We just got back from cursing on the RCL Explorer. I have been on two cruises the past two years both on Royal Caribbean, the Explorer and the Navigator. Both were awesome ships and we had a great time on each.
Next year I would like to possibly try a different cruise line. The anticipation of not knowing what the ship looks like, entertainment, food etc to me is half the fun. Both the RCL Explorer and Navigator are identical in most every way, so I want to try something new.
My wife and I ages 43, two kids ages 9 &12 and grandparents in there 60's will be traveling together.
I'm looking for a very fun ship with lots of entertainment, but do not want to step down in service etc compared to the RCL mega ships.. We would prefer to go to the Southern Caribbean on our next cruise.
Which cruise line would be comparable to the RCL mega ships yet different, Carnival, Celebrity, Princess or Costa?
Any pros, cons, comparisons or suggestions would be appreciated.
