Fortunately there are lots of choices for all tastes. Our all time favorite was Crystal, but it's a tad expensive. It sounds to me like you might appreciate the somewhat smaller ships of Holland America, they are gorgeous ships and the Indonesian Filipino crews are the finest in the industry. We have a lot of time on HAL ships. Meanwhile we are going on a 14 day Princess mega ship in a few weeks (our first mega ship) and I'm interested in checking our one of the Amaraza small ships.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
