Default Carnival VS Royal Carribean

I have taken 3 Carnival cruises and they have all been great except for the one where they put my luggage on the wrong ship.. lol ..but even without clothing it was still fun..

Just curious if there is anyone out there who had sailed on both Royal Carribean and Carnival and what your thoughts are..

How do they compare?
What do you like or dislike about each etc..?
Getting ready to book another cruise.. and trying to see if I should try Royal this time instead of Carnival..

Thanks

I've sailed both Carnival and RCI a number of times. Ultimately you aren't likely to wrong on either.

RCI has the more beautiful ships imho. All their new ships have a wow factor that Carnival's don't. Both offer lively cruise experiences.

I do think that over the last several years RCI has neglected their food dept. while directing their attention to the ship's asthetics.... and Carnival has vastly improved their food quality in the same time frame.

I'm sure you'll find opinions vary and as I said... you won't go wrong with either.

Yes, I think the crowds on both are very similar.

The RCI Voyager Class ships have really pushed and directed alot of their promotion at families, and they've been pretty successful at drawing them onboard.

Carnival is also a family oriented line. So depending on when you sail, you'll find a fair number of kids on both lines.
