Unless you hit a big storm or a stabilizer has an issue on a large ship you really dont realize its even moving in most cases. Just a very slight rock most of the time. You notice it more when you get back and stand in a shower and you feel like you are still moving.

i get sick deep sea fishing, so i know i wouldn't make it on a cruise regardless of the situation.




I would assume a cruise ship doesnt sway like a 36' CC

If you do catch a cruise out of NOLA. Going down the MS at night is really nice as well.

My wife and I just took an Alaskan cruise. While we experienced some of the negatives you posted, here are our positives.

-You unpack once, and your hotel travels with you.
-The service is typically amazing.
-The ability to see multiple cities without the hassle of planning how to get there, or wasting time while traveling.
-Seeing whales, otters, and other wildlife from our boat

Supposedly they are debauchery vessels with people sharing bodily fluids on every deck.

Pretty disgusting, imo.

West Bay Beach ftw. I'll go back to Roatan for sure. Great vacation.

Posted as I sit on Ambergris Caye under a tropical depression. We are hoping to see the sunshine sometime this week. At least it isn't blowing 50 today with horizontal rain.

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


Went on one a month ago , and had a blast. I haven't been one before that since I was 5, so obviously there wasn't much I remembered about going on one. I was hesitant to go with the negative press over the last year, and the OT ballers constantly putting them down (especially since I was going on Carnival), but my girlfriend's mom paid for it for her graduation, so I didn't have much to lose.

It's a pretty cheap vacation overall, convenient, get to see different places, the service well exceeded my expectations. Are there some fatties and white trash folk on the boat with you? Of course. But if you're one of those people, like me, who doesn't let other people who aren't affecting you bother you, then you'll be fine. Are there better vacations you can take for a little bit more money? Of course. Just for some background, I'm a 24, male, and went with a group of 11 (seems like the more people, the better). Cruises aren't for everyone, but I enjoyed the hell out of the 7 days I was on one.

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


I went on ALOT when I was younger, but cruises were different back then. Still had a captains formal dinner, etc.

In the last decade or so I've been on some Royal Caribbean and Some Carnival. They are not my favorite, but offer alot of things to do for families. Everyone I know who has ever taken a kid says their kids love the childcare. Most cruise lines have adult only sections for relaxation if you want to get away.

I've done both spectrums too..the interior room on carnival and a suite with a balcony and their fun for different reasons.

Me, my wife, her best friend and her husband and our kids (we each have a three year old) are going on the 5 day Carnival cruise in September.

We realize what to expect, but vacation days are at a premium this year and we wanted a beach vacation with only having to take 1 day at work, this is even easier than Orange Beach, and cheaper too.

As long as you know what to expect, I think you can have a good time, but if this trip was the highlight of my year, I can see how easy it is to be disappointed.

Whether or not someone wants to pay for it or not and all is another story, but seriously, if you can't have fun on a cruise, you're a miserable person.

I have been on a few cruises but actually enjoy going on the Carnival redneck cruises. The people I meet are more entertaining and do a lot more stupid stuff after they get drunk. And since most of those people are also LSU fans it gives me someone to talk to football about.

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


It isn't like sitting through a Justin Beiber Documentary that you can't turn off. There are things to do that any unhappy sap can enjoy.

For us, the decision was made for two reasons:

1-simpicity
2-cost

1-I can be on the boat less than an hour and a half after I walk out of my office. When I get off the boat, I am home in less than an hour. Even dealing with the traffic exiting the boat, it's still less time than driving from Destin or Orange Beach.

2-For three of us to cruise (including food), it was less than the cost of the condos we wanted for Labor Day weekend. The food isn't terrible, just don't order anything that needs to be cooked to a specific temp (when in doubt between the chicken parm and the steak wellington, get the parm)

Like I said, I think there's a difference between taking a cruise for a good time and making a cruise THE vacation you take this year. We just got back form Paris, are going back to Disney for 8 days in January. Spending 4 days at a State Park in August. We wanted something quick and easy that didn't require more than 1 day off work Carnival was perfect.
