Celebrity or Holland America?

I have seen the older threads on this topic but was hoping for any updated views on the relative merits of Celebrity and Holland America. We have sailed four times in the last four years with HAL (two in the Med and two transatlantic). Curious about other lines but have had overall good experiences with HAL. We are a couple in late forties/early fifties, like to socialize with other guests but are not "party animals." Any insights would be appreciated.

try going to Its pretty busy there and I think you will get many replies and much more quickly than here. Have you decided on a specific route to see?

Thanks, will do. We don't have a route in mind -- just like to try to fit in a cruise at least once a year.

Frankly, I don't think there's that much difference between HAL and Celebrity to make a recommendation here. If you've been happy with HAL, perhaps you should stick with them. But if your curiosity level is high, Celebrity is regarded to be equivalent to Hal in quality. Choose a route and go with the line that offers the best deal. I would, however, avoid the lines usually given lower quality ratings.
