The issue of whether we pick a cruise for itinerary or ship came up in one of the recent topics. I'm curious which you value more? Do you cruise for the ship, or for the itinerary, or maybe a bit of both? and explain why you picked what you did.

we vary it. if theres a new amazing ship around or if the people want my mom to check out a new ship we go for the ship. we actully tend to go for the ship most of the time. every other year or so though we do at least one cruise with a cool location.
Ship first. I don't like cruising on small ships..so it has to be big.
Then once I get the ships narrowed down, I'll look at where it goes. Then I'll look at the price.
none at the moment =[
