I have never sailed with CFL. Have done one VTG singles cruise.

I think the main difference between the two is length of cruise and size of group. VTG singles cruises tend to be larger, with most being over 150 people and several being as large as 300+. VTG cruises tend to be 7 day cruises to the Caribbean and Mexico (west coast)

CFL cruises are usually shorter in length with the 5 day cruise their staple. Their groups are significantly smaller with an average of 50-75 people in each group.

With that you just have to decide if a large group (vtg) is more your taste than a smaller group (CFL).

I didn't care for VTG singles cruise. I believe I would have more enjoyed being in a smaller group.

Good luck.

I have been on 2 VTG cruises. I do know the people who are involved with CFL. I have had several friends cruise with CFL, from the time Ann created the 'company' until now....
There have been more negative comments about CLF, in general, than any of the other singles cruise providers. CFL usually offers shorter trips, with smaller groups. The cruise hosts are less involved with the groups activities.

I am the opposite, I have been on 2 CFL cruises one on the east for 4 days, the other the west for 7 days and both had small groups, my personal opinion after the cruises is that I wanted to travel with bigger crowds.

It is up to you which TA you want to travel with and to find that out just contact them.
