Labadee, Haiti, is RCCL's "private" destination. It is strictly a beach day with shore activities revolving around the ocean and a fantastic zip line. No other ships but yours will be in port that day. We have been there six times and I would say that 3 out of 4 in our family will rate Haiti as our favorite day. Do the search function for this forum and look for Labadee--there are reviews and pictures posted, and I think even a map. Labadee Haiti might be a tie breaker for me in choosing an itinery.

As for Carnival being the "fun ships" there is more to do on RCCL than you can possibly take in. Look for ports of call and price. We are brand loyal to RCCL having been advised by Travel agents and other cruisers after our first cruise that if we liked RCCL nothing else would satisfy. We took that to heart and have never been sorry.
