miranda, I never singled you out: certainly not this time, Infact I wasn't referring to any comment you made and where did you get the idea I was. As for familycruiser, I do just the opposite and if you read my remarks which you have certainly been doing for the past 4 or 5 months: I never pushed or would push any tour, cruise, airline, etc down the throats of my cliants: I was completely impartial. I did do my best to find out what their needs and expectations were and head them in the right direction. For those who don't have money to spend but want to cruise I would recommend an inside cabin even though I would never have one: for those who enjoy being pampered I wouldn't recommend NCL, but probably Celebrity. If I was asked my opinion of a line or a ship I would give it, If someone came in, said they wanted to go on a Carnival cruise out of Galveston, that is what I would give them.
