We have had just 2 cruises with great memories from both (on small ships) but here goes...
Embarking at Port Canaveral - 'Oceanic' looked enormous!
Meeting Mickey Mouse on deck!
Feeling dwarfed by an NCL ship at Nassau (can't remember which one)
The Midnight Buffet food displays - we took pictures (rather than eating!)
Sailing away from Palma (Mallorca) at night.
Following the same ships from Port to Port
Great Food and entertainment.
Sarah Brightman singing 'Time to say Goodbye' over the ships loudspeakers as we left Naples.
Inching our way into Mahon (Menorca)
We have never booked a solo cruise before (always part of a package) so this year on Brilliance OTS is a 'proper cruise' on a big ship!
From what little experience we have had. Food Quality was better on a US ship than My Travel's 'Sunbird'
Now we are retired we hope to cruise more regularly - only drawback is living in Spain rather limits our options.
