Thanks Paul and Andrew for the follow up. We would love to give Cunard a shot. We have heard so many good things about their service.
Tomas, it's great running into family on board, and always a relief when table mates are family, or family-friendly. Glad to hear of your positive experiences with Carnival.
Ephraim-thanks for your feedback. I will be looking forward to having a comparison after our return on the Pacific Princess next month. I've only sailed Celebrity and Carnival. Celebrity ranks #1 with us. My partners parents have been on both, Celebrity and Princess and they consider both to be fairly even.
