Ocean cruises

We have decided that when we travel, we do not want to drive or walk a lot. Our arthritis is indeed a hindrance.

So, we are toying with the idea of taking an interisland cruise next March. Why March? Because it is cooler in March than in the summer. It tends to be very hot and humid in Hawaii, especially during summer and autumn.

We will try to get the lowest price for a 7-day cruise, which will take us from Oahu to Maui to the Big Island to Kauai and then to Oahu. The ship will be the Norwegian Pride of America.

If all goes well, we might take a Mexican cruise the year after next. We will have to fly to Los Angeles, California to join this cruise. We have never been to Mexico, so we are truly looking forward to visiting the western shores of this great country.

Of course, it all depends on our finances and our overall health and sense of well-being.

Hopefully, we can do this.

    That is a great idea! This should be a wonderful experience. The ship is big and beautiful and holds more than 2100 passengers and a crew of over 900. I can hardly wait for the experience of a lifetime.

    Daughter has been on several cruises, but there was certainly trouble with a few being quarantined early in the pandemic.

    I toook that cruise in the October before COVID. I went with my brother and his wife. I’m thinking of doing it again this coming Christmas. Five years ago I went in March with my friend from college. I highly recommend it, plus you don’t have to fly to Florida for this cruise. Just go down Bishop Street and turn left. No jet lag. Bon voyage! Also for you, you may have good whale watching on Maui.

    That sounds great, hope it will be possible for you! Valerie

    This sounds like a good idea as a travel option. A trip around the islands will give you a taste before committing to a longer journey as well. I have never been on a cruise but I have given thought to a European river cruise “some day.”

    That Hawaiian cruise sounds like a great idea! There’s a young British woman on youtube I like, her channel is Emma Cruises. I don’t know how she affords it but she’s been everywhere, on every ship. I hope you & David get to go, Gigi.

    Cruises can be delightful. Everything is handy, food is wonderful and almost available 24 hours. Taking a local one first seems a good idea.

  11. DeniseinVA Says:

    I hope you can do this also. It sounds like a wonderful trip that you have planned.

    I hope you can too.

    Great idea on a cruise! And the option is to stay on board if you are tired.

  14. DJan Says:

    It sounds like a wonderful idea, and a good way to travel without doing much walking,

  15. Nancy Chan Says:

    Holiday cruise is a great idea. I hope you will get to go and enjoy yourself.

    I love Mexico! I was only on one three day cruise. I enjoyed it. Good for people watching. I was disturbed by all the overweight people though.

    So wonderful to read about travel-plans!
    We´ve been in Mexico, saw Tulum. A nice part of the world, and also yay to cruise your own place.
    Cliché here… the new “Magnum” series came to Germany. I refuse to watch it. It´s not Tom Selleck!
