Community Contest: Pick a Contest!
Hey Guys and Gals!

I am sure you can tell it is hard to have the creative mind to choose a new contest topic all of the time ;) So for this contest I am requesting your help. Reply with your contest ideas!

There aren't many rules: A weekly contest can be anything really - a question, trivia, request to share pictures of something, whats for dinner, anything you can think up. It can be cruise or travel related but it is never a requirement.

The only true rule is that I like to pick winners randomly so everyone has an equal shot just by participating.

So for this week your contest question is to help me come up with contest ideas. Post as many as you like either in one post or multiple posts - doesn't matter to me I'm easy.

I will choose a few winners randomly to receive a cool Critic Logo prize!

Thank you

Is there a drink/meal that sets a tradition when you cruise. For example; every cruise I have to start with a Pina Colada and lunch in the MDR.

What's your choice for picking a particular sailing...the ship, the ports, cabin pricing, loyality to a cruise line/ship?

OK, let me give this one a try. took a lot of my ideas!!! :eek::') But I'll list them again and maybe we will see them as questions in the future. :)

I was thinking about coming up with questions a few months ago and was thinking after a while that could get a little difficult.

Cruise questions:
- Do you choose your cruise for the itinerary/ports or the ship
- Favorite port and why
- Favorite embarkation port and why
- Favorite itinerary and why
- Favorite ship and why
- Favorite cruise line sponsored excursion and why
- Favorite local excursion not offered through the cruise line that you've taken and why
- Favorite month to cruise and why
- Do you collect souvenir drink cups from cruises (don't know about others, but Carnival has these) and if so, which is your favorite and why (pictures would be welcome)

Photo submissions:
- Your favorite photo that you took of a cruise ship
- Your favorite photo you have taken while in a cruise port
- Your favorite photo you have taken of the sea from the ship

That's enough...:')

Tell us why you choose to cruise!...and how you feel about the differences/experiences, especially if you have done other types of vacations as well.
After years of researching cruising and always going with our regular All Inclusive Resort vacation, Las Vegas or Land trip to Maui we finally booked our first cruise!
We are really looking forward to our cruise in September.:cool:
