NCL vs Carnival which do you prefer?
Having now done both I have to say I prefer Carnival due to much larger cabin sizes, better service, food, friendlier staff but some things were better on NCL including the shows which featured a Broadway review with songs from Wicked, Jersey Boys and more as well as Ariel Dancers, Magicians, comedy from Second city. I also like the fact NCL's pool and hot tubs are open till 11pm unlike Carnivals that close early.
