What ships do you want to sail the MOST someday?

We've all been talking a lot about what cruises we want to take when this is all over, where we want to go, etc. but I want to focus on the ships themselves on this post. Itineraries aside, what ships do you REALLY want to sail someday? And why? Here's my list:

I want to either sail Symphony of the Seas again (a 2-night cruise was too short the first time) or another Oasis class ship on a full cruise, to really experience what a real voyage with paying passengers on one of these massive ships is like. Plus I think they're designed extremely well and it would just be so much fun - especially if there were several sea days.

Carnival's Mardi Gras sounds like it's going to be something very different for them, and I like how they're thinking of the ship in zones kind of like Royal's Oasis class neighborhoods. And many of the activities/venues they've announced for this ship sound really fun so I really, REALLY want to sail it.

I was very skeptical of Celebrity Edge when it first debuted, but I've warmed up to the idea and want to sail either this ship or Apex. I think of these ships in particular especially as like the older, more modern cousin to Royal's newer vessels and I love those, so I'm sure I'd love these. PLUS I've never actually sailed Celebrity yet so it would be a fun intro to my own experience with the brand.

Any Disney ship, but preferably Dream or the new Wish when it debuts. Just because I adore Disney and haven't sailed them yet, either.

Viking's upcoming expedition line and their upcoming Mississippi River ship. Because I adore Viking and don't think there's any way I wouldn't enjoy these new ventures from them.

Something I do NOT care to sail soon is Virgin. I had high hopes and I love modern design more than nearly everyone I know, but based on photos and reviews I've heard, this ship isn't it. If they modify some things for their next vessels though, I'll be very curious.

I can't wait to hear everyone else's answers!

I can't wait to get back onboard Seabourn Encore or Ovation...loved everything about the experience and we are now sold on the smaller more luxury ships instead of suites on the mass-market brands. I am dying to try their new expedition ship Venture!

I would love to get back onboard Windstar - it's been far too long since I was on the Wind Surf and would love to do the So Pacific (Tahiti/Fiji) on one of their ships.

Crystal River Cruise on Crystal Ravel on the Danube! This is the top of our bucket list and hoping to do this later in 2020 or 2021.

Crystal Serenity - I would love to get back on this ship since it's the refurbishment and see the changes; don't much care where it's going so long as we are on it!!

Scenic Eclipse - the small intimate ship with a submarine and helicopter looks like it would make for a trip of a lifetime.

Ritz-Carlton Yacht - looking forward to seeing what this new brand is all about and experience their new ships but don't know a lot about them as yet, but excited to learn more! Too many great ships out there and not enough time (or money) to do them all!!


Great question! The only ships I have been on have been Norwegian Joy and Norwegian Encore. I'm looking forward to experiencing other cruise lines

Any ship any time with the right bang for the buck.

I agree completely! I am looking forward to our first riverboat cruise on the American Song.

More ... need more cruises ...

I would like to sail on the Norwegian Bliss just to see what she is like. Would love to try a Viking cruise or two as well and possibly Celebrity.

YES you NEED to try Viking! I'm so obsessed with them lol

I'd like to go on the new Celebrity Edge or Apex. Celebrity is my favorite cruise line so I want to try the new ships. My current favorite ship is the Celebrity Equinox after 2 cruises on her.

I'd also like to do a European River Cruise. To do that I was thinking of taking a Transatlantic cruise to Europe, then a week in Venice, then the River Cruise, then another week in Europe before flying home. The advantage of a Transatlantic cruise is no Jet Lag when you get to Europe, I can't sleep on a plane, so my first day in Europe is lost sleeping. The time Changes an hour a day on the cruise so I do not notice it, when we get there I'm already on there time.

I would love to cruise the Queen Mary 2. I just really want to cruise on this ship. I am hopeful that for my 60th. birthday (2022) I'll be on this ship.

I had to cancel two Carnival cruises so will be booking new ones soon. I so want to get a balcony on the new Mardi Gras, but I also love the mid-size ships in the Carnival fleet. We will probably do a couple back in the Caribbean when cruising opens up, then Alaska and a Transatlantic with time in Europe next year. We have cruised twice a year since retirement, so we are really ready for our time on the high seas!
