Favorite cruise

Just curious as to what everyone's favorite cruise was so far (because let's face it, there's probably plenty more cruises to come!).  Mine was a family vacation for my parent's 20th wedding anniversary.  They decided to take the kids (both teens at the time) on a cruise to Europe!  We flew to London and then to Rome 3 days before catching "Grandeur Of The Seas" on a cruise from Rome to Greece and Turkey.  We then went back to Rome, flew back to London and spent 3 days in London before heading home.

 

Pictures are welcome as well if you want to share! Happy

Ours was my Parents 50th wedding anniversary. It was a 10 day cruise to Acapulco on Celebrity. My kids we're 21, 17 and 12. It was a special cruise as it was our last vacation together before my father passed away. I have other favorite cruises but that is one my best memories.

Mine was probably this last cruise I took! It was on Viking Sky in Norway and Scotland. Such an amazing ship and gorgeous ports. My review and photos are in my profile if anyone's interested. I also really loved my Adriatic/Med cruise on Norwegian Star last year. Love

My family and I cruised RC Adventure of the Seas last summer.  Southern Caribbean from Puerto Rico.  We had an amazing time.  The ports were wonderful and loved the ship. Fantastic time.

Can't really say one was better than any of the others. All of them were wonderful and special and each had their own special points. 

This a very difficult thing to answer because some have very special components; like when my parents sailed with us.  My Dad was like a kid in a candy store, comparing this to WWII ships he sailed as a Merchant Marine.  He had a wonderful time and it was all that much more fun for me because he was there.  But If I had to pick a cruise that I would recommend to someone that could only sail once, it would be the Panama Canal Transit.  We had a wonderful naturalist giving information before and during the transit.  Of course another favorite was the first cruise (which, at the time, I thought would be the only). I won the cruise we had such a good time we are headed to #36 in less than 2 weeks. There are a few others that I could add, but these would be my top three as of this moment in time.

Any and all cruises.

Agree with those who simply said they'd enjoy any cruise, for all practical purposes.  I like the whole experience...and the more you do it, its easier to enjoy, because you know the ropes so to speak...I guess the downside is you KNOW when things aren't right or up to par...newbies probably wont notice some of the things vets might...I really enjoy the posts from people who post online, epic analysis,  who go on minute by minute accounts of all the things they didn't like...and then close by admitting its their first cruise, and theyd do it again....

Every cruise is special in it's own way. Itinerary, people we are with or something special happens. I am just of the Carnival Splendor, we were celebrating our friends retirements. What a great time!

My favorite cruise was my first one.  I was in the Navy floating on a destroyer for four years in the Gulf of Tonkin, living in cramped quarters, eating out of metal trays, etc.  I swore when I get out of the Navy I would not go on another ship again.  My wife talked me to go on a cruise for 5 days out of Galveston on the Carnival Conquest.  I was hooked from the first moment I stepped on the ship.  It was a floating palace. They treated you like a king.  So my first cruise was my favorite one.  Been on many since then.

 

Agree completely re the remembrance of our first cruise..we were hooked too....even under difficult personal circumstances that cast a shadow over it.  (she was diagnosed just prior, and another journey began)...turned out better than ok, and we booked a do over...same ship, same cabin....as for the other...if I had 1/2 a brain back then, I woukdve joined the Navy instead of enlisting in the Army...I would gladly have traded sleeping on the ground or under vehicles, eating out of cans (when I could get it), and being chased by and chasing injuns...we used to call it 3 hots and a cot...hmmm...thanks for your service anyway...and as a fellow Nam vet...welcome home...
