Default Driving myself crazy over my first cruise

I have been researching for hours over what cruise to take, I've never taken one before and I've boiled it down to 2 ships. Going to the Eastern Caribbean I've pinpointed it to Celebrity Millennium and Princess Caribbean, I would love any opinions or advice.

How about a 2nd hand opinion? I had a friend who just returned in April from the Princess Caribbean. She had a wonderful time, said the ship was beautiful. Her only negative comment was that the food wasn't near as good as on her last 3 Carnival cruises, but she's partial to Carnival.

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time whichever ship you choose.

I have been on the Millie and loved it. We have also been on the Grand Princess twice.

The food on the grand was much better than the millie except in the olympic restaurant. If you want to spend the extra money on the millie for the olympic, it is well worth it.

Also the millie has salt water pools, which i love and their spa pool is heavenly.

But we would venture on either one of these ships again. I have never had a bad cruise on any ship, new or old. Each one has something the other doesn't.

Choice by destination or price. Flip a coin. You'll have a great time.
