I think that Carnival would be the best choice for you based on your post. ,I also like the ports much better and since you mentioned snorkeling- the snorkeling in Cozumel is awesome.

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!

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.

Good luck deciding and have fun!!
