Default Infinity or Legend??

I am an avid supporter of Celebrity lines and love all of their ships. I will also be a Diamond member of RCCL with our 10th cruise this coming Sept 24th on Voayger.
With that said - here's the dilemma.

I always take a 10 day to 14 day cruise in early December as that is when I finish my busy season, and cruise prices are excellent prior to the holidays. I am looking at doing a 14 day San Diego to Ft. Lauderdale, 12/12 on Legenod of the Seas with a price of $1,099 per person (no air - I have tons of frequent flier miles to use). We also always book a low priced inside - as we gennerally get upgraded to a pretty decent cabin. We are virtually never in the cabin except to sleep - so we long ago decided to spend the annual cruise budget on more cruises per year rather than pricier cabins.

I have also looked at Infinity 14 day Ft. Lauderdale to San Diego, on 12/20. Virtually the same itinerary as the Legend - one less stop on the Pacific side. The Infinity for inside is $1,933 per person. Most of that upcharge is because of the Holidays (both Christmas and News Years on board). This trip is $834 per person more than the 12/12 sailing on the Legend. That in itself is a "quickie" 7 day cruise that we usally take in mid-March.

We have sailed many of the Vision class ships of which Legend is part of. We have also sailed other M class ships of Celebrity. My question.....is the Inifnity holdiay cruise worth the extra money over the Legend? Infinity might be more crowded and have more kids - considering the holidays. I want to book now so I can lock up my frequent flier tickets before flight selections disappear. I need to fly from Newark regardless of where the cruise begins or ends.

Any sugestions or insight? Anyone do this trip on either ship? Anyone been on Legend recently? We have been through the canal 3 times, so the canal is less of an attraction. I like the 14 days and the amount of At Sea days. That is the bigger attraction.

Thanks for all your input.
Bob

I always prefer to cruise in non holiday or spring break weeks if possible , to avoid the crowds at the airports & on board & in ports.....you have already experienced both class of ship so the call is really yours as to the best dates & whether the extra money could be better used for another cruise???? Just my view.
