Traveleeze pastilles are good for sea sickness
The wife of one of my friends is claustrophobic, so can't fly. They'd love to visit Orlando with their grandkids, so they're looking at a transatlantic cruise. Trouble, is, it adds so much to the trip time, they might be away from home for anything up to six weeks!
I've not been on a cruise yet, but I've hear Royal Caribbean come highly recommended, along with Disney, of course.
it would be quite some drive from New York! somewhere around 18 hours driving, I would plan stops on the way though to see things that you wouldn't normally see. This is the kind of thing we plan to do when retired, when time is not a problem :)Originally Posted by Tony G, post: 324870, member: 1391
Don't get me wrong... I'm glad I've experienced it but if I was to do it again I would go the Caribbean route. Trouble is with big ships you land at ports that are far from the sightseeing places and people don't realise that you then have to pay extra to get there. Sometimes by train or expensive excursions.
It is quite alright to go on a cruise ship and never step off it, the experience is that wonderful.
Effectively that's what we did on our last Disney cruise on the Fantasy this past September. We'd been to all the ports before so, with the exception of St. Maarten where I did the 12 Metre Challenge port adventure, we stayed on the ship pretty much the whole seven days.Originally Posted by Esmeralda, post: 324896, member: 2007
And it was wonderful!No rushing madly about trying to get off the ship. No wandering aimlessly around trying to figure out exactly what did we want to see. Instead, a relatively quiet ship, a comfortable deck chair on deck 4, a good book or six, warm caribbean breezes, and all the food and drink we could handle. I know what we'll be doing the next time we go.
