Vegas Cruisers?? Anyone interested in joining a thread with all those nearby Vegas that love cruising??
My DH and I have been cruising for the last 10+ years and are definitely addicted to it. We don't feel right unless we have at least , preferably 2 or more, cruises planned for the next year... We've cruised on Princess, Royal Caribbean, and Holland America to the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada/New England. We usually always get a balcony room since I just have to smell the ocean air not to mention the seeing the ocean going by my cabin window/door.

Come share your cruise stories and your favorite places and cruise lines.

Well, even though we don't live in Vegas I think we're closest to get on your thread that you started. Just wanted to let you know I found it. The way I'am with computers it wasn't easy. I will write more later, have to head to town for a drawing at one of the casinos, maybe I'll get lucky. Looking forward to meeting you and your other half on Sunday or Mon. Maybe I can pick your brain about my problems with this stupid computer. Badlands

Hi Dan and Nancy,
So you are going on the Monarch later in Sept. When you say that you are doing a B2B, are you doing both the 3 day and 4 day?? We are going on the 9/15 sailing and leave for LA to visit family on Sunday and then will stay at the Crown Plaza Sunday night. We have never been on the Monarch, but a lot of the people on our very enthusiastic rollcall have been and say it is wonderful... We will try to take good care of her for you..

We have cruised RCL, Princess, and HAL. Love all of them.. Of course, what's not to love about being on the ocean.
Glad that you found the site and please get anyone else you might know in Vegas to join in. There have to be a lot of us in the "desert" that love to escape with cruising..

Badlands- Glad that you found the site too. As far as computer ease. No, no, that is not me. I've learned so much on this CC site other than just fabulous info about cruising. I find CCers so helpful in any area that you might need help. Nonnie, from our Monarch rollcall, helped me get this Vegas Cruisers site (like her Arizona Cruisers site) up and running and accessible from my signature.
Look forward to meeting you onboard the Monarch next Monday. Yeah!!

Hello teachergal, badlands and rednancy.

I'm Mike from way up north in Carson City. I know the OP was looking for those in LV or close by. As you well know, out west anything within 4 or 5 hundred miles can be considered "close by" Anyway, count me in. I'll keep checking back from time to time.

No cruises lined up. We did two this year, the last being a Monarch 3-nighter back in June. I was looking at the 9/29 roll call as my mother (her first cruise) and three of her cronies are on that sailing and saw the link to this thread (thanks rednancy!). Hopefully the fine folks in FL will take good care of her!

All of our cruises have been on Royal. We've been happy with them so far, not too motivated to stray for the time being. I would like to hit diamond, then maybe give the X a try. I hear good things about them and they'll give you elite status if your diamond on RC.

Happy cruising to all!

Hi,
We're Toby and Laine from Las Vegas. I love to cruise, DH enjoys it, but mostly goes because I like it so much. DH is semi retired, and we have slowed down our cruises, because we now have time to use our little RV, take the dogs, and see kids back East. We had done about one a year since 1995, but now we're down to about one every year and a half or two. I'd LIVE on a ship!!!
We've cruised HAL, RCI, and Princess and are Platinum on Princess. We have cruised in the Caribbean, to Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Alaska, and the Mexican Riviera. We keep dreaming of the Med, but haven't done it yet. Our next cruise is a Mex. Riv. one, as we are looking forward to driving to port, instead of flying. We like sea days and being on the ship, sometimes don't even get off. Our favorite cruise, so far, has been the 15 day Hawaii cruise from L.A.
Fun to "see" other cruisers from Las Vegas. Nice to see the ocean once in awhile and get rehydrated!

I'm glad that you found us here.. We also have cruised RCL (just made 5 credits), HAL (6 cruises), and Princess (about to take our 4th). We also love the Hawaii cruise, our last being on the Island Princess (15 day) and we will be doing another Hawaii cruise this holiday for 14days. Can't wait!!

Yes, we are really excited.. This will be our first cruise over the holiday season. We were looking to celebrate both Christmas and New Year's onboard. What better way than to enjoy Hawaii too!!

Are you both working or retired??

Welcome, Mike, I'm sorry I didn't see your post earlier. More the merrier!! Do you ever get to Vegas for work or pleasure??
Thanks, rednancy, for sending you our way. Hope your parents enjoyed the Monarch. She's about to take her last west coast cruise(10/13). We were on her 9/15 and loved the itinerary as well as the overall excitement on the cruise.. The Monarch will be missed....

Yes, we are really excited.. This will be our first cruise over the holiday season. We were looking to celebrate both Christmas and New Year's onboard. What better way than to enjoy Hawaii too!!

Are you both working or retired??
I think the holidays would be a perfect time to cruise, since most of our family is away. We have often cruised over Thanksgiving, but never the December holidays. I would in a heartbeat, but DH is a traditionalist!
DH is a consultant, and has his own little company, and can often set his own schedule. He works from home. I am his earstwhile "office manager" and "travel arranger".
Are you retired? We have lots of teachers in the family, and I know it's difficult for them to get away through the year.
Hello, and happy cruising to our fellow Nevadans on this board.

Yes, I retired several years ago after teaching for nearly 30 years. My husband retired just a few years ago from the gov't. We are both in our late 50's. So we have been enjoying our retirement by trying to cruise at least 2, maybe three times, a year. I can't think of any other way to relax other than to be on the sea with the ocean breeze in my face. And my favorite spot on the ship??? The aft and being hypnotized by the wake of the ship. Talk about nirvana... Isn't it Dec. 24th yet....

Welcome, Mike, I'm sorry I didn't see your post earlier. More the merrier!! Do you ever get to Vegas for work or pleasure??
Thanks, rednancy, for sending you our way. Hope your parents enjoyed the Monarch. She's about to take her last west coast cruise(10/13). We were on her 9/15 and loved the itinerary as well as the overall excitement on the cruise.. The Monarch will be missed....
Thanks for the welcome teach. I don't get to LV as often as I used to. Seemed like I practically lived down there with my previous employer. I get down there about once or twice a year these days for work. My wife and I did attend the Na$car races in March, and we have some acquaintences in the area. Matter of fact some friends from Henderson visited us this past weekend. Sure was cold up here - 40's and 50's during the day and well below freezing at night. Anyway, they froze they're you-know-whats off. Killed off that last of our garden, but it is supposed to return to the mid to upper 70's by weeks end.

My mom said she had a blast on her first cruise 9/29. Sounds like the weather was great, "almost too warm." I told her that the Monarch is a fine ship - too bad she is being relocated - but that she is not really representative of the newer and larger ships that have quite a bit more in the way of amenities. Still, Monarch was always a blast and will miss her like everyone else. Would love to be on her right now, although somewhat bittersweet I imagine being the last cruise out of San Pedro. We are talking about maybe doing the MR on Mariner OTS later next year. Not my first choice in destinations, but we won't have to fly which is a pain in the a$$ these days.
