Any cruisers out there?

We love to take cruise ship vacations...and have taken several. Today, I just booked another 10 day Caribbean cruise on Princess Cruise lines.

Cruises really de-stress my winter blues...so We like to book them in the winter. (Southerners call us snowbirds) It's a nice break from Februarys -30 temps...even for a short time.

Anyone else take cruises? What's your favorite line? Favorite destination? How many days at sea have you got? ( and I'm not talking about you Navy guys!) :-)

I haven't booked air yet. Sometimes, I switch up cruises when I find a really good deal that I like...and dates change.

Current prices during Feb:
$1150 inside cabin
$1750 balcony cabin
*includes all taxes, fees, fuel surcharges.

I've only been on one cruise and that was on a Royal Caribbean ship. The food and the service was awesome. The entertainment was great, with one exception, one night the Royal Caribbean singers and dancers were the entertainment. I feel asleep during the performance. Great ports of call, and in the Grand Cayman Islands we explored the ocean depths on the submarine Atlantis going down to a depth of 102 feet. Did I mention the food and the service was awesome?

We will be going on another cruise this coming March when we go on a 13 day tour of Egypt. A part of that tour is a seven day cruise on the Nile. I can’t wait to see the Great Pyramids in Giza, the temple of Luxor and Karnak, and so many other ancient antiquities. This has been on my “Bucket List” for a long time. Egypt, the birthplace of civilization. As a matter of fact, this will complete my “Bucket List.” I guess it’s time to start a new one since I still haven’t kicked the bucket yet.

Oakman,

The last thing you want to do is complete your bucket list. That just sounds like asking for trouble...

We cruised from Vancouver to Alaska, rented a MH for a week, then cruised another ship back to our MH in Vancouver. Terrific trip in Mid May when prices were lower. May do again if these gas prices stay down for a while. Enjoy your trip!

We just cruised on Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas out of Baltimore on October 16th through the 25th. It was our second cruise with RCCL and it was terrific. The ports of call were San Juan, not too impressive, St. Thomas, very nice, Dominican Republic, pitiful, I'll stay on the ship if we ever end up there again and Labadee, Haiti which is RCCL's resort, fantastic. The food, service and entertainment were excellent.
