I know, I still can't believe how much of a bargain they were!

The itinerary sounds really good and I know from a friend of ours out there that the Carnival cruises are really good.

By the way I love the food pictures. What's the beer on the left in the first picture please? looks like lemonade.
We enjoyed the cruise last year with Carnival as well. I know a lot of people have a bit of a downer on them compared to other lines (or say they are the 'party cruise line'!), but we had a lot of fun and found it was well worth the money.

Phil has consulted the beer notepad (!) and the beer was called 'Nightrider', which is a wheat beer. We kind of stumbled on that place by a bit of an accident last year and so we had a flight each so we could sample the different beers on offer. From what I remember my flight was better!

We love, love LOVE Key West! I'm not even sad that the cruise stops there as well!

We are going to try and find the beach that morning at Fort Zachary Taylor as we are only in Key West until 1pm on the cruise, and it's something we've not done before.

Definitely go to Carolines if you can - the food is absolutely amazing and such good value compared to other places. Definitely try and find Kermits as well. Hope you have a fantastic time!

Hey guys

Just wanted to say that I've been pretty absent from a lot of social media (including The Dibb) for a few weeks now as had a lot going on 'IRL' as it were.

However, we are very much looking forward to our holiday next week! We've had one little itinerary change - we're not able to check into the cruise until 1pm on the Thursday, and I *really* didn't fancy nearly 24 hours hanging around Miami airport!

So I've cancelled the airport hotel and booked a hotel my work friend recommended on South Beach instead



It's 20 minutes away from both the airport and the cruise terminal, so hopefully we will we get at least a morning on the beach!

I've not been my usual organised self and not even packed my suitcase yet, so that's got to happen in the next 72 hours as I am working monday and tuesday and we go to Heathrow tuesday night! Eeek! I have at least started making lists, so that is something
