You will be exhausted. Long hours in ports, lots of walking, depending on the cruise you pick, not many sea days. You can figure right now it will not be your last trip because you cant see...

Trans Atlantic similar to what Cunard, New York-Southampton and vice versa. Don't know if CCL would want to add the competition to Cunard but it would certainly be more affordable and would give the...

You will be fine in a "porthole" cabin. It is a very port intensive cruise with only 1 sea day. You will find that there really isn't enough time to enjoy every thing there is to enjoy on the ship...
