What was the first ship that you cruised on?

For me it was the Mardi Gras.  This was the first cruise ship of Carnival for the mass market.  We took our kids on it and it was back in the 80's.  If I find a photo, I'll post it.

My first cruise was June 24, 1996 on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Viking Serenade. It was just the 4 night cruise to see if I'd like it. It started an addiction :-) that I still have today. Now I think a 4 night cruise is just a quick get away and prefer a 14 night cruise.

My first was the Golden Princess.

Hawaii cruise out of Los Angeles.

Great cruise.

I found a photo of us on our very first cruise - The Carnival Mardi Gras.

Here's another photo that I found. Do any of you have old cruise photos to share????

My first cruise was on the Azure Seas to Mexico

Nice photo, GTVCRUISER. Thanks for posting.

Ours was on the Carnival Jubalee in 1995. I was hooked.

My first cruise was aboard the Norwegian Epic to celebrate Christmas 2013 with my family (parents, sisters, brother-in-law, nieces, nephew). I remember celebrating Christmas Eve in St. Maarten and Christmas Day in St. Thomas. It was a most surreal experience.

Our first cruise was aboard Carnival’s Jubilee back in 1996 and we were instantly addicted to cruising! As of today we've been on 64 cruises and have the next 4 planned!

The beautiful Carnival Jubilee! She changed our lives!
