travel cruising the world overview list

Taking a journey over water has, for me, always been an exciting experience whether it was a long cruise or a relatively short ferry crossing.
As Lynn and I get older we find we still want to see more and more places.... but work at it a little less.
We have found travelling by cruise ship services this purpose well.
Here are some of the trips over water that we have enjoyed....


I have rated these cruise experiences using the following Travel Fanatics Unlimited scale:
***** excellent    **** very good    *** good/average    ** poor    *terrible
