Is one line better than another?


I want to do a European cruise. There are so many places I would like to go. Does anyone suggest one line over another? I am more familiar with RCI and would be more likely to book with them due to their discounts I can receive.


Alot depends on ports. If you want to do the 'usual' ports, then all the big ship operators have a set pattern itinerary with very few differences apart from price. However if you want to go to ports that the big boys can't reach, then lines such as Thompson, Island (which is part owned by RCI and has ex RCI/Celebrity ships), Olsen and for the really budget conscious, there is easyCruise which goes to several ports on a 'hop on/hop off' basis.

Basically, you pays your money, you make your choice.
