Sail Date: Mar 2008
Cabin: Balcony


We were a party of 10 (ranging from 27 to a young 72). For us it was our 5th (all on Carnival - Victory, Victory, Valor, Glory, Freedom). We also had some first timers with us. Six of us flew down the day before out of Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale on Southwest. We were very disappointed with Southwest's new boarding system. Now they have a zone and a number and it took twice as long to board. "Get in this line behind this arrow", "get in that line behind another arrow" they kept saying. People were not happy at all and the attendant was a little arrogant to boot! Once on board we had one of "bumpiest" rides ever. At one point we were "out of our seats" it was so bad. All I could think of was "LOST". The rest of our party flew down from Pittsburgh and Virginia.
