Default The best cruise ship overall....
Hi,

im new to the forum, and ive just spent an hour or so reading many reviews and comments etc which has been great and a real eye opener into cruising today (i have cruised before, but its been a while!).

Maybe this has already been asked on here somewhere, but i couldnt find it...

With this forum being so popular and full of regular cruisers - what i want to know is, in your opinion which cruise ship is the VERY BEST and WHY??

Thanks

It is a subjective question with no correct answer, just opinions. I like the Allure Of The Seas because of the variety of things to do, places to eat, and entertainment options. I also like to cruise in suites and the Allure (and Oasis) have great suite perks with a large Concierge Lounge.

There really is no best ..it is the one that works for you that is important
Everyone has there favourites

We prefer the smaller ships with less noise & flash

I can tell you my favorite was the Carnival Legend. Easy to get around, beautiful decor, and I never felt crowded.

It is very subjective. Dave loves big I like small. As much as the Celebrity Silhouette and Solstice were unbelievable I still have a special place for the Celebrity Century. I don't want Merry-go-rounds and rising bars and neighbourhoods. I am looking for small, intimate and traditional. So beauty is in the eye of the beholder ! I guess it's what makes your BOAT FLOAT LOL :OD

Janfred, The Century is one of my favorites also. It's the perfect size ship in my opinion. I think you're going to really enjoy the river boats too.

Cruise Fanatic,

On my wish list ( I don't call it a bucket list !) next is Azamara and Uniworld.
I really think I would love both of those lines from everything I have read !
That is what I plan for 2013, we shall see !
