Default need advice

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 would contact my TA and find out whether you can use your RCCL coupon on Celebrity. Believe it or not, the lines are not completely interchangable. Good Luck.

If you can use the coupon on Celebrity then choose the Zenith, It is similar to the Horizon but I think a bit nicer.

How about the Galaxy sailing out of Baltimore next year? It will not go to Bermuda but the Caribbean and it is not a far drive.

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.
