I've only been on the Sun in 1998.At that point everything was great. Can't speak for it now. We'll be on the Caribbean Princess in Sept and haven't experienced anything with her yet.I have friends who have been on the Carnival Ships and they think they're wonderful.The Glory and the Caribbean are much larger ships than the Sun and Dawn, like 77,000 tons to 116,000 for the Caribbean and I believe, 142,000? for the Glory. So,you'd probably get a more intimate cruise on the smaller ship. I won't go anything smaller than the Sun,and we've been working our way up since then to the larger ships.
The Triumph was in port with us last year and is a fairly large ship.My friend who cruises Carnival often has never had a bad thing to say. The Carnival ships have a lot of pool games, and other activities-where Princess is more laid back.Lynne
