Recommendations for 5-year college reunion cruise

During our senior year in college, my friends and I went on a 7-day Carnival Cruise (the "Imagination") and had a great time. Back then it was completely a "Spring Break" cruise - and we didn't care that four of us were crammed in the cheapest rooms on board. Well, 5 years later we are trying to plan a reunion - complete with new spouses (no kids yet though). While we still want to have fun, with plenty or activities and nightlife, we aren't in as much of a "spring break" mentality anymore and probably are looking for a slight step up since college. We are looking to do a 7-day cruise in June or July of 2002 - hoping to pay about $1000 or so per person. While I don't want the same experience as our first trip, I read that Carnival has a new ship "Carnival Pride" that will be sailing next year. If we book it, it will likely be it's second sailing or so. Is it a bad idea to try a new ship so early in it's life - things may not be running up to par, etc. Also, should I expect it to be very similar to our initial experience on the Carnival Imagination - we really want something a little classier than our first experience. There will be about 20 or so people going on this cruise - any recommendations are appreciated.

Dana,

Is the $1000.00 per person you want to pay for just the cruise or does that figure include the airfare ? If you want airfare included in the $1000.00, where will you be flying from ? Based on your I think I can provide further info and recommendations.

The $1,000 +/- per person would probably not include airfare/travel (although if it did, that would be great!) Many folks flying from North Carolina (CLT and RDU) and others from Chicago, New York and SFO...

YOur budget is fine as long as no air is required--try Celebrity--they were running a special of $2100.00 approx for 2 in a BALCONY cabin on a high deck during a holiday period---it was a great rate and they should have something like that...IN fact, if you call your travel agent,they can get you a group booking and spread the free cabin among all 20 of you....email if you need anything...

Hi Dana,

Since you have your own group you will be making your own fun. Therefore any cruise-line will do fine. Get the best price and go. Make sure you get group rates and amenities from your travel agent.
