Default Spring Break Cruise<33

i know it's far away but I'm really excited,
this will be my second cruise, i just got off one in June, the carnival Glory(:
i have to go april 5th
but i wanted opinions on what one to go on?
i'm limited cause i have to leave out of Florida
so my choices are:

a six day on the Carnival Freedom
OR
a seven day on the Carnival Triumph
OR
a seven day on the Carnival Legend

reallly i need to know what ship is the best ?

Carnival is really the best for teens.

For my adventure try Royal Caribbean

for more luxury try Celebrity or Princess

One has more sea days then the other, think about that.

I would love to go on Carnival Legend, but I really like my sea days.
So idk what to do either.

I think there are a few other options I'll be looking about.
I'm thinking about going on the Carnival Glory.


I wanted to go on Carnival Freedom, but its only 6 days which makes me mad! Royal Caribbean has an 8 day cruise I could take, but I really dont like RCI[curfew].

Carnival Triumph is a Destiny Class CCL ship built back in 1999; it is structurally identical to Carnival Victory, but ironically, it differs from Carnival Destiny, its class namesake. Her theme is "great world cities" with guest areas like the Paris Lounge, the London Dining Room, or Club Rio.

My cousins (18 and 13) were on the Triumph last December and reported having an enjoyable voyage, so older ship doesn't necessarily mean
worse in any way shape or form.

As for itinerary, I would recommend the Triumph as a better second cruise. You might enjoy the exotic western caribbean, but its better to do the "standard" western caribbean first (Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cozumel) before visiting the exotic ports. The "standard" route is the usual for cruise lines, so these ports are inclined towards cruise passengers.

As opposed to the standard route, the exotic route takes you to some of the more "intimate" ports of the Caribbean; these ports are less frequented by cruise lines and have truer culture than one might find in Montego Bay/Ocho Rios Jamaica, Grand Cayman, or Cozumel. On some of the exotic ports it takes some research as well as bargaining smarts in order to avoid getting ripped off while still having a good time, but other than that, the beaches are usually right around the corner.
