Our first Cruise was on the Disney Dream March 1-3,2012 Bahamian.

We were hoping to try a 5 day cruise, but they seem to be discontinuing the 5 day cruises. So our next cruise is the May 4, 2014 4 day Bahamian on the Dream. 7 Day cruising is a little out of our price range.

First cruise was on RCI's Sovereign of the Seas in October 1997. We sailed to Nassau and CocoCay on a 3-night cruise.

First Disney cruise was on the Magic in February 2000. We sailed to Nassau and Castaway Cay on a 3-night cruise.

Carnival Jubilee when I was 15, so 1993??? SCHEDULED itinerary was Cabo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. We got to Cabo, I don't think I disembarked, though. Then a tropical storm hit, we had to book it out of there and went to -ENSENADA They gave out free drinks for 1 hour for the inconvenience. My sis and I and out little clique we were forced to form when NOONE from Carnival showed at the kids club for teens were all served REAL stuff. None of us sent our drinks back. Whole cruise was just one nightmare after another. My sister had a huge pile of pool loungers dropped on her toe by a crew member which required a horrendous visit to the ship Dr. Our room steward who was supposed to keep the peace was found partying with our neighbors by my dad who went looking for him at 5 am after we had tried to sleep since about 2am. . . My dad, who RARELY complains sent a letter to Carnival. We all got coupons for "10% off your next Carnival Cruise" We all still laugh about it and I think I still have mine!

August 1988, Pascagoula MS to Mayport Fl aboard the USS Stark. Not too high on the luxury list, I had to share my "stateroom" with about 40 other guys and the food was pretty blah, but she was a kick to drive. Also did a five week cruise to lovely Guantanamo Bay Cuba, I'll bet that's a port most haven't had a chance to experience.

Oh, luxury cruise? Still have 67 days to my first one of those.

Disney Magic, Western, October 20-27, 2007. Dreamed about that cruise for over a year before we even booked. Was definitely hooked once we actually cruised. Have since been on the Dream (June, 2011) and am booked on the Fantasy (October, 2013).

Ive only been on one cruise. The Big Red Boat in 1998. It was a blast but we had total boat envy when we saw the Magic sitting next to her. That was the year the Magic came out. Next year we will be going on the Magic 15 years later.

We did get off at castaway cay. Leaving for our 2nd cruise in 38 days on the Fantasy, 7 nights this time!!

Our 1st cruise was December 2003 with Carnival.

Our 1st DCL cruise was the Wonder Hurricane Frances cruise in September 2004. It was supposed to be a 3 day but turned into 4. We missed the scheduled ports and ended up visiting Cozumel and disembarking in Port Everglades. I was pregnant with my youngest at the time. He gets upset that the cruise doesn't count towards his Castaway Club status!
"And so many nights I just dream of the ocean; God, I wish I was sailin' again; Oh, yesterdays are over my shoulder; So I can't look back for too long; There's just too much to see waiting in front of me, and I know that I just can't go wrong...." Jimmy Buffett
