Just wondering what everyone’s favorite cruise line is, and why.

We like Princess.. They go where we want to go. We feel they're still a good value.

The give us onboard credit for being CCL shareholders and also give me onboard credit for being a veteran. Now that we're Elite in their loyalty program it's hard to go elsewhere..

Holland-America

Generally smaller ships, with more style and less "glass and glitz" than other lines

We have always sailed with Royal Caribbean as they have a wide variety of ships from huge to smaller. The important thing is to pick a cruise line and stick with it as the more you sail the more points you accumulate which translates to free stuff from drinks to wi-fi to onboard shopping and more.

Our favorite cruise line is Viking. Smaller ships (930 passengers), no children, free excursions, free internet, on deck movies with headphones, Free beer and wine at lunch and dinner, free specialty restaurants, and much more. The cost may be a little higher but with all the free stuff that makes it very affordable.

We will be going on a 29 day Viking cruise next June.

Viking river cruises are what we like. Long boats on the rivers of Europe. Small # of passengers and NO BUFFET!!! All meals are 5 (5-star) . Wine included with lunches and dinner. GREAT TRIPS!!

We prefer Princess.
We are at a stage of our lives where we have been most places to travel outside the USA.....hence the cruise itinerary is less important than the cruise and amenities.
We choose their generation of ships prior to the mega ships like Emerald Princess class.
Princess is one of the last to maintain a cigar lounge which is important to me. Secondly they have an adult area called The Sanctuary....it costs an additional $30-40 per day per person....provides reserved deep cushioned chaise lounges, separate crew members (non rotational), fruit and drinks, free tea time snacks and canapes......upper deck all the way forward, shaded while open, separate pool.

Eliminates the crush of the masses and finding a place to sit and relax.

We are almost Elite qualified and the perks keep us returning to Princess.

They do an excellent overall cruise experience with an excellent meal program......in our biased opinion!!

Do your own charters. Skip the big crowds and go where you want to go.
