A J Theodore:
I just happen to be cruising the boards and this thread caught my eye.
My husband and I are planning a longer cruise for our 30th anniversary.. Your comments are not only priceless, but most likely saved us some disappointment!
We were planning just to book on either Radisson or Crystal because of their reputation as a Premium line, without ever having cruise with them.
I am so glad that I stopped to read your comments. Thank you!!
BTW: Per your suggestion...we are going to try a shorter cruise FIRST!
