I just got back from my first cruise ever and it was probably the best experience of my life!! Anyone have other opinions? If you've never been on a cruise then you should really look into it because it was the most amazing experience of my life!

Wow, it sounds like you had a great time! I have actually never been on a cruise before. I always thought it would be fun to go on one when I was younger but I didn't have the chance then. Now that I'm older, I guess I eventually lost interest in going on one. I guess maybe I should look into it again though since you say it was so great! Maybe I will go on a cruise with my husband for an anniversary or something someday.

That would be the best trip for an anniversary. I'm only 17, and although i enjoyed the cruise so much, i was restricted to a lot and wasn't aloud to do a lot of the stuff that was available for everyone else to do. My parents are going on a cruise for their anniversary soon, so it is perfect for an anniversary. And the prices are very low comparing all of the stuff that you get in the end.

My family and I went on a cruise a few years ago. It was an island-hopping type of cruise where we went from one beach to another. Although it was a 5-star cruise, we didn't get to spend a lot of time on the islands as we would've wanted. The cruise itself was great though. The pool was nice and clean, the gym had enough equipment, and the entertainment aboard was more than I could ask for. The best part was the buffet though. We had delicious meals all the time and an eat-all-you can snack area, which is why I gained a lot of weight during the trip. Anyway, spending time aboard the ship was great, but I'd rather spend more time offshore than one the boat.

I went on one two years ago and it was quite interesting. I went to the Bahamas and the food on that cruise was something. I tried some sushi and lounged on the deck and just had an overall good time. just being out on the water and all is soothing and therapuetic to one's soul if you ask me.

I really wish we could take a cruise! They sound like so much fun and I would love to stop at all of those different places that they go to. But, I get so sea sick! I get motion sickness so easy. I would probably be miserable the whole time and have no fun at all and what a waste of money! There is nothing worse being stuck on a boat that is making you sick with no way out. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself though!

I've never been on a cruise but I'm thinking of going on one for my honeymoon. It's funny because I'm thinking of just a simple, cheap cruise and he keeps looking at these ridiculously expensive 12-day Mediteranian cruises. I don't care about the destination. I just want to live on a boat for a little while.
