Default 6 day South Caribbean...suggestions?

Well, there's a possibility that my family may be going on a cruise this winter break in the South Caribbean. Which ship does everyone think we should take? The choices are between RCCL Serenade of the Seas or Celebrity Constellation, both from Dec 18-24. Between the two, which would you take and why? Just looking for some input.

PS...Anyone actually going on either of these cause that could be a big factor in our decision.

I would go for Serenade. Its a nice looking ship and it has alot of things to do. It has a rock wall, and the inside looks more inviting then Celebritys. Serenade is also newer, and you will probably find more teens you age.

thanks...right now I'm definitely leaning toward Serenade, Now the trick is to convince my parents that this is definitely what we want to do.

...would anyone else like to suggest between the two?

The Serenade. Like Dan said, it's a new ship, and RCI has an amazing teen program.

Well, nothing's definite but if we go on Serenade the ports are San Juan, Charlotte Amalie, Philipsburg, St. Johns, Castries, and back to San Juan. If we take Constellation the ports are San Juan, Casa de Campo, Bridgetown, Castries, St. Johns, and back to San Juan.

you're doing the other route then...we thought about that but liked the idea of as many ports as possible since it's not like we'll be going back for a while

We were thinking that we wanted more days at sea because we're going on a Voyager Class ship and there is soooo much to do. I am also bringing my best friend, and she has never cruised before, so we wanted her to experience days at sea, too. Your iterinary sounds fun.

I figure that we still have 1 sea day to really do that kind of stuff. Also, I doubt we'll be of the ship the entire time it's in port. But most importantly, it's a cruise so it's not like I'm going to bed early. I can explore the ship all night. But I definitely see where you're coming from. I'd rather go on Adventure but there's an extreme cost difference for almost the same cruise, just 1 day longer. On Serenade, a balcony cabin was around 850 and on Adventure it was like 1300 for the same holiday dates. I'm having trouble figuring out why the big difference.

What exactly was there to do on Constellation? Serenade has rock climbing, mini golf, pool tables, water slide, teen disco, etc. Is there anything similar on Celebrity? What did you do at night and during the day on the ship?

lol...I posted this is April and people are still responding in August. About a month and a half ago, we booked a room on Adventure for 7 days over Christmas from the 19th to the 26th. I'm looking forward to it and I'm gonna have a great time. Anyone coming with me?
