What ship is hands down, the prettiest one you have sailed?
How about the ship you thought could use an extreme makeover?
The prettiest one I have ever sailed was the Ruby Princess. However, earlier this year I was on the Celebrity Solstice for a ship inspection and she certainly was just as elegant as the Ruby Princess.
At the other end of the spectrum, would be the Carnival ships I have been on.

When I first saw that title, I thought that Trip was refering to some of our posters.
As far as ships go I love the way the Celebrity M class ships look. I really dig those glass elevators.
Carnival Liberty New Year's Eve 2007
Liberty of the Seas 5/2008+11/2009
Allure 1/16/ 2011
Independence of the Seas 12/29/2013 Top-notch!
I think I'll cast a second vote for Ruby Princess, though we are looking forward to doing some "real" sailing on Star Clippers or Wind Star and think Ruby might be left behind.

...As far as interior I'd have to say the Carnival Conquest because of the theme throughout the ship. Amazing the design of ALL the fixtures, etc. coming from the impressionist's canvas into the modern world of cruise ships. There are a lot of individual things I like better on other cruise ships, but overall it's the Carnival Conquest.
