The “What I Like About CCL, RCL, NCL, DCL, PCL, & HAL” Blog Series

OK, so lately I have been getting a lot of grief about me not liking other cruise lines. Yea, I’m kidding, but I thought it would be fun today to go through a couple of cruise lines and tell everyone what I like about them, whether I have cruised them or not. Now, it doesn’t sound like I have a lot of experience cruising on some lines considering I have only sailed Carnival, Royal, and Disney, but…trust me, I am crazy about cruising and know the industry almost upside down and turned around! So today we will start with 2 cruise lines, Carnival and Royal Caribbean.


Carnival Cruise Lines, the world’s largest and most popular cruise line. It has everything for you and your family, including: a waterside/water park area, mini-golf, basketball, volleyball, fitness center, spa, excellent dining, entertainment, and even clubs for your kids! The reason I love Carnival so much is because, the prices are great! Even though you may not pay as much as you would on another cruise line, you still get a lot included in the price which includes: entertainment, dining, activities, clubs for kids, and some of the most beautiful and exciting destinations in the world. Carnival also has some of the best food I have ever tasted on land and sea! The entertainment is decent, and the activities are always fun! That is why I cruise with Carnival so much, you get so much, for so little!

Royal Caribbean International, the world’s most innovative cruise line. Royal Caribbean has got it all! Ice-skating, rock climbing, zip lining, mini golf, surfing onboard, spas, fitness center, boxing, scuba diving, how could you not want to go on a cruise like this! Royal Caribbean has some of the world’s largest cruise ships, and they are amazing! There is only one drawback to the size of the ships though, they are limited to the amount of ports they can sail to, but are you really going to get off one of their ships to go onto an island that has fewer residents and activities, than the ship! Even though Royal can be pricey at times, for what you get, it’s worth it!
