Default Spring Break Cruise Dilemma- HELP!

Ok so we have to book our spring break cruise(s) by monday. My final options are:

7 Night Mariner of the Seas

OR

4 Night Carnival Sensation
--followed by--
3 Night Sovereign of the Seas

I can't decide!

i agree. i think the 7 day one wou be better cause you have the same people for the whole week. if you do the other two, then you only have the people for half the time. does this make sense?

i say the 4 and 3 days.

cuz you get to meet more people
and true, you'll be with them shorter.
but what if the people on mariner arent as fun as past ones.
then you're stuck with them for 7 days. ha.

mariner, hands down.

I've been on it three times, and each time there is a wealth of teen cruisers. Plus it is spring break so everyone will want to have a good time.. If you do mariner DJ you will be the most popular kid for 7 straight days

I don't think necessarily 2 cruises is better than one.......They always say its quality over quantity.

Really, its what you want:

One cruise would allow you to ultimately make better friends because you have more time to spend and start some quality relationships....

But two cruises would allow you to theoretically make more friends...... however I still think that mariner would have more total teens than those two combined. Plus I am biased and think mariner is the 2nd best class ship in the world (Second to Freedom OTS class)[/url]

So it seems like the general consensus is for the Mariner of the Seas!

id say Mariner because you don't have to deal with the hassle of packing and unpacking and moving from one ship to other.

mariner!
you'll be able to have closer relationships with the teens you meet. In my opinion i'd rather meet less teens and become better friends with them.

Carnival Fantasy- I know its not big or extravagant but i have my fair share of personal reasons why this ship is special to me.

Trying new ships is fun, but the trip to Port Canaveral is the closest and easiest especially during the school year. Next fall, when the Carnival Fascination moves to Jacksonville, we'll be going out of there a lot. Its just difficult to make the 10 hour drive to Miami or 8 hour drive to Tampa when its a 3 night weekend trip.

I would have thought Mariner since you've been on it like ten times...
