Why I booked this cruise-
After going on 2 other carnival cruises, I decided to book this cruise with my tax return in January. As a single mom of two boys ages 7 and 12 finances can be tight, but after comparing cruise dates and itineraries for over 2 weeks I knew exactly which one I was going to book. I chose The sailing on May 21st because it was my kids last few days of school and was still not quite in peak season so I got a great rate. It was also out of the port of Tampa which meant we could spend some time with family in the area before and after.
Parking at the port of Tampa-
Stand up paddle boarding got canceled. I ended up spending the whole day at the clothing optional bar 'The Garden of Eden'. I HIGHLY recommend!
Went to San Gervasio. My 12 year old has been talking abut it for weeks! He loved it. Taxi's were very expensive. $65 round trip and only take cash.
