Mine would be something that includes Bora Bora.

btw, Borneo and South Asia is quite far apart. And as I am born in Borneo (Malaysia), I would definitely recommend both Sarawak and Sabah to anyone who wants to visit Borneo.

A ton! I've been to Europe before but never on a cruise. I think it would be fun to see ports I've never seen before through a cruise line. I definitely want to do Alaska and Asia. I think it would be awesome if most cruise ships visited Boracay in the Philippines. Those are my top three; after that, I'd like to visit Australia and South America. Basically... before I die, I'd like to go on every route we can!

Sailed on RCI Allure of the Seas October 2012 to the Western Caribbean on our honeymoon

Sailed on RCI Freedom of the Seas February 2013 to the Eastern Caribbean

Sailing on RCI Explorer of the Seas May 2014 to Bermuda!

My Bucket List is totally a wish list and most will probably never happen in my lifetime, but it's fun to dream
  • Hawaiian cruise that doesn't involve NCL
  • Alaska on a Celebrity Cruise ship
  • Climb a rock wall on any RCCL ship
  • Be chosen as a married couple for the Newlywed Game
  • Get my husband to wear a tuxedo (that can apply to on land too )
  • Stay in a suite that has butler service and a bathtub
Previous Cruises:
Sun Princess Maiden Voyage Western Caribbean -- 12/1995
RCCL Navigator of the Seas Western Caribbean -- 03/2003
RCCL Radiance of the Seas Honeymoon Cruise! 04/09/06
NCL Pride of America Hawaiian Cruise-- 05/05/07
Princess Diamond Alaska 7/19/08
Celebrity Solstice 2/22/09 and by far our favorite!!!
Celebrity Constellation 1/26/13
Serenade of the Seas 2/22/14]

Full transit of the canal for me. Christmas island for the wife. Retirement looms in 18 months, so should have both of those out of the way within the next 5 yrs and hopefully 1 or 2 others to boot, including the Fall Boston - Quebec City trip.

Also looking at chartering a crewed boat w/ friends to do Baltimore to Miami on the inland waterway at some point .
Decided early in life to be a miscreant and have succeded beyond my wildest dreams....

Not in an particular order:

Australia/New Zealand
Baltics including St. Petersburg
Western Med including Morocco

We're already booked for Tahiti in 2014 and were planning on Alaska in 2015, but I think instead we're going to London (land based) in 2015, Australia/NZ in 2016, and France (land based) in 2017. I should probably change my signature.
Past Cruises...
August 2002--Disney Magic Eastern Caribbean
October 2005--RCCL Mariner Western Caribbean
October 2011--Disney Dream Bahamas
June 2012--Windstar Wind Surf Back-To-Back, Rome to Venice to Athens
April 2014--Paul Gauguin to French Polynesia

Three weeks in Europe (two on a ship) with a 20" roll aboard and a tote bag--packing list here.

My all in a 20" wheeled bag for a warm weather cruise packing list here

20" rolling bag packing list for two weeks in a cool/cold climate here.
