Just guessing here, but Virgin will probably be expensive.

I have not cruised Celebrity, but we plan to in the future. My son cruised with them and has mentioned we would enjoy it.

We are scheduled to cruise NCL in April, but not on the Escape, I can see where the Margaritaville concept would be fun though.

With Viking gearing up for the Ocean cruiser, and these announcement of new ships and voyages, I see the cruise industry as quite strong at the moment. I am looking forward to the next few years and looking to new itineraries coming up.

I'm looking forward to the new ships by Celebrity.   I like the Solstice Class ship and hope the new ships will be better.  I'm glad that they are not going to the mega ships.  Celebrity is my favorite line.

We’ve gotta say that new Celebrity ships is most exciting for us – we’ve loved every class of ship they’ve put out and can’t wait to see what’s next!

Margaritaville is a close second.  We enjoy visiting them in ports and Norwegian made a great call by making it an INCLUDED dining venue!

We’ll reserve our opinion on Virgin Cruises until we know more but a new cruise option is always a good thing!

Tie between Virgin and Celebrity. Be interesting to see what Virgin brings to the table. But Celebrity has not had a new ship for a few years.

Margaritaville news is pretty cool also just got topped this week.

Thanks for posting the links.  I liked the first link the best about the new Virgin Cruise Line.  That's exciting news in the cruise industry. However, if it is Upper Premium, I doubt that I'll get to sail on it.  I wouldn't be able to take as many cruises as I do, if they were all on Upper Premium ships.  I did know about the Viking Star ship and received a promotional brochure on it.  Maybe I''ll get to travel on it, although I usually prefer bigger ships.

So, I guess that the second link might be one that \would impacts me the most. I have taken three cruises on Celebrity.

I enjoyed all the links.  Gloria
