Doug and Sharon’s personal favorites are the small and mid-size ships, those under 1200 passengers. Recent cruises have been on the small ships of Windstar in Europe and the Caribbean, on mid-size ships of Oceania in the Adriatic and Aegean and on Azamara in the South Pacific, Mediterranean, South America, and South East Asia. Among the all-inclusive lines, they love Crystal and have sailed with Crystal in Asia and several times in the Mediterranean. Among the large ships, they prefer Celebrity and Holland America.
