    Nieuw Statendam - Holland America Line

    Pros

    A ship for music-lovers, with venues representing rock, pop, jazz, classical and the blues

    Cons

    Free dining is strong, but some higher-cover specialty restaurants aren't worth the extra money

    Bottom Line

    Perfect for the modern cruiser who is interested in exploration, music and culinary arts

    Nautica - Oceania Cruises

    Pros

    Oceania has best food at sea, with no-fee specialty restaurants and vast menu choices.

    Cons

    Popular itineraries sell out quickly, and longer sailings may not appeal to time-constrained travelers.

    Bottom line

    Nautica offers plenty of amenities in the more intimate setting of a mid-sized ship.
