If I lived close to a port I would probably find ways to take a cruise several times a year. I have always had a love of water and being on a big boat in the ocean just makes me feel exhilarated! My friend Karen and I have officially planned our next cruise, which will be in March out of Port Canaveral.
During my research I did find that it is larger than the ship we were on last year and larger than the one we were on during our first cruise with Holland America. We did think the Carnival Ecstasy to be a tad small but okay. We did like the Holland America ship and since this one is a bit larger we figure it will be fine. One of our reasons for choosing Royal Caribbean was that we have found they do not skimp on the booze! We never had a bad drink when we sailed with them last time.
Our stops this time are CocoCay which is one of the cruise lines private islands and Nassau. We weren't impressed with Nassau last time but then again it was a short period of time there and we were recovering from a massive party the night before. This time we have ALL day and I am researching beaches that will be nice for us to go spend the day and not cost an arm and a leg. We will also have one day of sailing.
I did tell Karen we need to find one cruise line and stick with it so we could start gathering points and get some of the good perks that cruisers get and maybe after this year will can decided if Royal Caribbean is the one for us!
Does anyone else love cruising?
