We have taken both of those itineraries over the past 2 or 3 years. They are both great and offer a variety of experiences. Port Canaveral is not as convenient for us as Ft Lauderdale, but I would choose #1 over #2. I would also likely sail that itinerary out of Tampa as some others have mentioned, but the Dream is Carnivals newest ship and would be great to have some time on her.

One day isnít going to make that much difference if you decide you donít like ships, and that extra day is in an extra port so itís not like an extra day stuck at sea.

Grand Cayman and Key West are on a lot of itineraries so are easy to pick up. If you end up cruising very much you will likely visit them without even trying.
