These ships are great for first time cruisers, or for those who, for whatever reason, just can't get enough of the Caribbean, but for the rest of us -- there is a whole big wide, infinitely interesting world out there to be seen and experienced. That will never happen on these behemoths. IMHO, they are floating amusement parks. They are, to be sure, great engineering feats, and I may try one , (just once for the experience) but any relationship between them and real ships is purely coincidental. They are designed for the Caribbean only, and not for the most exotic or interesting ports there even!
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
