Default RCL or Princess

I am a first time cruiser and trying to decide if we should go with RCL or Princess. We are planning a Mexican Riveria cruise in December. Any advice. My husband and i will be traveling with our 2 kids 8 & 10. Thanks

Hi H,
While I think both would be wonderful cruises, I think the kids program on Royal Caribbean has a slight edge over Princess. As long as you are cruising with the kids, they all seem to really love the kids activities.

the two lines are very close in comparrison. Princess has an edge over RCCL in the food and service dept (imo). Both have really good kids/teens programs. The pools on Princess are Freshwater not saltwater and they are open 24hrs, as are the hot tubs.
RCCL has more "bells and whistles" features (rock climbing, inline skating etc)
Princess has an outdoor movie theatre with warm blankets and popcorn. Its going to come down to a personal choice on your part. Pick the ship and itineary that appeals to you the most.
