Hi, I know a lot of people think it's for oldeies but I've always wanted to go on a cruise, somewhere cool like Mexico or the Carribean. Has anyone got any recommendations?

Depends on where you are buying from (ie. where you live) but for my side of the world I go to Flight Centre NZ for all my travel. They're not just flight specialists, they set me up with an amazing Mexican Riviera cruise last year which was just fantastic. This is their cruise specials http://www.flightcentre.co.nz/cheap/specials/cheap-cruises

Wait, aren't you the same laradicky that just a few weeks ago had no idea where to buy cheap tickets out of NZ? If you are a Flight Centre staff member, why don't you just say so rather than trying to hide it. Make FC look really bad, for really no reason whatsoever...

I knew there was something I forgot to do this morning - delete laradicky's comment for promo reasons. That will teach me to answer the phone at the same time.

Isa now returns this thread to it's originally scheduled topic of cruising the high seas.

I would suggest a five day trip for starters, to see how you get on. If you like it, then go for longer. If you don't, then no real harm done.
A couple of recommendations.. Harwich to Oslo and back. It's a round trip of five days and most sailings stop in Denmark for about 5 hours on day 2, and 4.
Another idea is a cruise around the Greek Isles. There are many of them and most depart from Pireas (near Athens). You can choose a 2 day cruise, or go for a week if you like. Obviously the longer you go for the more it costs, but if you want to get off and get a plane back, you can (at extra cost of course).
I would never recommend a 2-3 week cruise to anyone who's not sure whether they're into it or not. Stuck on a boat for 14-21 days and nights with just a short stop for shopping - if you're not into it, can be a real loser. Oh and very expensive too.
Incidentally, the Greek Isle idea is cheap, much cheaper than something booked through a cruise agent and pro-rata with cost.
