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.
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
