This is my first post, so I thought I would have fun with it and ask if YOU are making any New Cruising Resolutions?

Mine...to go on at least 1 cruise this year. I have not been on one for 3 years. I have my eye on the Pride.

What is yours?

Mine is to book an eastern or southern itinerary. Seems we always do the Bahamas or Western Caribbean ports.

Don't wait too long to go on the Pride. She's leaving Baltimore.
That's why we booked our cruise leaving on Feb 2. Also, we love Superbowl on board.

I haven't thought of cruising resolutions yet, but Alaska sounds like a good one!

My travel resolution for 2014 was to go somewhere I've never been.

Instead, I booked my first solo cruise for early February. That should be as good as a new destination. Then again, maybe I'll get to do both!

My resolution is to do something new on every cruise. in 2012, I snorkeled for the first time on a cruise in the western Caribbean on the Legend. This year, I did a Segway tour of Nassau while on a Bahamas cruise on the Pride. I snorkeled again as well. For 2014 I am booked on a Southern Caribbean cruise on the Sunshine. Other than never having been to these ports before, I will have to find something completely new to do. I like to push my boundaries and try something that I normally would not try.

I am going to Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Turk.

I hope to do a better job at saving money, so that I can take a cruise at least every second year. My last cruise was 4 years ago. Though other things in life have caused me to stay close to home ( I had to cancel a couple of cruises since then), I still hope to fluff up that vacation fund, so that I know I can cruise if life is good to me.

My resolution is, not to spill a single drop of the first DOD after I board, no mater how rough the water is or fast the wind is blowing.

I'm already booked on a 94 day World Voyage so my cruise resolutions pertains to what I do during the cruise.

1. Use only the stars
2. Don't gain weight
3. Don't do anything stupid and hurt myself
4. Try to do something different or new at every port (there are 36)
5. Try new foods (I'm a picky eater)

Hope everyone else gets to fill their resolutions and cruise in 2014.
