I prefer NCL, because my experience is that they are better at dealing with the solo cruiser who prefers to be alone, but there's much to like on both lines.

Carnival has better MDR food; NCL has...

I must be living on the edge. I only take my daily meds, and usually a couple of seasickness pills, because I usually become ill before I get my "sea legs" on the second or third day. Next time I'm...

This was an outstanding comparison, and makes me think the newer RCI ships might be a better fit for me. It seems the inside cabins are a good bit larger on the newer ships, but are the showers still...

They're the same 3-part bathrooms, with the toilet-in-a-cubbyhole. Inside cabin bathrooms aren't divided.

A 6-day Canada/NE itinerary on the NCL Spirit a few years back, with the unusual port stop of Martha's Vineyard. Everything about that cruise was nearly perfect.

I eat almost exclusively at the no charge dining venues, and find the food suits me. YMMV, but I wouldn't book a specialty without trying the MDR. I prefer the smaller of the two MDRs onboard most...

Thanks for the definitive answer. No gym locker room or showers on the Star. That's disappointing, but not at all a deal breaker.

Thanks for the review. Many of your observations match my own, though I'd give the edge to NCL because entertainment and service are the most important cruise aspects to me. YMMV, and does (!) and...

I'm a solo cruiser, and usually don't get any on-board credit. Beyond the DSC, it's rare for me to spend much more than $50 or so. I take few or no ship excursions, don't eat in the specialty...

I don't. I might email or phone home mid-cruise, but that's about it. I enjoy reading other folks' vacation posts on social media, though.
