Great opportunity to get in touch with your inner alcoholic and be shocked by the tab.

Check out Celebrity Cruises or Regent. Luxury lines for under 10k.

of course i know there's luxury liners that go around Europe, Alaska, and the Mediterranean, but I'm talking about these ones that go out of Mobile and Nola. i just always hear about all inclusive and groups seatings with random people and small cabins. why i would like to be informed.

Good for hs senior trip or possible cheap spring break alternative for older college kids tired of gulf shores. Other than that, none.

Yikes. That more than it would be for all four of us. Not sure if that is worth it.

If you're worried about the size of your cabin, then you're doing it wrong.

Help me understand the appeal of a cruise, i'm thinking
waiting in hot line to get on it
tiny rooms
buffets
crowded pools
motion sickness
sloppy people
over sense of claustrophobia
what am i missing?


If you don't want to go on a cruise, don't go on one. No one is going to round you up at gunpoint and make you.

Okay, maybe the Carnival line, but not the rest of them.

re: What are the positives of going on a Cruise?


There are some great restaurants on some cruise ships. One of the best steaks I have had came on a cruise ship.

Its def not buffet only.. At no point are you ever forced to go to a buffet. At lunch and breakfast you always have the choice of a sit down meal in the dining room.

What I like:

You can see many different countries on one trip. I would have never known to go to Roatan if I didnt go first on a cruise.

You have a nice sit down meal every night and generally a couple of formal nights. I know my wife likes getting dressed up and taking all the pictures to be able to take home and frame.

I sleep like a baby on a cruise ship with the slight rocking. You generally have bars, clubs and a casino just a few floors away and a show to see each night. The service is impecable. On pretty much all lines. You are waited on hand and foot on pretty much everything. No stressing out on getting somewhere or getting stuck in traffic etc.

that go out of Mobile and Nola


Generally NOLA and especially Mobile get the worst ready for retirement cruise ships around. If its not a 7 day cruise and isnt going to Alaska or out of FL its generally going to be a booze cruise. 7 day cruises are night and day different even on Carnival than the short cruises. Disney is about the only line worth taking a non 7 day cruise on. Most of the negative comments people make come from those on short cruises.

your typical cruise goer (not all the OT ballers), goes on a cruise because it is cheap and they want to sit around a pool/beach and get drunk for a few days

that's it

it's basically the same as going to Destin, but you see some different places

genero knows all this, as well.

He just wanted an outlet to brag about his trip. Cut him some slack.

If you're talking about the NOLA/Mobile/Tampa Carnival cruises, well it's just like asking why do people go to Panama City Beach or Daytona?

Either they're college/HS kids who just want an excuse to get wasted and shitty for a week or they're trashy rednecks who don't know any better

re: What are the positives of going on a Cruise?


I went on a cruise once and just did not enjoy it. I would rather fly to my destination and sit on the beach instead of being stuck on a boat. I explored the ship, saw everything I wanted to see and then ended up gambling and drinking a ton and I'm not a gambler. My family had nice balcony rooms/suites, the food was okay, I didn't get motion sickness, etc. - just wasn't my thing.
