Is There Any New Ship That Interests You Enough To Book a Cruise On it?

There are so many new ships that just came in service and others planned for the near future.  Are you interested in any one of them?  Have you sailed on one of the newer ships?  Do you plan to sail on one of them in the near future?

Just recently I booked a cabin on the Koningsdam, HALs newest ship. It hasn't come into service yet. I will be traveling with the WOCL Society, a cruise organization. Among other ports, we will be visiting a new port - Amber Cove which is exciting.

Yea, I would dearly love to sail on the new Seven Seas Explorer. But it doesn't enter service until next fall and I shun "shake down voyages" preferring to wait a year or so allowing them to work the bugs out of the vessel.

Furthermore, in all brochures we have received for it so far the itineraries only offer "hum-drum" "Been there done that" cruises that are extremely expensive. One would think Frank Del Rio (FDR) wants to pay the ship off in the first year.

The Carnival Vista has drawn my attention.It will start sailing in a few months I believe Im currently looking into the itinerary for the ship to find a great trip for an anniversary or birthday celebration.

I'm looking at the Carnival Vista also, a friend wants to do the inaugural cruise but I want to Waite a months till the crew is settled in and the bugs ironed out.

I think that is a good idea to wait awhile cruising on a new ship. The Koningsdam will start cruising in April but I won't take it until December. I did take the Breeze soon after it entered service on its inaugural transatlantic. It worked out fine. It seems that Carnival raided its other ships for the best crew. One never knows though, I agree.

At this time, not really. The newer vessels that are coming out are just way to big to interest me. Maybe down the road after I retire.

Sounds like a great way to celebrate.

This might be a good idea. I hope you enjoy your cruise when you do go.

I think that ships are going to continue to get bigger. The economy of scale...

There are lots of new ships out there now and more planned for the future. Each cruiseline is trying to outdo the others it seems.
