Default Help - I can't decide!!!!!!!!!!

Thinking of doing a cruise on the Voyager "class" in August 05. Either the Navigator or Explorer from Miami or the Mariner from Port Canaveral. Which ship do you like best and which port is easier to get to and through? Give me your vote and help me decide which ship to go on. Thanks
Bev

I have only been on the Explorer. It was fantastic and a very beautiful ship. We had no problems leaving out of Miami. You'll have a great time which ever ship you choose.

We sailed on the Navigator last January and loved it. We had no problems leaving out of Miami. We flew into Ft Lauderdale as it was cheaper and had no problem with transportation. As said above you''ll have a great time which ever ship you choose.

As you probably know, Navigator is newer than Explorer (Voyager, Explorer, Adventure, Navigator, Mariner). Navigator does have some redesign to improve it slightly over the previous 3 ships in the class. All of the ships are great though. I would base my decision on itinerary and cost. I prefer Western over Eastern, and cheaper over more expensive :-)

Anecdote: I was on the Navigator in Oct of 2003. The pool sprang a leak and soaked the cabins/corridor under those cabins. That was a first for me!

We loved Mariner (04/04). Arriving and departing from Port Canaveral was a breeze.

I was reluctant about being on such a big ship but the Navigator was absolutely the best.
No problems in and out of Miami...I get homesick when I see pics of the Nav.
The wait staff was incredible.
