  1. I was two floors above theater on my last cruise. Could sing word for word with them. That was around 11 pm I believe
  2. I would love a cruise to no where. 1. I love to be on the water. 2 I don't have to cook, clean, do laundry 3. Entertainment if I want to do something. 4. It isn't here.
  3. That is my thought too. We have cruised once a year since 2011. With the flight, hotels etc it does get more expensive. I too feel I have to live my life while I can. My mom always talked about going to Alaska. After I started cruising I offered to take them. But by this time my dad had alzheimer's and she didn't want to go. My in-laws often criticize my "traveling all the time" My FIL told me I needed to quit vacationing and save my money for retirement. Wastes more money in a month then I spend on my yearly vacay. Then complained to me that he has never gotten to use the giant RV he bought in 2003 because he just didn't have time. Well his is dieing now and has still never used that RV. But I've seen some awesome things.
  4. I'd go, I just like cruising. I don't think there is a ship or company I "would never" go on again. I have a line I never recommend to people and if I have a choice I won't go on them but if it's the only game in town, sure.
  5. I would never recommend Carnival to anyone. Other then that maybe Princess.
  6. Oh what I wouldn't do to fly to a cruise right now. I used to not enjoy flying but now, boy, I would love to be on a plane. In my mind if I lived by a port. Or even within say 8 hours (driving distance for me well maybe up to 15 hours) to a port I would cruise a lot more then once a year. How often do you all cruise? Flying makes it so much more expensive.
  7. Op I’ve been down too. I just went in January so I shouldn’t. But I didn’t have one planned so I have nothing to look forward to. I udd sad ually spend my time on the boards reading reviews but I can’t do that wither. Cheers
  8. On my 8 cruises I've only been in a pool once but if I wanted to go I would. No I wouldn't wear a mask.
  9. I would like to try a river cruise also. Wish they weren't so expensive.
  10. Just wondering what is the one place / country / island you would want to visit? Mine was Russia because I used to have a pen pal from there. I remember when the first McDonalds opened there (not sure if it was the country or city he lived in) In 2016 some of my kids and I went, so excited to see what I had heard about. (this is not a covid 19 thread, I do not care if the country is accepting travelers. This is just a fun thread)
  11. Some people are confident enough to rock a speedo, some people aren't. I wish I had that confidence. I wish I felt that good in my clothes.
  12. Just remembered this one. On our Panama canal cruise we missed a port due to to rough of seas. A lady in the buffet area started yelling and crying and also started beating the table saying that's why she came on this cruise. I thought maybe she should have just flown there if it was that important.
  13. On my last cruise we were having a drink right after we got on. Sitting in the atrium watching the people. We noticed a grandma in a wheel chair with a couple teenage boys pushing her and one or two ladies. We saw them everywhere, usually with the boys pushing Grandma. My daughter mentioned to one of the ladies that we enjoyed watching the boy interact with grandma and the lady, grandmas daughter said that Grandma and Grandpa were suppose to go on a cruise and Grandpa died. Grandma decided to still go (if I am remembering right it's been a year and 1/2) so the family came along.
  14. I was on a princess cruise and there was a lady who turned out to be 60 years old. I thought she was around 40. She obviously loved music and just danced by herself. Always with her eyes closed. Just feelin the music. A couple of other women were laughing at her and trying to video her so my daughter and I "danced" into their shot. Then later they were all nicey nicey to her. But anyway, I wish I was her and could "dance like no one was watching"
  15. Awesome story. How fun to get the same room
  16. I haven't tried Celebrity but I want to. I haven't checkout out videos of the Edge either but I guess I'm going to have to. I have only went on Carnival twice. The first time we loved it and in January on the Magic we just didn't enjoy it. I think it is just not our style. Yes the Magic had tons of rust but I'm not sure if I noticed it because people had mentioned it here on CC or if I would have noticed it otherwise. I would really like to go on Celebrity and congrats it sounds like you got a great deal!
  17. I was thinking the other day. I used to be up really late and watch the ships come into Port Everglades. I always thought that Carnival Freedom was the most beautiful ship when it came in and want to sail on her. I never have, but some day I will. Does anyone else have a ship that they want to sail on but just never have? Why do you want to sail on her?
