As you can see from the list below, we started with the eastern and are working our way around the world. We've loved all our itineraries and plan more in the years to come. We have had some overlap of certain ports, but never repeat the same cruise
After my DH suggested doing something really cool for our 35th anniv coming up in Dec. '01, I called my step-sis,a TA. Since we didn't know where to start, she set us up with a 7-night E. Carib. cruise on Explorer. The rest is history and now DH is even more into the itin. decision making. He overheard fellow pax on Jewel last summer raving about the Mexican Riv. and Aust/NZ and said we HAD to do these cruises. So we just did the MR and while on board Mercury, booked her for next year for Aust/NZ. What a guy!!
I still want to do:
The "other" southern ports besides Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten;
The Mediterranean and 5 day land tour of Italy--Galaxy
Whatever else there is that we haven't done yet.
So many cruises, so little time, lol.
My advice is pick any one to start and go from there. Happy cruising!
