Default So...whaddaya do?

...Hiya fellow cruisers! So, it's plain to see that we are all cruise addicts by night! But, I was wondering what some of you good folks do to pass the time during the daylight, non-cruising hours? Assuming we all have jobs to support our addiction, (unless we have a Lottery winner amoung us?) what does everybody do for a living?
...OK, me first! I've been a Letter Carrier for the US Postal Sevice for the last 9 years. Before that, my background is in Retail Management and Consulting. My wife Elaine is a Service Rep. for BellSouth, the regional telephone company in the Southeast. We have two daughters, ages 10 & 6, that love to cruise with us! Our next cruise? Onboard the Destiny October, 15th ...can't wait!
...So...whaddaya do?
...Calm Seas and a Gentle Breeze ...Doug

Hi Doug,
I work for a major food chain as an assistant produce manager. My husband,
George fixed computers. When ever we can manage it, we love to cruise.
We do have a 23 yrear old son who is also in the computer fixing business and a 20 year old daughter who works for a "cruise only" travel agency. She will be getting married next April, so we're also in the midst of making all the arrangements, seems to never end. George and I are planning our next cruise to the Eastern Caribbean aboard Explorer of the Seas 2 weeks after the big event in our family. I'm sure we'll be ready to just relax and do nothing by then :-)

Ok, lets hear from the rest of you cruise addicts!!!

Hi everyone,
I have been an office manager/purchasing agent at a sandblasting shop for the past 10 years and before that I had been in accounts receivable (hated that). Been cruising for only about 5 years. My 4th cruise is in about 185 LONG, LONG, days (can't wait). Going on the Fascination on 3/03/01. Any one else?

I think that I need to find a support group on Cruisers Annonomous.(prpbably spelled wrong). There is no vacation like cruising. And I know that all of you will agree with that.

Happy Sailing.

I stay at home with my 17 month old daughter. My husband is a technical manager for a chemical company. We leave on our 4th cruise - the Destiny - on Nov 12th and are anxiously counting down the days. Only 78 more days!! :o) We are leaving the little one at home with grandparents - we need the rest! But, I have never been away from my daughter for this long - I'm nervous.
We are thinking of taking her with us in March on a 3 or 4 day cruise. she will be 2 by then, so can participate in Camp Carnival. Any advice on taking a toddler on a cruise?

We have 2 daughters, one 14 the other 8 and they'll be going on their first cruise with us on 4/8/01 aboard the Grand Princess. Can't wait.

Hi Doug,
I'm a substitue rural letter carrier. My husband works for the state in the Family Independence Agency. We have 3 grown children, 2 married and one getting married in May 2002. We have 3 grand daughters and a grandchild on the way. Had to reschedule our Jan. cruise for Feb. due to my having to be home for the birth of the new grandchild! This will be our 4th cruise and we'll be on the Tropicale Feb.10th. Quite excited about this new itinerary. Yes, we are addicted!

I'm a secretary at a University in Canaa. My husband works in the Media Department at the same University. We first cruised July 99 on the Sensation with our then 13 year old son and cousins who flew in from UK. Got home and started saving for the next cruise. Booked on Triumph July 2001 with our son plus his friend, and same family members from UK. They're hooked also.
