Is it worth it for the money? That is a question only you can decide. I have always thought the price we paid were worth it. We enjoy sea the sea days.
Which December? This December 2018? If so, so will we. We get on in Venice on Nov. 23rd. If you get a chance please give us a shout. Cabin 7114. Don't get the idea that we are upper crust types, first full suite ever. Sister-in-Law is joining us was why we got the big cabin.
But she is scared of the long consecutive days on the ocean, so is getting off in Rome, couldn't get her to change her mind even though she paid all the way to Florida. This will be our number eight Trans-Atlantic, four west and four east. Never had unpleasant seas, since they go out of their way on most cruise lines to avoid snotty weather and high seas. Maybe one might consider our first Atlantic as an exception with regard to "rough" since we left New York for the Mediterranean and had to divert south, we had the dance floor to ourselves for the first couple of days, 1997 in early April.
As far as cost, we find a lot of sea days are not all that desirable for most cruisers, so the price is adjusted downward accordingly. We love sea days. We find the older you get the more you like them.
