Jut wondered if anyone can give me any feedback on the better of the 2 lines for a transatlantic crossing.
Our first cruise was on the QM2 last year from NY to Southampton. Next year we are booked for a 7 night Western Caribbean cruise with NCL on the Star. We received our brochure from NCL today and I noticed that the Star sails from NOLA to Dover ... which would be great for us as we live 6 hours drive from NOLA and Dover is right between where our families live in Kent. This would save us so much time..my question is has anyone done this route with both cruise lines and can you tell me how they compared with regard to handling the weather conditions and sea swells...
