    They say Alaskan cruises are well worth it. I've never been, but friends of mine have. In Europe you have the Mediterranean cruises and apparently some good river cruises in the Nordic region. Then there's the Caribbean cruises which I've always taken. Great relaxation value and plenty of water sports and new things to see and experience. (Plus some mean local drinks as well). Of course, you have to put up with the occasional "let-it-all-hang-out" bikinis by the poolside..... but for those it's always a good idea to have a good pair of wraparound sunglasses.
    Yes a friend has seen the Aurora (northern lights) and they said it was beautiful.

    Fuck me, you change your mind like the wind! You are so easily led.
    I’m going on a med cruise next year , and to be honest I’m fucking dreading it.
    Stuck on a boat that no matter how hard it tries, can never be luxurious, and then when you stop at the city ports , you have about 6 or 7 hours in a city , so you run round like a blue assed fly to fucking see the sites.
    Fucking dreadful.

    Then you run deep sea divers like x and titofan over in your giant boat. Inconsiderate.

    Is it the MSC line? I've heard they're a bit stark as compared to some of the other cruise line ships. Royal Caribbean ships are pretty nice, but still..... you enjoy the ship and what it has to offer. I don't like the mega ships, as I find 5,000 people is a ghastly number of people to be bumping into at the buffet line or just walking down the concourse. Two to three thousand is ok. Also the length of the cruise. If I'm gonna go through the trouble of packing to go on a ship, I'm gonna stay at least 7 nights. Short cruises of 3-4 nights don't do it for me. Some people are the other way around. If I disembark, I try to keep it real. No 5-hour tours halfway across the country to get back in the nick of time. I prefer some shopping close to port..... or an activity I really want to do, like ATV off-roading, zip-lining, or maybe some wreck diving.

    Well X has sealed the deal and put to bed any thought of them for me . That's a good thing. I just don't see the appeal with being essentially stranded and cattled along with thousands of strangers. Seems like at least once a month we have stories of cruise ship passengers having horror stories of sewage, illness or outbreaks of wide spread sharting. Royal Caribbean had to refund earlier this month after some Indian company turn it into a 24-7 drunken burlesque show. They have loud fat and obnoxious written all over them. At the most give me a small fishing charter with a handful of people and a few coolers, that'll do just fine.

    Just think of all the points you're about to accumulate.

    If you do get to liking it..... keep it under wraps. That way your mate will think you're making a huge sacrifice for her.

    Been seeing a lot of stories on the ongoing quarantines aboard cruise ships because of the coronavirus. Into weeks now with passengers being confined to their rooms. Honestly I can't think of much more maddening than being locked down on what is already a glorified high priced floating toilet . Have to say I'd be tempted to jump. It would drive one crazy.

    Ya and even without coronavirus they tend to be breeding grounds for various bacteria. I’ve been on destroyers and a few other military vessels but never a pleasure cruise. The only thing that really interests me is what master and tits talked about the Alaska cruise. My parents went on one and the pics were stunning. Coming up on those glaciers what a marvelous sight. The ocean is always soothing. One of me and my wife’s friends own a sail boat you can just cruise for hours. Unfortunately they are getting a divorce so there goes that. I hate when people do this shit and don’t think of me

    Butlins at sea ? I think you need to review who you cruise with.
    Which line did you choose Mark ?

    For the record I have been on lots of cruises and love them.
    18 months late but it was carnival cruise. Caribbean

    Carnival cruise line , that explains why it was butlins.
    Try Celebrity or Silver seas.

    If I went again I'd do a smaller ship.

    Some european river cruises look good - maybe one day.

    And Norway looks a must

    I can't think of anything worse. It is bad enough being stuck in a Hotel, 5 star, all inclusive or budget. Not for me, can't wait to get home to be honest. Going to air B n B next time I think although the Mrs wants to do a train and B n B thing in Scotland for our honeymoon.
