Default Ship Recommendation

I absolutely two of the many ships I've sailed on Carnival - they are
the Victory which is a bit older and on the newer side the Liberty.
I've been on both two times. Liberty for the varied menu and the seafood
section above the main buffet area (one deck up) and the Victory for the kind of homeiness it gives me.. Not too big, not too small..

Where do you live? There are ships that are in the same class to choose among that are very similar. I would pick one I could drive to above one I had to fly to if the ships were the same class.

I was on the Magic and really enjoyed the ship. Optional dining venues were delicious. DR food/service excellent.Loved the fact the atrium was always bustling..the bandbox above the bar, dancing,and a great place to people watch. Good size cabins as well. The Breeze is getting some nice reviews..

Carnival gives good value..I have sailed the Liberty & Conquest as well.

Last cruise was on Freedom ...loved it
Next cruise is on Liberty.

Have sailed on Fantasy & Inspiration, out of the two I liked Fantasy better, might be because it was my first cruise and didn't know what I was in for and I was so very pleasantly surprised, still my favorite cruise so far. I've been chasing the "white rabbit" ever since!

I agree with those above. I LOVE all the Carnival ships I've sailed (That's almost all of them) They all have some things that are better than others, and some things that aren't as good, so it really depends on what kind of an experience you're looking for, and where you want to sail from. Without knowing any of the wants, and needs that you might have, I'd recommend "Breeze". Newest, biggest, and with the most to offer.
