The Love Boat made me love cruise ships, but then I saw Titanic. 
This makes me want to go on one for the first time in years.

If you gave our kids the choice of what kind of vacation they'd like to go on, I think they'd choose cruise every time. Never tried a Carnival Cruise, but from your report and photos it looks like a great time!
Hope we get to hear a little more about Chichen Izta in another post!
