    I have been on a carnival cruise before and have to say I actually prefer Royal Carribean.  I think that everything on Royal Carribean is bumped up a notch! 

    I have been to the Bahamas before and loved it.  Have you been on a carnival cruise before?

    Also - I would make sure to book one with all the tips and gratuities included....this way you don't need to worry about it the last day of the cruise!  Additionally, I would not get the soda or bottled water packages - you have to drink a lot of either to make it worth the price.
