We just decided to cruise to Mexico instead of flying there for our anniversary in March and I need to make a decision which to book. Here are our pros and Cons but we definitely need some help with this decision. We've cruised Carnival and RC before and liked both, never Princess. Princess has mini-suites for the price of Carnival's balcony. Tampa is closer to us than Ft. Lauderdale. Carnival Miracle goes to Belize and we really want to go cave tubing but Star goes to Jamaica where I'd love to see Dunn's River Falls. Miracles reviews are better and I'm really not sure about the dining thing on Princess. Anyone?? HELP!?

You will like both ships but you really picked two ports to compare! If I had to choose, I'd pick the cave tubing in Belize over Duns River Falls. Other than those activities, neither port is a vacationers paradise!

Check out the square footage of the cabins also. The square footage of the mini suite may not be any bigger than balcony.

your thread posted in the P&O Princess Cruises (Carnival plc) forum has been cross-linked in the Carnival Cruise Lines forum, so it can now be accessed from both forums.

To avoid confusion and to avoid having multiple threads on the same topic, I am closing this one would like to ask everybody to please continue here.

Best regards,

Raoul Fiebig
