On the Sea, On the Sea, On the Beautiful Sea

by Maggie Sefton

I loved, Loved, LOVED cruising!!   So much so, I can't wait to go again.  That means I'd better start saving up for next year.  :).  As I said last week, I usually travel to far away places and explore, so I'd always assumed I wouldn't have enough time to visit new places on a cruise.  Not true.  Also, what I didn't know is how much I LOVE being at sea.  Way out to sea, with no land in sight.  I should have gotten a clue, considering how much I've always loved being on boats of every description.  And I don't care if it's rough or smooth.  Doesn't bother me at all.  No seasickness ever.  So now, I'm going to see how I can afford to go on a longer cruise with MORE days at sea next time, maybe a TransAtlantic cruise.  I was on Holland America's Eurodam with 5 Star service, which really spoils you rotten.

Several of you shared your similar cruise enjoyment, and I found the comments fascinating, so I thought I'd repeat several here:

Cassie----Your Seven Seas Voyager cruise from Rome back to Florida, aft wandering around the Atlantic sounds wonderful.  I'd love that.

Bernie----I've always enjoyed European river cruises, too.  And I may have a chance to do one of those this Fall.

Norma----A cruise to Antarctica, now that sounds daunting.

Debra---Cruising in South America, that's definitely enticing.  There are so many countries to see.  I visited Venezuela years ago and also went to Angel Falls.  Beautiful.

Laura W---All those days at sea on your TransAtlantic cruise is exactly what I'd love.

Linda Mc---Oh, boy, cruising from Honolulu to Sydney sounds fantastic.  I've always wanted to visit Australia.  I really enjoyed visiting the Big Island of Hawaii a few years ago when a mysterym inference was held there.

Linda in MA---Yes, we had wonderful weather for exploring Old San Juan that Tuesday.  What sort of training shop were you on---US Navy?

Anyone else like to share their cruising experiences?
