Been on cruises since 1980 on NCL and the Norway and Caribbean. Later did several Princess trips to Alaska and transcanal. Sailed on the finest ships then, Royal Viking Line and NCL (Sagafjord/Vistafjord the tops) and an era only captured today on the smaller deluxe ships which they set the standard then. Have done over 40 transatlantic trips (mostly QE2) and some world routes on a variety of lines, many long done in the smaller line market. Have not done a lot of recent trips, only a couple as noted.
