Yes, me! We have a friend who has a lot to do with Alotau and Misima Island and I would love to see those pristine places in PNG.

Maybe they are going to surprise us with a new ship, as well as new destinations, Liz.

Then we would all be excited!

Been all over Alaska. Of course, the obligatory cruise, a B2B (one 7 night cruise from Vancouver to Whittier, and another 7 night cruise back). The next year we drove from Tennessee to Anchorage, Alaska. Walked on a glacier (Matanuska glacier somewhat near Anchorage, hope I spelled it right). Drove to Seward, Kenai Peninsula, Prudhoe Bay (took a dip in the Arctic Ocean), and Valdez. Next two years we stayed in Fairbanks from March-September. Ice Alaska, Mush for Kids, and of course the Northern Lights (but the cold...).

Egypt is definitely on the bucket list. While we're in the area, might as well do a safari too.

Also, an Antarctica cruise. Already have it planned out; we'll drive to the very southern tip of South America, catch a cheap last-minute cruise, then fly back (to the US). There's just one small section where there's no road and the car would have to be shipped (to Colombia I think?).

England, Scotland, and Ireland. Never been (well, was in Ireland for a layover, that's it).

Europe tour. Maybe rent a motorhome and just go sightseeing. I dunno.

And there's all the stuff to do in Australia. I've crossed off petting a kangaroo and a koala. Still got the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru to do, maybe a trip to Sydney as well.

The only problem with my bucket list, is it keeps growing faster than I can cross things off!

I agree, Liz.

BTW When I said a new ship, I didn't mean brand new, I just meant newer/different.

Just finished the first of our bucket list - circumnavigated Australia with 3 ports in New Zealand. Incredible.

Next is HAL's Voyage of the Vikings in 2013 - 35 days. Greenland, Iceland, Sweden, Netherlands, and Ireland.

Wink Antarctica

I've completed most of my Bucket List, including roundtrip San Diego to Hawaii, Panama Canal Ft Lauderdale to San Diego, Australia/New Zealand and Alaska twice. I've been to six of the seven continents, that being said, I plan on doing Antarctica one day. I've read wonderful things about that cruise. Anyway, one day.....

My DH and I have cruised Alaska and it was great but no comparison to Egypt. We did a Nile river cruise I feel that is the way to see Egypt not on a large cruse ship where you are only in Egypt 1-2 days. I agree my bucket list just keeps growing. I am planning on ticking off Australia since we are planning on going in November and I hope to go on and African Safari or to China to see the Great Wall next year.
