Default Barely back and want to go again, NOW!

We just got back from the Paradise less than three weeks ago and I'm so obsessed with cruising that I can't wait to do another cruise! There must be a 12 step program out there for someone like me!

The Paradise was our first cruise but I absolutely know it won't be our last.

Dh is in the military which makes vacation planning quite a hassle, never knowing very far in advance what dates we can have off for vacation.

We'd like to plan a cruise, just a small 4 day cruise, this December before the holidays where we would take our two small children. I'm already researching it and think we'll be looking at the Holiday out of Mobile, AL simply because it is the closest port to us. Then, I'm thinking even further in advance, we'll plan another 7 nighter for just the two of us probably in very early 2006.

Oh my, how addicting this cruising thing has become.

I feel your pain! How else do you think I talked hubby into booking a November cruise not 2 weeks after returning from our April cruise?;-)

I can relate!! My first cruise was with my husband's family in February. We sailed the Destiny from San Juan. It was such an amazing experience - I can hardly wait to go again!

Jk... it's really an evil plot by a world wide network of master criminals providing the unsuspecting with the best vacation of their lives, where they become so relaxed they lower their guards, and before they've realized it..... they're HOOKED!

Entire neighboorhoods become dilapitated due to lack of maintenance on the homes. People think...No need to repair those damaged and worn roofs; we need the money to cruise.

The economy becomes crippled because no one wants to buy new appliances or furniture. They'd rather book a cruise.

It really gets vicious!!! <VBG>

We will be going on the Paradise on 8/1 and I can hardly wait! I have been on 3 other cruises but our last one was back in 1991. We are now ready to start traveling again now that our son is 9. He was our surprise baby after 20 yrs of marriage. This yr will be our 30th anniversary so I thought we deserved it. The only problem is my addiction is now back!!
I already warned my DH about PCD and told him the only cure was to book another cruise as soon as we get back.
We will see what happens. I am just hoping our son has a good time. He is rather shy so hopefully he will enjoy camp carnival. I can't believe that it is now only a little over 2 weeks to go. YEAH!!!!!

Kris: I told you so! And what they say is true: the only cure for PCD is to book another one SOON! I am so glad to hear you are already researching another one to share with your kids, I'm sure they will enjoy it as much as you and James did! I wish we could go with you too - it was fun cruising with you on the Paradise! Drop by "Chit Chat for Cruisers" (under "People") some time and introduce yourself!
