It is called the Pullmantur Cruise Line. It is with a Canadaian Travel Company "Go Direct" First time I have ever heard of it, itinerary looks great and the price includes all drinks and food for $1199 Ca. Anyone have any input on this?
Thanks
Leigh

Pullmantur was recently bought by RCCL/Celebrity cruises

See news at bottom of page http://www.cruiseserver.net/travelpage/news/c_news.asp

And that photo is of the Holiday Dream, which was formerly the SuperStar Aries, and before that the Europa. See the lineage here.

Thank you for all that info. Knew I could count on you 3 guys. That picture is great SONNYV, glad someone is thinking of me out there. Ship looks very small I wonder how well she would do in rough waters . Question is...would any of you sail this ship? The price, if I am not mistaken if for air/cruise along with all incl food & bev. I would love to talk to someone who has experienced this. Wondering what the meals are like and type of drinks you actually get??? One reason I love cruising is you are not limited to which brand of type of drink ie. Bacardi, Baileys.I know when you go to all inclusive resorts you are stuck with the no name brands and everything is served in plastic.

I wonder if the ships are still operating "business as usual" since some will be going to Celebrity and RCCL.
What ship are they offering I looked ad "Go Direct" website but it didn't give any dates or prices, that I could find.

Hi Lyn
1st cruise sails Jan 15/07. Cost for an inside cabin came up as 1399.00 total taxes incl. and Can$. Ship is only 39,000 tons. I sure hope anyone who sets sail Jan 15th is on cruise chat so we can get the scoop. Sounds interesting, like the idea of the all-incl. and airfare to D.R. + you visit 6 ports and since you are the only tour travelling there is no chance of missing the ship and if the ship is late they put you up in a hotel so you avoid the extra cost of staying the day before & after. (like we have done)Still a little unsure. Now why can't the bigger ships offer this kind of deal???

Thanks Leigh
I wonder if they will have more Canadians than spanish passengers.
You might have a look on the cruise critic board to see if any have done this cruise.

From what I understand of that line, they are primarily focused on the European market. You'll definitely have a different onboard experience than you would on RCI, Celebrity or a similar line.

That's not necessarily bad, but it may not be what you're expecting.

Finally, I'm pretty sure that English is not the primary onboard language which may also be a concern for you.

Definately worth looking into. I am trying to find SOMEONE who has been on this ship but have had no luck. Guess I will have to wait till someone comes across my post. Thanks for all the input. Maybe come January we will hear more about it. Go Direct is pretty popular in Canada, Ottawa & Montreal anyway so I would think anyone booking this cruise would be from around the area. I wonder if they are refurb. before they set sail in Jan.
