I meant royal Caribbean had song of Norway.

Those were the days.

Stayed at the British Colonial in Nassau (of James Bond fame) and it was neat to watch the ships at the piers.

I like all vacations including cruises, but many people I know have never been on a cruise and refuse to go on one for strange reasons. Too
Bad for them.

I made this it's own thread, since I was the one who took the other thread off target. Sorry to the original poster..

We went on the Norway in about 93 or 94. I didn't care for it, as our cabin was old and nasty.. The thing I remember best about that cruise was that we took the White Octopus to St. Barts from SXM. Great trip to St. Barts!

Yes, there was the White Octopus and the Falcon. An on island friend set us up flying over to St. Barts and sailing back to SXM on the Falcon ( to save the stomach). The Falcon took about 2 hours on the return trip. Lots of music and rhum punch.

Fortunately, we have always had a pretty strong stomach. A lot of people were sick on that White Octopus trip, but we weren't. What year were you on the Norway, do you remember?

Without digging into the archives I am thinking 1988 or 1989.

I just looked in the archive and it was 1987 ( pre video).

John and I are late comers to cruising, our first cruise being on the Norwegian MS to Bermuda in 1996. It was a small ship as I recall and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We looked into doing the same cruise a few years later and were told the Dreamward had been cut in two and a large mid section added to it.

I don't know why this rings a bell but we were told the Dreamward was the sister ship to the Starward but we thought it held about 550-600 passengers. The cruise we took last September on the Pride of America made the first ship look like a dinghy by comparison and was almost too big some nights depending on how many glasses of wine I had with dinner. Both our suite and our balcony on the Pride were humongous and the latter held two large padded reclining lounges with a cocktail table and a round dining table with four chairs that could easily have seated six. Once again I decided I am definitely NOT one of the best cruise passengers in that I'd rather 'be' where I'm going rather than 'get' there.

Today's cruises on these mega-ships seem to have very little to do with the ocean, but all those other entertainment options, which have nothing to do with the sea. We have pretty much been perfectly happy sitting and gazing at the sea, especially if it's from our private balcony, these days!! Back when we first started cruising, I really don't think private balconies even existed. Pretty sure there were none on Seaward and she was brand new when we sailed on her. That is one thing that is so much better than long ago, balconies.
