Just curious who on here has ever been on a cruise.

I used to work for Celebrity Cruises so needless to say, Ive been on TONS, just not as a passenger. I met my wife while working (she was working on the ship as well) and in January we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary by taking...you guessed it....a cruise!

Its actually the first vacation we've ever taken that just involves the two of us. LONG OVERDUE.

Its on a Norwegian brand ship, so if anyone has taken their "Freestyle" cruising, Id like to hear some feedback if you would be so kind.

So. Where have you been? What did you do on shore? All that good stuff.......

Oh. I should add.

If anyone is thinking about taking a Caribbean cruise and has questions, feel free to ask! I've been to many places down there as well as the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Panama Canal, and Alaska. ;)

Went on a cruise two summers ago with Royal Caribbean. We visited Haiti, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and the Dominican Republic. Truly beautiful islands! I've never seen more beautiful sights. I'd recommend it to anyone! I had a blast on that cruise.

When I lived in Florida, I went on a five-day cruise. Left Tampa, went to George Town (Grand Cayman) and Cozumel (Mexico) before returning back to Tamp. I went mainly for the social experience. That is the only cruise I had been on.

I really want to go on a Caribbean cruise (Royal Caribbean to be exact).

Tell me which islands you would recommend going to.

I'd love to hear about your Norwegian cruise experience as well.

I went on a little 1-2 hour boat ride and got hammered, that's the closet thing to a cruise I've been on, I went to San Diego with my coworker to see the Ravens game at Chargers this year, and his uncle works on a boat and the night before the game he got us all on for free and free drinks, and phew, it was gooooooood

Good idea... wouldn't want it in some form of digital writing that could be used against you later in a court of law or something.

Are you allowed to say who you met, at least? I'd imagine some A-listers.

The brand name is "Celebrity Cruises". No real celebrities that I can remember, but I drank a ton when I wasnt shooting film or doing satellite work.

I actually met quite a few celebrities while I worked for an entertainment show called Deco Drive on Fox channel in Miami. All sorts of movies being shot down there, club openings, etc. I'll tell you, the craziest celebrity fun I had was with Dennis Rodman at a strip club opening.
