We sailed the Western Carribean last year on Carnival Inspiration and had a wonderful time. Ports were Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel and Belize. We liked both the cruise and the ports so much we're going again this year on the Miracle. I haven't beeon on either ship you're considered but have sailed RCL and Carnival. We preferred Carnival for the size of the room and the food.

I would go with RCCL ANY DAY over Carnival! I've cruised many times with both and much prefer RCCL. My experience has been that RCCL has BETTER entertainment, BETTER food, NICER crew, and BETTER service all the way around. I don't think the ships look tacky like Carnival's either...I'm not into all the neon lights everywhere. However, one thing that is a little nicer with Carnival is the room do seem to be a little bigger...I'm hardly ever in there, so that's not enough to draw me back to cruise with them. They also attract different demographics. It really boils down to what YOU are looking for in a cruise and the things that are important to you.
darcy, were also going on Carnival Miracle in April. Since you have already been to Costa Maya, Belize other then scuba diving would your recommend any other excursions or beaches. We are a group of 14 and 6 of them are kids 7 being the youngest. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,
