Default Recommendation for a cruise?

Hey cruisemates, help me chose my next cruise.
I have been on three cruises, 2 on Carnival, 1 on Royal Caribbean.
1 Western Caribbean, 1 Eastern Caribbean, 1 West Coast Mexico.

I am a tiny little bit sort of bored with cruises because it seems like everything is the same the second time. Where should I go?

I don't want to go to alaska. I don't really want to go to somewhere where I have been before. The second time on carnival was repetitive, so not carnival again. I am thinking 7-10 days long...

Don't get me wrong, I still love cruises, I just want something new. Any recommendations? or any recommendations on how to make cruises more fun again?

haha...thanks

whenever people ask for suggestions on trying something new i ALWAYS tell them BERMUDA! usually smaller ships go there but there is a bigger NCL out of nyc that goes there now. i've been on 7 cruises, 2 to bermuda and both of those were my fav cruises BY FAR! i dont know why but its something about them.. plus bermuda is GORGEOUS!

100% percent agree with bri. i LOVE bermuda and reccomend it highly. its def more pricey thou, so if your trying not to spend that much money a caribbean cruise will defintley be the best fit.

theres plenty of options, use like priceline or travelocity to search for one so you can compare with other lines
