Do you have favorite cruise vacation stories to tell?

Do you have favorite cruise vacation stories, or a travel adventure story! You know - the one were reality and fantasy traded places! You already know that we think cruise vacations are the greatest holiday on earth. But we want to know how you feel here. Maybe you took a fantastic Mediterranean cruise exploring the wonders of old civiliztions.

Perhaps you went "down under" visiting the magnificent Great Barrier Reef or cruised the crystal waters of the Caribbean.

One of our favorie cruise vacation stories took place on the Celebrity Mercury in March of 2007. We were inivited to dine at the Captain's Table with several other couples. It was a very special and gracious evening. The dinner included magnificent food, fabulous service, wonderful conversation and at the conclusion the Captain presented each of the the ladies with a long stemmed rose! Doesn't get more romantical, does it? And with the laughter at the table, we know the Captain had a great time too!

Another wonderful cruise had us in beautiful French Polynesia. At the island of Bora Bora, we rented bicycles and toured the island leisurely. And what would a trip to Boroa Bora be without a rest stop at Bloody Mary's! And yes they are as good as the rumours! Seabourn - Champagne in the Water On our latest cruise in December 2007, we were treated to champagne and caviar delivered by the ever attentive staff wading into the warm blue water. And believe it or not, there were several uniformed staff serving caviar to complement the champagne.

This was followed by an outstanding lunch on the beach on china no less along with great entertainment. Oh did I mention this took place on a private island called Hunting Caye!!

Where ever you went on your "sea holiday" we want to hear about it. We want to know:

  • Where did you go?

  • What cruise line or ship did you travel on?

  • Your review of the ship services, accommodation, food and entertainment.

  • What wonderful ports did you explore and what did you love about them?

  • Any tips or ideas you discovered!

  • How were you treated?

  • Discover any secrets?

Feel free to write as much as you want and if you have pictures to illustrate your adventures, so much the better. We would love to see your photos and put your story on the web for you.
