What do you regret not doing on your cruise?

Recommended Posts

Thought this would be a fun topic.

 

Two of mine:

 

1. Not staying up later, dancing, seeing Liars Club, etc.

 

2. Just walking around town when there is so much to see at many ports.

Getting the drink package - would have saved $15 a day. Got one for the upcoming cruise.

Singing karaoke. I have always wanted to do it, but don't have the guts, or the voice for that matter.
Try the piano sing along bar!

All the more reason to do it. If required a couple of shots of liquid courage will give you your so called 15 minutes of fame. ;)

Just off OASIS .....

 

not telling the a@@h*le in the next cabin that smoking on the balcony is not allowed, OR calling the desk to complain.

 

had a JS with the large hump balcony and most of the time was being gassed by a smoker ......

 

They only mentioned it about a dozen times in the 'drill' video .....

 

Maybe I'll get cards made up with this picture and caption "probable cause ... smoking on a balcony" ... then I can put them on doors ....

I want to get up about 3:00am and just see what might be going on. I say it every cruise and hubby just looks at me like I'm crazy!

 

Me too. Would love to wander round a ship which would probably be empty.

Nothing! It's a vacation...I do what I want, when I want. The things I don't do is are probably because I don't want to do it!

I regret not bringing a case of ear plugs with me on the cruise where I sang karaoke. Man, after I opened my mouth, I could of made a small fortune selling those things.;p

We have sailed about 25 times on RC, just made it to the Quest about 3 cruises ago. I regret not going sooner.

Ordering breakfast from room service. I'm always afraid that I will want to sleep in later and will have to get up to let them in or I will want to leave my cabin early but then I will just have to stay in my cabin to wait for room service.

What do you regret not doing on your cruise?

 

 

 

Not going skinny-dipping when the pool becomes "clothing optional".

We missed all the shows due to the Dodgers being in the play-offs. Next time I'm on one of Royal's larger ships I want to definitely see the shows.

I agree! I frequently wake up in the middle of the night at home, but always sleep like a rock on the ship. I might have to set my alarm and do this!

 

My main regret is not taking the Ship Tour sooner. I did it on our last Princess cruise and it was fantastic! It's pricey but was well worth it.

Lets see. I regret not booking the drinks plan for the remainder of my TA when I thought I might like to do so. But then I also regret booking the drinks plan for my later shorter cruise with no sea days. Got that rather backwards. Oops!

 

Regret missing several of the shows on my last cruise a little. We had very relaxed meals in the MDR instead which we quite enjoyed so only a little. Decided to try the late dinner seating on our next cruise so maybe we can manage the early show seating and dinner this time.

Some kids accidentally banged our door by mistake at 3:15 on our second, short Bahama's cruise. Once I was awake I wanted something to drink and didn't feel like water, so I threw on some clothes and wondered out thinking I could just grab a drink from the bar nearest our cabin.

 

Ended up wondering half the ship finding most things shut down. Eventually got a glass of cranberry juice from the bar in the casino which was all but empty and headed back to bed. Not even all that many cleaners out cleaning mostly glass cleaners and shiny things polishers probably because that can be done quietly.

There are always things we say we'll do the next time we cruise ... but seem to always find something else we'd rather be doing ... so no regrets! :D

Well on our last cruise we didn’t do any excursions, partly because we had another cruise booked for spring to the same ports. And we just had to cancel it bc I will be having surgery. So I wish we’d done more now. I don’t know when I’ll be going on vacation again.

Missing the Piano Bar! We've never really tried it before and LOVED it on our recent Glory Cruise.

I regret not volunteering for the hypnotist show on my last cruise. However, I don't know that I'm a good candidate to be hypnotised, as she had the entire audience do an exercise and I "failed". But still, I should try it one time just for kicks.

We finally did this in October & had breakfast on our beautiful Aft balcony. Why oh why did we wait?
