You are certainly going to feel some serious magic! This is an experience like none other. Hope you have a great time!
The Adults-Only Serenity Areas (sun bathing, Jacuzzis, pool) on many of the Carnival ships are a tranquil oasis. And, yes, the main pool areas on Carnival are typically lively… I found this info at: http://cruiseadvice.org/carnival-cruises
Wish I were going! Love Carnival!
