Magic (carribbean) or Wonder (Mexican)

I am sorry for the abundance of questions today! I am planning an unexpected last minute vacation in late November or early December and I am feeling the pressure to book something. I was about to just take the risk and book the Magic out of Galveston but I have just noticed that the Wonder out of LAX for the Mexican cruise is also the same price. It would cost me a bit more in airfare (about $100 each) but cruising price is the same. I have not had a chance to look at what the cost of transfers for the Wonder would cost from airport to hotel or port.
What is the preference between the two ships? Is the weather warmer on one cruise than the other at this time of year? Is one cruise expected to be less crowded than another?

What are your thoughts? I am hoping to book something today so I can just start planning THAT cruise and stop changing my mind

Another thought to add to the mix: the Wonder most likely will not be doing the MR again (or at least in the forseeable future). So, if you're interested in that, now would be the time.

The ships are basically the same except for some decor...so no help in choosing there.

Unless you have a desire to to the Mex now, I'd save the airfare and be Magical.

For me it would come down to the itinerary since the ships are very similar. Where would you rather go?

I'd probably rather do the Magical, as it goes to grand cayman and costa maya and Cozumel. We do all inclusive quite often and usually Mexico is an option for us price wise, whereas grand cayman is not.
