Well, my first cruise was in 1983, on Royal Viking Line - the company that is said to have invented the concept of luxury cruising. I worked on the RV Sea and th RV Sky, and in a span of 7 months made my way as far southwest as Tahiti and Northeast as the Norwegian Fjords, with a stop in Rio De Janiero on the way.

My very first cruise involved 10 days at sea from my first day out, Los Angeles to the Marquesa Islands in the South Pacific (remember Survivor?) then on to Bora Bora back when there were hardly any buildings there, down to Tahiti, five days to Hawaii, and five days back to San Francisco.
