Anyone getting tired of cruising ?

i guess I could be stoned ( biblically ) for asking that question, and obviously I’m asking people that have been at this for 20 years and have seen lots of changes.

Are you looking for or at least open to trying something else?

Theres lots of things I was and am tired of.....the things I could "fix",especially after I retired... I did, the rest I ignore....but cruising? never...trying something else??? like what? leave $$ out of it...I can do almost anything...Ive found no substitute for a well run cruise ship...

I do get "bored" with the same islands over and over after a bit, but that just makes me look for new itineraries, ships, cruise lines and/or fun people with which to cruise. As long as we are healthy enough to enjoy the adventure I think we'll keep cruising. Since we have a second passion that involves travel and gives us a bit of a change, I think we are doing OK for now. We are always open to something new as long as we can afford it both financially and physically.

Not yet. Not a fan of the 7 plus days on resorts. We do like the Trafalgar bus tours.

Like Aunt Pinkie, I am getting tired of the Caribbean -- not the shipboard experience, but the ports.

I don't think I would enjoy a resort experience, and don't much feel like touring the US.

That leaves me with Europe and Asia tours, either by land or sea.

Since I like the theory of cruising (visit several locations without unpacking) I will continue to cruise -- just adjusting the itinerary a bit. Besides - there are still so many ships I have yet to try!Big Smile

Uh no! Two things in this life I love besides my beautiful wife is cruising and road trips!

Tired of Caribbean cruises, but not of cruising to interesting places. In the past few years we have cruised in Europe, Australia/NZ, Asia and South America. So many new places to see that we will probably never get tired of cruising.

As much as we love cruising, and visiting the different ports, there are many land based places we also want to see, like the Grand Canyon, and Nashville. We have been thinking about taking a longer road trip for our vacation, in 2020.

Although there are spots in the US and Canada I would like to check out, I really do not like to fly. This leaves only driving, which I am starting to dislike due to the hours on the road, only to end up in a hotel for the night to prepare for another long drive the next day -- it takes a toll on me. Of course, If I can talk Mrs Rebel into getting me an RV, I may consider road trips again.

Otherwise, it looks like cruising, for me at least, is the only way to go.

Ive been to the Grand Canyon, along with 3,283,717 people, the same day...never again....and as for Nashville, back in the day, I lived in Hendersonville for a couple years...yes yes down the road from JC himself....all I can say is we went back...to see my old house, stayed downtown, take in some shows...3 days/2 nites cost more than a week in a balcony on a ship...never again to that too....as far as flying, cant stand it...Im old enough to remember when it was a fun part of a trip...not anymore, and certainly not since 9/11, and the airlines getting greedier...didn't even want to do it to go to Alaska.....and yes, two long days in a car is about it...and I have a luxury vehicle...must be old age or grumpiness....but, considering the alternative....off we go...

You have got to be kidding me. Tired of cruising. That is my retirement plan. Dude .. where is this one coming from.
