I just saw an ad for Crystal Cruises in my food and wine magazine. I looked at their website and my curiosity is piqued. I've never really heard of Crystal, Silversea, or Ocenaia. I had a quickl look at the boards here, but they are not too active.
I definitely have the "taste" for luxury cruising but budget for the mainstream lines. If I were to "save" for a luxury cruise, what would you recommend?
Here are my wants/needs:
- closed loop cruising from Fort Lauderdale or similar "main" port. I like the airfare options that are available to me by flying into a main port.
- 7 day itinerary - can't get more than 1 work week off at a time
What line would your recommend as an introduction to luxury cruising? Are children ever found on luxury cruises?
