Carnival Sunshine - October 1, 2016 - Bermuda ~ First Family Cruise - Review
Carnival Conquest - April 27, 2019 - Southern Caribbean
In 2012 the year I'll hopefully get to go to the Caribbean for the first time, which is best a regular 7 Day Eastern/Western or the 10 Day Southern? In my opinion I really want to get our money's worth, so I heard Southern has the best ports. I saw there are 7 Day Southern but with 2 ports not worth it. So please share opinions I would love to hear allMost people will do the Western Caribbean as their first cruise. It seems to be everyone's "starter cruise". The advantage of a Southern itinerary is that you get more ports, but only if indeed you do. I know RCCL does Southern Caribbean's out of San Juan that have 6 ports in 7 days.
Oh...and WHATEVER you do...at all possible costs..avoid San Juan (embark or disembark) on the weekend..especially Sunday! worse crowd I ever saw in an airport.You can stay a night before and a night or two after the cruise. THat's what we did and the airport was DEAD And our vacation we even longer! YIPPEE! Love San Juan!!!
I did Western and Eastern and prefer the Eastern the most. Doing my first Southern April 2012 (we may be on the same boat if you are thinking southern.
I can not wait for 10 days over 7 and an extra sea day is so worth it to me...
Thanks everyone, the 10 Day Southern Medley on the Emerald Princess looks really nice(has alot of ports I really want to try, Princess Cays, St. Thomas & Aruba) or it would be none and maybe a cruise to the Panama Canal, another destination that work out great for school reasons and I really want to go there as well as my mom (lol)Don't just sit there, book it. We have a pretty good roll call going, but could use a few more menbers.
