These two play their violins with all their hearts, and several songs even moved me to tears. It was awesome to watch them flawlessly switch playing lead, on the fly. Their music is amazing. I was mesmerized by their talent. If you ever get a chance to see them play, they'll stop you in their tracks. They're wonderful people, Karina and Carl. They graciously played requests and are so friendly! If I had the money and the time, I'd attend every concert they were to ever play. They were the best hire Princess Cruise Lines ever made.
