Default I'd love my partner to...........

What's the nicest thing (besides paying for your cruise) that your husband/wife/partner could do for you on a cruise, that you'd REALLY appreciate?

Mrs. Kuki would say, send her on a cruise without me.

-- well, my DW is currently on a tour of Spain .... without me ... ;-)

She does so much for me on a cruise, and I really appreciate it. (Fortunately she does not read this board.) One of the best things she does is to NOT drag me along on certain shore excursions that she insists on!

The little touch that she likes is when I order flowers for the cabin.

Just having my DW along with me is enough. The rest takes care of itself.

...keep doing the little things she does or endures.

One example: On the Voyager of the Seas I try to set on the second level of the dining room so that I can see the beautiful chandelier. One spring break cruise I did get that table AND 4 hot Co-eds from Texas A&M. Great for me, not so much for her.

That is way too politically correct an answer for me. Sucking up the wife; shame on you

Kuki, this should be easy right! well then why am I sitting here unable to think of anything. Actual the fact that she takes time away from her work to go on a cruises, is a big deal for her. I am sure many times she would rather stay home and not get behind with her clients. I think it is more difficult now that I have discovered the B2B thing. Flying from California for a one week cruise is just to expensive. Mike

While we usually order the Room Service breakfast (and it's fine), I'd love for my DH to go to the Lido deck and bring us back a real HOT breakfast :-).

I'd appreciate the heck out of that :-D!

The best thing my hubby could do for me would to have certificate in the cabin for me to spend a day in the spa ( or at least half a day). For me to do for him would probably be not spend any money on anything.

My wife is pretty easy and we enjoy most of the same things.

Something I really appreciate and is a very sweet thing to do is: Quite often I'm not able to go to dinner or get out of the cabin. She will either, go to the buffet and get my dinner. Even going as far as getting a tray on ships without trays. She knows what I like and I don't even have to "put in my order".

On ships or suites that have in-room dining from the dining room she will put in the order and we'll have dinner in the cabin. Except when we're sailing with Kuki. Then she leaves me in the cabin with a couple of soda crackers and has dinner with him.

One time I went out and when I awoke a large plate of sushi was waiting for me by the side of the bed. It was one of my fondest memories.

Take care,
Mike
