I Have Been On a Cruise Ship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 177 People


    This is actually a goal of mine. I am terrified of being in water. But I think I would be ok since its such a huge ship with tons of stuff to do.  So if I can overcome this fear of mine then maybe I can go on a trip one day :)

    The Ship

    The ship is why I go on a cruise The last cruise I went on I had a balcony room.  Do not go on a cruise unless you have a room with a balcony.  Being able to stand out on the balcony at night in the open ocean with the moon shining down is beautiful.  When the...

    Best Vacation Ever

    Most people don't believe me when I say I went on a 7 day Caribbean cruise alone.  It was the most relaxing time in my life.  I could actually feel my whole body go AHHHHH on the 2nd day.  You only have to pack once for 3 destinations, the food never stops, no...

    Best vacation I been on was a cruise to the

    Bahamas. The beaches are so beautiful, water was crystal clear, and so warm. The food was amazing also. I cannot wait to go on another. If you ever have the opportunity, go for it!

    Jamaica, Grand Caymans, Cozumel

    2 years ago... The cruise was fantastic, the food aboard is great. It left from Galveston to Montego Bay Jamaica, then Grand Cayman Islands, then Cozumel Mexico. Jamaica is a problem - Rose Hall was nice, but vendors are agressive. Grand Cayman was fantastic, loved swimming...

    Norwegian Idyll

    I went in Summer 2012 to see the 'midnight sun' on a cruise to the North Cape of Norway. The North Cape itself was a washout (a waste of money and time) but the next night from the ship we had round-the-clock sunshine. It was a very moving experience and I was very choked up...

    Cruise to Mexico

     I went on a cruise to mexico about three years ago. It was a week-long trip, nothing very special about the boat, actually the boat was the worst part, they did not have adequate amounts of food, the wait was long, and the ride was really bumpy, although that last part i...

    I Like To Cruise A Lot

    I've been on 11 so far and planning my next one now. Princess and Celebrity are my favorite lines, but i've cruised Norwegian, RC, Holland America and Carnival. 10 days is perfect for me to really get to relax. It takes about 5 days for me to get into a vacation routine and...

    Once Was Enough

    I went on a cruise several years ago because a friend wanted to go and asked me to go with her. At first it was okay then once we spent a day at sea I just didn't know what to do with myself. My friend was into having a 'Love Boat' cruise so she was interested in meeting men...

    No Comparison

    This was one of the best vacations I have ever been on.  You could be busy or not and the water was gorgeous and the food - WOW!  I have to say, though, one of my favorite parts was the fact that our cabin steward took some of my night clothes (that I left on the bed...
