Default Carnival over Royal Caribbean

We just got off Royal Caribbean's Sovereign of the seas after a three night weekend cruise during President's Weekend. The ship had been recently renovated however we were on the third deck and their rooms are about 2/3 the size or Carnival's, no cafes in the rooms, and they had several carpet dryers/blowers that were in the hallway like something had leaked. Our rooms had a musty odor which we sprayed LYSOL several times to help with the odor (I ALWAYS PACK LYSOL TO PRIVATELY USE IN OUR STATEROOM). We have cruise about a dozen times between Carnival and Disney, and although our summer time week long cruise on Carnival in Alaska was not the best due to food issues (Not hot, Not as described, Having to wait) the copied 8" X 11 1/2" ship deck plans that were printed on one side for the Sovereign of the Seas made me think they weren't expecting us. I should have just printed the deck plans out at home and because they tender to get to their private island Cocokay, the seas were too rough and windy so we spent a day at sea. The showed Talledega Night in the follies lounge from 1-3 p.m. and afterwards when we went to get lunch we ended up paying the surcharge of $3.95 p.p. to eat at Johnny Rockets as lunch was only Noon - 2 p.m. The slots and tables were due to open at 7:30 p.m. while in Nassau, however the slots didn't open but the tables did. The shows were okay on Royal Caribbean-comedian the first night, a multi-talented person the second night, and finally a dance probuction the third night. Carnival and Disney have their shows beat!! The Formal Night & Captain's Cocktail was held while we were in Nassau, and the Captain's Cocktail was 7:30 - 8:30 p.m., and since we had early dining, we caught the last 15 minutes of it. The food was okay, some things came out lukewarm, not hot. We ate three times at the sit-down breakfast, and each time there seemed to be some problem. The ship looked nice, but I think I'm jumping ship back to Carnival. We decided to take Royal Caribbean beacause we needed the three night cruise out of our home port to be able to accomidate our group of families and the holiday. Only the Alaskan cruise was a problem with the food, so I'd try Carnival again. The casino and piano bar on R.C. Sovereign was too smokey, and we had sailed on Carnival's Paradise when it was smoke free. Have a great cruise which ever you chose! 8)
