Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Horner (05 Oct 08 16:37)

FOUR STAR. ....I am not a lover of P&O so would never recommend them but would recommend their sister company Princess, with Royal Caribbean I would recommend the Radiance Class and Cunard are steady. I would not recommend NCL or Costa who are too specialised in certain aspects. Most of the others are three star or less in my opinion. FIVE STAR. .... Celebrity and Holland America just creep into this category and are worth mentioning. Azamara, a sister to Celebrity, certainly have my vote mainly because of price and attributes for the five stars after that you have the more expensive section of Oceania ( not to be confused with P&O's Oceana), Seabourn, Crystal, Regent and Silversea with the best last. Just a warning ....once you start it is almost impossible to stop cruising. ..... Neil .

Princess Cruises - Sea Princess do 14/15 nights from Barbados and Montego Bay on alternate Saturdays from Nov -April 09. Popular with all ages, but in particular the 40-60 age group. (The 15th night is actually the flight back!).

P&O do 14 day trips (15 nights counting overnight flight back) to the Caribbean, some of which have direct non stop flights from Belfast to Barbados, which will save you having to connect in England. So get the brochure and look up the ones with Belfast flights. P&O are normally very good.

Hi, Agree with most of the answers except Ingle from Rugby. We rate all the American lines over P&O our advice pick a new ship. We would say Celebrity have the edge on quality however Princess and RCI are both good. Always check the cruise only price plus flights as we so far (10 years) have always done this and saved a lot.

You will obviously get differing veiws from any group of people but if it's 5 star then Celebrity, Holland America are probably the best in that catorgery, 4 star lines are RCI, Princess, P&O. Look first of all at the Reveiw section (Big Yellow Button top left) & read the comments of past cruisers & start to build a picture of whats right for you. Formal/informal, Kids/no Kids, Quality food or Dinner on a Tray, that sort of thing. Speak to a Cruise Specialist like the Freephone number top right of this page & get proper advice & guidance. Don't go down the High Street & get sold down the river (pun intended) as there are too many tales of woe come on to this site who never got what they expected. Good Luck. Wilba.
