    We had been to CN twice when we decided to try CSS. We love both of them, and had decided to go back to CSS this year when they announced the renovations, so we moved back to CN for our July trip.

    But, we talked to our agent yesterday and we are...

    You will get tons of arguments on both sides, but after staying at CN twice and spending a day at CSA for trading places, I much prefer the CN beach. CSA is longer, of course, but CN is much deeper...
