New to Fodors: Celebrity or RCL?

Jump to last reply

Hi All! I am fairly new to Fodors. My husband and I both in our early 30's are planning a week vacation the 3rd week of March 2013. We are trying to decide between another cruise or just going to an island. We have taken two Caribbean cruises on Princess staying in mini suites and loved them both.
Things we love about cruising:
1. Being on the water
2. Anytime Dining & Specialty Dining
3. Adult only swim/lounging areas
4. Spa & Fitness center
5. ALWAYS something to do (we can only take laying out in the sun for so many hours)
6. ALWAYS some kind of night life after dinner
7. Excursions
8. Being taken care of, service, being pampered

Things we do not love:
1. Only a few hours at each island
2. Sometimes the crowds on sea days

If we decide to cruise for 7 days, we would like to try a different cruise line. We are considering:

Celebrity on the new ship Reflection sailing from Miami to San Juan, St Maarten, and St Kitts with 3 days at Sea

RCL on Freedom of Seas sailing to Labadee, Falmouth Jamaica, George Town Grand Cayman, and Cozumel Mexico

RCL on either Oasis or Allure

Looking for some advice and help on which cruise to choose if we decide that is what we want to do for our vacation, Or should we just pick an island to go to? Thanks!!
