I am looking to book a cruise from seattle for R/T for Jul1 or 2nd (depending on the Cruise line).
RCI costs $250/pp more than NCL. Royal Caribbean is Explorer of Seas and Norwegian is Norwegian Jewel
I am looking for recommendations on which one makes most sense based on following preferences in the order below:
1. Attractions at the ports
2. Quality of food (we prefer formal sit down dinners over buffett).
3. Quality of cabins/overall ship quality
Is Royal Carribean really worth the $250pp? Also NCL seems to be offering some "freebies"
Thanks much in advance!
