PF, many years ago I went on a Caribbean cruise with Mom, Baby Bro, and my sister, Cruella the Horrid. We went on Norwegian. It was OK, but DH and I much prefer to stay in one place and get to know an island.

That said, for you and Shrek, it might be a great way to see stuff! We plan to hit the Greek islands as well as Alaska on a cruise some time.

Thanks, it helps to know that some have enjoyed it, I've heard so much about how bad they are.

My BIL and his third ex just loved the Greek island cruise. They did it 3 times. It's sort of a bucket list item for me.

We went on a cruise in the eastern Caribbean several years ago and really enjoyed it. We're going on a western Caribbean cruise in February to celebrate our 30th anniversary. That one will be on Norwegian. My aunt and uncle have been on river cruises in Europe and loved them. I think they're doing another one this fall.

The European river cruises have interested me too. And there used to be a paddleboat cruise on the Mississippi that started north and ended up in New Orleans. That sounded like fun too.

I'll be honest, I absolutely LOVE cruising. For me, it's great bang for the buck, you get settled in/unpacked and you're done. You can be as involved or relaxed as you want, don't have to worry about buying food, you get to see a few places, and the typical day at sea forces you to unplug and just be.

As an aside, being from Bermuda, it's the cheapest way for me to go/stay without staying with friends or family. I can book a 7 day home out of NYC, Norfolk or Baltimore for far cheaper than airfare/hotel to/on Bermuda. . .and eating on the island is far from cheap.

I highly recommend them if you want a great bang for the buck.

I was thinking about a river cruise on the Columbia River, it visits my most favorite town in the world, Astoria, OR. Getting to Portland and back would be a bit of a mess and it is not cheap, almost $5000 per person.
