I am in the same boat....only we have only sailed Carnival.

But from what I have been told...the two are more alike than different.

You can have a set dinner time OR Your Time Dining (like NCL Freestyle)...

Hope you have a WONDERFUL cruise!!

Until recently, I had only sailed on Royal Caribbean and always wondered what the other cruise lines are like. I was on the Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville last month and must tell you that I was pleasantly surprised.

Yes, there were differences, but they were very minor things. The food was great on Carnival and the service was fantastic.

I was concerned that there would be a lot of unruly children on board, but it actually seemed like there were very few children at all. I guess the fact that we went during school time played a role in that.

Anyway, I hope you have the same wonderful experience that I had, and I'm sure you will. Make sure and report back and let us know.

Take care,

Yes, now that our boys are grown...we only cruise when school is in session.

I love Carnival...but you do have to use some perimeters to insure the best cruise.
