How Often Do You Cruise?

Some take one cruise in a lifetime.  Others cruise once a year, every other year or every third year.  Still others cruise more often.  How often, in general, do you cruise?

We started to cruise every odd year since 2009. We had a cruise slated for this year 2015 as the fourth in the series but the economy in our area has taken a bit of a hit lately, so we are postponing until maybe mid 2016. We want to repeat the Panama experience of 2011 when the new locks are operating or maybe revisit Bermuda. We shall see what the new year brings.

For years, my Wife always fancied a Caribbean holiday and I fancied a cruise. So, three years ago we took a combined all inclusive Virgin holiday to Jamaica for a week combined with a NCL cruise from Ocho Rios. Well, the holiday was excellent, even though my wife still prefers a land based holiday. This year we took our second cruise to the Greek Islands after I had persuaded her to try a cruise again. So far so good, so whilst the proverbial iron is still hot, we have booked a Western Mediterranean break on NCL Epic next September Cruising has come a bit late in our lives, so we will have to see how many more we can squeeze in dependant on finance and health.

I haven't cruised since April 2011, but I am booked for Bermuda in November 2016. We started cruising in 2008 and cruised once a year and then just took state side vacations to explore our beautiful Country USA that we live in. But now I am ready to get back on a SHIP!

My wife and I do 2 vacations a year. One with the kids and do all the touristy stuff and theme parks and all that jazz and the other one is just the 2 of us and we cruise! We used to do land vacays but ever since 2013 we got hooked on cruising and find it the best! Cruise #3 coming up this Jan! Cannot wait!

As often as I can. Happy

usually once, sometimes twice a year. Roughly every 9-10 months.

It has varied. In the past, we took 1-2 cruises per year. This year, we took 7. Next year, we have 4 on the books. I expect we will continue to take 3-4 per year, depending on cruise length going forward.

This is our 25th year of sailing. We averaged 22 days a year. Except, a few times we went for a number of years without cruising when we used other forms of travel than ships. Counting our next cruise in January we have sailed more in a little over a year than ever before, six cruises for 121 days. Our longest single voyage was in 2008 for almost three straight months. I'm not certain why over the last couple of years we have accelerated our cruising, perhaps because we are getting long in the tooth and expect our future cruises to be limited. But then, I have friends who still enjoy cruising and do it from wheel chairs. So who knows.

Sorry to hear that you had to postpone your cruise in 2015. Hope that you are able to reschedule it. Bermuda or the Panama Canal sound wonderful.

I can relate. It took me several years of land based vacations to convince my wife to try a cruise. She was always worried uo crowds, sea sickness. Crowds as opposed to Florida beaches and theme parks? We are poised to take our third in three years.

We usually cruise every other year.
