Default Now I'm Worried.

Someone from my last cruise was like OMG try and get your mom out of going on Royal Carribean.. Carnival is so much better.

She said there is nothing to do on RCI.
and she was bored.
and she isn't the boring type of person.

She was 16 when she went and it was during SB!

ugh i dont want to be bored

i'm never bored on RCI. maybe casue i'm younger than all of you guys and i guess i can say that im probably alot more immature that i can find other fun things to do. but i always see lots of older teens having fun on RCI. so dont worry about it.

Ive been on 3 Carnival ships and going on a 4th this summer, i love carnival. BUT ive also been on 3 RCI ships also, and i would not hesitate to book another one. The atmosphere is a little different, but you can and will have just as much fun on it as long as you want to. By the way im 18 now.

You can have an equally good time on either cruise line. Choosing a line is a matter of preference. In all honesty, the Teen Clubs and Activities on both cruise lines are very similar and in some cases identical. Both lines play the same games and have similar activities on their teen schedule. When it comes down to the clubs themselves, they play the same music and host the same atmosphere. Choosing a ship shouldnt be based on the oppinions of others or the teen club, it should be chosen based on whether or not the ship's specifications meet what it is that you desire for your vacation. As a Diamond Plus, RCI member and a multi-level Platinum Carnival traveller, I can honestly say that the choice between the 2 ships is really not that much different. The oppinions you hear from others, as well as reviews are based off of their personal experiences. It should be your choice on which line you choose. If someone takes a cruise that isnt outgoing and isnt open to the groups, they might have a poor cruise experience, and then blame it on that ship or cruise line, because we all know, we seldom take responsibility for our own choices in cases such as that. Don't base your cruise choices on the oppinion of others, look up the ships and choose based on what you want.

for me, it doesnt matter what line or what ship..
it's all about the people. i would go on any cruise, it doesn't matter. cuz you never know what kind of people are going to be on it until the cruise starts so you can't really pick.

i've met the best people on NCL & rccl.
and the worst on carnival..
but we're going on carnival again.
so i'm hoping this time it'll be a little bit better.

on my carnival cruise compared to royal caribbean.. carnival was wayyy more laid back regarding the teen clubs and stuff. and just like a constant party. food was good and dinner was fun. they do more dancing and singing during dinner on carnival then royal caribbean.
