We have cruised with Carnival and NCL several times each. How does RC stand up?
RC or NCL
Been 4 times on NCL and our last was on RC and we liked it. I would put RC on par with NCL and in some cases RC costs considerably less than NCL
I've been on RCI 5 times (Radiance, Liberty-twice, Explorer, Vision) and always had a spectacular time.
I've sailed NCL on Pride of America once. The shipboard experience wasn't nearly as good, but the itinerary was outstanding.
That said, I've been advised that Pride of America is a unique ship and should not be used to judge NCL or cruising in general.
We're Dedicated RCI cruisers, however, NCL would be our next choice. SO I suppose that would make them on Par
