Default Cruisin w/ friends...

Has anyone ever brought a friend on a cruise with them? I might be bringing 1 of my best friends on the Adventure Feb 19 05. Is it weird with the tipping and taxi cab fares and stuff???

Yeah I have brought and gone on cruises with friends. In some ways its alot more fun, and some ways it sucks.
Its alot more fun, because usually you will get your own room together, meaning that you can do what you want, when you guys want. Its also cool having someone to talk about going and anticipating the cruise before it happens. While onboard, you have someone to hangout with 24/7, and while in port someone to hangout with.

It can sometimes be a pain though, when you want to go somewhere, but they dont because they are tired, it feels akaward just leaving on your own. And also think that you would be spending a week straight with your friend, do you really want a full week? I personally like to have time for myself.

It really is a toss up- but if it was 2,3, or 4 day cruise, I would say defiantly, but for 7or more??? Just go with your family, meet your own friends and have fun.

Thats just my $.02!

I took my best friend with me on my last cruise and we had alot of fun. Yes, we did get annoyed with each other at times but we still had fun. She is also going with me this year and I'm glad she is. It's just different with a friend. If you do take a friend I would reccomend taking a REALLY good friend since you do have to spend a week with them!

Yes, of course make sure your friend is outgoing and fun but also if you are cruising with your family, be sure your friend fits into your family well. Like, your friend can hang out with your family without you. I bought along my best friend, and she acted as my moms daughter, which was good, so we didnt always have to hang out. You shouldnt have to act as a hostess to your friend.

i brought my friend with me on my cruise and i thought it was fun.. but then a couple months after the cruise i realized that i would have been happier if she wasn't there. we were always complaining about wanting to do this and wanting to do that, and she liked all these people that i hated and she hated everyone that i made friends with.. and it was baaaaaaaaaad. but it was also fun because i had someone to sleep with and eat dinner with and chill at the ports with.. soooooooo its kinda a win/lose situation..

I took a friend on the Adventure in August and it was terrible. My parents paid for everything except her shopping. We even bought her one or two gits everyday, She never went to the teen center with me or just hung out. She was always trying to hook up with some guy. She refused to go to Johnny Rockets or order pool side drinks (to many calories). At dinner she'd sit through the entire meal and just eat the salad! It was awful and I wish I'd never asked her to go. I thought we'd have so much fun, but she was entirely different than she is normally. She acted like she is someone she wasn't the entire cruise. She also was so homesick for her mom that I couldn't believe it. We are 17 and seniors in high school! If you take a friend be prepared for the unexpected. Peronally, I will never again take one. It ruined my entire week.

Dan

Back on land she is pretty much her old self. She did tell everyone that cruises are not fun. That she doesn't know why I enjoy them so much, because they are boring and there is nothing to do. She tells everyone that she will never go on another one. All I know is that I'll never ask her again. I took another cruise, this time on the NCL Sea, in September (without any friends) and I had a great time! The ship is a lot smaller than I am used to, there weren't as many activities, and the teen program is not near as good as RCCL; but I still enjoyed myself greatly.
