Re: Cruising vs. Voyaging

Cool question Barquito!

For me cruising is short trips where I'm returning home. NJ to Block Island, gunkholing the Chesapeake, the ICW, the Bahamas, even the Caribbean is cruising to me.

Setting off across the Atlantic, heading for South America, the Arctic, circumnavigating, those are voyages. It's a difference in scale and commitment.

I want to expand my cruising experience. I really don't have any interest in voyaging.

Does that make sense?
