Five, within a 365 day period. The most within a calendar year is 4.

Take care,
Mike

We did 5 in one year - if we can count a B2B as two cruises!

We've done 4 in a year a few times, but average is 3. Very seldom do we do 2 and we only did one cruise once, which was our first cruise.

Guess you could say we're hooked!

Lately though, we've been doing less because we go for a longer period to do some sightseeing before and/or after the cruise. Like when we did our 12-night Baltic cruise, we spent 2-1/2 weeks touring around before & after, so we were actually gone for 32 days.

We just did a 17-night cruise from Hong Kong to Beijing that was awesome! Spent 8 days touring before and after that one.

But if we're not going to do any sightseeing, we've gotten so we don't like cruises that are any less than 10 nights. Much nicer to do the longer cruises.

I have never cruise more than twice in one year. We only did that twice.
We usually cruise once a year and since we do many other trips, I don't expect to do more than that.

I've already done four this year, and have two more booked. I don't usually sail during the summer, so this will probably be it. (Unless I see another GREAT deal that I can't pass up.)

I've gone twice in one year only once. Most of the time I cruise every other year because it takes me that long to save up the money.

I feel extremely lucky to do one in a year, because we also enjoy other types of trips. Wow, LF, you are nicely stacked!
