Given the opportunity of back to back cruises, would you stay on the same ship, eat the same food, and see the same entertainment again, and not have the pain of packing up, or would you pack your bags with a smile,and hi-tail it over to another ship, and enjoy it all anew?
Trip, with her book & tea!

i'd do either it wouldn't bother me either way... but i really wouldn't want to have to pack all my stuff up again... so i'd prefer the same boat... 8)

The only time I would have gladly done that, was just recently on the Caribbean Princess. I had such a good time on her, and especially enjoyed Bert Stratton's entertainment, that I would've loved to have stayed another week!
Great question!! Either way for me, I am always game for a cruise and it would not bother me if it were the same one again. There is always a lot of the entertainment I missed so that I could catch it the second time around.
We did back to backs this last Christmas. Conquest and then the Elation.
The only real problem was that we kept getting the two ships mixed up. we would be sure something was here, and then realize it was the other ship.
We also went from a large ship to a small, and we went from a balcony to a window.
We also went to Cozumel twice in one week. Our neighbor and I were talking on the balcony while in Coz, and he said we should get off and enjoy while we were here. I told him that we were going to stay on the ship and enjoy the almost empty ship, and balcony, and that we would be back in a couple of days. We had to go to dinner, but later he said "you know little lady, they won't let you stay on the ship after you get back to Galveston. They dont let you ride until you get tired." I told him we would be back on the Elation, and after a few seconds, he smiled and said,"good for you."
While into our cruise on Conquest, we received a letter from the captain, welcoming us to stay in our cabin, once we got back to Galveston, and to just make an appearance at customs to just check in. We went to the pursers to let them know that we appreciated the invitation, but that the real guests in our room probably wouldn't appreciate the extra guests.
