Default How to past the time away till you cruise again?

Ok, I will admit it..... I am a reformed "LandLover".
I miss room service!
I miss the room being cleaned by my personal attendant!
I missed all of my meals being cooked for me!
I miss my balcony overlooking the Caribbean!
I miss the exotic ports of call!
Heck, I miss even the annoying annoucements!
But most of all, I miss my ship!
I have only 30 something days till I sail again and don't know what to do with myself?
Is this sad or what?????????

momx4,

You sound normal to me, too! At least you're closer than us-take a look at my clock !

I spend my time on this site, hoping the time will move faster, but also trying not to wish my life away!

Now where is my "frou frou" drink?

My hubby passed away 8/03. We first began cruising in 1969, for our honeymoon,. took kids in 1989 and 1990. Oldest did a cruise fior her honeymoon 8/03 and youngest is looking at Sept or Dec 05 for her honeymoon. I had recently had managed to cruise yearly between 12/1999 and 6/03 (after paying the mtg, wedding bills and college tuition).

I, personally, would LOVE to cruise a southern or western itrineray again this Nov/Dec or Jan/Feb or would even take/pay for kids and their spouses for Alaska 06 but the $$$ are WAAAY beyond my ability to cover w/ir from ORD.

Mom x4, Believe it or not, there's nothing wrong with you ! Your just hooked on cruising like the rest of us ! Welcome to the world of cruising !

Between cruises I spend alot of my time here on this web site reading about other cruises, all the postings . Reading everyones reviews, and looking at the photo gallery. That helps us plan our next cruise .
My kids ( son and daughter-in-law) just came off the Sensation , and they can't wait till next year ! They're ready to go again !

Happy sailing on your next cruise;
david

I guess this is pretty normal..........Thank God!

We was trying to limit ourselves to one cruise a year, after all for 6 of us it is $$$$.
Then it got the best of me and I found a way to sneak in another!
Within a week of returning from our first cruise, I booked the second!

I claimed it to be my "40th" birthday present from my family!
It is truely addicting..........Thank God I already have a 3rd booked for this coming April.
