What We Love About Cruising

cropped-promenade2 11.12.04 AMNow this is what we love about cruising. It’s not the food, the shows, the casino, the bingo, the pool, or even the cocktails. It’s not even about one particular ship or cruise line. It’s about being at sea.

We love to stroll the promenade deck after dinner – there’s nothing quite as romantic as that. It was love at first sight on my first cruise in 1982, and Rich totally embraced the love of cruising as well.

We’ve been reading the Cruise Critic boards about the 2.0 rollout that our ship recently received and while we may be disappointed the Miracle didn’t get Guys Burgers or Blue Iguana, we’re glad they didn’t get the outdoor movie screen, a staple on most ships these days.

While it seems nice to be able to sit outside and watch movies under the stars, we don’t want anything to impede upon our quiet strolls. Maybe this area can be avoided and it won’t be a problem on a future cruise, but, for now, we’ll enjoy the fact that they didn’t add the movie screen.

And while it’s doubtful “Seuss at Sea” will sail with us, we won’t be disappointed by that either. It’s really for kids – we just got excited about it when we saw the Mouse Steps video – it made it so Disney.

Some people are disappointed that Carnival seems to have done away with the showroom live band and I was, too, at first.

After making a big deal out of getting a new dress for the cruise (because I haven’t worn one in decades), I realized that with the hotter weather in Mexico and casual Carnival style, I don’t want to wear it on this cruise after all. It will be perfect for the Princess Coastal Cruise in the fall.
