I too used CCL exclusively for years. I've been on 10 with them but was done terribly wrong by Carnival on our last cruise with them. We were going to try another line or find a different type of vacation. We booked the Oasis and will not look back! We have another cruise booked on the Oasis we enjoyed it so much. In my opinion buffet food is better on Carnival but we certainly didn't go hungry. RC doesn't have a nice salad layout as CCL. Entertainment on RC is much better in quantity and quality than CCL. Normally after about 5 days I'm ready to get off the ship but not with RC. After 7 days, I felt like I could spend another 7. I think the staff is about the same on both. CCL closes their hot tubs early but RC has some open 24 hours.
