What do you get on a 6 start cruise that you wouldn't get with a nice balcony room, free drinks, and specialty restaurant dinner each night? Answer: about 3 times the cost. This 10 night cruise ran about $10,500 for two (two weeks it was $14K); another cruise with the same intenary would have run you about $3500. I'll make this simple:

1. The free drinks are great - we enjoyed trying different cocktails and multiple wines at dinner (although around day 6 I was down to drinking ice tea - you can have too much of a good think) ; if it wasn't free we'd add $100/day to our bill as a comparison to a 5 star cruise

2. Room was very nice - bathroom had a marble double sink vanity, tub, more space - again a plus (probably hard to match on any non 6 star ship - but then again - how important is the bathroom to you?). The "butler" was nice but compared to your normal room stewart I didn't feel it was that big a deal. Overall service was excelllent!
