That was exactly our thinking and we started to lean towards the Western. But after talking it over last night and reading the other comments, the extra sea day might be nice to really explore the ship.

It's got us thinking again...

We had 2 sea days last year and my kids nor myself, were huge fans. The kids really wanted to be in the pools but they were so crowded that they were completely out of the question. I'm hoping we can try the Eastern in the next couple of years because they will be tweens/teens and hopefully will enjoy the clubs and not worry about the pools.

We are looking forward to the extra port day.

We have did both and I would vote Western if you are the type that likes to be more active. Plus some of the excursions in Jamaica look pretty awesome.

Not that the Eastern was not active and we had a great time, but with more sea days there is more downtime which works for some personality types but not ours. I must agree that the ports are more scenic on the Eastern and the excursions were great. If they could only add one more port stop to the Eastern it would be perfect for us.

That's exactly what we struggle with... we want to do Eastern, but don't want the extra sea day.

Ugh! We may never make up our minds!

Another vote for Eastern. We have been on 3 Westerns and 3 Easterns, not really a fan of the Mexican ports. Actually enjoy the sea days, starting of the cruise with 2 sea days is relaxing and enjoyable.
