Default RCI Enchantment of the Seas?

Im looking at doing a 4-5 night NY to Canada cruise this summer..

3 options / 2 ships I am weighing.. please provide some comments and insight.

1) Carnival Triumph 5 night out of NYC. Stops in Halifax and St. John
2) Carnival Triumph 4 night out of NYC. Stops in Halifax
3) Royal Carribbean Enchantantment of the Seas 4 night out of Bayonne (essentially NYC). Stops in Halifax.

I am only looking for an inside cabin. My previous cruise has been on the NCL Dawn so I am kinda spoiled. I'm looking for a nice ship with a similar experience and amenities. I am indifferent about leaving from NYC or Bayonne. Which line has better facilities, food, amenties, etc? What can you tell me about the ships themselves?

I'm in my early 20s if that helps...

Please give me ideas/feedback!

From the strange-looking boat department: The new midsection that will be inserted in Enchantment of the Seas is currently on a barge being towed by an ocean-going tug, to the Keppel Verolme yard in Rotterdam. It's expected to arrive on Thursday. The 73-foot midsection left the Aker Finyards in Turku on April 24 and will be inserted in an operation that begins when Enchantment arrives on May 14. It will add 151 cabins to the ship's capacity without any additional cost in fuel. The only additional cost to the operation of the new cabins will be the necessary increase in staff (such as cabin stewards and dining room waiters and so forth). This lengthening is rather unusual in that it will be a completely dry operation. Neither the midsection nor the two sections of the ship will ever be in the water until they are all joined and floating as one ship. The operation will be completed in Rotterdam, and the ship will reenter service on July 7 at the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, NJ.

The mid section arrived to Keppel Verolme already on Sunday.
As for the completed ship, she will be back in the US and service July 1.
