I'm trying to find a fun cruise on a Newer ship for a couple in their 20's. They want to go out of Florida for 7 nights, and are on a tight budget. Any suggestions? They want to cruise in April, I was thinking the Explorer or Voyoger or Carnival Pride, any TA's have a good price?
Well it's a great time to be booking a cruise as the prices are still excellant. Lots of what you book should be basied on your preferances which a good TA is essential to answer and guide you. If you want lots of action and fun as well as a very active water based vacation then you would be hard pressed to do better than a Carnival ship to the western Caribbean. RCI offer much the same with the dining more elegant and the ships furnishings richer looking but the entertainment and activities aren't as great. Princess offers more romance as does Celebrity which also offers elegance but they are more expensive. The eastern Caribbean is more for those that are looking to shop and the Southern Caribbean is for those that love new adventures and cultures. Like Pamda said, the bargain finder is a great place once you find out what ship, what cat, and where you want to go. You may wish to browse brochures and websites like Cruisemates in the ships review area to get an idea of exactly what you are looking for. We are here to help!

The RCI cruises aren't the best priced ones around. In fact, Carnival tends to be a bit pricey too sometimes. In my experience, the best prices are always to be found on Princess. Give them a try - maybe the Golden or the Grand. They both leave out of FLL.
