Which do you like better, the Eastern or Western Caribbean? Why?
i havent been to the eastern since i was 11, but i went to western for the second time when i was 14. so i remember that more. i like the eastern better i guess. the beaches at the western seemed dirtier and the ports not as nice. but i think bermuda just spoiled me with that.

What are your favorite ports of call in each? Why?
EASTERN: hmm i dont really remember, but aruba was always my fav really. but thats in the southern.. so i dont know?
WESTERN: grand cayman. swimming w/ stingrays is the best!

EASTERN: puerto rico. thought it was boring, not a bigt fan of nassua either.

Which do you like better, the Eastern or Western Caribbean? Why? umm... i really just love the whole caribbean in general. like joe said, eastern for the great beaches, and western for partying.

What are your favorite ports of call in each? Why? i loved st. thomas for the eastern. it was so gorgeous there and i loved that it was owned by the united states so it was very clean and well kept. for western, i would have to say montego bay, jamaica. i loved the whole rastafarian thing. haha. i spent the day at a resort on the beach and it was so relaxing and fun.

Least favorite ports of call? Why? eastern: nassau. i've never done the whole atlantis thing so maybe thats why, but the people there are so pushy from my experience. theres not that much to do other than shop or go to atlantis and if you go to atlantis on the excursions you can't use their water slides/pool area which i've always wanted to do. western: i really can't think of one i didn't like to be honest.

What would be your dream itinerary for a 7-night cruise for each? 10-night cruise?

7 night eastern:
day 1: miami, florida
day 2: fun day at sea
day 3: grand turk
day 4: st. thomas
day 5: martinique
day 6: fun day at sea
day 7: fun day at sea
day 8: miami, florida

7 night western:
day 1: miami, florida
day 2: key west
day 3: fun day at sea
day 4: belize
day 5: jamaica
day 6: fun day at sea
day 7: fun day at sea
day 8: miami, florida

10 night caribbean:
day 1: miami, florida
day 2: fun day at sea
day 3: half moon cay
day 4: grand turk
day 5: fun day at sea
day 6: aruba
day 7: fun day at sea
day 8: jamaica
day 9: cozumel
day 10: fun day at sea
day 11: miami, florida

Whats your favorite port to sail out of to the Caribbean? Why? miami. i love miami. its such a fun city to stay in before departing for your cruise. and its so pretty to leave from. i left out of miami in summer of 2006 and stayed 3 nights in south beach before, and it was amazing. this year i'm leaving out of fort lauderdale, but i'm gonna stay in miami before again because fort lauderdale is only like 40 minutes away from miami.

What time of year do you cruise the most often during? summer... but this year i was lucky and got a spring break cruise too!
