    Do you like Princess cruise lines or Norwegian cruise lines better?

    I can't decide on 2 cruises, one on Princess and one on Norwegian. Any comments on which is a better cruise line, and why?

    Both cruise lines deliver a very good cruise, the more important thing is do they both  visit the places you want to go to, another is the cost, I believe Norwegian's rates are lower for similar category cabins, on the other hand I found the food on Princess more to my liking.  Decide how much you plan on spending, then compare them - size of cabins, type of entertainment, cost for alternate restaurants and how many are there, size of fitness centers and what type of equipment, how many pools etc You know the things that you would like to do on a cruise check out what each one has.  Another is how old are the ships you are considering.   I can help you with this as I have a travel Agency just contact me

      Thanks. Right now we are just looking around. My husband uses an online travel agency for bookings.

    Personally, I prefer Holland America.  It is a little older crowd and a little more formal.  We will be going on a Carnival cruise in January.  It is appropriate since we are going with our young adult children.
    Check out the activities and reviews.  Many blogs will describe the cruise line and the people that sail on them.  You can see where you and your husband best fit in.
    You can check the cruise line websites directly and see what they have to say.  Part of our decision to go on Carnival this January is because we wanted to go to the ports they were stopping at.  Don't forget to include that into your decision.
    Bon Voyage!

      Thanks for your response. The trips are almost identical. I have actually cruised with Holland America but didn't like it as they go so overboard on their service it makes me uncomfortable. Plus, the older crowd didn't thrill me.

    Hi Karen:  I follow your hubs and know how much you enjoy cruising.  If you are considering the NCL Epic or Breakaway, it is a completely different experience than Princess since there are so many more options for activities, dining and entertainment onboard.  The new Royal Princess coming out in 2013 would be the only Princess cruise ship that would come close to having as many options.  I am not all that fond of the older NCL ships like the Jade or Dawn.  Princess seems to me to have a bit more personalized service and offer a more relaxing overall cruise.  Also, Princess rewards loyalty like no other cruise line.  More often than not our clients get complimentary upgrades when they are Princess past passengers, where other cruise lines will charge you for it. Just decide if you want lots to do on board or a more laid back cruise.
