I'm interested to see what is on everyone's cruise bucket or wish list?

For me it's Alaska and Europe (something that includes Rome). Wishing REALLY big is Antarctica.

I have alot on my bucket list.

A Nile River Cruise
Alaskan Cruise
Rhine River cruise
Greek Isles Cruise

But not necessarily in that order. I'm scheduled for one of my other bucket items this April - that is cruising in/out of Venice and visiting Istanbul.
The other items will need to wait a couple of years.

And, when you go to Rome, stay for a week. You will never see Rome in a day trip from the port. Same for Alaska. To go to Alaska and not see Denali is a shame, IMO.
