My husband and I are taking his parents for their 65th wedding anniversay on a 7 day cruise to Canada/New England. Both the Golden Princess and Carnival's Triumph leave NYC on Sept 17th...itinerary and price is basically the same. I have been on Carnival and didn't like the food, but haven't been on a Princess ship. Love Celebrity for the food, but my in-laws palates are not as "sophisticated" as ours.

Anyone been on both ships?

Do Princess without question. Better ship, food, crowd and experience. While both are owned by Crnival Corp. I believe that Princess is a notch up from Carnival.

Have a great cruise.

Hi,

I would do Princess over Carnival in a heart beat, the difference between the lines are night and day, your inlaws would enjoy Princess much more than Carnival.

I would personally opt for Princess over Carnival any day. Carnival, to me, was more of a booze cruise. Your inlaws and you will have a much better time on Princess.

I have sailed on both and there is no comparing the two - go with Princess!

My vote is Princess for sure.
Don't think you will be unhappy.

We have been on Carnival from Galveston. Thinking about Grand Princess during spring break (galveston again). Do yawl (aka you all) think the Princess is better when traveling with a lot of kids; ages around 5 thru 19? There may be as many as 6 or 7 families. Seems like the cabin choices are certainly much better having mostly balconies - of course there also $150-$200 more than Carinval. We really don't spend that much time in our cabin. I agree food on Carinval was ok. But the kids loved the ice machine, open 24 hours, & pizzeria open many, many hours. All opinions are appreciated. Thanks from Texas.

I would lean toward Carnival for that mix, but you can't go wrong either way you go.

Have a great cruise.

Do you think a cruise at the end of March will be affected by Spring Break ?

Thanks, Anne
