You Know Your Cruising When...

I know I'm cruising when I walk across the gangway and hear my card "bing" and I'm actually on the ship (drinking my complimentary glass of champagne if I'm on Celebrity). Then I'm cruising and everything magically disappears!


2013 can't get here soon enough - ALASKA! Can't wait!

I know I am officially on a cruise vacation once I start to walk up the Gangway. When I step foot on the ship for the first time and see the Atrium Lobby with all the light and colors. No matter how many cruises I have been on nothing ever beats that feeling. I LOVE CARNIVAL CRUISES

When I'm walking around from one location to another, and feel that unbelievably soothing sensation of the ship rocking under my feet, and hear a dull, relaxing hum of the ship's engines.


When I'm standing at the aft end of the open deck, and see the wakes trail behind the ship, and hear the waves splash against the hull. I just can't imagine a more relaxing sight than that.

These are all great! My first few cruises were out of NYC. The minute we sailed under the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge made me realize I was on a cruise! Many great memories of that!

Since we sail from Nola, I would have to say turning in the river and passing the St Louis Cathedral. The next big moment is the few minutes away from the mouth of the Mississippi when the muddy water fades and you start seeing waves and the water changes. You can tell you are in salt water by looking at it even at night.
