Hotel 1898 was wonderful, and well worth the price, IMO. There is a rooftop lounge for drinks and tapas, a lovely little pool in the basement and one on the roof, and lovely decor.

I agree.......but I do wonder if their end game is not to keep Crystal in the European/North American luxury market segment at all.

I hope I'm wrong, though :)

Oh, I'm neither hurt nor insulted by your attitude. You're one of many people who make fun of and disdain other people's priorities. It perhaps saddens me that there are people who still think it's...

There is a maximum number of people allowed on the ship for safety reasons, so they can't simply squeeze more people in a cabin to maximize the revenue. They could adjust the maximum allowed by...
