Some more info in response to the quex: When we were on the Sojourn, there was a very good pianist in the Observation Bar each night after dinner playing low-key music. For en suite breakfast,...

Since you will have a butler, that means you are in a penthouse or above and can go to the concierge lounge and hang out (highly recommended, nice space) and view all of the restaurant menus while...

Funcruiser: What is the closest subway stop to the Cunard Brooklyn Red Hook terminal? Is it possible to walk to the subway? Is it safe to walk there? Are there any fun things to do within walking...

It seems as though we cross the Atlantic each year in April, although most times it has been from Florida, and not from New York. Last year it was Ft. Lauderdale to Southampton, this year Lauderdale...

Hello Bryan: Yes, maybe we did meet on a QM2 crossing as we've completed many, including one from Brooklyn this past October. For this Princess crossing, we are flying into Ft. Lauderdale the day...

Well the casinos on Cunard are not wild and crazy. Sometimes they are downright empty. And even when they are popular, the crowd is rather subdued and quiet.

Having enjoyed a number of sea days on both Seabourn and Crystal, I would say the array of sea day activities is comparable on both lines. The only comment I would add is that the quality of the...

This is good advice, well-known to frequent blackjack players. I've seen similar 6 to 5 payouts on other cruise lines where the table limit is low, and seen it at times in Nevada.

Erdoran: Specifically to your concerns: On Oceania Marina this past December we experienced no crowds or cattle calls, and there seemed to be plenty of deck chairs available on warm sunny days.

As others have suggested, give Crystal a try to see if it is your cup of tea.

In my experience, Crystal has the best enrichment program on the sea, while Oceania has little to offer. Crystal's...

Don't often read blogs, but I took some time here today. Very nice, well done.

I have a hard tine distinguishing between the two, although on this thread you will probably eventually see some postings by some very loyal customers to both lines. I will grant that HAL's buffet...

Best of the Best is held in the Library. All sit around a long rectangular table. The food is very, very good.

Great suggestions. We will be arriving in Boston in July and have a long wait for our flight to California.

I trust the two suites are comparable in terns of square footage. Crystal does offer more, all-inclusive of beverages and gratuities, nice internet benefits for those who have sailed before. ...

I followed the blog/CC postings of one of the Crystal passengers on this unusual cruise. While he appeared to be a great guy and gentle soul, I found the descriptions of the experiences to be...

Quite a few years ago we were on QM2 for 21 days, RT Brooklyn, including 7 days into the Med. It was a great trip and hooked us on the QM2 and ships in general. We loved the time on the Atlantic,...

I had a somewhat different experience on Oceania than Lottie. We recently spent 14 nights on the Oceania Marina and ate in Specialty restaurants about half the evenings. Each time we were given a...
