Default Where will a luxury cruise take you in 2013?

We're curious: Where will luxury cruising take you this year? Please vote in our poll (you can vote for more than one destination) and tell us below which cruise line and which ship you'll be taking. Also, just a heads up: We consider that river and expedition cruising fall into the luxury umbrella along with mainstream luxury, so there are options that include those niches of travel, too. Thanks for your input!

We were booked for Oceania - Riviera in Feb, round trip from Miami to Mexico. However last year we sailed on Oceania - Marina in the Caribbean and it reminded me how I dislike that area after being in the N-S-E segments several times and I'm bored.

So with the help of our TA we rebooked on Oceania - Riviera in September from Barcelona to Lisbon. I like going where you can get away from the commercialism, see history, relax, spoil yourself and sample life away. Now my wife prefers sand, sun and Mai-Tai's, but this time I won.

We are searching for a great Asian one in '14 if anyone has suggestions. We have enjoyed Regent, Crystal and Oceania, but are open to other luxury lines.

Thanks, Russ
