If money were no object…

Today’s poll on Cruise Critic is pure fantasy. If money were no object, which new ship would you choose? The list includes Seabourn Sojourn, a loft suite on Oasis of the Seas, Silversea’s Silver Spirit or a Courtyard Suite on Norwegian Epic.

Vote for your fantasy new ship!

If budget were not a concern, I’d sail on all of them, frankly, but there has to be a winner and as I write, Seabourn Sojourn is in the lead with more than 43% of the vote. Perhaps the idea of a small, luxurious, all-inclusive ship is preferable to the concept of a top suite on a much bigger ship?

I’m surprised, though, that Norwegian Epic’s wonderful Courtyard Suites are lagging behind at 10%;  they’re the perfect solution for families, or groups wanting the combination of a huge, lively ship and a little oasis of luxury within it. While the loft suites on Oasis, with nearly 25% of the vote, are novel and undeniably cool, it’s the lounge, restaurant and private pool area for the suites on Epic that’s the attraction to me. In my dreams, of course.

Which would you go for? And why? Add your vote – and let us know! SJB

    My wife & I would select any luxury line other than Norwegian. We booked an inaugural cruise on the Epic. We canceled it! No one I spoke to by telephone at NCL could answer questions about various activity costs either on-board or an excursion. Ignorance of information has turned me off to this cruise line. We have sailed on Princess, Royal Caribbean, HAL & Carnival. Each of these lines knew costs & availability of activities. While HAL has great cabins, their entertainment & treatment of handicapped people MUST improve! Royal Caribbean needs to re-train people for better client service. Carnival knows how to have fun! Princess is our favorite in every respect. Luxury is nice when fees do not nickle & dime you to death. Give us numbers we can total up easily & let us make an informed decision. We do plan to try RCL once again. We wish to sail on Celebrity too. Having trained people to provide customer service, I know what it takes. Positive, knowledgeable and supportive attitudes go a long way to creating an atmosphere for success.
