Carnival versus Royal Carribean

Sail Date: May 01, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We have been a long time Carnival customer but last October we took our first cruise on Royal Caribbean and then went back to Carnival this cruise.  The entertainment is much better with more of a variety on Royal.  The food on both is great and my wife loves 24 hour ice cream which only Carnival offers:)  But on Carnival the casino with its smoking policy is right in the middle of the ship where it's hard to avoid.  Royal the casino was on a different deck from the Promenade and that meant you didn't have to deal with the smoke if you didn't want to- which was great.  I don't think there is such a thing as a bad cruise but I'm starting to think you get more bang with your buck with Royal Caribbean.
