With the larger ships becoming destinations in themselves, fewer ports would be fine with me. You can only visit Jamaica so much. The same with Cozumel, the Caymans, St. Thomas, and the rest. RCCL's private islands are great (especially Labadee, weee!). I guess the truth is just put me on a ship on the ocean anywhere away from the daily rat race and frankly I'm fine. The larger ships just give you more to see and do.
