Secondly, you haven't cruised in 7 years so you may want to before telling us how things haven't changed
And lastly, you've never cruised a luxury line so you really don't know how it's going to compare.
I will volley back to you and state I am cruising on Crystal cruises in December because :
I love formal dinner and Crystal offers that
I love the higher quality of food that will be offered
I will love the more attentive service
I will love the more classier ship
BTW, If I decide to sell my business (Unsure at this time) I will make up for lost time by cruising multiple times a year on Crystal and SilverSea.
P.S. What you did say was that I should'nt bury my head in the sand...I think you also said that Crystal is one of the lone holdouts...Which could be the reason why I will be cruising with them.
Speak to me in the early part of Jan and I will let you know how Crystal was and I would be more then happy to tell you how the lines compares to other lines.
Have to tend to some business...your volley...
