How many Cruises would a Cruiser Cruise if a Cruiser could Cruise Cruises?

As many as we can ... Had a great day yesterday with a friend I met on a cruise a year ago... She was in town for Nascar and sprained her ankle, so while her group went back to Nascar Sunday, I collected her from her hotel and kept her iced and elevated poolside with me.  My cabana boy (Hubby) grilled lunch and served cocktails! Such a guy ... We talked cruises for hours and laughed that cruisers are a special breed ...

When we met on the Princess in Dec 2015, she'd commented that she had always wanted to go to Las Vegas World Market so I invited her and her husband out last January. Then she joined me on a "girls day out" cruise in March.  In April, my son was flying through LA for a couple days, and even though she was on a cruise to Sweden, she taped a key outside her beautiful home In Yorba Linda, California and let my son stay at her house while in town.

So funny how cruising strangers can become great friends and enjoy that common bond of cruising ...

How wonderful for all of you.

It's nice when your cruising friends become your "real world" friends. It is also nice when your "real world" friends become your cruising buddies. We have a few friends that are as excited about cruising and Renaissance festivals as we are...." I love it when a plan comes together"!

I think I would cruise more if it wasn't such a hassle to get to the ports.

That makes two of us ... but I sure watch for cheap air fare to either coast ....

I often do, but now we're in stateside mode. We are talking about a trip to England with friends, since all the historical sites will take on a new meaning, now.

I've got my cap set for a couple of quicky Vancouver/Seattle and Seattle/Vancouver runs. Just a day or two each, inside cabin if I can get 'em - maybe take a train on either end. What's not to love? I love Vancouver, I love Seattle, I love cruising, and I haven't been on a real train for twenty years.

I'd like to cruise twice a year. That's good for me. If you do it to much it gets old hat and takes away the excitement of it in my opinion.

In my fantasy world I'd have plenty of money and time and take one short cruise a month. The other weeks take trips to various states and countries. I'd rarely be home.

We cruise as often as we can, depending on what's going on in life. Sometimes twice a year other times we gone out 10 times. I always ready to go again. I feel better just having one booked!

What a wonderful friendship you've developed!

If it were up to me, I'd cruise every 2-3 months Happy. DH and I are still working, so our biggest issue is coordinating the vacay days around work schedule.

It's really funny how people on a cruise do not seem like "strangers" ... I would rarely if ever exchange information out of the blue...My "regular" friends don't really enjoy cruising but some of them haven't tried it in years ... Keep telling them what they're missing ...
