I have been on six PRINCESS cruises( with another booked for October!) and only one CARNIVAL cruise which was a weekender. After that short exposure to CARNIVAL, I said" never again".
As far as I could see, CARNIVAL was mass market glitz with food that tasted pre-packaged!!!
PRINCESS is more like a 5 star hotel.... largebeautiful ships which have been designed by a genius so that you never feel like you're surrounded by swarming crowds! There are plenty of sitting,eating,drinking and entertainment areas.
Cabins are small/functional with PLENTY of closet space and refrigerators.
Usually at least 2 Vegas style production shows with sensational choreography, costunmes, etc.
Breakfast/lunch buffets are a treat for the eye as well as the stomach.....dinners cover a wide spectrum with" healthy choices" every night......AND they have PERSONAL CHOICE dining which is GREAT!
Great gyms, if that's your pleasure......
I can go on and on........as you can see I kinda like PRINCESS!! They probAbly should give me a public relations job!!
