Standing on the balcony watching the world go by in a very peaceful manner and taking in the absolute beauty that nature has to offer. (And, hopefully, trying to capture as much as possible in the camera's eye.)
Love getting on the ship after a long drive or difficult flights, and feeling I have reached home. At least for a time I am in a different place. A different attitude that cannot be achieved on dry land.
This might sound crazy, but for me, even thou we are surrounded by 100's of new friends and 1000's of fellow cruisers, it is the only time that I don't have to share my wife with anyone. When we not cruising, she is Mom, Grandma, Sister, Daughter, command admin supervisor, friend, etc.
So many reasons...and not enough time. Here are a few:
1. Having a balcony and sleeping with the door open so that the soft ocean can lull you to sleep.
2. Taking a break from eating right and exercising and gorging on alot of food.
3. Meeting interesting and cool people from all over the world
4. Visiting exotic places
5. Rest and Relaxation
