If it is an intimate relaxing and romantic cruise you are after then you are encouraged to search for a cruise ship that has an age limit for passengers. These cruise ships often restrict children from coming aboard. After all you may be unable to enjoy a romantic vacation if you are on a cruise ship that is overrun with kids. Many times cruise ships with a passenger age limit target their voyages specifically to couples looking for romance. While it is possible to find a cruise ship with an age limit for their passengers you may find it a bit difficult. If you are unable to find one inquire as to where couples with children will be placed on the ship. A number of popular cruise ships work to keep families and individual couples separated. If this policy is in place a cruise line is likely to state the policy on their website. The same information can be obtained by directly contacting a cruise ship representative.
The Food Since all restaurants offer a variety of culinary choices any evaluation of food is influenced not only by personal taste but also by what items are selected from the menu. For example on the first night my wife and I ate at the Manhattan Room one of the ships main dining areas. She had a chicken dish which she evaluated as \"OK\" while I had scallops which were very good. Like all public areas on the Epic the layout and décor of the Manhattan Room was a tribute to the ships designers. Wide open and \"airy\" the Manhattan Room had the look and feel of a fine dinner theater. In fact I was somewhat surprised when our dinner host (one of NCLs executives) informed us that the Manhattan Room was not a specialty restaurant. The other main dining room appropriately called \"Taste\" was also extremely well laid-out and pleasing to the eye. At the center of Taste is a beautiful chandelier (claimed to be the largest at sea) that spirals down from the deck above. Although I did not eat in Taste I am told that the menu is the same as the Manhattan Room so I would assume our assessment of the food would have been about the same (i.e. \"OK\" to \"very good\" depending on the entre selected and of course personal taste).
Certainly everything is brand new and there are certain bragging rights when you can say \"I was on the first voyage of ship XYZ.\" But the first cruise is sometimes a shake-out cruise. The staffs probably havent worked together before and are still trying to come together as a team. They may be inexperienced and going through on-the-job training. And of course a ship is a massive construction project just like building a new apartment or office building and just like a new building a new ship may have glitches in the plumbing or the wiring to be worked out. If you want perfection on your cruise you may want to make sure that youve chosen an established ship.
If there are a couple of days where you are not in port the cruise ship will provide plenty of activities that you can join. They have art auctions trivia bridge lectures fitness classes and much more. And dont forget the spa. Make your spa appointments early since the sea days tend to be booked solid. So if you have decided to cruise the coasts of Europe you need to consider a few things. There are many destinations to choose from with the Mediterranean being the most popular. But you can opt to do the Baltic Scandinavia or the British Isles. Now you have to pick a cruise line that sails in to your chosen itinerary. Some of the cruise lines like Radisson SilverSea and Windstar are small and intimate. These cruise lines emphasis luxury and service. The other main stream cruise lines Princess Celebrity or Holland America to name a few carry thousands of passengers from 1500 to 3000. They are really floating resorts. Of course the costs should be considered too.
