On the ship in port?

Just a thought. Has anyone ever taken a cruise and stayed on the ship at every port?

Not me. But I have neighbors who cruise so often that this is what they do now. As for me, I like to get off just to walk around on land for a bit. But I have been to Nassau so often that now I do just stay on the ship for this one port. I imagine that if one has mobility problems staying on the ship is the better option. Everyone should decide for him/herself how to spend their cruise.

No I haven't. Like glomarrone I will stay onboard for Nassau. I have gotten off the ship and returned within 30 minutes.

Poor Nassau. Nobody likes her anymore. Nervous

When I was originally hurt and in a knee immobilizer, and on crutches yeah. It was only a cruise to Nassau so I didn't care. It was just a short getaway. Never got off the ship at all.

I may skip a port or two if I have been to it a lot or if a port I do not like like Nassau, but I tend to get off in each port even if just to g for a walk. I like being on the ship on port days, nice and quiet and no lines for lunch, mini golf and able to get a good lounge by the pool or on the serenity deck.

Nassau is like that kid in school that nobody notices or pays attention to, or maybe like that bad kid that is sent to detention cause no body likes him. Big Smile

I thought that Nassau is like the kid in grade school that nobody really likes but all go to his b-day party because of great food and entertainment at the party (like going on a Nassau cruise to be on a cruise and not for the port) I only went to Nassau because that cruise had Journey preforming on the ship, it just happened to port there.

The only reason I get off the ship in Ensenada is for the Wine tasting at Santo Thomas and to bring home a few bottles of wine and port.

We always try to go ashore for a little while at least, even if it’s a port we’ve been to many times already. We usually end up finding something new that we hadn’t seen or done before!

We cruise to see the ports so no, we have never stayed on the ship while its in a port.

I feel that we might get like that one day, we have talked about whether we cruise for the ports or for the cruise itself, for me its the cruise itself, when the boys were younger and kyle was not doing as well as he is now behavior wise. I would go to the beach with them and always get an oceanfront room, so if he threw a meltdown (nonverbal with autistic characteristics) and I had to get him away from everything. I could still sit on the balcony and watch the ocean. I have not gotten a balcony room yet, feel that one is coming, but he is so much better now. He loves cruising so that is a BIG help, along with the lessened meltdowns. Depending on how our mobility gets later on, we might stay on board and relax (and look for pier runners too!)
