Well I was going to go to Ocean city Md but received an email from Carnival and They had some last minute deals so I jumped on the deal, so we booked wednesday and sailed Sunday. I even got a great deal on airfare. We fly usair out of Harrisburg Pa and fly to Phillly and then to Orlando all flights were on time and we arrived in Orlando at 10:30am where we ran into our Carnival Transfer guy who instructed us where to go we booked our transfer and off we were to Port Canaveral. Getting on the ship was a breeze and we were in our room by 1pm our luggage was not there but that was fine because we had our swim suits in our carry ons. so we explored the ship and ate some lunch. OK one bad thing... the life boat drill, disorganized chaos it took forever and no one knew where to go. So we sail and the fun began the food was great we had eat anytime seating, and we had a great service team We called it an early night and went to bed. Freeport Bahamas... nice beaches great food and nice people Captain cocktail party... had a great time meet some real nice people and had a few drinks Lobster night yeah best part of cruising OK Now the best part.... Nassua Bahamas....ATLANTIS aquaadventure $110 per person $4 for taxi to Paradise island..grab a cab don't take a boat it takes longer and they can be rude. Taxi drops us at Atlantis front door. We had one of the funniest day of our life it was unbelivable and not very busy either. OK NOW for the excitment of our cruise we left Bahamas at 6am on Wednesday and had a day at sea, but that night a man jumped off our cruise ship at 11pm at night and was rescued by the disney ship which was sailing near us, we did not see him jump but saw him get rescued. Disembarkation best ever it was so fast and easy So all and all great last minute cruise a few minor problems but nothing to ruin our time. This is our second carnival cruise and I really am loving them. If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me iseemen@yahoo.com I will do my best to help

Great end of summer cruise
