Aloha Friday! Cruisin’ Edition

The cruise ships are invading my little town…

Actually, I LOVE living in a town that’s a cruise ship destination (and not a HUGE harbor).  The giant moving cities drop anchor right outside of Lahaina Town.  It’s magnificent to the kids.  I’m hoping some day soon we can jump on board and take a cruise around the islands.  I think that would be so cool! And with me saving so much on my total Hawaii vacation cost I will be able to make future vactions.

So my question for you on this glorious Aloha Friday is…

Have you been on a cruise?  If so where?

And if not, would you like to go on a cruise? Where to?

I’d also love to do a cruise in Europe, maybe around the Greek Isles or around the Mediterranean.  I’m sure it’d be awesome!

So now it’s your turn, spill it!

  2. Cruising is the ONLY way to travel. It’s like a big floating Club Med city! All there and so much to do. Love it…the HI island cruise is fantastic. Would definitely do it again- love Royal Caribbean. Also want to do more of the Caribbean cruising and the Mediterranean. Best part to me are the days at sea…forced relaxation to truly slow down the pace of life! Favorite way to travel by far! Excursions allow you to also see places on land but the floating hotel, city of the ship is amazing. Highly recommend it.

  3. My hubby wants to go on a cruise, but I am not sure. That huge boat on the water makes me think of Titanic. lol I am not sure why I have an unhealthy fear like that when I fly without issue. If I did go, I would go to Europe. The water is beautiful there.

    How are you? I heard warnings about Tsunami and am praying so hard for you!

  4. like everyone else…i would LOVE to go on a Disney Cruise.
    i’ve never been on a cruise. aside from the fact that i get sea sick/motion sickness. but i would suck it up for a Disney Cruise. plus i have a fear of sharks so don’t like the idea of being out there on the open water with those creatures…LOL!

  6. I did go on an Eastern Carribean cruise and liked it, although the weather wasn’t ideal and we had some rocky waves. At that time I didn’t think I would cruise again, but sitting here in 15 inches of snow in Cleveland I’m dreaming about it.

    I’d love to go on a Mediterranean cruise too. I think that would just be an entirely different trip altogether.

  7. My dad used to work for Carnival Cruise Lines. One of my memories his him coming home when I was in elem. school and he was just like – let’s pack and go! It was so rushed. His least favorite cruise ever, but a great memory for me. I’ve been on two cruises total, both to the Caribbean Islands. My parents are always cruising. LOL. They did take a cruise to Hawaii. Currently, I hate boats though. They make me pukey. Blegh.

  8. I live in Hawaii too (on Oahu) and we always see cruise ships. I want to take one around the islands also, but my kids say no unless Mickey Mouse is there lol.

      Thanks for coming by Ohana Mama! Great to meet you!

  9. I have never been on a cruise. But I would really like to go on one of those Disney cruises with my family. Or maybe a romantic cruise to a deserted island. I SO need a vacation!

    • @Leah – Diaries of a domestic Goddess, I used to think a Disney cruise would be hell (stuck with nowhere to go and Mickey ears all round me, ack!) but now that I have kids and a new love for Disney, I think it would be a blast! Add that to my list! Fo sure!:)

  11. I’ve never been on a cruise but I would LOVE to – pretty much anywhere! A European River Cruise, an Alaskan or Canadian Cruise, The Bahamas, the Caribbean – bring it on!

  12. I went on The Big Red Boat when I was in high school. That was Disney’s cruise line back then. We went to the Bahamas. It was a blast. I was scared to death to get on the boat (big fear of open water) but once I was on deck for a while I was fine.

    I won a Royal Caribbean Cruise but we never took it because my husband couldn’t get off of work that weekend.

    We hope to go on one in a few years when the kids are older.
