Best Thing That Happened on a Cruise ...

Got engaged divorced ..met that special someone.  what was the best thing that ever happened to you on a cruise?

For me, it was restoring my serenity and peace of mind.  My mother had been murdered, I'd spent five long years in a courtroom, and I had become a shell of the person I used to be. I suffered from PTSD, depression, you name it.  Cruising restored me. I could finally exhale and begin to enjoy life again.  There is something about the ocean that has that impact on you and you can't help but feel that all is right with the world.  I can close my eyes - hear, see & smell the ocean and go to my "happy place". I learned to stop letting people, places & things rob me of the joy I want to feel in my heart.

My husband proposed to me on my first cruise( his second)...We were on the main deck of the Carnival Glory by ourselves watching the sunset. He later told me that he started to do it in front of everyone but he knows how embarrassed I get when all eyes are on me.

Learned to relax.

I cannot say that there has ever been a huge momentous moment on a cruise for me. I can say however that I can fondly remember pretty well every moment of all my cruises and it seems like only yesterday even the one from 10 years ago. So for me the best thing would be all the wonderful memories i have acquired.

I cannot say on a 'G' rated forum. Nervous

As long as it wasn't the hot tub ....

AHAHAH... Nope. My cabin.....Big Smile

For me being on the sea is the best therapy for anything that is bothering me. I took a long land ans cruise vacation after my dad passed away. I had a dream on that cruise that I was walking on the ship and saw dad sitting in one of the big high back wing chairs, he was looking out the window at the sea he looked over at me smiled and then went back to looking at the sea. That dream let me know he was happy and all was well. My parents had gotten me into cruising and that is where they were the happiest.

This was a hard one... I am going with watching my Dad when my parents sailed with us. Dad was a Merchant Marine in WWII, but never talked about his time in the service. We might be able to drag out a comment from him that he liked being on a ship, but nothing more. When he got on the ship with us, his eyes lit up and he wanted to show us things that were the same and tell us about things that were different. I learned a lot about the ship on that 4 day cruise. He was so excited about the pilot boat and started telling stories about "pilots" that were stuck on some of his ships. The best part was he continued telling stories ever after we returned home, so my siblings got the benefit of his excitement. Love

Balcony club? lol

Ahhhhh the ships have camera's looking down the side of the ships, balcony is not to private.
