I like the product as a whole. I think the youth program is fantastic, the facilities are great and they have some of the most beautiful ships and unique designs afloat.

I agree with NancyN. It's the total package that turns us on. We love the friendly bartenders (especially in the Viking Crown lounge), the music in the lounges, the shows in the theater, the room service, relaxing on our private balcony, the food and service in the dining room, the spectacle of the Promenade on the Mariner and the Centrum on the Grandeur.

I loved everything about RCCL except the food. It was "good." Not great, just "good". I am a very picky eater so I could usually find only one thing upon which I could "settle" each night. I remember quite clearly struggling between entrees each night on NCL and ordering two entrees on a couple of nights (much to my husband's horror!)

Other than that, I felt that the staff was amazingly polite, friendly and very affable. All of the public rooms are stunning, the music everywhere was lovely, the staterooms were beautiful (and this was 2 months before the Grandeur of the Seas had her overhaul), and the activities had my kids very happy and very exhausted!

We are cruising to Bermuda next month on VOS and I don't really have any plans to leave the ship and don't feel I am "missing out" (I've been to Bermuda already anyway.)

To the contrary, I fiound the food quite enjoyable, more so than on Celebrity, Holland America and NCL. The Grandeur remains my favorite ship. Crew, food and feel. I take my next cruise, my fourth on her next month.

I have to agree it is the total package. For me, I prefer the Radiance class of Royal CAribbean. It has everything I could possibly want in a larger cruise ship.

I would have to say Royal Caribbean is my favorite mass-market line.

what is your favorite premium line? Also what do you feel is a middle of the road line? Rcl maybe? What is your favorite overall line?

Tom, that is a tough question. I really like Celebrity's Millennium class, HAL's Rotterdam and Amsterdam and everything about Oceania. So I guess my answer would be "all of them" VBG.

I really haven't found a line that I didn't like, so I don't think I have any real favorites. If I had to name one line that I thought fit me the best, it would have been Renaissance. I like everything about it. Great itineraries, no smoking, no kids, no rules, great prices and so on.

Oceania will probably take its place, in my mind.

Thanks for the input. Boy does that NO SMOKING sound good. We went on the Paradise several times because of that fact. We are not Carnival fans by any means but the smoke free atmosphere was great.

I just thought of another favorite thing about Royal Caribbean - they sail out of Baltimore which is my favorite port because it's only an hour from our home.
