Q – OK, we’ve read your entire site, or 90% of it, and, wow!  Congratulations. So the one question we’re dying to know the truth about. All in, which cruise line is really the best in the world. And don’t be concerned about naming names – we won’t tell any of the other lines you work with.

A – No problem and thanks for agreeing to keep it to yourself. The best line overall is Hapag-Lloyd and their two ships, Europe 1 and Europa 2. In terms of service standards, luxury in every aspect of the cruise experience, and fine dining, they are the best at sea. We don’t think that asking you to learn to speak fluent German before selling you a cruise on this line is unreasonable. When it comes to cruising, as with automobile manufacturing, it boils down to the Germans and whoever is in second place.
