Is this the right place, or can anyone tell me where to go to get information on cruise lines?

We want to cruise around Italy/Greece etc. Rennaisance Cruise Lines had an inticing early bird special - but I know nothing about the company. I called but apparently it is privately owned so I hit a dead end checking out their financial health. Does anyone have any first hand experiences with them?

The reason I want to know about the company is because we were booked on a Big Red Boat whose company went belly up. You probably saw it on the news in October. Luckily we weren't one of the passengers that had to get off the boat in the middle of a cruise, but we did have to cancel and change airplane reservations, hotels, sight seeing, etc. etc. It was a reunion cruise so we had to coordinate with many others. We had charged the trip to our Mastercard - so glad we didn't pay the company directly or we would have lost our money. It was an experience we don't want to risk again.

Any advice? Thank you.

Charlotte
