Carnival Dream 5 night vs Royal's Liberty of the Seas 7 night

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide on which ship to cruise out of Galveston next Feb. 

 

Carnival Dream - 5 night Western = Sea, Cozumel, Progreso, Sea

Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas - 7 night Western = Sea, Sea, Cozumel, Puerto Costa Maya, Roatan, Sea

 

I've sailed on the Liberty class before (as well as Voyager & Oasis class), but not the Dream class (Vista, Paradise, and a few other smaller ships).  I really liked the hot tubs on the Liberty that hang out over the edge giving a great view.  What intrigues me the most about the Dream is the spa...I've heard wonderful things about the spa on this class & have never done that before.  My hubby & I like to hang out by the pool & the hot tubs normally so I can see this as a big perk for the Dream, but it's only a 5 night cruise and those extra 2 days on the Liberty would be nice.  

 

Has anyone been in the spa on the Liberty class?  Thoughts on it vs the Dream's spa???

 

Also, I've only been to Cozumel on these itineraries...thoughts on the other stops?

 

Thanks,

Jody!

Length of cruise would be my deciding factor.

I would prefer 7 nights. Costa Maya and Progresso are somewhat similar but Costa Maya is much nicer. And we love snorkeling in the West Bay area of Roatan.

Just coming off of a 5 nighter, I would absolutely choose the 7 nighter!

I've never been to the spa on Liberty of the Seas, but it's my favorite ship layout so far.   I loved everything about the ship, including all of the shows.  Everything about this comparison sounds better on the Liberty of the Seas.

I’d also choose Liberty OTS

The Dream doing 4 and five day cruises is a waste of a good cruise ship.
