This must be my day to be a total downer, but there is very little I liked about cruising. I think it depends on who you go with. I am not a big eater, so having all the food you want does not impress me. I did not like the huge lines waiting to get on the ship. It's not at all like the old movies show you. I felt like we were all cattle being herded onboard.

The people I went with wanted to party and drink all night long, eat as much as they could stuff in their faces, lie around the pool not moving, etc. I need more activity than that. Plus you never even know you're on the ocean at all unless you make a special effort to get up on deck, and the wind velocity is incredible unless you're in a protected area.

I did have one friend who worked out and was happy to have someone to work out with. Later on, she told me she went to singles dance and it sounded absolutely debauched. Not my style either.

I would tell those of you who have husbands who say they get seasick or whatever that you definitely do not know you're on the ocean or even moving most of the time. I don't think people have much of a problem with seasickness. There were a couple of times when I was lying down on my bed that I sensed movement, but it was very little. Just a gentle rocking for a short time.

I spent WAY more money than I ever dreamed I would spend in one place at one time in my life. My friends told me I had to buy gowns to wear to go to dinner, but that's just because there are photographers there to take pictures of you and make you spend more money! They also give you a card to use to spend which makes it difficult to track what you're spending.

My group chose to eat dinner at 8:00 p.m. in the evening which is way too late for me. One of the guys was very proud that he could get all the steak dinners he could handle at one time at every evening meal! Really!!!???!!!??? Then they spent the rest of the night drinking, drinking, drinking.

I could go on, but you get my drift. Get it; drift?  :D

So I have no desire at all to ever go on a cruise again. Perhaps a more sedate cruise on a different cruise line.

I have never been on a cruise. To be honest, I was interested in going in the past. But with all of these incidents of people mysteriously disappearing, I decided against it. :-(

No. I think I would enjoy a short cruise. Maybe 1 or 2 nights. Not so sure about a long cruise.

No matter what age you are (I was 16) you will have a blast on a cruise vacation!  Can't wait to go on one with my boys now that we are over 21!  But seriously, best vacation of all in my opinion!  Do it!
