me and my husband were married onboard the nordic empress while in dock in nyc, they did a beautiful job. however, our luggage was lost and to make a lon story short we left on sunday got our luggage on wed., the only clothes they gave us were glow in the dark boxer shorts and shipshape t-shirts. needless to say it put a bit of a damper on our honeymoon. now we were given 50 percent off our next cruise. i cannot decide between horizon or zenith with celebrity. nordic empress is the only ship leabing from new york with rccl, so we are looking into celebrity since owned by the same company, does anyone have any input or advice about these ships. all comments apreciated. thanks.
Presuming that next season they start sailing out of NY again, Zenith and Horizon both do Bermuda out of NY. These ships are both virtually identical, with the same layouts and ammenities. I personally like both these ships very much. They are a nice manageable size while offering Celebrity quality service and food. I've cruised Bermuda twice and it is my favorate cruise destination. You cannot go wrong on either of these ships.
i already checked with my ta and a person who works for rccl who was our wedding coordinater for our wedding they both said we could use it. i am just looking to find out info on the zenith and the horizon. i want to know people's input on these cruises
thanks for your input--much appreciated!! i too have been to bermuda twice once years ago by land, and just last may by sea. i love it it's so beautiful there. do you happen to know anything about the galaxy ship? they say it leaves from baltimore and goes to the caribbean but that is all i know. by the way nyc ports have now returned to normal as far as i know
Horizon or Zenith - I would recommend the Zenith. They are similar but I feel the Zenith is nicer. Ask your TA to give you the STAR reviews if possible, they are usually critical.
When are you looking to cruise, now that Princess and RCI are merging maybe the coupon is good with them too? The merger won't be complete until the end of the second quarter of 2002 though and anything can happen until then. I have seen many mergers NOT happen.
