I look forward to the END of the lifeboat drill - that means vacation has officially started and my time is now my own!!

HA - I almost forgot about those events. I actually only attended one drill out of my last four cruises - OOPS. The last time it was because my brother and I missed the ship and caught up with the Mercury on day four. The cruise prior to that, our entire group of 250 was told we could skip it to continue our cocktail party! Oh yeah - and my mom didn't like em if it was a bad hair day so we just hid on the old Norway and they never found us or wrote us a note asking us to repent, etc.

Not that I am suggesting anyone else skip them, mind you. Evil or Very Mad And I did attend nine of them before I turned into bad Tad.

Do as I say, not as I do, right??

I look forward to seeing the land disappear off in the distance!! That's when I really know that my vacation has begun.....that and the first evening sunset.

For a classic example of a taxi dancer, I highly recommend renting the movie: Out to Sea with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. They are hired to be taxi dancers on a cruise ship, it's a fun light hearted comedy.

Saw this movie a few weeks ago - very cute. Some excellent interior shots of HAL's old (1980-90s) Westerdam, formerly Home lines' Homeric. Definitely a watch if you enjoy older ships.
Wish more lines still had the gentlemen hosts than just Cunard.

I agree with this - nice, fresh fruits and berries too. And they're always presented so beautifully too - beats anything I could do at home!

My absolute MOST favorite part of cruising:

Room service coffee & breakfast on the balcony - while watching (and taking 1000s of photographs of) the sunrise.
This is the most perfect time for me.

You hit it right on the head Pam! Nothing I love more than watching the ocean and flying fishies while enjoying my coffee on the balcony. Except walking on to the ship itself!

Soft serve ice cream any time I want it!
That's why I was disappointed with the Crown Princess last fall. They don't have that "feature".

Hi Carole,
I was really looking for the thing you MOST looked forward to more than anything else. Most people it is just to get away. But to me you can get away without cruising. when I thought up the question I was hoping for something particular to cruising Very Happy .

If you look back, I did put something earlier. I look foward to the land disappearing as we sail out of port.
I do think the flying fish relates to cruising since that is the only time I have ever seen them. But my all time favorirte thing is sitting on the balcony and watching the land get smaller and smaller!!!

As far as I know, only Cunard. I believe HAL used to and I know Celebrity did, but they (Celebrity) cut the program awhile ago.

I've never seen a female dance host, though I don't think they're very likely. Usually it's the ladies who want to dance and need partners because their husbands aren't there/aren't up to the job. Cool

I love that feeling you get when you walk over the gangway and take your first step onto the ship. The welcoming smiles and the feeling that you have arrived and your cruise has officially begun!!
