Most everyone at CM knows it's very rare for Ernie and I to disagree ..
BUT.. even though there's an additional cost, I think there's something very special about being on a ship New Years Eve. Unlike any other cruises I've done, everyone is out of their cabins, enjoying the festive atmosphere of the ship and the passengers.
And there's a different type of party going on in all the lounges. The energy level onboard I suppose is what attracts me.
