and the time, I cannot even do a 12 day cruise.:laughing:

Not quite the same routing, but I think this lady is planning on somthing similar. This blog she did is one of the best I have read.

I know, I didn't either until a few weeks ago until I was searching Panama Canal cruises on a travel agency site. I just put in Panama as the criteria and to my surprise, cruises of 60+ days popped up. I started researching further and found other cruises in the 80+ day. WOW is right!!!

OMG, talk about the trip of a lifetime! Pretty much hits everywhere in the Pacific I'd love to go to.

I guess I need to play the lottery more...

Yeah, I guess if you had LOTS of money, were retired (imagine being able to miss that much work), had someone to look after kids, animals, house, didn't mind being away from family & friends for so long, oh and of course did not mind traveling continuously for a few months... could be lots of fun. :rotfl2:

Intriguing, none-the-less.

I don't think I'd book even a 7-night cruise on Regent, let alone a 103-night cruise!

I was on the Princess Cruise line site the other day...and sae that they offer around the world cruise....about 107 days total..starting in Fl, through the Panama Canal...over to Australia, Indo China, Middle east, Africa, ending in Europe. Inside cabins starting at $21494.00

wow..what a cruise that would be.:woohoo: Small ship though...not sure if I would want to do an ocean crossing on that small a ship:scared1:

That's why most of the people on these cruises are rich old people.

I would LOVE to do it.

Small ship, might be a little scary out in the open sea....but awesome ports!!!

Why? :confused3 I've never heard much about them, so I'm curious. It is a smaller ship so that might be a little scary (like I said above) but I bet the service is wonderful.

I'm sure Regent is great - but I'm too cheap to pay for a luxury cruise line!

Ahhhh, to be rich and old :rotfl2:

Definitely interesting cruises, that is for sure.

Ahhh...this is dream time, though...you know, like when we win the lottery or retire from our million-dollar-a-year jobs. :rotfl:

Our town sits right next to a town that's basically a retirement town for the very, very wealthy. I can't tell you how many times a day I pass someone (me in my Mini Cooper) driving a Jag, Mercedes, even a Maserati yesterday....driving 10 miles under the speed limit....gripping the wheel with a death grip.....and look like they have one foot in the grave. I always think it's sad to waste such hot cars on the old. :sad2:

In all fairness though, I WILL be there myself someday. But I won't have a hot car.:sad1:

True....and I don't. I guess I don't want that 100+ day cruise badly enough. :laughing:

I've heard about retired people that don't own a house they just travel cruise ship to cruise ship. When you think about how much you spend on living expenses it might be about even to be on a lifelong cruise!

After what we paid for two years for my father in law in an assisted living facility, I told my husband to just plant me on a cruise ship with a nice balcony room....it couldn't be any more expensive than what we'd paid for dad.

Do you have to pay tips on a 103 day cruise if you eat at the quick service restaurant every day? :rotfl2:

I could cover the fare, but tips and excursions would be a killer :lmao:

Think how much weight you would gain on a 103-day cruise! :scared1:

Logistically... a cat 3 is about the same as a navigator suite. Cost wise, you get the 103 days for the cost of 70 days on DCL.

I'd totally do it when our kids are fully grown and out of the house. But I do agree about the weight.

I actually lose weight on cruises. I do a lot more walking, and we do open-ocean snorkeling, so that's a lot more exercise than I get at home.
Plus I'm not a fan of all the fancy food, so I usually end up with a plain salad and a chicken breast.
I wonder if my insurance company would pay for a 100 day cruise for me, as a weight loss clinic??? :laughing:

Oh, you are so on to something here! :thumbsup2

I also loose when I cruise as I'm more active than I am on any given work day. AND I eat better on the ship...more variety, smaller entree portions. Even with a dessert every night at dinner and one cocktail a day!
