    Have you ever been on a cruise ship?

    Yes, I went from Florida Keys, Cozumel Mexico, Cayman Islands and to Jamaica and back to Miami, Florida

    It was my 1st time on a cruise ship and had a blast. I enjoyed stopping at the ports and did snorkling, shopping, took a canoe over to a private island and lots of site seeing at the ports.

    Yes we have done several. They are our vacations of choice. Last Feb we went to Hawaii and cruised to 4 of the islands, it was a trip of a lifetime. Our other cruises have all been Carribean ones. What line did you go on???

    Yes. We've taken 3 cruises with our DDs,their hubs & 3 teen Grkids.Wonderful time had by all.Both were Caribbean cruises to diff locations, St Martin,Cayman Is,Virgin Is etc.

    DH & I plan to go again.One DD will cruise in Jan, the other is going on Spring break..Once you go on a cruise, you're spoiled for other types of vacations....at least I am :-)

    Nice ppl, no driving, good food at all hrs & lots of diff entertainment.They have spas,gambling,shopping,kids areas, pools,just name it.

    I told my DH I wanted us to go on a cruise for our 40th anniversary. He immediately replied that after being on that navy ship, no more boats! He was AirForce assigned to a Navy ship tracking Russian missle shots for a couple of years back in the 80's.

    Guess my girlfriend and I will just have to leave our hubby's at home and go together. Hers won't go either!

    On our first cruise we renewed our wedding vows with the captain of the ship doing the honors. That was for our 35th. Took a second cruise with friends 2 years later.Even more fun than the first. Went to various islands in the Caribbean. We are hoping for an Alaskan cruise this spring. We plan to do the land adventure first and then the cruise. That is planned with 2 other couples.

    I went in my 25th anniversary, I loved it...the hubby said it was ok...he is not into crowds, crowded dinning, and the thought of being in the middle of the ocean. Me...I loved it...just wish we did not go to bed at 8pm every night...I would have loved to go with a bunch of girlfriends. Next time we are flying to an island so he can have the remote feeling.

    Did a Carribean Cruise to St. Thomas, St. Croix and San Juan in 1999. And when I retired in 2008 my retirement trip was cruise up to Skagway and back to Vancouver... too COLD! Will be doing warm water cruises from now on!

    Yes, we went to Alaska and did the inside passage trip. It was wonderful, both the cruise and Alaska. Would love to do it again, except now I refuse to fly, and it is too far to drive!

    I have cruised twice. We did a one week Alaska Cruise and a 4-day Mexico, Catalina, San Diego Cruise. I think we are planning a cruise next year with DH's brother and sister and spouses. Probably only a Mexico one cause we don't want to have to fly anywhere.

    I've never been on a cruise, but I've seen some advertised for quilters. That would be fun.

    Nope! Not sure that even if I could afford it that it would be my vacation of choice...I'd rather get to where I'm going and have fun there I think! :)

    I've been on several cruises and have another one booked this spring to the S.Caribbean islands and have back-to-back cruises planned for 2012, one the Western and the other Eastern Caribbeans. Some of these ports we have been to before, but it's fun to go back again and do different sightseeing. My DH & I plan a cruise EVERY year!!

    I have been on three cruises. It has been 3 years since the last one but I enjoyed everyone of them. Carnival cruise ships help make you feel special. Very pampered. Food was excellent. Recommend ceases for any one who wants to relax. Of course I really enjoy the ocean. So that helps

    Been on three cruises. The Alaska cruise was my favorite. Don't have a desire to go on another cruise.

    We went on a quilting cruise. The inside passage to Alaska and back to Vancouver. I would probably go again. We had our machines all set up so we could look out and see the view. We could sew anytime we wanted and husbands could come by anytime. It was very relaxed and we both loved it. By the way, it was a few years ago and I haven't finished the project yet.

    Yes. DH and I went with two other couples. We boarded the Royal Carribean in Galveston, TX. I don't remember the order of the ports of call but: We went to a pineapple/coffee plantation in Jamica (a super fun bus ride), the Myan Ruins in Tulum, Mexico (another l hour boat ride to location from Cozamel) and a tour of the main Cayman island, including a rum factory and power shopping in the Columbian Emerald jewelry stores. The dining was fantastic! It was a trip I will never forget!

    Nope. I will never get on a crew ship. I have heard of too many missing people on some of them and also some of the people's nightmares about a hurricane close to them when they were out there. And also I get sea sick.
    I another thing, I can't afford to go on my very small social security check.
