Default The Best of Cruising? (part I)

From Fodor's The Complete Guide to European Cruises, 2008 edition.

Just picked this volume up at the local library. I'll try to be brief since it is copyrighted material. What do you think - who's overrated, who did they ignore?

Best Suites at Sea
Queen Mary 2
Norwegian Jewel-class ships
Oceania Regatta (not sure why they singled out Regatta)
Silversea - Silver Whisper & Silver Shadow

Best Regular Cabins
Carnival Cruise Line
Holland America Line
Windstar Cruises

Best Bathrooms Afloat
Regent Seven Sea Cruises
Seabourn Cruises
Silversea Cruises

Best Ships for Romantics
Seven Seas Mariner & Seven Seas Voyager
Sea Dream Yacht Club's Sea Dream I & II
Windstar Cruises' Wind Spirit & Wind Surf

Best Cruise Lines for Families
Carnival Cruise Line
Norwegian Cruise Line
Ocean Village
Royal Caribbean International
(Anyone shocked not to see DCL - too expensive?)

Best Spas Afloat
Celebrity Cruise Line
Costa Fortuna & Costa Serena
Norwegian Cruise Line
Queen Mary 2

Best Sports & Fitness Centers
Carnival Cruise Line
Princes Cruises' Grand class
Royal Caribbean's Voyager & Freedom class

Best Entertainment at Sea - I would think this one is highly subjective
Carnival Cruise Line
Ocean Village
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

interesting list. I'm wondering if Best Ships for Romantics is true. Since it's just my hubby and me a romantic cruise sounds great. Are these ships Seven Seas Mariner & Seven Seas Voyager part of Regent? I think they are but I'm not 100% certain.

Yes - I got tired of typing, sorry to cut that one short.
