Default It's Your Choice

If I called and told you that you had a free cruise, and your choices were Carnival, Celebrity, HAL, Princess, or Royal Caribbean, which would you choose?

Tough choice....I need to know the ports. Some lines do certain ports better.

If I had to pick w/o the ports I would have to pick Celebrity.

Talking Choice

For any of those lines, it would depend on the itinerary. Any of them would be a great choice on the right itin.

Secondly it would depend on the ship. I don't like megaships. But again on the right ship any of those lines would be a great choice.

Somehow, if we really tighten it down and say "On the same size ship, and the same itinerary which would you choose?" I would have to reply that is the Aristotlean logical fallacy "hypothesis contrary to fact" and only an illogical fool would answer.

SO ... my answer is that if that is the case, HAL would have the very tiniest edge and Carnival would sink to the end of the line.

Princess. We really loved our cruises with Princess and really want to do another. Of the cruises we have been on Princess had the best entertainment.

Well, this did actually happen to me, a travel agency called and told me I'd won a cruise in a contest, and I had to choose. Of course they tried to suggest their most expensive ones so I'd have to pay the difference, but we did our research and chose Princess, just so we could cruise with entertainer Bert Stratton again.
However, at this point in time, if Kuki called offering a free cruise, I would probably pick Holland America or Celebrity, based on positive experiences most recently.

Celebrity! A friend of mine won a 5-nighter on Carnival. She was not very enthusiastic about the experience and she had not even sailed Celebrity. She said comparing it to cruises on Princess and RCCL, well, it was not even in the ballpark.
