To me the best part of the cruise is your time on the boat. I love the extra days at sea on the Eastern so I would vote there.:D

I agree!

We have done both and the Eastern is definitely our favorite! The days at sea are awesome! Much preferred the ports on the Eastern too. Had a great time on both!!

I like the Eastern too. The extra sea days are great. I can live without Key West- ugh! Grand Cayman is nice & Cozumel better than St. Maarten. Overall the Eastern gets my vote!

Can't wait for the 4/17 Eastern!

I prefer the ports on the Western - Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
We enjoy snorkeling and find those ports to have the better snorkeling.

eastern vs western

we too liked the western ports better than the eastern, but there is a new eastern cruise this summer that we are taking. You go to St Thomas, San Juan and CC.

this selection made us booked another trip. I wouldn't have done so with the usual Eastern cruise itinerary.
