I cut up my repeat cruiser card from "NCL" after giving them 2 tries. Both bad and am now "Diamond Plus" with "RCI" so you know who gets my vote! Also, there has been a lot of discussion on here about the Radiance class ships lately and it's almost always positive. Your DH might like the "Freestyle" dining but there is still much to be said for the traditional seating. On a longer cruise like this your wait staff really gets to know you and your likes/dislikes. Very helpful and for my 2 pennies, it enhances the voyage.
