If you could go back in time, what would you do on your previous cruises ?

I would have started buying the mini ships you see in the gift shops.

I would have kept better track of my photos and negatives.

And taken better pictures, subject-wise.

Great ideas! I wish that I had gotten the ship ornaments while on the ships. I could probably find them on EBay, that just is not the same thing. I would take less excursions, sit back and relax more. I try to relax on the ship, but my mind goes into the "OMG, I have to do stuff, I will not be coming back" mode. We are only taking one excursion on our upcoming cruise and if we like that one, will take it again in November to El Cid in Cozumel.

Slow things down and enjoyed the moment a lot more with my wife, instead of the wow factor and wanting to see and do everything.

Hmmmmm, I can't think of anything I wish I had done.

Skip the 4 day cruises and have them all 7 (or longer). Like the others, enjoy each day and not try to it all, knowing I'd be back. Then I didn't know I'd be back.

More spa time.....

I would have saved my Sign & sail Cards. I only have recent ones. I do collect the mini ship models and have a fleet of them now. I wish that all ships would sell them.

Drink more wine instead of abstaining. On this last cruise I drank more wine and tried different ones. It was fun and I didn't drink too much either.

Explore the ships more. Since our cruises, I've found articles about places on the ship I didn't know about. 2nd. Take one port day and stay on the ship. 3rd take pics of the food..Lol. everyone says did you get a pic..We generally are to busy eating!...Best thing I've ever done is cut off our phones! Totally disconnect from reality

Amen to that!!! One of the best parts of the cruise is having the phones in air mode for several days.

The 7 day are great, but we've sure enjoyed out 2 previous 4 day cruises because we combined it with a land vacation in Florida too. Next March we are taking a 6 day plus 4 day with 2 land days between cruises and a couple of land days before the first cruise.
