Default Has anyone done both a VTG and SC? Looking for comparisons.

Hello cruisers,
I have taken two cruises with SC.com and enjoyed them thoroughly. I am looking to book another one, and VTG seems to have better options for the times and destinations I desire. Based on the websites, they seem pretty similar, but hopefully someone has experience with both and can compare them for me.

Let me know...

Beth :-)

Hello Beth,
I have been on 3 SC and 2 VTG. I can see no real difference between them or can give either any advantage. Both companies have as far as I am concerened given exactly what they promised and I am happy with both. There could be some minor differences between the 2 but such as different mixers or something like that but both send enthusiastic hosts and keep the activities going seemingly nonstop. The dining table choices are exactly the same, they sit you in your seat the first night and then you may pick your table from then on. Of course I picked the table with the most beautiful babes every night from then on.... Darn shame they got up and left as soon as I sat down. In fact we must have been on the same one this year, the Valor oct, but I cant remember Beth from Idaho. Maybe you were one of the ones that got up when I sat down,,, just kidding!!!! Kingfish

Default It's all about what you, the customer, wants...

Hello Beth,
I have been on 6 cruises as a SC customer since 2002, prior to Carlson taking over, and I have been on 2 VTG singles cruises since 2006. I Prefer VTG these days, mostly because of the value and a few customer service practices that I appreciate. However, over the past year, SC has brought the cost back in line with the competition (and there is plenty of it out there).... so much so that this year I have 2 cruises booked, one with VTG and one with SC.
As for the cruise itself, each offers basically the same activities, cocktail parties, group seating and table changing, singles mingle activities, karaoke party, exclusive group excrusions thru shoretrips.com . They both get about the same number of cruisers at about the same f/m ratio, sooooo my advise... book the cruise YOU want at the price YOU want to pay. You will have a good time with either company.

I have to agree with Chetter since Debbie Popick sold Singlescruise.com and Carlson took over they just aren't as good(although still fun) and Vacations To Go is a little bit better.
