Last year at a resort, we got this… (1982)

This year, we’re taking a Fun Ship cruise.

We thought we were getting a great deal on last year’s vacation. But that “great deal” wound up being a “come on” price. When we added on all our entertainment, meals. taxis and other extras. our trip cost us a lot more than we’d planned.

But on this year’s Carnival cruise, we’re getting virtually everything included for one low package price: eight sumptuous meals and snacks a day. a full gambling casino, nightclub entertainment and a whole ship full of activities. Plus our choice

of tropical ports in the sunny Caribbean or Mexico. All included in a price so low it’s typically $200-$400 less per couple than other 7-day Caribbean cruises. We’re getting it all this year with peace of mind and no expensive surprises!

The Mardi Gras, Carnivale, Festivale and Tropicale depart weekly from Miami every Saturday or Sunday for exotic Caribbean ports such as Samana, San Juan, St Thomas, Nassau, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
