Royal Caribbean vs. Carnival

Carnival vs Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean vs. Carnival Cruise Line. Which line is the best?

Today Sheri and Junior compare Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Line on a variety of categories. Spoiler alert; we are not going to conclude this podcast by crowning a single cruise line as a winner. What we will be doing is having a discussion about specific features and merits of each line and providing our opinions about which line might have an edge. In some cases there won’t be a clear winner, but what we hope to do is give you information and tips that will help you make decisions about which cruise line would be a better fit for you. Here are a few of the topics we will be discussing:

  1. Overall value – bang for your buck
  2. Look and feel of newer ships
  3. Overall cabin design and feel
  4. Best for spending the day on the ship
  5. Best shopping experience
  6. Best speciality restaurants
  7. Best pool side eateries – Guys’ vs Johnny Rockets
  8. Best bars
  9. Best for singles
  10. Best Internet
  11. Best kid’s programs
  12. Best main dining room food
  13. Best drink packages
  14. Best physical activities

Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast

  • So much fun!
    June 7, 2023 by BillieClark from United States

    I love all of your content but I laughed so much at the cruise music reviews. First of all I realized I’m old enough to be your mom! We have very different taste in music and I usually love yacht rock so those comments were hilarious. I did write down many titles and will give them a listen. I’m sure I will love them all. As always, thank you for interesting and fun content.

  • Informative & Delightful
    March 28, 2023 by Cruising In Wonderland from United States

    I found Cruise Tips Tv on YouTube because of their amazing ship tour of the Carnival Miracle a few years ago. I quickly fell in love with their channel & followed to their podcast & Insta account. They have really been an asset to my cruise planning with so many amazing and thorough tips, tricks & reviews. I always recommend them to anyone going on a cruise, but I like listening and watching their vlogs just for fun or if I miss being on a cruise ship too! They are very professional, but also very personable. I absolutely love their genuine personalities, and the way they value each other speaks to me most. You can tell family & integrity is important and that makes everything they do so enjoyable!

  • Made me a cruise expert
    March 22, 2023 by MK OKAYY from United States

    I have fallen in love with cruising, and Cruise Tips TV has become a regular part of my life now. Cruising is wonderful, but I do think there is a learning gap for people used to land vacations. My first cruise, I made all the mistakes. Second cruise, overcompensated and made all new mistakes. Then, I found Cruise Tips TV and it improved my cruising experience ten-fold. Now, I always have a cruise booked that I’m looking forward to. I follow Sherri and fam to keep up to date and to keep my excitement alive for my next sail. My partner and I are planning our first Alaska cruise with Princess this May. Truly, I would never have tried an Alaska cruise without Cruise Tips TV’s vlogs, videos, and podcasts about cruising the last frontier. I’m big on knowing what to expect, and they have made me feel very prepared for what I can predict, and ready to embrace surprises I can’t. My partner and I are planning to have a packing date night a couple weeks prior to our cruise. I’ll have packing cubes, the Alaska packing list, and cruise-inspired cocktails handy. And I’ll have the podcast playing in the background of course. Thanks so much for all your work and content.
