I have a hard time deciding destinations and cruise lines, does anyone know..Hello,
1. what is the difference between cruising eastern, western and southern caribbean in terms of things to do etc.?
2. I'm not very into sports and sea activities so does that mean I shouldn't go for Caribbean cruises? I mean I love the sun and swimming (pool only cause I'm allergic to sea water) but I don't do beaches and water sports. I haven't been to Caribbean and would love to visit but is there anything else to do, like museums, monuments, sight seeing, fishing, etc.? If yes where should I go (travelling with my husband tentatively April-June)
3. Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, which one should I pick? We would want a nice new big ship but we also want good service. Is Celebrity more expensive and more catered to adult travelers? But are the ships less equipped i.e. fewer things to do onboard? Cause it seems to me the RC ships got more facilities...
Widen your search to include other places in addition to the Caribbean. I am not being anti Carib but I sense that you are interested in history and culture and sadly (to Me) the Carib just does not have the interesting places that you see in Europe, Alaska, Canada, Hawaii, South America, and repositioning cruises. There are some truly outstanding and very reasonable repositing cruises in late September, October and November. You can see these on the travel/cruise websites.
Caribbean cruises are for fun in the sun and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this but in your situation I suggest that you look further than the Caribbean for your cruise.
Hope that this helps,
