I myself have never had the experience of traveling with royal, and I have only traveled with their worst or best (depends how you want to look at it) competitor, Carnival. Carnival is a wonderful, budget line, and I was wondering if RCCL is worth the higher price for a 13 year old...just wondering.
We leave on Sunday on the EOS, will post when I get back. The Voyager class ships offer alot more for young people to do(rock climing wall, ice rink etc). We enjoy Carnival also, this is our first RC cruise. Look for my ship review when we get back
