After three years going to the Pearl, we decided on this cruise. Never been to this area before or a c/o cruise, looking forward to both and of course the great time on the ship. We will go to visit Italy a week prior to explore the Amalfi coast.
REMEMBER: It's not the size of the boat nor the motion in the ocean, it's whether or not the captain can stay in port long enough for all the passengers to get off! :US

We have been on 9 lifestyle cruises and 3 more booked into 2020. The ship size varies from the smaller ships (Azamara lines that Desire uses) to the mega ships like the Independence of the Seas. The Independence had over 4200 lifestylers on board this recent cruise. The Azamara ships have about 350 cabins for ~700 lifestylers. We were on the Azamara Quest last summer on a lifestyle cruise (not Desire) from Rome to Barcelona. The cruise was nice but, like the others have said, it is not the same as a lifestyle resort experience (Members at Desire, so frequent trips for us). The pool is NOT clothing optional during days at port and most of the Desire cruises are in a port each day. So you have pretty much a vanilla cruise experience during the day unless you do a clothing optional excursion if they are offered at that port.

The playroom was not staffed well on our cruise and you pretty much had to fend for yourselves there. The larger cruise playrooms have staff that maintain the rooms during use.

The Desire cruises are appealing for the destinations and night time activity potential. You just have to weigh the cost for the value received and decide if that works for you. We do a mix of the Caribbean lifestyle cruises and weeks at Desire. YMMV....

We are originally from Atlanta so I am sure you know about the Big Chicken, lol. We are flying in from Hawaii and looking forward to our 1st lifestyle cruise. We have been to Hedo and Desire, but haven’t played yet. However we are looking forward to meeting some great people and making some new friends. We signed up for the Meet and Greet as well.
