    Default Fancy a cruise on this one, if you can afford it

    At 27000 a pop for 10 day cruise this may even be beyond Brians reach and its destinations are nothing special to talk about.

    I think I will stay on my Holland America ships. usually around 900 to 1,000 people, and Better Itineraries
    All those beautiful cabins, but how much time would you spend sat in a cabin. everything happening outside it.
    The Itinerary is crap, Alex, Istanbul. most cruise ship Companies have now stopped going to Istanbul due to security, Athens full of Invaders and so on. What a complete waste of money just to go to europe.
    .I would rather do what I do and go to the South Pacific Islands, pure paradise at a fraction of the cost, Already booked for next time.
    Cheers

    On a similar theme a cruise company is planning to introduce cruise hips in 2018, with underwater lounges.
    The plan is that the lounges will have large windows, and passengers can sip their drinks watching the fishes go by.
    Presume they have done the maths on ships flexing and the sealing?
    Regards

    Hi John.
    I would sooner lean on the the rails on a tanker at night and watch the flying fish land on the deck than pay that much,
    Cheers Des

    Of course you can get a much cheaper berth. I have been told that the life boats are availble at around $1000 per night!

    Thank gawd for anglacized names although one name in the following is very appropriate. Crystal Cruise chairman LIM KOK THAY ordered one of his vessels to divert to the West Indies and avoid Miami where it would be arrested for unpaid bills. Vice chairman AU FOOK YEW also resigned.
