In the last month we have had the best and the worst cruise experience. We cruised to Southampton England on the Independence of the Seas and had a wonderful time. The ship was awsome, the food was great and the entertainment was some of the best we have ever had the opportunity to see on a cruise ship. All of which were part of the cruise price. On the other hand we cruised back to New York on the new Norwegian ship the Breakaway and had the worst expeience. The ship was OK, the food was poor to bad and the entertaiment was poor with the exception of one show, the Cirque of Dreams. They charged for the restaurants food that were not included in the cruise package($15-$40). They charged for several of thier entertainment offerings ($15-$40), and they were poor on top of it.

The Royal Carribean cruise line provides the best price with the great quality we have gotten to expect.
