As much as I wish I had been on every cruise ship on the planet I am sorry to say I haven’t, it’s still very much a work in progress.
There are some ships I am really looking forward to trying but for specific facilities or features, I would love to cruise on them of course but, if I were given the option to board and check out just one thing for an hour these would be some of the things I would go straight for.
Norwegian Epic – The Aqua Park, I don’t know why but for some reason I am more or less desperate to try the bowl slide and I could quite happily stay right here. Usually I would look at these and think oh maybe tomorrow then say the same thing every day following but this; I just want to get on it NOW!
Queen Mary 2 – Her wonderful and traditional tiered stern would be my instant choice. I would like nothing more than to stand right at the aft of this ship, as high up as possible and simply enjoy the view of not only a wonderful ship but the trailing wake she would leave behind. This would probably be my “relaxation” option.
Allure or Oasis of the Seas – Either one of these beauties would do for me to be honest. I’d happily just place my feet onboard and nothing else just so I could say yeah I have been on the world’s biggest cruise ship. 😉 However should they allow me to go deeper into her hull I would head for Central Park. The reason being I want to see for myself how they managed to add something like this yet still keep the feeling of being on a ship. (I quite like traditional cruise ships really so this for me is of interest)
Disney Fantasy – I am going to cheat a little bit on this one because I would have to see everything. The child in me would emerge and I would take off around this ship like I was Speedy Gonzales himself. I couldn’t board a Disney ship and not see it all; I would feel like I was committing a crime against all children and adults around the world. See they are clever the folks at Disney, they may target a younger audience but we all know whether we were 9 or 90 every Disney cruise ship would steal our hearts and make us feel young again….until they sounded the whistle….then I may be tempted to get off!
I could probably add a few more, well more than a few but the above is a small sample of what’s on my “To Do” list.
