A cruise ship is a floating hotel. You stay in the same cabin for the entire time but you go different places. Your food and entertainment is included in the price and there is lots of choice for things to do including the option to sit by the pool and do nothing. You can get off the ship and explore the ports or stay on board. And there are cruises in all parts of the world.
I see reading this forum, I assume people are listing all the cruises
they have been on and the yr boy thats alot. Why so popular,
Not everyone lists all of their cruises.
Cruising is addictive from the first one. Once on board you get hooked. There is no better way to vacation! You have it all. The food, entertainment, and the ports to visit. The thing I like too is the friendly atmosphere of fellow vacationer's going on the same vacation and talking with each other. Another thing, is just being on a ship in general. The whole experience just feels right.
Listing the cruises is just one way for folks to know if someone has been on a particular ship so that they can ask questions.
Yes, we are addicted.
I love unpacking ONE time and then being transported to Cozumel....Grand Cayman....and all the lovely places I like to go.
OR just sitting on the deck on a sea day and watching the waves go by to be surprised by the occasional dolphin.
But the real draw is that my 17 year old son with Autism gets to be a "normal kid" for a week. Over the years, Camp Carnival and Club O2 have performed to heroic heights to make his life as normal as possible...and they have succeeded. When he is on a ship...he isn't a kid with Autism...he is just a kid.
There is no other vacation like a cruise, period. The ships are amazing, the food is wonderful, the staff is attentive and caring, the ports are fantastic, the entertainment is spectacular. You unpack once and the ship is your home for the duration of your cruise. The only bad part is having to pack to debark. It's so sad, you know you won't see your on board family again. Once you experience it, you won't go back to a land vacation again.
I don't know if it's the motion of the ocean, or I just wear myself out trying to do everything. Or, I can forget about the real world and everyday stresses for a while. But for some reason I sleep really well on the cruise.
