15 cruises on Carnival & considering RCI
We have just completed our 15th Carnival cruise and have another booked for May 2010. We are considering changing to RCI and would love to hear some pros and cons on these two lines.
We have always enjoyed Carnival but are getting very tired of the "same-old, same-old" routines and shows.
Our nearest ports are (in order) Mobile, New Orleans, Jacksonville and Port Canaveral which limit us to Mexico, Nassau and Freeport or Key West if we want to drive to the port of embarkation. We are considering other ports in South Florida and interested in St Thomas and St Marten.
Any suggestions on ships and itineraries for RCI?
