What's your favorite cruise memory/thing you like to do!

Hello.. thought it would be fun to share what you really like about cruising., for me one of my favorite things is sitting out on my balcony listening to the waves hit the ship and smelling the sea air, it's very calming.

So funny this is the first post on the forum! I was signing on to ask the same thing!!!! Great minds! Happy

My favorite thing is soo random! It's the melt your skin off hot water in the showers! At home my grandmother and daughter live with me, so our water heater is turned down just a bit to prevent unintentional burns. I can never wait to get on that ship and take a shower so hot it leaves my skin red! Then I sit on my balcony and listen to the waves and the sounds drifting from the Lido deck. Happy

My favorite moment is as we set sail from the Home Port. The vacation is started, the wind blowing my hair, we toast with a "glass of champagne" and the mundane world is left behind.Love

nothing wrong with a hot shower to take the stress away!

cheers to that :)

The best part, is being to actually relax.

We're campers and hunters. so vacations are usually some sort of work - setting up, cooking, cleaning, walking the woods and fields, dragging the trailer, and maintaining the truck/trailer - and theres always something I MUST do.

Also, Between my Job, and the Volunteer Fire Department, I'm on call 24/7, except when on a cruise...No Laptop, Phone, portable Radio, or kevlar vest, no cooking, cleaning, laundry, schedule...nothing to do but Eat, Drink, and enjoy the sights and sounds...truly the ONLY time I get to relax...

Also, hailing from a climate where we have 8 months of snow, and 4 months of bad sledding, the Caribbean weather doesn't hurt one bit...

My hubby and I are campers also.. and we live in New England.. so I look forward to the warm Caribbean weather.

For me it is the whole experience and it starts when I park the car and then have nothing to do and no where I have to be once I board. Totally unfettered and ready to be pampered and served.

For me there are a few stand outs.

1. Walking on to a ship and seeing it for the first time thinking "this is home for the next week" and being handed a glass of Champagne

2. Walking on the deck watching sunset

3. How good I sleep with the balcony door left open a bit so I can hear the waves on the ship as I sleep.

4. Going to the dining room for the first dinner to meet my table mates and dining staff.

5 I enjoy how relaxed and friendly everybody is when in vacation mode.

6. Trying new foods that I would not try at home. On one cruise everybody wanted to taste the Duck but nobody wanted it as there full dinner so we ordered 1 plate of it for everybody to get a taste of it. I would never order Snails at home to try them, but on a ship I tried them, same with the Alligator.

Loving all the answers so far!, .. soon I hope we can all cruise again.. and enjoy the things we love! Love

Relax. Chill. Sip. Eat. Repeat.
