This is totally personal preference. Do you like the larger class ships our the smaller class ships. Although we have enjoyed every Carnival cruise we have been on, I would say our favorite ship is the Glory. We enjoy the larger ships. There is more activities going on and we love the Fish & Chips.
Our last cruise was on the Miracle and it was fine but we enjoyed the Glory more.
We are booked on the Valor this October.
The ship is finely appointed. The food, spectacular. Aesthetically, the ship is beautiful, inside and out. It is well-maintained and immaculate. Cabins are generous in size. The balconies are grand. The layout of the ship, user-friendly.
Everything having to do with Pride was well planned and strategically thought out.
I like the Spirit class ships.They are so easy to get around and small enough to have some really good service. I don't know what the crew to passenger ratio is, but the ships are so clean and everyone is friendly. The food quality is also very good.The last few cruises have been with Carnival and We have been very satisfied. I am an old Celebrity fan, but not anymore. Just mho. Tom
Since they all have different itineraries and leave from different ports I guess my favorite would have to be the one that goes where I want to go next from where I want to cruise from. Guess I'm not too picky about the ship. I'm not even that picky about the cruise line, if I see a great cruise on any line that seems to be a great value, I'm into new experiences so I'll try just about any of them once. All the lines and all the ships seem to have their own following of loyal passengers. I just like to cruise.
I'm with Neil on this one. Just put me on a ship...I don't care which!
My family and I have cruised more times than I can count and just disembarked the Celebration yesterday. Even though the Celebration is considered by many to be the worst that Carnival has to offer, we all had a great time.
To me cruising is always a great experience...when I get on a ship, I never question if I'm going to have a good time. I just ponder HOW great it's going to be!
