    Hi, there,
    I have some good suggestions about what you have written.
    One of my biggest dreams is to conquer ( you could write that, if you were a sailor and wanted to conquer huge waves or the oceans, but I think you aren't!) so it has to be cruise the ocean with a wonderful cruise ship ( you are on vacations, aren't you?) and let go of all the burdens and worries and of course enjoy the view - will it become true?
    And no, you cannot use BY a cruise ship, because the use of by indicates passive voice- for example , the oceans will be conquered by me .

    Hope I hane been helpful,

    But we do not say with car, with plane, with train although if if the sentence is not passive.
    We say: I go to school by bus. They went to Australia by airplane

    So, where does it come from that by is only used with passive voice?

    ***NOT A TEACHER***May I suggest something like: One of my biggest dreams is to sail the oceans on a big cruise ship so that I can enjoy the beautiful views and relax from the everyday burdens of life.
