Hubby, the girls and I will leave soon on our cruise. This will be the 4th for hubby and me, but the 3rd for the girls.
I truly love cruising. I love how relaxed I feel. Each of our cruises has taken us to new destinations and I love going to new places. Each cruise we’ve been on a different ship, even a different size ship. Our next cruise will be no different. We’ll be visiting two new places on a different size ship and I can’t wait.
As much as I love cruising though, hubby and I have been discussing future trips. Do we take another cruise? Do we visit Europe? Do we visit Canada?
We’ve seen most of the U.S.
We’ve visited several different countries in the Caribbean.
We’ve visited Ethiopia in Africa.
When hubby was in the Army, he spent two years in Germany and I believe he visited Austria, but that’s pretty much it.
He’s been to Canada on business. Toronto to be exact and I think he visited another time as a child.
I’ve never been to Canada.
I’ve never been to Europe.
Until fairly recently, neither were on my bucket list of places to travel. As I’ve learned more about these countries though, they have not only made the bucket list, but have quickly moved to the top.
It doesn’t seem like this is a decision that needs to be made in the near future. After all, we are leaving on a cruise soon. However, if you’ve never cruised, you may not be aware that the cruise lines often offer some good deals to those who book their next cruise, while on their current cruise. I am in favor of taking advantage of a good offer.
Hubby has pretty much nixed the idea of a European cruise and after some discussion, I think I agree with him. It is a long way to fly just to go on a cruise. Our time would probably be better spent traveling around Europe and seeing as much as we can.
But what about a cruise to from the U.S. up to Nova Scotia? Get off the ship, stay in Canada for a few days and then fly home? Cruising and a trip to Canada all in one?
My last boss and his wife went on an Alaskan Cruise and absolutely loved it. You should look into that if you really like cruises. They went in the summer so it wasn’t as cold but still beautiful. They flew in and went to the Denali Natl. Park first which they also said was absolutely breathtaking.
We have talked about taking an Alaskan cruise and I’ve heard others say how beautiful it is.
I think that might be a cruise a few years down the road when the girls are older.
