Who says "Bigger is Better"?

Bigger is not always Better!
Americans tend to want everything BIG! Big houses, big cars, big sandwiches….(Okay, get your mind out of the gutter!) …and big cruise ships. But is “Bigger really Better?” I think when people put an emphasis on wanting something “Bigger”, they loose sight of the special qualities that make “smaller” things amazing. For example:
Expedition vs Porsche
Mansion vs Small Cottage by the sea
Boeing 747 vs Brazillian Jet
Big Mac vs Sliders
Hot Dog w/the Works vs the Cocktail Weenie

Get my point? Small things are just as special (if not MORE) than Bigger things…it just depends on what you want to get out of it. Cruise Ships are the same. Sure, GINORMOUS Cruise Ships such as Royal Caribbean’s “Oasis of the Seas”, Celebrity’s Solstice or NCL’s “Epic” do offer amazing options. The size of the ship is enticing, and they really are incredible.

I have often said to friends that “If someone goes on a Super Size Cruise Ship and doesn’t have a good time, they must be a drag… because there is something to please everyone”. Entertainment, dining, sports, shopping, gambling, spa & more! So easy to have fun, relax and do whatever you want. The Newest, Biggest Cruise Ships are definitely awesome. But what about the smaller ships?

At one time, THEY were the Biggest & Best. Now considered “Small” and “Older”, do they stand up to the task of impressing guests? (Again, Keep that mind out of the gutter!) I say “Absolutely!” Smaller ships offer the same activities that Bigger ships offer & many attributes that larger ships don’t. In fact, smaller ships actually go overboard (no pun intended) to impress guests. One big plus – Service tends to be a bit more intimate (bartenders & waiters know your name & your favorites!) and special. And Cruise Lines do pamper the “Old Girls” with facelifts to keep them young and fresh, while retaining the classic style we know and love. Some of my favorites – “The Celebrity Century”, Royal Caribbean’s “Majesty of the Seas” & “Grandeur of the Seas” & The “Sun Princess”. I have sailed on these ships many times before and each time more impressive then the last!

So, don’t be fooled by the size of the ship, after all, Small Ships stand right up to the Big Ships, offering a slightly different, but equally impressive vacation experience!
