Default How to avoid sales pitches on luxury lines

Having cruised the last time three years ago, we would like our next cruise to be sales pitch free. Can you advise which of the luxury lines does not have the sales pitches of the celebrity, etc lines. It is great to go to a workshop however the sales pitch ruins the experience, being in sales myself.

Let's start with where you would like to go; Europe, Hawaii? And then next, how long might you be able to get away for? Would you like to include a land tour also?

We can all help you if we have some idea of the basics.

I found Seabourn to be the best in this area. They never make announcements or put flyers under your door. If you want anything you have to go to the concierge and ask for it.

It actually got to the point where I found it a bit inconvenient to find out certain things. I completely missed the captain's special dinner because it hardly even mentioned in the daily program.

If you are looking for this style of private cruising, I think Seabourn is your cup of tea.
