We have enjoyed all of our NCL cruises. The newer NCL ships are much different from the older NCL Majesty. The Majesty is leaving the fleet at the end of this year and although we enjoyed the cruise, it is much smaller and fewer restaurants make it more difficult for freestyle dining.
It took me 18 years to come back to Carnival and we really enjoyed the Miracle last year. Now, I am trying to decide whether to book NCL or Carnival to Alaska for summer 2010. If we go with NCL, we will move up to Gold status. If we go Carnival, we will only be on our 3rd but will save lots of money to put towards some shore excursions.
