I have one question for those of you who have done many cruises v those of us who are just beginning...Does the excitement you feel waiting for a cruise lessen after you have done several cruises or do you feel the same excitement and anticipation for your 10th or 20th cruise as you did your first
h2o-I have been cruising since 1977-I look forward to each and every cruise with a growing sense of excitment,each cruise is unique and wonderful. It does seem that I am cruising more and more often-up to every six months now!Guess I've become an addict!!!Hope that answers your question!
I'm with the rest, we are getting ready for our 5th cruise and it will be exciting to see the experience for the 3 1st timers that are going with us. I'm treating my kids and their spouses/friend to a 5 day in February.
We're anxiously awaiting our 17th cruise. It seems with each one, I'm more excited than the last. I know I am hoplessly hooked on cruising, even if it's ports I've visited before. 16 cruises to the Caribbean and I still manage to visit at least one port I haven't experienced before. This year it will be Antigua in October and La Romana in December. Next year, either itinerary I book will stop at ports I've visited before (at least once), but it will be on the Emerald Princess which is a Princess ship I haven't been on. There's always something new to anticipate. Ok, I'll shut up now. The answer the feeling never decreases.
I think that the excitement increases with each cruise I take. Actually the last cruise I was on in April I did not look forward to as much because of some of the fokes we were sailing with who seem to complain about everything. We made the best of it and the only reason we went is because it was our daughters plan and the entire family went. But she also invited these other folks who I will never sail with again. Next crusie to Hawaii and we are so excited about it.
We are getting ready for our 6th cruise. Wish we could do more than one a year, but hey, someone has to work. All of them have been to the Caribbean, mostly because us northerners need that extra sunshine and some nice beaches. Some people swear by Alaska cruises, but I can see that here in Pittsburgh from October to April. We anticipate every cruise as if it's our first. We are cruising in October and I'm already packing. We like the fall cruises better. It seems that the seas are calmer, and the weather alot nicer. Just hope the hurricanes are done. We have never encountered having to detour around a hurricane. Last year, we were on a 10 day on Sun Princess for a Southern Caribbean right when Hurricane Wilma was moving up the west coast of Florida. Never even knew it was happening. Although, we have had a few missed ports last year (Grand Cayman, Princess Cays) due to hurricane damage. So, to answer your question, all cruises are exciting!!
