Both provide an equal cruise experience IMHO. - The edge goes to NCL because of the Freestyle dining experience - but others swear by the Traditional dining and having the same waiter/same table/same company every night - personally I cannot bear being told what time I MUST go to dinner!. RCI ships are much nicer - the newer NCL ones are over gaudy. Again just MHO. Celebrity you are moving up a notch - glass of champagne as you get on board, a totally different quality and presentation of foood, more subdued entertainment. No announcements enticing you to bingo [another black mark against NCL]. It really is hard to choose - if Celebrity did Anytime Dining then they would always have my vote, but at the moment I swing between all 3 - depends on itinerary and price in the end. That probably doesn't help much does it!

No that is great - we too don't like to be told when to eat - I think we will stick with NCL then. Thanks so much.

Actually RCI are trying out My Time Dining on 3 of their ships - Freedom, Brilliance and Seranade so that would be the best of both world.

It’s made up of different suburbs, the most notable one being Fairhaven with it’s old world charm.Our hotel for the night was the beautiful Bellwether Hotel. We each had our own huge suite decorated in traditional style complete with everything you could want during your stay i...

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...
