So far the comments seem to be what I have leaned my self from only 3 cruises. If less populated and kinda quieter if you will is your main goal, smaller is the way to go. Yes the newer big ships have more stuff, but you would also experience a more crowded cruise is seems.
Oh well, I do have lots of time to decide
! I won't be going on another cruise for at least another year, maybe up to 3 years with all the stuff we have going on that consumes our vacation time.
