Whether you’re taking your first cruise or have been on a few, this question always comes up: “how do I select the right cruise?” It should come as no surprise that every cruise line out here offers something different.
My family & I have taken 3 cruises. The first was Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 on a transatlantic crossing – as our first cruise this gave us too high a standard to measure the others by.
The second was on the Norwegian Sun in Jan. 2006. They had a really good kids program and the Freestyle Dining (no set dinner seating times) was especially good since our children don’t get hungry on a regular schedule.
The third was Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Sea. The kids prgram was good, but not as good as NCL’s. The ship was very nice & we were happy on this trip, too.
One of the blogs I regularly read has a good article called Find the best cruise for you…. I found this to be a good read especially if you’re wondering if you should use a travel agent or not.
