What's the farthest you've ever been on a cruise, north, south, east and west?
I know there are lots of veteran cruisers on the boards so I'm sure they will be some interesting answers.
I'll start North-Arctic Circle, South- South America, East-Russia, West-Hawaii
Thanks in advance for playing!

The furthest we've ever been from home was St. Petersburg, Russia. That's an 11 hour time difference. 12 hours of course would be halfway around the world!
Furthest north would be somewhere on the Baltic cruise. Helsinki maybe?
Furthest south would the the southern tip of New Zealand.
Furthest west (since we're coming from California) would be Singapore or Bangkok (not sure which one is further west). Furthest East is St. Petersburg.

East: Eastern Caribbean (need to check a map for the island that is most easterly!)
South: I'm going to guess Aruba, but I might have to get out the map to confirm that too!!! LOL

Hmmmm... Lets see.....
East or Southeast would be the Caribbean
and basically after that we are west and north deprived
we are checking off the north this coming August because we are going to New England and Canada.
Guess now we need to set our sites west (young man ... west).
Darn...we need to get out more.

North....haven't cruised north yet. Will be in Halifax this summer with the July 1 sailing of QM2.
South....somewhere in the Caribbean I guess...Grand Turk? Puerto Rico? Don't know which one is further.
East....again somewhere in the Caribbean or the Bahamas...not really great on the geography of the islands.
West....Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Could that be the furthest south as well. Too lazy to get out the maps & figure it out.
