Well, I gotta go with Carnival as well. We've sailed both cruise lines out of Galveston - first Carnival, then RCCL, and now we're going back to Carnival because their state rooms are larger. Food and entertainment were comparable on each line. Alot more kids on Carnival but, hey, I like kids. They are just as much fun to watch as the adults. Both cruise lines have their pros and cons. The beds on RCCL (Rhapsody of the Seas) were absolutely terrible. Couldn't wait to get back home for a decent night's sleep. I do have to say that we had more fun on Carnival. But whichever cruise line you pick, you will have a blast. It's hard to go wrong when cruising!
