Has anyone done a cruise?

Postby ducati_paul » Sun Jul 01, 2012 4:57 pm

Thinking of doing one at Xmas to Vanuatu, only really done one other cruise and that was from Athens to Venice but I was on a Contiki tour so don't remember much of it new_all_coholic.gif
Looking at P&O, Princess or Royal Carribean probably, anyone got any hints or tips? :?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

not done a cruise myself Paul but a few mates have. The rooms are tiny and smell bad. You don't want to spend any time in them at all, so don't pay a premium for an 'upper' deck room.

Apparently the entertainment is pretty good. Try and avoid a pensioner cruise though.....unless you have a hankerin' for a GILF.

My wife and I went on a cruise in 2010 aboard the Pacific Sun. We had a great time and didnt get sick.

The rooms are not as bad as Gos Makes out. But be prepared for lots of down time where there is only time to relax and drink.

Make the most of the ports when you stop.

Just got home today from a 10 day trip on the Pacific Pearl..

Had a GREAT time......Do It Paul, you will have a ball :kuda: :kuda: :kuda:

Tip: Take plenty of $$ dough $$, drinks/cocktails etc can be a bit pricey

Food is all included in the price, tastes good and all you can eat.
So I'm an even fatter bastard now that can't fit into the leathers. :P

Duty Free = 2.2 ltrs of grog and 50 cigs WTF is that shit :shock:
I'll knock that over in a weekend. :partyman:

Gee it must suck to be you, one cruise ship sinks so you won't cruise, I hope you never see a photo of a bike or car crash, you'll call up in a ball at home and refuse to move :roll:
