I don't know whether the line is as important as the itinerary. Some cruises just take you through the Gatun locks at the Caribbean side, cruise around a bit then go out the same way. You should be looking for a full transit from Caribbean to Pacific (or vice versa). The remaining ports of call will probably guide you with regard to the line you choose.

I totally agree, look at the itinerary and see which suits you best also the length of time you can be away and then choose you cruise line on the basis of what it provides, what cost and what suits you. ....Neil.

You might like to check out Sea Princess as I think we saw that she goes from Barbados to Acapulco and/or vice versa through the Panama Canal. the itinerary looked very good and i think if you do the Acapulco departure, rather than arrival, you get the whole day in Barbados at the end! You do need to check this out though as I'm speaking from memory and don't have a brochure to hand!!!

Further to my previous post....it was p and o Oceana (not Sea Princess but identical!) that does the Acapulco - Barbados itinerary....my partner says I got it the wrong way round its best to begin in Barbados and then you get an overnight stay in Acapulco at the end!! sorry for the original misinformation but hope this helps!!!!

Hi, The best Line to go with is Cunard and the best ship that transcends all others is the QE2. However due to some lunacy by a company called Carnival she won't be going anywhere for a while. The next best option would be the 'Blunt One' Queen Victoria. However do not go across the Atlantic on her unless in a former life you were an Alaskan Crab Fisherman or a North Sea Fisherman as the motion on this blunt ship may put you off cruising for life. As a ship she simply wasn't built to cross it. Happy landings, Tennisboy.

My very first taste of Royal

By Isabelle Larder

After 17 years in the travel industry last weekend saw me step on board a Royal Caribbean ship for the very first time and wow, what a difference it has made to my outlook on cruising. Had you asked me a month ago if it was worth paying that bit extra for Royal Caribbean I would have said a few hundred pounds possibly, a thousand or more no way. Ask me now and I would say absolutely.For families I have no doubt that Independence of the Seas should be on the top of the list for your next cruis...

The time had finally arrived when I was going on the independence of the seas, we got to the port around 12 pm the queuing to board the ship and get our key cards were around 20 mins so not too bad, we couldn’t get into our cabin’s till 1 pm so not long really to wait. We went up to Deck 11 to where the pools were and some of the Bars to meet the rest of our group. The atmosphere was really good the sun was shining the music was on it was really nice and of course, I had a drink i...

By Wayne Frieslander

Wayne Frieslander's blog

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...
