A number of cruise lines have found that Europe is a great place. Europe has a large number of people who want to cruise and Americans who want something more than the Caribbean.
The downside is that airfare is up this year and more expensive to fly to Europe than it was last year when a lot of people complained about the high cost to get there. Then again, the cruise prices are pretty good so that offsets some of the airfare costs.
If you also notice Millennium will not be back in the Caribbean doing its four and five day runs. It will be in Asia and I'll be on her!!!!
