"Cunard is my kind of cruise line. I loved the Queen Elizabeth. A grand and sophisticated ship ... no neon or flashing lights or loud music, just serene colors and a lot of beautiful teak wood ... very relaxing and restful. Plenty of activities for adults (perfect for myself and my companion); I also appreciated the fact that we dressed for dinner - it made each meal special."

"The wine-themed river cruise aboard the AmaCello was an amazing experience ... we toured vineyards with their owners, tasted all types of regional wines, and even enjoyed customized excursions. Made great friends with passengers and staff alike. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Stateroom was beautiful and I slept like a baby every night, waking to a new view each morning via our French balcony's large windows."

"A magnificent ship, a fantastic cruise. Superb service; the staff could not have been nicer. The selection of restaurants, and the preparation/presentation of the food, was outstanding. Oceania's suites are terrific - the finest accommodations found at sea."

"The best cruise ship I have ever traveled on: roomy/uncrowded, multiple dining options, and an exceptionally high level of service. The wide variety of activities and entertainment choices (I loved the string quartet) should satisfy anyone's preferences. Wonderful destinations."

"This was our first river cruise and I don't think it will be the last! We loved everything ... Viking did a fine job and we would not hesitate to set sail with them again. The Viking Prestige is a beautiful ship: charming, relaxing, and up-to-date in every way. Food was great ... selections were varied and everyone should find something to enjoy. Our room was spacious ... lots of storage - our attendant was awesome and kept it pristine. The scenery was beyond description (it was the main reason we choose this trip, and we were not disappointed) and ports of calls were nicely done (tours were included)."
