Norwegian, The Haven is worth every hundred dollars you'll spend. Saying it like that because every penny wouldn't come close.

Been on over 100 cruises. Many different Cruise Lines, as of now we prefer Celebrity, best perks and great food and service.

Norwegian. Love the mini-suites, which cost just a little bit more than a standard balcony cabin. Plus they have their on-going "Free at Sea" program where you can get free drinks on board for the duration of the cruise, three free specialty restaurant meals, free Wi-Fi, and free shore excursions. If you like a couple cocktails a day, the free drink package is a big cost saver. Plus you get to try drinks you might never order (especially when they cost $12.00) - like frozen mango daquiri's (YUM). On our recent cruise in a min-suite we were allowed to select two of the free items. If you get a Haven Suite I think you get them all.

We have used most of the lines, except for Carnival and Princess is are choosing. We are Platinum, on Royal and with Celebrity . Used Holland to go to Alaska and just used Princess to go 28 days to Tahiti via Hawaii twice and using them to take a 25 day trip through the Med to Greece, etc. We like most of their ships. They do allow you to do your own laundry plus some other good things. Holland America is good. Royal has become a little too commercial not that they all aren't.

Had a marvelous experience on Oceania on a Stockholm to Copenhagen cruise - smaller ships, good itineraries, very good restaurants.. afternoon tea, if you;re into that sort of thing ..
On a more basic (and affordable) level, have done princess and norwegian both in Europe and Caribbean ..they are mostly ala carte so you will have a much larger bill upon checkout ..

Looking to do an Alaskan cruise in near future .. Princess is in the lead for that trip (land sea packages).. but havent made a decision yet

We do Holland America and have been satisfied since our first cruise which was in 1996. Holland seems to cater to an older cruiser. We have been on 14 cruises with them. Also have gone on Celebrity which was okay but a lot more young folks. We did Norwegian once and never again.

I happen to really like Norwegian, I have taken over 60 cruses, as a professional travel blogger on Trip Advisor I have compared most cruses.

Only line to cruise on, though the new ships like MS Konigsdam are not stylish and stainless steel yellow walls with no rel art.
