Well........just off ship last week! Booked again for 3 months from now! Same ship ------- this time we hopefully won't miss the port. The price was good - with the 20% off Carnival gave us.

From what I have researched, Carnival is cheaper.

Royal offers a lot of activities not available on Carnival ships like the ice rinks and climbing walls. For some people those make their cruise for others not so much. If they are offering good deals as they introduce Voyager to the Nola market it may be a good time to check it out.

Cheryl,
Having cruised both lines, not pleased with the little extra that Royal offers for the price. Especially since the extras lean to a younger crowd, Rock Cimbing, Ice Rink, Etc. We take cruises to relax and although when reading all the feedback stating that Carnival is the Fun Ship. We still seem to find Carnival more relaxing and also more fun. This is a personal choice and if you feel the need to try Royal please do so.

Diehard Carnival sailor here but have recently done 2 RCCL's. I loved Royal. Yes, its a little bit more expensive but IMHO I think it was worth it. The ice shows were well worth watching and if youre into the sports activities its a blast. Little things impressed me like a greeter at the Lido restaurant, waiters bring you drinks (water, tea,coffee etc) instead of fighting the coffee station to pour your own. The decor is really nice to look at and the interior hallways are easy on the eyes with nice curves. Again, the little things but you should try it once and compare for yourself. Its amazing how you get set in your ways when cruising just one cruise line.

yes you are so right. I am a diehard Carnival sailer too. Especially since they do my laundry - a big plus in my book. :-) I too don't go for the rock climbing, etc...but just wondering on the general service and shows. I never had a problem with service on carnival. I am one with the motto - a cruise is what you make of it. I do get tired of the same shows on all the ships however. But, guess thats not enough for me to spend a few hundred per person more. We will see........each time I think we will sail something else, we always come back to carnival. Same ports........just different ships.
