I like Cunard because of the glamour and feeling of nostalgia, and Celebrity because of the quality of food and service. Staff-customer ratio is 2 staff to each customer there I think.

Without doubt Celebrity.while I have only been on one ship with more than 5star rating ,this was the best, nearly all are good some to a lesser degree than others I have cruised many times and I feel that for a little extra you get the best from the afore mentioned line.

Celebrity. ice-cold cloth face cloths handed to you (by tongs!) when you are about to step onboard after a hot Caribbean day; waiters carrying your tray to a table in the buffet restaurant. Elegant-looking ships without US-style glitz. American travel mag Conde Nast vote the Millennium-class ships as the top 4.

My favourite so far CELEBRITY,fantastic ships, staff, food, they just seem to get it right. I also really like Princess, cruised with them for years, was supposed to cruise with them again in December, but engine problems meant we were offered an alternative holiday with Royal Caribbean, this was on the new Freedom of the Seas....this really brought home just how superior Celebrity were, can't wait to get back, will be with thm in January on the Summit for Panama Canal. Happy Cruising.. (By the way an single female late 40`s, usually travel with similar friends) a good mix of ages etc.

CRYSTAL SYMPHONY! Yes, somewhat expensive. But, they have an overall excellent ambiance, most-decidedly superior quality and presentation of food, very attentive service in the cabin, in the restaurant and at the Information Desk. The Palm Court is where Afternoon Tea is served with panache and on one afternoon during the cruise they offer a Mozart Tea when each of the serving staff and each musician is dressed in 18th century vestment. Also, on occasion, in the evening, classical piano recitals are offered in this Court. While all ships have a formal dining venue and an informal lido, CRYSTAL ships also have "The Bistro." What a charming place to meet new friends, have some food from a small but happy array of items, do some reading and be served specialty coffees. By the way, there is no charge for specialty coffees, soft drinks or bottled water. In fact, every time you disembark the ship to go visiting a port, they almost thrust bottled water onto you for your later refreshment! Yes, they have a Cinema... with pop-corm and soda. The cocierge is exactly that. He is willing to search the web to have detailed answers to your questions. What more can I say? Have been on the HARMONY ten times (the owners have since relocated her elsewhere under another name)and on the SYMPHONY twice. Am booked on the SYMPHONY for the Nov 24, 2007 cruise. No, I have not been on the SERENITY: it is even more pricey!! Just as a perspective: I just finished my seventy-nineth (79th) cruise. Have enjoyed CUNARD, RCI, PRINCESS, NCL, etc. But the best is CRYSTAL. True, I have not tried the YACHTS of SEABOURNE, SILVERSEA, or the SEADREAM YACHTS, but they would destroy my budget!! No, I am not connected with the CRYSTAL CRUISE LINE. Just a happy camper . . . K. Arjani (arjani@rocketmail.com) .

Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas has to be my all time favorite. It has everything for everyone and the crew (and captain) are fantastic. You can join in the fun on board or just chill and relax. Bliss.....

P & O are superb, quality but affordable. Extremely high standards and what everyone should be aware of - hygiene !! If you don't get stopped every time you approach a restaurant/cafe/LIBRARY etc, with hand-gel then they are not bothered. Think about it - if a bug takes hold on a ship, then the whole holiday goes down - FOR EVERYONE!!! Celebrity, yeah, OK but haven't cruised on it, Royal Caribbean, have heard it is a bit 'down-market'!! Steve & Wendy Foster.

Yes, if you book a balcony you certainly won't feel claustrophobic. There is lots of room but this is on the Norwegian Pearl (NCL) as this is the only ship I have been on. However, hearing comments from other people who have done a lot of cruises on lots of different cruise liners NCL is one of the best.

I had the heart wrenching news this week that one of my regular cruisers had died on board a cruiseI considered this passenger like an uncle, I have booked so many cruises for him and his wife over the years, I was shattered when I heard the sad news that he had passed away on board Norwegian Jade in the Baltics, he always said that was how he wanted to go but at 69 no one expected it to be so soonMy heart went out to his wife who was still on board on her own until her sister in law flew ou...

If you are a die-hard fan of Game of Thrones or GoT as it is known by us Throners then time is running out for you to visit Kings Landing, Capital of Westeros, which is filmed in Croatia.Authorities in the UNESCO World Heritage site are considering cutting the limit on daily visits by cruise liners from five ships to two.In June, this year more than 5000 tourists from cruise liners flocked to the city in a single day on top of the thousands holidaying there already.Just like Daenerys Stormbor...
