Default Need Help Choosing Cruise LIne for 4/5 day Caribbe

HELP!!!
I've have been put in charge of planning a 4/5 day Caribbean cruise for next Jan/Feb for about 10 couples.
I love Princess, but hate the megaships....
Can anyone recommend a cruise line/ship that will do a 4/5 day Caribbean itinerary.
We are in our late 30's, will want at least the same level of service as Princess, want balcony cabins (but remember, hate the megaships - the 1200 passenger range is about perfect for us) and love to have fun!
Thanks is advance for all your input!

1200 pax ship, 4/5 day with balcony's, I don't know of any ships that fit in that criteria, 7 day maybe. Have you called any T/As

My first thought was a Carnival ship, but not certain they have lots of balconies or not. Suggest you check out the Carnival site

Hi Jeannie,
You may want to consider doing a 7 day, not much different in price and honestly a 4/5 day cruise is definately on the short side, especially if any flying is required to get to a port? In the meantime, you can always post in the "bargain finder" here at Cruisemates, and see what some travel agents can find for you. There are quite a few that do 3/4 days to the bahamas, but they are smaller/older ships with less balconies As long as you are thinking about 4 or 5 days, 7 days isn't much different.

Good luck in your search.

Check into Royal Caribbean. Some of the older ships aren't so large and they have the best service of any of the cruise lines. We have gone on two four days cruises, both on the Nordic Empress, but the Sovereign of the Seas is quite nice.
