Cruiselover94-If it's Caviar and Chateaubriand you want-you won't enjoy a Carnival cruise,but if it's a great meal with a humble lobster or a simple steak with all the fixin's you want,maybe some great pizza? Maybe a yummy dessert? Then give Carnival a try-you won't be dissappointed!Did I mention the great shipmates? Try it-you just might like it!!
I have been on other cruise lines. Yes, Princess is my favorite, so far. The reason I like Princess better is because it is more elegant to me. There are less children on board normally. But as everyone has said, that's just my opinion. Carnival does a good job. I would think that it would be best if you didn't go on them, because I have a feeling you wouldn't like them. I mean, gees, you haven't sailed on them and you're disagreeing with those who have and have enjoyed the experience. Best wishes!
Guess what...normally I am NOT a CCL fan...we had a bad cruise on the Destiny a few years ago and never went back. HOWEVER! One bad cruise doesn't mean they are all bad...yes CCL screwed up with their security and didn't enforce the NO Children with Diapers in the pools...which is disgusting and I hear they enfore it now. But anyway I'm really wanting to go on the Freedom or the Liberty....as a single cruises now...they off the best rates for single occupancy. So sometimes you need to stop and rethink some things and go on.
I have cruised on Royal Caribbean once, and Carnival twice. They were both very good. However, IMHO, I liked Carnival slightly better. The food seemed to be slightly better. Especially in the dinning room the food seemed better prepared and had a better presentation. The cabins were way better on Carnival. Maybe that was due to the R.C. ship I was on (Sovereign/Seas) being older compared to the Carnival ships I was on (Inspiration & Glory); the cabin on the Sovereign was much smaller, and did not have the emenities that were in my cabins on the Inspiration and Glory.
I suppose could have been luckier on my Carnival cruises compared to those that write negative comments about Carnival. But then again, maybe attitude is everything. If you are always negative you will find bad things everywhere you go, including on a cruise.
