Going to take a 4 night cruise in Dec, trying to decide bw Carnival
Fascination which goes to Cozumel and Key West and Majesty which goes
to Key West, Nassau and cococay. Both are same exact price, we're 4
college guys. What do you all recommend?
and which has cheaper drinks?
most important stuff: fun, ages of other passengers, size of room,
The rooms on Carnival will be larger than on the Majesty. We were on the Majesty in March, and my daughter (22) had an interior room, and it was about the size of a closet, very small. The rooms on Carnival, interior, are all the same size, just different decks. They are quite spacious. Check out the staterooms on www.cruisestateroom.com.
You probably would enjoy Cozumel very much. If you like to party, you must visit Carlos and Charlies, a bar right downtown. Also, the beaches are great in Cozumel. My son, (20) had a great time on the Carnival Sensation in May. To get some information on Cozumel, visit www.cozumelinsider.com, and www.travelnotes.cc. They will give you additional information on Cozumel.
Hope this helps you out. Have a great cruise!
NCL Dawn (Repo 14 nite) 11-1-09
RCCL Mariner of the Sea (Mexican Riviera) 4-18-10
I have done both ships, on both itineraries. I am in my 20s and traveled by myself on each of these. The Majesty was the worst experience I have ever had on a cruise ship! I will never use NCL again. I liked the fascination so much, I have been on it twice. In every aspect, Carnival is better in my opinion.
The drinks are bigger and better on Carnival, there were more young people on the Carnival cruises that I have done vs. NCL. The food, fun and everything was just better on Carnival. That is just my opinion. I know that I had a bad experience w/ NCL, and others have nothing bad to say about them. I would just recommend Carnival.
