Myself I would choose either of the Carnival cruises. We happen to like Carnival over Royal. But I don't think you can go wrong on any of the 3.

To help decide you need to see what the costs for each one is and decided then, make sure you are comparing the same type of cabin.

I suggest either one of the Carnival cruises - even though one of them starts in San Juan the ports of call are not that different.

IF you can get a cheap flight to San Juan I would take the Victory, but otherwise I would opt for the valor.

The Royal caribbean ships of that class are nice, but I think at your age you will have more fun on Carnival. I am assuming you like a little interaction with other people - dancing at night, etc.

I don't see many differences on your itinerary - so it is mostly a matter of the ship.

The two carnival ships are pretty similar - but I like the southern itinerary better - but not if you have to pay a lot more to get there.

I like the Royal Caribbean itinerary; have been to Barbados; St. Maartan, and San Juan. Are you traveling with family or friends; that will make a big difference as to how much fun u can have.

I would go with one of the Carnival cruises since they are cheaper. You'll have more money to blow while on the cruise.

I am traveling with my boyfriend. I think i will go witht he Carnival but now I need to decide if I should do the Valor leaving from Miami with less ports or San Juan with more. Anyone have an opinion on that?

sherri, since it will be Carnival which one better fits your budget? Go with that one.

Moiraine March 16th, 2011 01:16 PM

I agree...do the math. The one from San Juan would be nice but it is going to add to the cost. If you have the money that would be my pick, but the other one would be a nice cruise too, and I am sure cheaper without the airfare to San Juan.

if you can swing the airfare to San Juan, go for the Southern route, great ports

Thank You
 
I have am going with the Victory out of San Juan. Thanks now I just need to pick my room!

Moiraine March 17th, 2011 01:36 PM

I'm sure you'll have a nice cruise.
