I love the Coco Key makeover!!! All the people bitching are just dumb. They're still keeping the free beaches and free lunch! Now they've added more stuff for those of us who don't want to just sit on a beach all day! Best of both worlds people!!!
Also, I look forward to taking Jack Crouse up 450' on that balloon!
Wow, the Coco Cay renovations look incredible! We just got back from a RC cruise that stopped at their other private island, Labadee Haiti, and we absolutely loved it. Labadee had so many activities for the whole family (we have kids 14, 10, and 8) and was the highlight of our trip. I will definitely be taking another RC cruise to see Coco Cay when the additions are completed.

PROSPECT, VA (WWBT) - Carnival Cruise is a well-known brand, and as such a social media account with that name carries value for the company.
So, when a 15-year-old fan of sailing the high seas snatched up the account on Snapchat before the cruise line could, the company pulled out all the stops to get him to relinquish control.
Darian Lipscomb, of Prospect, has been on four cruises with the company, according to a Carnival press release, and he’ll get a fifth one free on Carnival’s newest ship, Horizon, in exchange for the social media handle.
The teen didn’t know the company was after him, but when signs and billboards featuring Shaquille O’Neal, Carnival’s "Chief Fun Officer," started popping up around his hometown, it was hard to keep the secret.
Lipscomb agreed to turn over control of the account and will fly to Barcelona, Spain, for a ride on Horizon’s first voyage, and his first European excursion.
He’ll also receive some other gifts throughout the trip, which Carnival will chronicle on Snapchat, because now it can.

We took our 3.5yo on a 3 day Disney cruise last year, and he really liked it, as did we. Service was phenomenal, and the waiters at dinner times were tremendous at keeping him engaged and happy. The room was big enough for the 3 of us, and well designed to maximize utility. The shows are the right length for littles, pools are a win, movies all day, etc etc. Only downside was him not being *quite* big enough for the Aquaduck. He was fine on Castaway Cay for the slides there, with a lifevest, as they plunge into fairly deep water.
We liked it well enough that we booked literally the same itinerary again this year - he'll probably be more into the kids club areas now that he's had a year of PK under his belt, which another big potential plus for us.
RCCL looks like they want our money in a couple years now though!
