Which ones represent the best value? While we disagree somewhat in our answers, you're sure to find the conversation interesting. Our cruise news features how Carnival plans to solve the problem of "chair hogs", a new CEO for Celebrity, and our thoughts on a lady who wore a bathrobe for her entire cruise.
