The Best Cruise I Have Ever Been On Was. . .

Please give your comments on your best cruise and what made it the best cruise.

For my wife and I was on the Royal Caribbean 15 Day Trans/Atlantic Barcelona to Galveston, TX Spanish T/A. The ports of call at Cartagena, Spain was so good. A Mediterranean city and a navel station located in the Region of Murcia, southeastern Spain was just an incredible experience. Then the Canary Islands as the last port before we sailed off for six full days and nights at sea to Nassau. Being at sea for six full days provides an experience of what sailing is all about. Go to sleep with the balcony door open and hear the sea and feel the Atlantic ocean mist in the room. Wake up and sit on the balcony drinking coffee and danish sent by room service. . . .oh what a experience. No phone, no need to check emails. . .just the two of us and the water in view. I would love to do a long cruise again with many days at sea.

Best cruise was on the Celebrity Xpedition. This ship only cruises the Galapagos Islands. Much different that other cruises. No casino, no shows, no bingo, no specialty restaurants, no formal nights, just excurions on the islands everyday, some days 2 or 3 excursions. Hiking and/or snorkelling. Snorkelling w/ Sea lions, turtles, sting rays, sharks, penguins (yes, penguins on the equator), and all the pretty fish. 1000s of Iguanas, sea lions, tortoises, blue footed boobies & many other birds while hiking.

Our Celebrity Constellation cruise has been our favorite. We liked the size of the ship and never felt crowded. The food was good, especially the Seaside buffet which had the great pasta grill and the 'to die for' waffles. The service in the San Marco Restaurant for our late seating was excellent, and the staff very friendly. Our stateroom, 07-2127, was very nice and our room steward did an outstanding job. One thing we really enjoyed about this ship is the adults only indoor Thalassotherapy Pool. We spent a lot of time there. The layout of the ship made it very easy to get around and the decor was nice. We especially loved the Gorilla!
We are night owls when cruising and the ship had nice dance floors in it's various venues. The casino was very good, as well. We even broke even for the cruise! That was a first for us. We also enjoyed the piano entertainer Perry Grant in Michael's Club. We seemed to end up there around midnight every night.

I have a hard time picking out the best one.
Our cruises to Hawaii, Alaska, the Mexican Riviera were definetely excellent.
We also loved the two 10 day cruises we did in the Southern Caribbean on the beautiful Summit.

And then there was the awsome cruise on our favorite (so Far ) the Oasis OTS.

They have all been great and the favorite is the one we have yet to take.

Fixed the Perry Grant link!

You are really asking me to compare apples to oranges, but there are several that stand out.

>> The cruises to Alaska offer fantastic sightseeing and variety of activities in all of the ports of call -- definitely very memorable!

>> I thoroughly enjoyed the time at sea and the fabulous ports of call on my cruise to Hawai'i (round trip from Los Angeles) and both of my Transatlantic cruises.

>> For culture and history, you can't beat a cruise to Europe. I have been to the Mediterranean three times and to Northern Europe once, and all four of them are very memorable.

>> And the best tropical adventure unquestionably was my cruise to "French Polynesia and Samoa" round trip from Papeete, French Polynesia.

Sorry that I can't choose just one, but does this list help?

Norm.
