Royal Caribbean is superior. They have the best food, casino and service. The ships are clean. The food is fresh and high quality. The Casino has up to date slot machines and games. After a RC cruise we went on Carnival... and were hungry the entire trip because the food quality was low. The Carnival casino also mostly had the Bar 7 games which are boring. RC is well worth the bit extra price.
Our family has traveled several times on Royal Caribbean and Carnival. Royal Caribbean does have superior service, food and the pool area is better for kids, although I believe Carnival does have better shows and more activities such as trivia and games on board.
If I had to choose I always would go for Royal Caribbean (and if possible Celebrity). Carnival rates are less expensive than RC though. The trick to getting better food on Carnival is to eat inside the dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner instead of the upstairs buffet. The individual attention is directed towards you and the quality of food is better in the dining room.
Both will give you a great vacation experience as long as you're open to the experience.
The best cruise I had was really my very first, at 6. (There, I said it, 6.) It was on the former Carnival ship Tropicale. The customer service was first-class, the food was the best so far among my past cruises (due to the executive and sous chefs being French), and the amenities were awesome.
Second to that was my second cruise with Disney Cruise Line, on the Disney Wonder. Despite the fact that it was merely a 3-day cruise, I found the food and service better than when I sailed on the first year of the cruising company's operation. (That's when the Disney Magic was the first and only ship at the time, before the Wonder came along.)
