When I was 10 years old in 1970 my parents took me on a cruise. 3 weeks from NYC to the Med and back. First Class on the Italian Lines "Michelangelo" at the time the 3rd largest cruise ship in the world. The QE2 and the France were larger. She had a sister ship, the Rafello (spelling?). It was a lifelong, memorable trip.
When I got ouf the Navy in San Diego I never wanted to go on a ship or boat again. A reggae station did Friday night booze cruises in San Diego Bay. My friends would go and I never would. I spent so much time just off-shore on the hook or operating staring at the city lights I couldn't imagine paying to do that again.
Anyway...I won a cruise to the Bahama's while in my 30's. It was okay, nothing like the luxury I experienced on the first cruise. But...I had more fun in a different, adult way on the Bahama's cruise.
While working in the GOM my Captain would often go on cruises because he wife wouldn't fly.
There nice but just not sure I want more time staring out at the ocean no matter what the luxury. Plus I have little self control with food and would gain a ton of weight I'm sure.
