The "best" is strictly a matter of personal preference. That said, I prefer the newer, bigger ships on Carnival. What ship were you on?

The best ship to cruise on is anyone you can get on...

But kidding aside... this is a personsal taste question. Everyone has thrie likes and dislikes. If you didn't like the one you were on, list the dislikes and read about them on the cruise line websites and find one that meets you needs.

I agree with what Karen and Jim stated, and to tag along to their thoughts, I have become a huge fan of the "Spirit class" ships. Those would be:

Carnival Spirit
Carnival Legend
Carnival Pride
Carnival Miracle

The layouts are convenient, they are not "too big" 88,000 tons, nicely appointed. But to their points, it depends on what preferences and itineraries you are looking for.

Take care,
Billy

I am a HUGE fan of the Spirit class ships. We have been on the Spirit, the Pride and sail in a couple of weeks on the Miracle!!

Also "when" you go can make a huge difference on any ship.

If you don't want a lot of kids around, then cruise when school is in session.

If you want MORE of a party atmosphere, then do a 3/4 day cruise.

You are off to the right start by "working the boards" to find the proper "fit" for you!!

Have a great cruise.

I have sailed on the Glory once, last October and am set to sail on it again for Eastern Caribbean on September 29th. So far, it is my favorite ship. I have also cruised on the Victory in 2003 and the Celebration in 2004.
The Glory is a Conquest Class Ship so it is a sister ship to:
Conquest
Valor
Freedom and I think Liberty

Hope this helps
