I want to get fellow cruisers thoughts on two cruises that I'm interested in. Both are 8-night Southern Caribbean Cruises, one on the Carnival Vista and the other being the Carnival Splendor with the same itineraries and departure month. My family and I are looking at balcony rooms and the Vista's rate is $1,604 while the Splendor's rate is $1,074. My question, is it worth the extra $600 for going on Carnival's newer ship? Has anyone been on both of these ships? We sailed on the Carnival Freedom this past week and had a blast and loved the ship.
Here are the links to both cruises:

Any information would be helpful.
