Karaoke EVERY night, and the Carnival Legends Show. (Although, it's time to introduce some NEW legends IMO, as some of the current ones were never legends to begin with, and also most folks who cruise Carnival a lot are tired of seeing the same legends over and over again.)
Sky you are so right. I wont even go to the Legends show anymore since they have the same legends and sing the same old songs. Ricky Martin a legend?
2008-Valor and Glory
2009-Spirit and Splendor
2010-Freedom of the Seas and Mariner of the Seas
2012-Allure of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas
Other than that, I think it is the (Generally) cheap fares that makes Carnival stand out. From what I can tell, Carnival also has best patronage program. I like feeling rewarded for my loyalty, even if it is only 1 or 2 cruises.

Since I have never cruised another cruise line...I can't say what another line does (or does not) have....
we cruise Carnival for many reasons.
The most important is the care they have given our son with Autism over the years. He is so comfortable on a Carnival ship now, it is like he gets to be a "normal" kid for a week.
