The only time you stay in a hotel is either pre-cruise or post-cruise

If going to Florida means getting on a cruise ship

You have a go bag ! You have a suitcase in the closet already packed with clothes and stuff for the islands.

You see your cruise friends more often than your family.

You calculate major expenses by how many cruises you could take with that money.

New refrigerator = 1 cruise
New car = 10 cruises
Pacemaker = 40 cruises

Take care,
Mike

Your children refer to islands as "We went there on a cruise" or "We haven't been there, but will on an upcoming cruise"! And yes, my kids are definitely Cruisers!!!

You know you are a cruiser when you don't stop at traffic lights

You know you're a cruiser when.....

You stuff your bed into the walk-in closet to pretend you're in an inside cabin

You hook the vacuum up to your toilet just to hear the "Wooooosh!" when you flush

You sit down at the dinner table at exactly 6 pm and expect to be served a multi-course meal....and your spouse walks by and laughs at you.

You start looking for the missing cabin steward around noon when your bed isn't made....once again your spouse laughs at you.

You look shocked when the local restaurant expect you to pay for all the food you have just eaten.

You say 'hello' to total strangers, expecting them to reply in kind

You're laid down in the garden wondering why the drink's service is so slow (and as per blueliner's comments - your spouse just laughs at you)

You know you're a cruiser when:

You walk around the house with wet hands, because all your towels are folded into cute little elephants, monkeys, sting rays and other critters, and there are no towels left to dry with!

You get apprehended outside "Dennys" because you walked out without paying the tab.

Everyone at the office, calls you for "Cruizin' Advice".

Your travel agent occasionally meets you on your cruises, because you send her so much business.

The "Home Page" on your computer is "CRUISE MATES"!

"SKY"

when . . .

you have a hickey on you hiney from flushing the toilet


the little piece of plastic is all you need. No keys, no money, no drivers license or cards.

you turn on TV to see where you are

you use the stairs rather than the elevato

you tell time by food related events. Oh, its 3 o'clock - fresh cookies poolside. Hmm, 5:15 - sushi's out

you buy beer by the bucket

you can have as many entrees as you want - and ALL of the deserts!

you order a drink based on what the glass looks like - and for some reason it seems totally acceptable to drink out of a monkey's head

you are actually interested in your waiter's family, work schedule and next vacation

Friends start a conversation with, "Where are you going on your next cruise?"
