Brooke and I are finally back from our Carnival cruise! We had a blast, and can’t wait to share all the pictures and videos of our trip. It was my first time on a cruise, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. There were a lot of things that pleasantly surprised us. You have to watch the video to see our official list, but we can share a few of our runner ups right here. We couldn’t believe how big the ship was! It’s like a city on the water. It just kept going, and there are so many different areas. We would go to dinner a different way every night, mainly because we thought we knew where we were going, so we wouldn’t look at the map, which was fun because we kept finding new places. “I was looking for the 24 hour pizza, but I found a piano bar! Amazing!” Another thing that surprised us, was that the extra bed came down from the ceiling. Rockwell loved it so much, it made bed time fun. If that’s not surprising, I don’t know what is. Check out the video below, where we narrow down the 5 Things that surprised us the most. Have you been on a cruise before? What surprised you?
