I was just wondering bout the "worlds leading crusie lines" list and wanted to know why royal carribean is not included? Its been a while since Ive been on rccl...has the quality gone down? Im looking to plan a 2/2004 cruise soon and usually rccl would be my first choice.....maybe I should wait??
What list are you talking about? Isn't World's Leading Cruise Lines a marketing / advertising tool for Carnival and all the cruise lines that it owns? Since Carnival does not own RCCL it would not be on that list.
Worlds Leading Cruiselines is just an advertisement for a travel agency I believe. Obviously they don't service Celebrity and RCCL. If your first choice would be RCCL than go for it. But since it has been a while since you cruised perhaps you would want to look at what is out there sailing now. Lots of new ship.
You can check out the cruise reviews from our home page of all the ships. There are professional reviews and cruisers reviews for you to look at.
Or just stop in chat some nite and I'm sure there will be lots of people to tell you all about all the lines.
Betty, don't be afraid to book with RCCL. Try one of the new Voyager-class ships. We got hooked on cruising in Jan. '02 with a cruise to the E. Carib. on the Explorer of the Seas. I gave our TA, a relative, free rein to choose for us because we knew nothing and were in a hurry to book. We were so happy with the Explorer that we booked it for this past Jan. to the W. Carib. and are planning to take her sister ship, Adventure of the Seas, to the S. Carib. next Jan. The Voyager class ships are very large, but not hard to get around on and have so much to do. Our food, service, shows, ports/excursions--just everything was wonderful. The ships are Voyager, Explorer, Adventure, Navigator, and the soon-to-be-launched Mariner.
