If you just want a cruise with the usual offerings, then go with the price.
I agree. We looked at taking a cruise with RCCL and I just didn't see paying the extra for things that I didn't think I would use. My husband and I have taken 2 cruises, both with Carnival, and loved both of them. We are even getting ready to book another one for October. Plus, we love the convenience of the VIP checkin by staying in a suite with Carnival, something to consider with a family, no standing in long lines. I hope I can be of any help to you. Feel free to ask any more questions.
