Which cruise? Norwegian, Carnival or Holland America?

Jump to last reply

My mother and I are looking to book a cruise for late December/early January to Western Caribbean. We are both first time cruisers, she is 53 and I am 23. We aren't high maintenance and aren't looking to "party", just an all around fun time with lots of adventure (aka zip lining!), but would love to have fun on the ship with theme nights or shows. We are on a budget, so would like to keep costs down. Both citys are about the same drive from us, so that doesn't really make a difference. We have had trouble finding consistent opinions on other sites or this site. Can anyone give any insight or opinions on the following cruises?

Norwegian- Spirit
from New Orleans; Costa Maya, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; Rotan Island, Honduras; Cozumel, Mexico

Holland America- Ryndam
from Tampa; Key West (I've been here, not sure if she has or not); Belize City, Belize; Roatan Island, Honduras; Costa Maya, Mexico

Carnival- Carnival Legend
from Tampa; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Cozumel, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; Rotan Island, Honduras

Thanks so much!!!
