After cruising with Carninval 5 times , I cruised with Princess for the first time last May. The things I liked best were: the pools being open, unlike the short period of carnival pools. The buffets were much better then Carnival. We really liked the anytime dining option. Also I was shocked on the high number of families and small children on board especially for early May. I always enjoyed Carnival and will probaly cruise with them again once they offer anytime dining. Until then I will stay with Princess. I do think Princess was a notch nicer. Have a great trip.
