That sums it up for me!

I too pretty much agree with 95% of the list. They just confirmed my reasoning on sailing mostly Carnival for the last couple of years. GREAT BARGAINS IMO.

Well, if you read between the lines it confirms tht Carnival does a good job and still provides a big bang for less bucks!!!

It's interesting how few times Royal Caribbean made the lists.....

Good point James - especially for a book focusing on Europe.
