Back in the 60's, my family and I (a youngster at the time) were fortunate enough to sail transatlantic from NYC to Italy (Raphaello) and back (Michaelangelo).
I celebrated my 7th birthday on the ship. Those were the days of cruising! The Italian food was fantastic and the activites for kids were great! I remember the children's playroom. There was an actual registered nurse as well as crew staff to help the children. One ship even had a childsize merry-go-round on board! The food and service was something I have yet to experience in cruises today.
Anyone out there who cruised on the Italian line back in the 60's? Have you found anything comparable to that today?
