First time poster, experienced cruiser!

I have been on both and I tend to lean towards RCI. We are planning our 1st anniversary in the Mexican Riviera, we have narrowed it to three choices Carnival, Princess and RCI.

I wasn't that happy with Carnival, there aren't enough activities onboard for people who aren't sleeping it off from the night before. Karaoke 3 times a day just didn't cut it for me. On RCI we had line dancing, ballroom dancing instruction, horse racing and quite a few more choices.

It will be the 1st cruise for my DH and he wants a balcony so we are doing a lot of research. All the prices are pretty much the same so it comes down to availability and excursions.

Fairsea - Caribbean - approx 1980
Fairwind - Panama Canal, Caribbean - 1982
Mississippi Queen - New Orleans, Natchez
Viking Serenade - Catalina & Ensenada, Star Trek Convention - June 1992
Royal Caribbean - Song of Norway - Panama Canal 1994
Fascination - Key West, Nassau - 2004
Sapphire Princess - Mexican Riviera - Nov 2009
Sapphire Princess - Mexican Riviera - Dec 2010
