Experiences With New People and New Places. - My Family Travels


Out of all of the travel experiences I have had, I have never been so impressed or so welcomed by anyone until I sailed with Carnival Cruise line. It was not just the enormous ship and various activities that made the travel experience enjoyable, it was the people we met and the places we went. This all started at three a.m. when my mom, dad , brother and I had to wake up and get ready to board a shuttle to take us to the airport. I also had a great time at the airport. I experienced first class and I figured out too late not to put liquid items in a carry on bag, otherwise TSA will take them. We got through all the requirements to get to the plane and we were ready an hour early. We took the plane out of Washington D.C.  down to Miami at 6:00 a.m. and got down to Miami at 10:00 we had to get our luggage again so we could get it on the boat. We got on the ship around noon and my brother and I share the same cabin. We went looking around and the first place we wanted to find was the arcade. The arcade was just the place we were going to go if we got bored, but that didn’t happen we saw a game that had been so close to being beaten and you could win a prize. We told ourselves we would come back after dinner. Our rooms were open around two p.m. and my brother and I waited there until dinner. Dinner was a great experience the staff was great every night I tried a new food I had never tried before. After the dinner that night my brother and I went back to the arcade and we found ourselves sucked in to winning that prize a brand new game system that was 3D.  At 12:45 my brother won the prize that we were desperately hoping for. We rushed to our parents to find them sleep, but we made so much noise that we woke them up and we all celebrated my brothers success a game normally $300 he won for $30. The next day we woke up early and got breakfast most of that day was spent in the pool. The next day was our day at port, We planned on going to the Dunn’s river falls in Jamaica. We climbed a waterfall for an hour it was a great experience. The next day was another day at port. We were then in the Cayman Islands. We went to a turtle farm where I held a turtle and we went to the beach. The water was clear on the beach and we could see fish swimming under us. The next day was our last day and we celebrated by just being together as a family. We enjoyed our cruise.
