How is cruising now different from 25 years ago?

Another great way to travel. I often base myself in a large city for a week or longer and take such daytrips as well. I love the train system in Europe -- and Japan's is similarly convenient.

I’ve done a couple of types of multi-week stays each in Italy , France, the UK and Ireland. Type I is staying in/getting to know cities, getting around by train; type II is renting a car and taking day trips from a non-urban base to regional smaller towns — ideal for areas like Tuscany, Gascony/Provence,  and Ireland.

I sure hope to experience Japan's some day.  But for now, I need to sign off because a needed project waits for me outside and I cannot put it off any longer.  Haha

 

Stay safe and keep dreaming of what good things will be around the next corner.

Exactly -- where some would rather have the more deluxe ship experience, others might make a different choice. Your Norway experience would greatly appeal to me.

 

I for one want a deluxe suite experience on our cruises, in general want a very relaxing cruise, I do enjoy our Europe cruises even though they are not all that relaxing but still know we return to a nice ship that has some good entertainment and food and drink.

Absolutely and that's the best way to do sightseeing especially in Europe

That's what we like also but that's not "the best way" for everyone.

Which is why you'll not find me saying there is a "best" way to travel. Everyone has different expectations.

 

To me, it's the travel experience itself that's important. Others enjoy the relaxation part more. Whatever floats your personal boat, right?
