Default Who has over 20 cruises under their belt???

I'm going on 19 with my next cruise - I actually had to add them up to find out how many as I'm loosing track now. Who has over 20? Is it going all over or is it mainly the same routes and trips? I ask only because I realize that 11 on mine are to the Western Caribbean. Others were Panama Canal full transit, Hawaii, Eastern, Bahamas, Mexican Riviera, and Southern Caribbean. Debbie

Gives me something to look forward to! We haven't taken more than a week off at a time since 2000 and are long overdue. We did Hawaii then. Love the comment on "looked under belt and found a cruise ship!" That was great! Debbie

I've been "working" diligently for about 5 years to catch up to CA and Ray, but the dang cruise rabbits won't sit still.

Of course I'm half their ages and work way harder than them, so it's understandable that I can't catch up

Think the next one is around 46 or 47. I keep threatening to sit down and make a list, but never take the time.

Do consider ourselves VERY fortunate having done the east, west and southern Caribbs a few times, a couple of Panama Canals, a couple of Hawaiis, a couple of Mex. Rivieras, a couple of Alaska, a couple of Mediterranean and Baltics, and a transatlantic crossing (with another crossing coming up this month).

Thinking in 07 I really want to work in a South America cruise!

Would like to do Hawaii, New England and maybe Europe.

number 22 or 23 (lost count)..done eastern,western,southern several times each, west coast, Greek Islands 5 times and Venice (my all time favorite), my favorite caribbean is eastern if it includes a private island

Have taken my cruises in all the day ranges, 3-4-5-7-8-9..and believe it or not the 5 day cruises seem to be the most enjoyable..3 -4 is too short, 7 is about at my limit, 8-9 day I get antsy

Something over 35 I think including 4 transAtlantic, 1 transPacific, about 6 Panama Canal, several in Europe and the majority in the Caribbean (eastern, western, southern), central and South America and Mexico.

And, right now I'm stacked with five - Caribbean or Panama Canal. The 5th one doesn't show with my clocks ... yet!

Just finished #25 and have done eastern, weatern, southern, and 'exotic' Caribbean cruises along with a Hawaii, Tahiti and European Trans-Atlantic tossed in. Still want to de a Med cruise and think that we will not do another until we can save enough to do the Med.

Not yet, but I'm working on it!

Jose, on the other hand, since he worked more than 15 years on cruise ships, can't even begin to count! !

Default Who has over twenty cruises under their belt?

Kuki: you said you hadn't gotten around to making a list of your cruises. We collect a chip in every ship's casino, then fill in the dates. Only 17 with #18 coming 12/11. Never lose that anticipation; guess I'm not alone.

We're on our way to catching up with Ray and CA too. Getting ready to do #61 and have 62 & 63 lined up. Don't have countdown clocks for those since Mike, being the great guy he is, did the one and only that I have. Life is too short, do what you can while you can and as someone else said, spend your kids inheritance now!

We have done 20 since 1993 with 21 coming up in just a few days, Liberty from Rome to Miami.

Kuki, a long South America cruise would be great!

19, very close to 20! :-) I'm not big on the Caribbean so I work at keeping my other places list longer!

8 Caribbean and 11 incl. New England, Panama Canal Full Transit (2),
Alaska, Tahiti/Hawaii, Hawaii/TransPacific (2), Transatlantics (2), Iberia, and Transatlantic w/Iceland/Greenland.

I'll make an exception in 2006 to cruise with my CM friends! :-) I don't do short cruises, I've never been on a cruise less than 7 days at least the Century one is 5!
