teenage boy that eats a lot; cruising with Carnival Cruise Lines should be on your radar! Cruising is a great value for your dollar. The activities and food are all abundant.
The piano bar and the unique shopping experiences while on board the Carnival Sensation were also huge hits for our cruising crew! When you cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines, you not only have several days of fun in the sun, you also have the opportunity to explore new cultures. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and book that Carnival Cruise today! You will be glad you did.
Happy Traveling~ Sara
