For teens? Carnival, by far.

If I wanted a 1 am curfew with a cruise experience, I'd have gone to Florida with the family and asked them to give me a 1 am curfew.

Carnival.

And, including my vote, I count 4 for Carnival, and 2 for Royal.

As a thought, and to make this vote more conclusive, we might want to consider not counting people who have only been on one of the two cruise lines. If you've only been on one of the two lines, obviously you're going to be loyal to the one you've been on.

True but what if we liked it so much that we won't ever go to Carnival?

Thing is then you have a bias. Unbiased results will provide the best idea of which cruise line is better for teens.

I will note that three of RCL's votes come from people who have only sailed RCL. 2 are unexperienced cruisers (3 or less cruises) and 1 has sailed many RCL cruises on the grounds her parents are anti-carnival. Biased vote much?

i will make a note that will make this forum less bias....a lot fo the people here that are voting that have only been on one cruise line stay with that cruise line because parents or friends or people they know have sailed the other cruise line and did not like it. so in a way its not really all that bias......5 for royal 4 for carnival
