My favourite part is walking onto the ship because it means the best week cruising is really starting. The excitement of seeing the ship for the first time is awesome.

My favorite is walking on the ship the first day to explore my home for the next week or two Big Smile

Great question!  I think it’s the anticipation of someplace or something new.  Fortunately that happens with every ship, at every port, every meal, every show…

No wonder we love cruising!Love

Considering I gained 10 lbs this last cruise... might be the food....

And along similiar lines, room service on the balcony to watch the ship pull in or when we are already docked in port.

Watching the ship push off from the port. I remember the tug boat, and watching the thrusters in action is fasciinating.

Getting on the ship.

Leaving the home port.

Sailing in the open sea.

Entering and leaving port.

Totally relaxed atmosphere.

A lot of "me" time.

A lot of social time.


It's like your asking me to name my favorite child -- It's all good.Big Smile

Arriving at my hotel where I stay for a couple of days prior to the cruise and have the anticipation building up.

Yup.  Totally agree.

also, walking the ship early in the morning taking pictures without too many people getting in my shots ( or asking about my crazy stereo lens ).

I love it all but that one moment when you cross the gangway and step onto the ship is special. Your there ... huzzah!
