Recommended line for Southern or Eastern Caribbean Cruise
I am looking to book a cruise for sometime next year going to either the Eastern or Southern Caribbean for no less than 7 days. I don't want to do Carnival on this next cruise, so what line would you recommend for the cruise I am planning to book?
Both Royal Caribbean and Princess have some good itinaries for both Southern and Eastern Caribbean cruises. When going on the Southern, you visit many islands. May-be decide which ones you want to see and look at what ships go there and narrow down your search.
If I get the money I have coming in time I am planning on Royal Caribbean for next year while they are running their current sale, but if not I will probably just find the best deal. Hopefully for my second cruise I will have a travel companion. Can get expensive if I don't.
Leaving from Florida to do the southern, gives you more sea days, and can save you, what can sometimes be, a high priced airfare to San Juan. Leaving for SJ, you get 7 day cruises, from Florida, they can sometimes be up to 11/12 days.
Trip, with her book & tea!

I have decided on a 7-9 day Southern Itinerary, either from Miami or San Juan. From San Juan my choices are Celebrity, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, or Princess. From Miami my only choice is Norwegian Cruise Line. The primary required port of call, due to my cruise companion's preference, is Barbados, which all five lines offer.
