What was your most memorable experience on a cruise?

Do you have just one or two memories to share from a cruise that are very special?

For me, it was walking into the lobby of the Carnival Imagination with my husband. He had been so reluctant for years about cruising because we don't drink alcohol, gamble or party hard and he thought all ships were full of young party animals. The look on his face that morning in the lobby of the ship was just as fully of anticipation and joy as mine. He was quickly hooked on cruising too.

My other very memorable time was witnessing a cruise guest being taken aboard a medical chopper and flown back to Miami from the Liberty. The crew on the ship and on the helicopter were amazing! Everyone around us cheered and applauded as the chopper flew away.

For me, it was the moment I fell in love with cruising: my first look up into the atrium of the Carnival Ecstasy.

Getting married on the Carnival Splendor in 2014!

Walking up the gangway on my first cruise.

Definitely memorable! We've seen a couple of weddings onboard and they were so beautiful.

Just like being a kid seeing something new for the very first time.

LOL well I would like to say when a young lady lost her top in the pool, but then my wife would jab me in the arm and tell me I should not have been looking. Definitely, my very first cruise, when I walked into the atrium for the first time. Having never been on a cruise ship prior, everything was new and had that wow factor. Although it still does to some degree, you never forget your first!

On every cruise, it has always been the first look into the Atrium -- it is always memorable.

I'm sure you looked away as soon as it happened, right?Wink The young lady would likely have that moment as her most memorable too.

Recapturing my serenity is memorable on every cruise but I will never forget this recent "memory". An older gentleman with fairly long hair decided to have his hair braided - beads and all when he was in port without his wife. I ran into them later and jokingly asked if his wife approved of the braids. She said, now we are even for the henna tattoo I got the day before. This couple were in their late 70s - had never cruised - and were having the time of their life! It made me so happy to see this couple enjoying their cruise experience to the fullest!

What a great story! Happy
